Good place, very centrally located. Full of retired Eastern Europeans. Buffet breakfast was great. Very big range & good food. Located on top of a large hill. Wifi was terrible but that's not a huge issue. Watch out for the monkeys getting in your room. They'll steal anything they can get their hands on. Rooms were clean & decent enough.... More

The only positive things I can say is that the hotel is situated high up which makes for nice views across Kandy, the rooms and decor are simple but clean, however the reason for the one star is as follows: There was a large group of around 30 Australian tourists who had positioned themselves in a big circle using all...

First impression - the climb up the hill to the hotel is pretty cool but not for the faint hearted, it is pretty high up! Upon arrival the staff seemed surprised to see us coming in and we had to approach them first. There appeared to be a bit of confusion like they weren't entirely sure what they were doing... More

This is not a place I would recommend, the room was over the railway station with trains and their whistles blowing on the hour every hour, the food was mediocre and some staff were not all that interested which is a rare event in Sri Lanka and certainly not experienced in the other 7 Hotels visited. Our room had a... More

We stayed only 3 days but there isnt much to do in kandy if u stay longer. The hotel staff was very friendly.. although there was a big misunderstanding before our check out they apologized and sent flowers and chocolate to our room everyday until we left. The dinner buffet was good and there was a music band playing live... More

Its good for two days visit to the city. Not far away fro city centre, you can still enjoy most of the attractions. And above all the city view. Staff are helpfull but food can be bought from outside restaurants to enjoy more traditional flavoure. A white palace restaurant as far as i remeber is a good choice just in... More

Large dated hotel with uninviting rooms and tiny old bathrooms. Lacks atmosphere. Beds are good and hot water for showers was good but rooms are old and tired. Can't open windows because monkeys come in. Breakfast was okay. Overall a 3 out of 5.

Kandy was our third stop in Sri Lanka and the hotels that we'd stayed at in the previous two stops were excellent. So we were disappointed at the Hilltop Hotel as the in-room facilities were not great. There is no wifi in the room, no hairdryer, the bathroom was old and stained and the water was not hot when we... More
