We stayed at Slightly Chilled again for 3 nights and were not disappointed. Recently extended to offer more accommodation - very nice modern lower floor rooms looking out over river - it is ideally located as your entry point to Adam's Peak. Providing a delectable Sri Lankan buffet dinner each night and yummy breakfast at the upstairs dining room with... More

Our 3 night visit here in January was our 3rd time here, and we will be back again! Sightly chilled is a fantastic place to stay for climbing Adam's Peak, located just a few minutes away from the start. The accommodation is great- rooms have everything you need, comfortable beds, hot showers and excellent wifi. The food is incredible- probably... More

Great hotel and a perfect location to climb Adams Peak! The price was including breakfast and dinner and the food was really great! (Pancake and fried egg with toast and buffet with several great local dishes) The rooms are clean and we had a great view from our balcony! We highly recommend this place !

This is a very well located guesthouse to use as a base for climbing Adam's Peak. The rooms are very basic but ample for their purpose and given the buffet spread provided at night and much needed breakfast provided after the climb (including pancakes and maple syrup - genius!) it represents good value for money. It also compares favourably with... More

It seems like the Dalhousie guest houses have a racket going where they can take advantage of the throngs of tourists and pilgrims going to climb Adam's Peak without really trying hard to please them or make them comfortable. Lots of people on here are saying, "what do you expect for a guest house?" Let me tell you, at this... More

Really a guesthouse, not hotel. Staff pleasant, food especially buffet dinner ok. Smallish, tatty room two floors downstairs with view over construction site. Peaceful until 2.00am, when guests leave en masse to climb Sri Pada! Would not recommend as place to stay longer then one night, but adequate, and breakfast much welcomed on return from climb.

This is (as others have pointed out) a guest house and not a hotel but they don't try to be a hotel. The good bits are the price (bargain), the food (traditional Sri Lankan buffet (included in price)) and above all the hospitality. Yes our room was down on the lower floor but the guys happily ran our bags up... More

We got a brand new room, all white, high ceiling, white tiles in the bathroom, hot shower and a balcony (didnt know when we booked, so a positive surprise!) It is a perfect start if youre hiking Adams Peak, which I presume you are, as there isnt that much else to do here. We booked two nights, taking the hike... More

Basic guest house. Our room was clean with a balcony and excellent view. Bathroom was basic, but adequate. Good night' s sleep prior to climbing the peak, and breakfast very good on our return. Staff very pleasant.

Basic guesthouse but did the job - very nice staff, wifi worked ok although only in the entrance / eating area, big clean room with nice views, bathroom OK (quite dated but clean), mattress was also OK although an extra blanket would have been nice. Breakfast was excellent but dinner was very basic, when we got to the buffet not... More
