A good budget hotel with good clean rooms, bathrooms, clean sheets and towels, has all the basic amenities needed for a good nights sleep after a hectic site seeing day. Hotel Hilltop is situated on a hill side with a spectacular view of almost the entire town of Kandy far down below, including the famous Buddha Tooth Temple, the railway... More

Stayed 2 nights on a tour and found hotel quite average. Rooms are fine but noisy due to random service phones constantly ringing, restaurant chairs and grills in bathroom into echoey corridor. Pool is not great for a relaxing afternoon but fine to cool down after a day out. Food and service in restaurant was great with live bands playing... More

We have stayed two nights in this hotel. The area of Kandy is not really our favourite area, but it was part of the tour. The hotel is pretty close to the center of Kandy so you can go there easily. The hotel itself was average, the beds are OK. The overall impression is that it could use an improvement... More

We were due to stay here for two nights as part of our trip around Sri Lanka. The welcome when we arrived was ok - nothing out of this world and nothing compared to what we had and subsequently received. We were escorted through the hotel which was a building site as they were renovating. It was not at all... More

it wasn't too far from the city so decided to stay in this hotel, as we didn't have any prior bookings anywhere. staff was friendly and the food was good. calm and quite. Bit of a old building if i'm not mistaken and had some warning on the windows about monkey's. overall the experience was good.

Had to park outside the normal parking area and had to move my vehicle twise to allow others to leave the premises. It... More

Our recent stay at the hotel was most comfortable and enjoyable due chiefly to the services extended by the Manager, Mr. Melder and his staff who displayed excellent customer relations and a genuine desire to help the hotel's guests enjoy their stay. The hotel and its environs are clean and well maintained. The structure of the building itself, with corridors... More
