Close proximity to Kandy town and surprisingly quiet for the most part. You hear the odd honking from the road or from a train. The service was good but no one is contactable from midnight to dawn. This would be a problem in an emergency. We tried contacting reception but no answer and the access was locked. The view of...

Hotel looks very dated and worn and could do with a new set of furniture throughout! However the rooms are clean, the food ok and staff accommodating. The location gives good views over kandy, but I would suggest access needs improving as a bit risky walking up the steep lane at night as there is no footpath or lights.

It's actually good value for money. Nice, clean rooms, restaurant with a magnificent view and friendly staff. When the food also is good, what more to ask for. If you are a light sleeper, this hotel might not be your first choice as the railway station is just below the hotel.

The only good thing that I can mention about the hotel is its panaromic view & the stylish pool area. Downsides were: - Difficult to reach there because of a the steep way, almost imposible to walk and even dangerous with car when it is raining - We stayed in 6 hotels in Sri Lanka this was the only one...

Hotel hiltop, as the name suggest is embedded in the hills of Kandy overlooking the city. It's an average hotel with spacious rooms in the refurbished wing. The staff are extremely attentive and courteous. Breakfast and dinner was ample and once again the chefs provided upon request separate vegetarian option. Hotel has a pool, but we did not use it....
