A typical old time charming hotel in Kandy. Beautiful location. Big rooms..nice buffet.. typical of the old British charm. Located on a hilltop, viz the name, and you have a good view of Kandy. They have a good buffet dinner with live music which is very entertaining

Hill top in KANDY is good for stay,e xcept the fact that there is NO elevator and one needs to use the steps to go the restaurant and pool etc. is a draw back. The room and Restaurants are good and we had variety of food items for breakfast and dinner.Over all its good.

We only stayed at this Hotel 1 night. Kandy itself is a bustling city. Hilltop sits above this with stunning views. There is noise from the traffic and trains, but this is fairly inevitable anywhere in central Kandy, and did not bother us. The rooms are large, airy, clean and comfortable. The pool is OK, but often in shadow. It... More

Stayed here one night. The hotel is on the side of a large hill giving good views of Kandy. You cannot walk to and from this hotel unless you are a goat. There also appears to be no lift between the rooms and the rest of the hotel. The rooms are average size and need refurbishing. The food was average... More

Close proximity to Kandy town and surprisingly quiet for the most part. You hear the odd honking from the road or from a train. The service was good but no one is contactable from midnight to dawn. This would be a problem in an emergency. We tried contacting reception but no answer and the access was locked. The view of... More

Hotel looks very dated and worn and could do with a new set of furniture throughout! However the rooms are clean, the food ok and staff accommodating. The location gives good views over kandy, but I would suggest access needs improving as a bit risky walking up the steep lane at night as there is no footpath or lights.

It's actually good value for money. Nice, clean rooms, restaurant with a magnificent view and friendly staff. When the food also is good, what more to ask for. If you are a light sleeper, this hotel might not be your first choice as the railway station is just below the hotel.

We were 7 of us in a family and stayed here for a night on 2nd Mar, 2015. Its good hotel to stay in Kandy. Very close to the main city and places in Kandy. The rooms facing the pool are very nice and clean.
