We weren't expecting much out of Kandy! Its a cultural capital of Srilanka and we took it to be just another town in Srilanka. We were but taken by Surprise when we reached Hilltop! Its location is superb considering Kandy!
The rooms at Kandy are airy and they had a refreshing theme compared to other hotels in Srilanka. We felt at home at the very start! Their balcony opens up towards city and one can see railway lines below. Given that this hotel is at a height, we enjoyed the view in the morning when it was misty. There was music facility in the rooms as well with a few channels to choose from. Most of the hotels won't have these working. It meant this hotel refurbishes their facility often.
The first thing we did after check-in was to jump into the pool. The kiddy pool had facility for few games with balls etc. The kids thus had a real splash and didn't want to come out even for lunch. The food was usual at their restaurant. We expected better for sure given their standard. The morning complimentary breakfast was good, with a nice spread to choose from. Their restaurant wasn't stuffy like usual others, and quite spacious. We couldn't hear the folks on next table which was quite a compliment for this restaurant. The waiters though were quite clumsy with poor communication skills. We had to wait for more than 1/2 hr for our dinner!
The next day there was some local wedding party at the hotel and we could catch a glimpse of (& click some pictures) of locals in typical wedding attire. Overall this hotel is of good standard with nice facility, if only they could improve upon the service in the restaurant, with required staff training.
