If you need a place to stay the night before hiking Adam's Peak or the surrounding mountains, I would highly recommend this place. The rooms are clean and big, the views from the room of the river in the valley below are nice, and the dinner buffet is diverse and tasty. The staff were also particularly helpful. If I had...

We arrived quite late to the hotel. As this was the only place near Adam's Peak, where you could pay with mastercard, we had to stay there. They only had one room left, I assume the most expensive one (70$ per night with dinner and brekafast). It was pricy, but we can only say good things about the hotel. The...

We spent a night at the slightly chilled guesthouse before climbing Adams peak. Great little budget guesthouse. Lovely people, excellent evening buffet. Rooms were spotless and the best budget accommodation we have experienced in Sri Lanka. If you are doing the climb, they hold breakfast for you till you return. We highly recommend this place.

This is a good place to stay if you are going to climb Adam's Peak. Our room had a balcony with a brilliant view of the mountain. The room was large with a small ensuite bathroom. The shower had plenty of hot water but weak pressure. Everything was very clean. A buffet dinner was served from 6.30pm which was ideal...

Epic dinner. Good brekky. Clean room. Nice staff. AMAZING VIEW. 5min from the 'adams peak' start. We stayed directly beneath the dining room though. So we heard every step, fork and glass through the night. Not ideal. But would recommend, though felt it was a bit exxy. Though that might just be the area...

It's hard to fault Slightly Chilled as their rooms were spotless and dinner and breakfast were both included in the booking fee which was very reasonable in the first place! They also arranged a taxi for us to the train station at Hatton. The only slight grumble was that our room was down four flights of stairs which after hiking...

If you're doing Adam's Peak the chances are you want a simple and clean place to eat and sleep before and/or after the hike which is exactly what Slightly Chilled offers. The staff are really pleasant and helpful with tips on doing the climb and the property is within walking distance from the base of the climb too. The buffet...

The buffet dinner here was amazing - 4 different delicious veg dishes/curries including a great dhal, rice, noodles, fried savoury doughnut things...and amazing desserts including fruit, yoghurt, sesame seed treats and peanut brittle. We loved it!

Slightly Chilled is an ok hotel to stay at if you need somewhere simple when climbing Adam's Peak. Rooms were simple however pillows were terrible which didn't allow us to get a good sleep. The shower did not have any hot water however that was something they were working on. We had dinner and breakfast there and both were very...

The guesthouse is really basic. The only reason to spend a night here is as a base for climbing Adam's peak. The dining room is airy and has good views, and the food is reasonable, but the bedrooms are basic and smell damp. I do reccomand to check weather conditions and period for the climb. In July when it is...
