The hotel itself is nice, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Our room smelt a bit gross but we got used to it. Our room had a nice view over Kandy. We ate in the restaurant one evening as we were told they served a la carte. When we arrived they only allowed us the buffet although it looked... More

One of the most economical places that I have ever stayed. It took quite some time for the driver to locate the hill on top of which it is located. But once there, it was a great place to be at. Large area and all very artistically done in wood and cloth. Large rooms with very nice view of the... More

We stayed three nights in the Hilltop Hotel in september 2013. At that time it was very quiet. We had a very big room (one of the cornerrooms) and large balcony with views over the pool. Breakfast is a buffet with plenty of choice. Diner starts at 18.30 wich is too late for us cause our son is tired by... More

Perched on the hill top with a nice view, it's a comfortable and clean place. Although it's fairly big, it still feels cozy. The breakfast buffet is excellent with a large variety of choices. They also have a small swimming pool for a dip to cool yourself down. The staff are very friendly and quick to cater to your needs.... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while on a tour. The Hotel is at the top of a hill obviously and has decent views of the Kandy town area and railway station (you will hear the toots early in the morning though).

A nice old hotel, we had a british colonial feeling when we stayed there for three nights. A steep narrow road up to the hotel, but it was no problem for us. Nice views, and some monkeys outside the windows, which we thought was very cool. The pool was very nice. The rooms were also very good, but maybe the... More
