We were staying at Nu El for one night at a different hotel, however came to The Hill Club for lunch. This property is restricted to members and members from other affiliated clubs. We used the later to have lunch here.

A wonderful property, excellent setup, courteous staff, great kitchen, and gorgeous gardens on the property.The property has maintained its heritage look and this adds charm to the property.

We came unannounced had a la carte lunch for 30 odd demanding persons in their main dinning room. Served with a smile and within time. I tasted a few dishes all were one better than the other. It was a wonderful well spent afternoon

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for taking time to share your experience at the Club during your short visit for Lunch. This is a unique colonial property which has maintained its heritage look with the most beautiful garden in the Hills.

We are happy to hear that you were privileged to enjoy our hospitality and meals at our dining room.

Once again, it was a pleasure serving you and we look forward to welcome you to Hill Club for a stay on your next visit.

There is no question that the grounds and colonial era building that houses the Hill Club feels like travelling back in time and that alone makes it an essential stop in Nuwara Eliya. The halls are lined with historic photos and the staff is incredibly attentive in showing you around. The rooms are lovely with a hot water bottle left on turn down service. We were particularly well looked after by the charming bartender Croos who has been with the hotel for 18 years and who even attempted to teach us the rules of snooker. The only disappointment as in the morning when we were told that the Sri Lankan breakfast option was not available and the only alternative was a bland continental serving. Overall it was a very unique experience to stay in such a well preserved piece of history and you will certainly be looked during your stay.

Stayed at the Hill Club for two nights. The place was easy to find. It had the real colonial atmosphere. To dine in the main dining hall we had to wear the jacket & tie, for which we were prepared. The service was good. The choice on the set-menu for the evening was poor. Opted for curry & rice from the al-cart menu which was good. Unless you order the night before you can't have the Sri Lankan breakfast, which were not informed in advance. The Western breakfast was poor.
The room was spacious. Although we requested a double bed we were given a room with two single beds put together. Which was very uncomfortable and we were unable to have a good nights sleep. I would not go there again.

Stayed here for 1 night only whist on 2 week tour of Sri Lanka with my in-laws. Upon arrival you drive through immaculate gardens before arriving at a fairly impressive building.
As soon as you enter the reception area you quickly realise this hotel is steeped in nostalgia from a bygone era. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The addition of hot water bottles in bed was a charming surprise.
Each morning in the reading room, members of staff gather and stand to attention whilst the Sri Lankan National anthem is played.
All staff are very friendly and keen to please.
We did not dine here but chose to walk down into town to find a local restaurant.
Would only recommend for a 1 night stay
