A very nice hotel with friendly staff. Our stay was for 3 days (2 nights), the stay was extremely satisfactory.The rooms were clean, the food was great and the pool was good. The only downside was that the rooms did not have a view. A good location for all those who are looking forward to visit Sri Dalada Maligawa and... More

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

Perched on the side of a fairly steep hill just out of the central area of town, this is a very touristy hotel. On the face of it there are some reasonable facilities. Swimming pool, wifi, games, bar etc. The restaurant was horrible. Local naff band walking around the tables, slow service and packed with westerners. However, the breakfast was... More

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.
