Reviewed May 13, 2013

We were a group of 6 adults & 2 children. Our first halt. The welcome was good & the rooms were immediate given to us. We had the city facing rooms with good view of the city, railway station & the hills. The rooms were big but the baths a little small. The food was extremely good. The market is close by & walk able. A great place, a great hotel with very good staff.

Situated on hillside a tuk tuk ride from Kandy centre this big but "tired" hotel is still great value for money. Pool area was a hit with the kids and the staff very helpful. Room size very generous and comfortable with great views but bathrooms VERY tiny to the point of awkward!! Watch out for the monkeys! Not your small character filled Sri Lankan bungalow type accommodation - probably more suited to tour groups.

This has got to be one of the prime views in Kandy and definitely worth the long walk up the hill.
Staff are helpful and the hotel is very spacious with the panoramic view across the hills dominating the lounge restaurant and bar areas and this area is big.
There is a good pool and also table tennis and snooker to help you relax.
Buffet food served at both dinner and breakfast but food was good and varied. I would recommed.

Room Tip: The warning signs on verandah doors to keep monkeys out is serious. They are very cheeky and use any...

The Hilltop offers rooms with amazing views; however, there is noise from the train station below in the valley. The location is poor for touring the key sights and/or trying local restaurants and bars. Nevertheless, our room was large, clean and updated. Food and entertainment was above average; lovely pool.

Room Tip: Rooms by the pool, bar and/or banquet area can be very noisy especially if there is live entertainme...

Hilltop is literally positioned high on the hillside in the town of Kandy. The restaurant and bar area are both situated with large panoramic views across the hills and valleys and an excellent way to enjoy the cool evening air.
The hotel is a little tired in places but that being said its location make that not an issue. The staff are very friendly and the Buffett meals offer a good selection of Sri Lankan fare.
There is a pool which is deep and a welcome dip after a day touring the city and surrounding area. I will go back if only the view with drink in hand.

We stayed only two nights in this hotel. I really liked architecture of this hotel. Rooms are big, beds really comfortable, bathroom not so nice, but clean and hot water available at any time. Hotel has a nice swimming pool, also table tennis, billiard and maybe some other facilities that i haven't seen. Food in restaurant is also very good.
Since our agency booked hotel i don't even know the price so can't tell if it's a good value for price, but it's a very nice hotel to stay in while in Kandy.

Stayed for 1 night after we could not find the B&B we had booked into.
The reception staff were quite rude when we arrived, as if they were put out that we wanted a room to stay in.
The restaurant staff were quite friendly, but all staff seemed to be hanging around blatantly awaiting tips.
The room itself was fine, clean, but the red furniture stained my skin. The walls were exceptionally thin, and I was woken up in the night by the next room snoring!!
The food was pretty good, and we were allowed to order from the menu rather than having the buffet dinner.
