We moved to this hotel, for 3 nights, after our dire experience at the Heaven Seven. This small hotel is set in a quiet location on a hill overlooking the lake. and attractive countryside. The public rooms have recently been decorated and furnished very tastefully. The gardens are a delight. Unfortunately this is where the good news ends. The Agoda... More

Beautifully decorated, with all the essential amenities for the unhardened traveller - limitless hot water and hair dryers. Hillcot also boasts views of the lake and gardens with a rooftop balcony area. The staff were very attentive and the... More

The hotel is beautiful and has gorgeous views of the lake. It's about 2km from the main town so absolutely no hassle getting around. It is one of the quietest hotels I have ever been in. The staff are all very helpful if you ever need anything and really make you feel at home. The food there is also amazing!... More

If you are looking for a 5 star hotel this isn't it. If your looking for a small friendly run guest house where you feel totally at home then this is it. We stayed here for two nights as part of our tour of Sri Lanka and the manager and all the staff couldn't have made us feel more at... More

A well maintained house but a little on the cool side in the evenings. Bring a sweater. Our bedroom was on the first floor and was spacious and sunny. Having enough hot water was a problem for us. Our bed was comfortable and we woke at dawn as our curtains did not close. That was not a problem as we... More
