“Great hotel to do Adam's Peak”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

The owner and staff are very nice and friendly. They helped us out a lot. The location is just 700m from the start of Adam's Peak. They seem very organized and the breakfast is very very good. The best scrambled eggs my husband has ever had.

This guesthouse is in a great location. The staff is friendly and helpful. Everyone was very accommodating and the hotel was quite reasonable. The food was good and dinner and breakfast were included. The hotel serves you breakfast when you finish your hike and doesn't cut the time it is served. They also have a nice driver's room.

The hotel is close to the Adam's peak so it is a reasonable choice if you want to climb.
View is superb from the small balconies but the rooms are just acceptable and the official pictures are far from the reality.
The food is average, internet only works at the reception/restaurant, staff is friendly though.

This hotel has amazing views, including of Adam's Peak on a clear morning. It's in a perfect spot to climb Adam's Peak - just 10 minutes walk from the official start.

There's plenty of stairs if you're staying on the bottom level like we were but it's good preparation for the hike. The rooms aren't perfect but nice enough and good value for the price. It's a little noisy when people start leaving for the hike - some left at 2am - no need to go that early!!! - but that's not the hotel's fault.

The included dinner and breakfast were great, it's a small town and the buffet food was excellent, as was the service.

The only reason you'd come to this part of Sri Lanka would be to climb Adam's Peak.

Slightly Chilled is very functional. The food is delicious and the owners and staff are extremely helpful. The rooms are large, they have hot showers, and they pack you a picnic breakfast for your early hike up to the top of the peak (we left the hotel at 2am and summitted at 5:30 for sunrise, with a few tea breaks in-between).

Great location for Adam's Peak tour, and the staff is fantastic. Breakfast and dinner buffet is good. Only 10min walk and you start the climb. The hotel can arrange transport to and from Hatton if you come by train

One of the few disappointing things were old rooms with the old smell deeply soaked into the bed covers and sheets. They were trying to cover this up by turning on the air- cleaner which gave unpleasant chemical flavor. The bathroom needed a new life and hot water suddenly dissappeared few hours after arrival and only re-appeared few mins before check-out which was very unpleasant. The location is fantastic though, perfect for climbing the Adam's peak. It was also nice that dinner buffet and breakfast was included in the price, but the dinner food was kept up until the morning in the dining area! We accidentally happened to check one of those pots at breakfast....also, there were a lot of mosquitos, which did not bother about the liquid mosquito repellent plugged into a socket...
