        The location was difficult to find from thr raod and again instructions on how to find the hotel by car were poor.

        1. I liked the room itself because it was clean. 2. The breakfast was good.

        1. the internet was not working at all! We bought 3 different internet cards and the system was down the whole 3 days we were there...we had to walk a long way or take a tuk tuk to the nearest internet cafe to surf the net. When we checked out they tried to still charge me for internet but I refused to pay for it because it didn't work! 2. we stayed in room underneath the dance floor/restaurant. They had a wedding that went until 11:30pm which we didn't mind but after wards the staff moved the whole restaurant around and it was soooo loud! I had to go up there in my pj's and ask them to stop, they didn't then my husband went and they didn't. then i called two time after that and they still didn't. we couldn't sleep until 1am. It was very rude o them to do that to their guests. 3. At the checkout they charged my credit card for the amount but we waited 45 minutes for them to try to fix their credit card machine because it wasn't working at almost an hour at the checkout, i told them we had to go so finally he brought out another machine and charged my card again and told me he would email me the voided receipt for the previous bill charged on the broken machine.4. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. 5. It is pretty on the outside but looks can be deceiving they sure fooled us.

        Nice view of Kandy city from the hotel!

        Hotel towels needs to be bleached as they have stains! Food quality is really bad ( over cooked).

        Decent views of the valley below; good selection of curries offered in breakfast buffet

        Commercial WiFi hotspot in the lobby area the reception had no vouchers allowing the use of it, neither on the first nor on the following days; room needs painting and deep cleaning; tiny bathroom with door swinging inwards - and dirty too; towels and bed linens were grey-white and ragged; buffet dinner only, with limited choice of foods; noisy evening functions for package holidays groups held in the restaurant area; not a hill-top hotel, despite the name

        The view is beautiful. Rooms are big. Nice pool.

        The bathroom windows are open to the hallway. You hear everything, including at night and early morning...

        Wonderful views over Kandy. Good breakfast buffet menu and service. Most staff were helpful. Comfortable room.

        Room boys did not explain how to use A/C system, the controls were very difficult to find. Late night music from a private function. Two lights in room were not working and room service menu was not in folder. Housekeeping staff need to ensure rooms are up to standard.

        Loved the location, staff was friendly, breakfast buffet was okay. Take the tuktuk to the hotel from the railway station for +- 250 rupees, when you want to visit the city just walk down the hill and there will be tuktuks waiting.

        Bathroom could use a little touch up, we didn't understand why they felt the need for a huge flatscreen tv, but decided to skimp on the bathroom...
