We stayed here with a group. The hotel is very nice and very well located in Kandy. The staff are friendly and courteous. If anything, they were perhaps a little too attentive in the restaurant but I don't particularly like having my chair moved for me so perhaps I am being over critical! The menu was good and the food... More

We stayed here three nights after our original hotel let us down. Our travel agent hat illy arranged this as an alternative and we were lucky to stay here as kandy very busy this weekend. This is a Very accommodating hotel with excellent food, good bar and pool and great attentive friendly staff. Glad we stayed here instead!

We stayed here for 3 nights in late October. The room was spacious although the bathroom could have done with an upgrade but everything seemed clean enough. The room overlooked the pool and we opened our balcony door all the time and were't troubled with monkey's. We found the buffet interesting and varied for breakfast and dinner, which is lucky...

I was first time in Sri Lanka and this was the third hotel in our journey. Some people write there that they heard some noise from trains, but I heard nothing even if I slept in room with the view on Kandy, not swimming pool. I have seen no monkeys and the bath room was clean. I should reccomend the... More

We had a good time at Hotel Hill top, Kandy. Spend 2 nights in Oct'12. Nice rooms as well. Only thing to watch out are the insects. As it is located on a hill & lot of greenery around you mighgt see quite a few lizards & insects.

We had a two nights stay here . Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Good Sri Lankan spread and American breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets were OK not much of a spread like five star hotels . We can give average. Staff service was excellent and friendly all the time. We stayed in the old building. Thus the rooms were not that... More

Did we have hitches but the staff are friendly and breakfast delicious. Had problems with AC and hot water. But got it rectified after bringing it to the notice of the service staff. Bath room closets had problem in draining the water. Clean and approachable to all nicer locations of the city.

The hotel is located on top of a hill in Kandy and is quite a climb and distance from any shop. Nice place but the rooms could have been done up better. Also the bath room was stinking. Loved the resturant over looking the city and has a nice pool.

Reception staff were welcoming and armed with the welcome drink. The room was spacious and clean, however there were no duvets. Just plain sheets so it got a bit cold at night. The room balcony faced the pool below and had a partial view of the valley as the restaurant below blocks the full view. However their glass-walled restaurant has... More
