“god hospitality”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

I was there with my wife two weeks ago. we spent one night on halfboard basis. They provided good dinner and BF. We went Kandy to wership "Dalada Palace" so we could do it better way. We came back with good and sweet memories.

Complete let down, staff was unprofessional and had no clue! Lack of parking space and should only be given one star. It says managed by Aitken Spence and they should exit if they can’t even provide a average service. Second night was booked through agoda on a disc rate and upon my check out receptionist asked me how I booked it and asked me to pay the diff saying that they don’t have the booked rate. I was asked to wait nearly 15min and once they got hold of Aitken spence reservation I was allowed to leave. Receptionist seemed my father’s age and GM had to be called in to resolve the issue, what a pathetic service.

Good side:
Location is very good. Not in the busiest part of the town but still in town.
Rates are cheaper when compared to other hotels.
Staff -helpfull and friendly.
Rooms are clean, large.

Bad side:
Food was terrible. I advice to stay here in the BB basis (If you can mind the breakfast) and go for other places for meals. Food was simply not tasty at all. This applies to both western and local foods.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in April. I must say its an old hotel but maintained well. Service staff is really co operative and overall a nice & moderately priced hotel with amazing views.

Room Tip: Always ask for the Hill view rooms.

I am very please with the staff and how they treat you. Food was lovely and generous, and I had a wonderful time during my 4 day visit to Kandy. Thank god there was a warning about the monkey visits to the hotel grounds, and it was a surprise to see them up close from my room. I was at the top floor which had a good views across Kandy. It was worth the money I have spent there and I liked how the hotel was set up. Had a great ayurvedic massage too which was relaxing.

For an Aitken Spence hotel, Hilltop rooms and service are terrible. Our stay at hilltop was far below what we expected. Never booking hilltop if we are staying in kandy ever again. For a Rs.1000 more, the Suisse hotel provides excellent rooms. I would not recommend hilltop to anyone.
