Over the years I'd heard many good things about the hill club and wanted to check it out, I'd laughed about how men needed to wear a jacket and a tie to have dinner there. And Rightly so , I thought. However in January of 2016 I went to visit ( for the first time), we were hassled by the... More

and that is exactly what it is. Not our choice of hotel but very quaint. Food wonderful although the restaurant a little daunting. Rooms big with a very timed out bathroom! One of the charms is the hot water bottle placed in our beds each night.

Stayed 2 nights in a lovely room overlooking the front of the Club. Although the room was a little tired it was charming. As it could be a little chilly up in Nuwara Eliya hot water bottles were put into the beds. A lovely thought. Really enjoyed the formal dinners served by a white gloved waiter. Very nice having the... More

This is my fifth visit and I just love the ambience of old colonial England. What more can I say? Everything is right up my alley. If you go,don't forget a jacket and tie!! Ladies dress accordingly. Remember,you are stepping back to the past.

This hotel was part of our tour so we didn't choose it ourself, having read the trip adviser comments we feared the worst. We stayed in the north suite and apart from two big water stains on the wall the room was very nice. Old fashion furniture gave the room a nice feel, and the bathroom was modern and clean.... More

With excellent decor and huge grounds, this colonial hotel preserves its quaint legacy. The location is good, the food superb and the service excellent. Nuwara Eliya is a small town and all places are easily accessible from this hotel.

Having read the reviews, was concerned that place may be a poor choice. Was glad I saw this for myself - it proved to be a great place to stay in & was thoroughly enjoyable. The key to staying here is to be conscious that it is a private members club with some rules - as compared to a 5... More

This place could have been the highlight of our stay in Sri Lanka and was on its way to being so, at least for the first day. What happened on the second defies belief ...but more about that in a moment. The Hillclub is brimming with history and atmosphere - a musty old Billiards Room, a Reading Room full of... More

Having stopped in several basic hotels this was a lovely experience. The room was large, clean and with a large clean bathroom. The view was none existent but we didn't pay for one either. We had dinner which was another experience and was excellent including the service. However, for Sri Lanka the prices were higher and with the hard sell... More

We stayed here with a group. Horrible! Our room had colored glass tiny windows that looked out on the service area and gas bottles. Staff stood under them and talked early in the morning. We had dirty carpet and a dirty bathroom. The staff was not around when you needed them. We had a "formal" dinner which was mediocre. We... More
