There are only 4 rooms in this antique villa. Each room is more or less same and spacious. I like their old furnitures. The hostess is warm and prepared good breakfast. Although the breakfast charges 400 LKR/person, kinda expensive by comparison to the local consumption but it is worth to have this breakfast joy in the antique atmosphere.

Castle Hill must have one of the best views in Kandy and this is one of it's main strengths. Equally, if you want to experience staying in a house from the start of last century then this offers a great experience with much of the funiture from this period, and the art deco style of the house fully retained. And...

Castle Hill is a beautiful Art Deco house overlooking Kandy lake. The house is like a time warp, with everything seemingly un-touched since the 30s. The house staff are very helpful and charming, offering advice, great service and smiles any time of day. At 3800 rupees (about £22) including breakfast, the guest house offers reasonable value for money, but not...

wonderful quiet location out of the hustle and bustle of Kandy but walking distance to everything. Views over the town and lake are brilliant. Massive rooms which looked unchanged since the 1930's. Watch the fruit bats at sunset but use insect repellant. Highly recommended

Just returned from a fanastic honeymoon spent in Sri Lanka and Maldives. During our first week in Sri Lanka we spent 2 nights at the Castle Hill Guest House and loved every minute of it. The owner is lovely - very welcoming and friendly and happy to chat to you about what to see and do in the Kandy area....

Beautiful art deco building, with fab views over Kandy. The rooms are huge and comfortable but the bathrooms were dirty and shabby which was a real shame. It is worth staying just for the location though and far better than staying in central, noisy Kandy. Beware the sausage dogs, they are very fierce.

We really enjoyed our stay at Castle Hill. The hotel has a very faded glory, with vast rooms. Our bedroom was enormous, with four beds a table and chairs and an eclectic collection of huge antique bedroom furniture. The bathroom was ancient, dimly lit with towels grey from overuse, but it was all clean with plenty of hot water. The...

After a terrible 2 nights stuck at the Queens Hotel (see review) with food poisoning acquired in Colombo, we decided to get out of this colonial --- and ran for the hills. Just about a 10 minute hike up the hill, we found paradise. The Castle Hill hotel is set in a beautiful garden above the city of Kandy. The...
