The hotel is remote and on a hilltop hence its name. We spent our first night in Sri Lanka here and we were made very welcome at the hotel by excellent staff. The front of house guy on reception is an asset to the Hotel. We had a quick sandwich in the restaurant on the afternoon and it was excellent value for money and very filling. The hotel caters for Wedding couples and their homecomings so the afternoon was extremely busy and noisy. This isnt a negative remark it is only an observation. Breakfast was very good and we enjoyed it. We were so tired after traveling we never really noticed the noise from below. But looking back on our whole Sri Lankan experience dont let the noise put you off. We were woken up at 5 quite a few mornings by the muezzin calling the faithful to to prayer. It breaks dawn at 6 and you dont feel so tired.
You cant eat anywhere but at this hotel but I would say the hotel food is quite good but you have to remember when eating in hotels there is a 10% service charge and a 12 and a half percent Vat levy . If you needed to eat elsewhere the taxi service would eat up any savings. The views from the hotel are quite good and the pool although small looked inviting. We had an enjoyable stay. If you need to change currency try and change it at the local exchange bureaus. You get a good rate and much better than the hotels or the local banks.
