We stayed there with friends and Family in the month of Earlier May 2016. Very good hospitality. Peaceful and Good Rooms. Enjoyed the Stay. The Manager-Mr.Brain and all the sub-staff, even the cook also taking care very good. Enjoyed scenic view from Lakeview room. Viewing Sea-plane landing and take off in the lake from the lake is very good experience.

We booked for a one night stay at the Hillcot Residence. We had reserved 3 rooms directly by email but when we arrived the manager had no record of our booking - despite us calling a few days in advance to confirm. It seems that the parent company which handles reservations had not passed on our booking details to the... More

Great, quiet location away from the fuzz in town. Colonial style house with beautiful views of Gregory lake. Friendly & attentive service at all times. The food was good & plentiful, both for breakfast and dinner. Walking distance to the city. We'd easily stay here again!

Fantastic old property tastefully converted into a guesthouse with views of Lake Gregory. Excellent service from the staff. My only suggestion is that they need to provide a mosquito net for the bed: there wasn't one and the room was full of mosquitoes...

Had a wonderful time here with my wife. The rooms are spacious and the view is beautiful. Food was great and so was the service. Mr. Hemantha, the manager is very helpful and promptly attended when needed.

Stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. While I would agree that Hillcot is slightly on the expensive side I could not complain about the room or service. Lovely clean room with incredible view of Lake Gregory. The staff are great, really friendly and attentive. I didn't have any communication problems as other reviewers have commented. We... More

This colonial style house has a lovely atmosphere and overlooks Gregory Lake. We stayed in room 3 which was spacious, with a Queen-size bed and a recently replaced shower unit. The location is only a 20 minute walk to the Town/Victoria Park. The staff are very friendly and want to help. Unfortunately there is a language barrier for those who... More

We stayed one night there & we were given a room with a balcony with a direct view to the Gregory lake. Garden & rooms are well maintained. Staff is so helpful & friendly. Dinner & breakfast was simple, but it was delicious.
