This place is absolutely stunning and it has kept its history not wanting to sway from it in the slightest which is a good thing and a bad thing simultaneously. It was great to see the old furniture and photographs and everything which was all well maintained. However, the dinning experience and the service was a bit too old fashioned... More

A part of Colonial Sri Lanka still in existence. A unique fine dining experience. Good food at very reasonable prices for members. Very comfortable accommodation. He shill Club brings a great mix of colonial nostalgia and a homely service culture.

An fascinating place to visit for a day or two, a trip back to the early past of the last century. Go for a room at the front to the house, my wife and I were given a room at the back, and were woken up to very loud shouting and renovation work in the room next to ours. Having... More

We booked specially for my birthday dinner, having enjoyed a visit to the Hill Club last year. Sadly, although the waiters did their best and there was a beautiful bowl of roses on our table, this was not sufficient to mask the fact that the food was not good enough for a hotel of international standard. The starter was slices... More

My room had a bathroom with a leaky faucet, but they did get it fixed. There was a lot of construction work inside the hotel, hence it was very noisy. Apart from a few exceptions, the hotel staff in general had a 'don't care' attitude. The breakfast service was 'very' slow. The manager spoke in a very crude and strict... More

Nice hotel, staff very friendly, made a fuss of because we are on honeymoon, which was nice. Only problem was hubby didn't like wearing tie and jacket to dinner, there was another restaurant but they really wanted us to eat in the main one! Very old fashioned style but quaint!

A lovely experience, from the drive up the flower and ancient tree-lined drive that leads to the ivy-covered reception portico to the hospitality extended to us by the staff throughout our stay! The gracious ambiance of this classic British Club facility is well preserved. Our superior room was large and classically appointed with all amenities required for a comfortable stay,... More

If you look very carefully, you can find ways to criticise this establishment. However, go with an open mind and enjoy it for what it is.....a piece of history. There are very few places in South East Asia that can offer this type of Colonial experience. The Hill Club is right up there with the best. I long to return....

This hotel offers an incongruous and intense Sri Lanka experience; it's also excellent value for money at the current price. The general air of faded grandeur and the retention of bygone standards (dressing for dinner, repairing to the fire for tea and petit fours after the meal, the billiards room, the signposted "ladies entrance") made me think long and hard...

This is a precious jewel from a bygone era. The building and some of its contents have a well worn feel about them, but many aspects of its gentleman's club origins remain. While we were waiting to check in, I was whisked away by a staff member to show me the formal dining room, where I was happy to make... More
