My main reason for giving this hotel 4 out of 5 is that it is very well located for climbing Adams Peak. All of the other hotels in the area have awful reviews (hence why I don't think Adams Peak appears on any travel companies itinerary and it's only independent travellers that do this). The dinner and breakfast buffets were...

Perfect location, just by the start of Adams peak, and possible to do other good walks in the surrounding tea plantation area. Very happy with the dinner and the breakfast, and the view from the balcony. Good value for the price we paid.

We liked the buffet dinner and the breakfast after coming back from Adam's Peak. Staff is friendly. The room was big enough and we had a great balcony with nice view on Adam's Peak. Great location for this walk, I think it's max 15 minutes until the start of Adam's Peak. Do everything was fine, apart from the smell in...

This was an excellent place to stay before our Adam's Peak climb. The accommodation is very clean, bed was comfortable and we had a spectacular view out over the mountain. The owner of the guesthouse was so accommodating - helping us to arrange some last minute things (a beanie, rain jacket) and also arranged a guide for us for the...

Really nice place, clean & comfortable rooms, balcony to relax on, staff were really helpful. The food included is great too (breakfast and lunch). They let you check out at 12 which means you can have a couple of extra hours in bed after the hike. The only downside is poor wifi throughout the building.

We stayed at Slightly Chilled for about half a night as we woke up at 1am to hike up Adam's Peak. The rooms were very spacious and bright with beautiful views from the balcony. The bathrooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. We had both dinner and breakfast included in the price of our stay. The dinner was standard...

We were there in low season. Friendly staff. Nice rooms with great view. Okay dinner, but no beer or cold drinks. They put a cola in a freezer for 5 min. Excellent breakfast with pancances, eggs of your chosing (we choose omelette), fresh juice, and toasted bread with jam. Although crappy coffee.

The Rooms have mould on the Walls. We booked in advance via the Slightly Chilled Homepage & paid 250% more than walk in guests for the same room. The interior in the Rooms is not more than basic. In the price included Dinner is offered as buffet. My wife & I cannot recommend this accomodation.
