- Good Stay love the interior of the hotel.
- Neat & Clean.
- Dinner & Breakfast buffet was good great spread.
- Location of the hotel is within the city but the entrance road is above the hill so if you planning to walk the road is very steep its difficult for small kids & aged people.
- our room was neat & clean.
- staffs were friendly.
- the view from the dinning hall is spectacular.
- overall we have a good experience.
- rest minus points can be overlooked though i dnt hv much.

Our tour group of 15 people stayed here and most agreed it was one of the worst hotels of the trip. The rooms were dirty - including the bed linens. It was incredibly noisy - Kandy's main train station is right across from the hotel and the warning bells, alerts and announcements start at 4:30 am. The service was poor - promised bottled water didn't show-up until the tour guide complained to the manager. The only bright spot at this place is the restaurant. The dinner and breakfast buffets were very tasty with lots of choices. WiFi is available for a charge - and, like the rest of the place, it was pretty poor, too!

Hilltop is good hotel in Kandy. I liked the location and rooms, services provided are very good. I will also recommend to take the full package including the lunch and dinner, i enjoyed the taste and presentation of the meals here. It is very near to all the famous sightseeing. The swimming pool is also very good and located just between Rooms and the Restaurant. I will recommend you to take this hotel in every other condition except if you want a hotel not on a Hill. It does requires a skilled driver to take you the hotel as it located over a hill. It has a very co-operative staff. To conclude i would recommend this property to people going out to have fun and enjoy.

Room Tip: Standard A/c Room

I stayed with my family in the 3rd week of Dec 2012 in this hotel. The property is well maintained and standard room given was good (pool view). The hotel staff were pleasant. Food at the hotel resturaunt was good, but a bit pricey. As mentioned by others the property is on a hill, and walking uphill is difficult particularly for the elderly. Tuk Tuk is easily available at downhill , and all tourist spots are easily assessible. No good resturants are available at walking distance from the hotel.

The hotel usually handles large group-tourist entourages, so it may be harder for you to get good service if you're travelling on your own. But otherwise, this is a perfectly good hotel, perhaps one of the best in Kandy.
