Nice hotel with a nice view on Kandy. We had a nice buffet dinner. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. It was just a bit noisy in the morning as our rooms were just below restaurant. We came by car, it might be a bit difficult to reach if by foot.

    Nice Hotel just above Kandy”
    We stayed here for two nights and thought the hotel was really good value for money. We arrived by bus from Negombo Beach and took a tuk tuk up the steep hill to the hotel, but you can also walk from the bus station if you don't have heavy luggage. The room was very large, pleasant and clean with comfortable beds. Unfortunately the wifi was too weak to work in our room, and was good just outside the door. Lovely staff that are eager to please. Nice pool with lots of sun loungers and towels. We didn't eat at the hotel but preferred to walk down the hill to the main road, where you can find a few cheap and good eateries. We loved the fact that the hotel is set up on a hill, above the madness and noise of Kandy traffic. We would definitely stay here again.

    Nice old hotel with fantastic view of Kandy”
    The hotel is old but well maintain. Good location on top of the hill with fresh air, easy to reach center of the city. But staff confused about my booking, while I show them electronic voucher. They request to show paper voucher. When I told them, I have not print it out, they seem to be not happy, and just leave my case their doing other people check-in. They keep us waiting for almost 1 hour to finish check in process.

    Staff, Comfort and Location
    Was a very relaxed and comfortable stay. The Front office staff (especially the young gentleman) who checked me in demonstrated excellent customer service skills. The Housekeeping, room service, conciege and security were all very attentive. The qulaity of food was not really upto my expectation (being a Aitken Spence Hotel)but the overall super service made up for it.

    It was a very pleasant stay. The rooms were big, nice and clean. The staff was very friendly. Room service was quick. Food tasted great. Staff paid special attention to my 4 year old child.

    Simple decor, all newly refurbished, ”
    Great restaurant and wine selection, perfect retreat from the hustle of the city
    the staff at a hill top were terrific, professional, friendly and attended to my every need quickly and efficiently. They are in the process of refurbishing all rooms with a pleasant bright decor. My room had a wonderful IWW of the city, with huge open shutter windows. Great to. View at the end of the day enjoying one of the hotels great wines. Pool is nice too. Don't be out off by the location, it is just a cople of minutes to the town centre, and the hotel he many tuck tuk drives on call. I never waited mor thank a few minute for one to arrive.

    Great value for money, nice quiet pool”
    Very nice hotel, close to the action but far (and high) enough to feel away from the madness. The common areas seem a bit dated, but it has its charm. Great staff, nice quiet pool. The pool view rooms are quieter but do not have a city view. However seems to cater mostly to tour groups. Food very expensive for Sri Lankan standards. I would still definitely consider it if I was coming back to Kandy, if only for the pool and the great value for money (food aside)

    Breakfast ok, the rest NOT !”
    Breakfast ok. Pool is nice / big but the chairs old / not comfortable. They accept tour groups. If you do not like tour groups as an independent traveller as i am don’t stay here ! They provide parties like wedding while you’re staying there as a guest, ... strange ... you have to make place for partyguest and have to listen to their music (till late in the evening). Located nearby a religious something, they start singing every morning at 5 am (!) for half an hour while you’re trying to sleep. I can’t appreciate this, you ? While we were there a football team i guess was staying in the hotel as well. The uses the corridors / pool / chill out area to practise ... what the ..? Why does management accept this kind of behaviour ? I am a guest as well .... is it they money ? A room on internet was eur 41. If you knock on their door without a reservation they charge you an amazing amout of usd 189 per night (ieks) ... a ridicilous price i say! Not going back ...!

    Good location and as it's on a hill top you can escape the noisy streets of Kandy. Driving up the hill top was very steep though. Breakfast was very good! Staff friendliness varied a lot. Some staff was very attentive but others not very pleasant.

    Don't let the hilltop location put you off.”
    We stayed at the Hilltop for a couple of days as our base to explore Kandy and were delighted with it. As a town Kandy is busy...very busy by western standards and a few hours in its crazy streets dodging Tuk Tuks , taxis, cows and wagons all screaming down streets exactly six feet wide will leave you begging for peace... and the Hilltop has it in spades. The rooms are beautiful, practical and clean. The staff are friendly and funny (as most Sri Lankans are) It says it's only 750 mtrs from the railway station, and it is but the distance is almost vertical so grab a Tuk Tuk at the station, it should cost around 200 rupees ( around £1 ) and it's 200 rupees well spent. Enjoy the Hilltop, we did and we'll be back.

Hotel has a swim pool , restaurant food was very good but little expensive . Break fast was buffet breakfast which was very good which most travelers would love it. View from our room was beautiful as Hotel was located uphill. I would certailnly recommend this hotel with no issues in room air con or toilet. Parking was available . Thanks for reading my review.

    From entering and receiving our welcome drink this hotel was great. Pool large with plenty of lounges. Buffet breakfast plenty of options. The view from our room and restaurant was overlooking Kandy. Bit of a steep driveway for walking but nothing too much for all the experienced tuk tuk drivers. Small gift shop open all hours!

    Stay for 2 nights good rooms food excellent. ”
    the food and the lively band at night. a quiet place at the top of a hill. good staff especially Chatura Rani who was always smiling and helpful. swimming pool facility is also good.also free wifi
    Lasting impression is of food and ever smiling Chathura Rani the ever smiling part time staff at HillTop. The ambience is good and as it in a quiet place atop a hill..its the best place to relax without the hustle and hustle of city traffic sounds...the live band at night and well stacked bar makes the stay enjoyable. Would certainly recommend the same for family, groups or individual travel.
