I stayed 2 nights at the Hill Club during the holidays I spent in Sri Lanka with my family (2 kids 8 and 6) in April 2014. We did not appreciate much our stay in this hotel despite the unique feature of this old British mansion. We stayed in a standard room located at the ground floor at the back of the hotel was dim and not very clean. Definitely not a good value for money. Dinner time was an awful experience. As the main restaurant room has a very strict dress code after 7pm (suit and tie for men, appropriate dress for women) we resorted to the room service. We had to call 3 times and wait more than 1 hour before having the food served in our room. I must admit the food was of high quality. Another plus: the large expanse of lawn in front of the hotel where our kids enjoyed playing.
