Location is perfect for Adam's Peak climb.
Hotel is average, rooms are very basic and the shower pressure is not good especially after the climb when all you want to do is get cleaned up! There was not enough water coming from the shower to shower properly let alone wash my hair which is quite long. I had to wait til we got to the next hotel to wash my hair. May not sound like a big deal but after spending all night climbing Adam's Peak, sweating like a pig for hours and feeling so gross by the time you get back to the hotel, a good shower is all we wanted!
Wifi did not work for us as there was no signal strength in our room. We tried to connect during breakfast at the ground floor/lobby area as well but again none of our devices could find the connection at all.
Other than that, the staff are wonderful and quite helpful. If you need budget accomodation for the night then Slightly Chilled is a good place to start your climb (if you don't mind the shower that is!).

Room Tip: Request a room close to ground level. The last thing you want to do after Adams Peak is climb any more stairs! :)

We stayed here in late April for one night to do the Adams Peak climb (see separate review). The room was basic but very clean and comfortable, and we didn't see any mould or cockroaches which other reviewers have mentioned. We had hot water and a patio and the room was spacious. I booked directly via the guesthouse website and the owner also arranged a tuk tuk transfer from Hatton train station. A Sri Lankan buffet dinner was included in the room rate and this was really tasty and filling with lots of vegetarian options. We went to bed early and got up at 2am to clim Adams Peak. We got back to the guesthouse at about 8:30am and enjoyed the inclusive breakfast. The guy on reception was friendly and helpful and even played a few songs on our guitar. Overall this was a good place to stay and we would recommend it to anyone thinking of doing the Adams Peak climb.

The owners of the place are lovely and provided excellent service, friendly, generous and with a smile. The room was clean. We couldn't get internet in our room as it was in the basement but nonetheless accessed internet from reception. Lovely breakfast and buffet dinner- homemade food! The view from breakfast room is breathtaking. Walking distance to Adam's Peak.

The hotel has two names Yellow House and Slightly Shirley, don't be fooled it uses the Chilled name. The personal is nice and helpful but the room itself... In short, budget hotel for the hill climb with a nice breakfast. We have seen fungi(due to the climate), cocroach.

Management were really helpful, food (Sri Lankan buffet) was delicious, rooms were fine! Best bit is how easy it is to get to start of Adams peak hike. If festival time start really early (ie the night before) otherwise you won't be able to get to the top!
