“Good for a day's stay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2013

Central location on top of hill is the biggest plus, has spacious rooms with LCD and good view of city. Hilltop has a restaurant attached with lounge bar, had a good dinner entertained by music band playing English & Hindi songs, morning breakfast was also nice, spread buffet and very good service at restaurant. Renovation work was going on hence it was bit noisy near our room and also dirty at some areas in the hotel, hygiene was found lacking. Big draw back was room service, despite repeated calls to reception hardly anyone attended, experienced 2-3 times during a day's stay.

We opted this hotel as we want to go for a 'Business Hotel', and it resembles the same when reviewed on the net. 200 series rooms are newly built and are quite good & spacious, but 'under-construction' facilities. Btw, as the name indicates, this hotel is located on top the steep hill. Overall - Good facilities & cordial staff...but overpriced.

At the top of the hill, spacious and good rooms, lack of light bulbs, need to improve public areas like corridors and stairs. Noise from train station all night! Expensive buffet dinner altough the selection of good!
Forget to move out of the hotel at the end of the day! No free wi-fi!

told by freinds it was a good hotel we were disappointed. Arriving tired our room newly revamped and not really finished( the electricity was a bit dodgy) it was difficult!
our sheets were dirty staff were very slow to react (if they did)
and there was wifi if you paid and found a place where it was provided
restaurant was acceptable
town noise from the trains was ever present!

We thought it was a nice hotel. Staff were nice and the room had a nice balcony/view. Good walking location, only 15 minutes to kandy lake. Nice cold pool which was a nice surprise! We were b+b and the breakfast had a nice and big spread! All in all a great hotel...

We had a room at the station side, with a nice view.
The room was clean but very noisy because of the trains.
Need a tuk tuk to go into town, costs ca. 250 rupees.
Dinner and breakfast were good.
You have to pay for wifi.

Room Tip: Bring earplugs
