We stayed for 4 nights in that hotel. Located 10-15 mins away from kandy up on the hills, the hotel has extremely beautiful view, so you can enjoy sunrise every morning. Staff was very nice and friendly. Mr Uncle( sorry, don't know his real name) made a very delicious dinner for us upon request. However, can't say room was very...

Stayed here as a group of 6 girls for one night when visiting Kandy. The rooms were lovely and very clean. Both dinner and breakfast were great. It was a little hard to find when we arrived at night but the owner was really welcoming and helpful and arranged our transport back down the hill to Kandy the following day.

We stayed one night. We have a driver. The place is clean and nicely equipped. The bathroom in our room was external but private. The manager was very nice with us. Is quite far from kandy, uphills and difficult to find. But with a driver is no problem at all.

Location of the hotel was difficult for tuk tuk driver to locate. It would be better if hotel provide pick up service from Kandy train station. There was only 1 male staff, Kumar who was really friendly and helpful. As it was the Sinhalese New Year, cook and other staffs has returned to their hometown. We requested for dinner via...

We are sorry to hear that you have had an issue whilst being at the hotel. Since you had gone quite a distance without realising the loss of money it became that much more difficult to investigate and find out what could have happened. The investigation is being carried out as we speak and as a counter measure to prevent...

We liked The Hills Lodge so much we ended up staying there twice- on the way down to the South of Sri Lanka, and on the way back up. It feels more like a home than a hotel. The owner Kumar was very helpful, and doubled as our private tuk tuk driver. The hotel is located in the hills above...

We stayed in this very nice small hotel for a few nights. The room was clean and we had everything we had. It is located on a hill with nice views close to Kandy (the staff organizes you a tuk tuk which is downtown in 5 minutes) and enjoyed the calm environment. The staff was amazing! Kumar and the cook...

We had a truly amazing time at The Hills Lodge in Kandy and will definitely visit them next time we are in Sri Lanka. The perfect views overlooking the mountains and in the night the views of the city lights far far away into the dark night. Amazing weather (cooler than most places) and some authentic Sri Lankan food and...

I do not recommend staying at this hotel for anything. As we go to breakfast at 7 am, they entered our room and stole between rupees and euros a total of 250 €.They did it in a subtle way, that is, they did not steal all the money only a part. (We know exactly how much was because we had...

After a long train ride from Ella we finally arrived at The Hills Lodge. It is a nice place just outside the city. It should be a great place to stay, if the manager wouldn't be that pushy. We weren't in for 5 minutes or he started asking if we wanted to some thinks and he could brings us everywhere....

Kumar is a terrible manager. We booked via booking.com. It is advertised as having 24h reception, car park and free wifi. I can only speak on behalf of the first two since I never stayed at the place. There is only one spot for parking your car and there is no 24h reception desk. The place is very difficult to...
