Although we do not endorse or sponsor the Hill Club, we are happy to pass on this information to potential Sri Lanka travel or vacation visitors.
Reviews and information can be found at Tripadvisor, and here are some excerpts:
“The Hill Club doesn’t pretend to be a five star hotel, but it has obviously decided to open its doors to tourists, … It has rules, such as the wearing of a jacket and tie in the evening. This didn’t worry me at all….”
This person was not happy: “The rooms are cold, and only supplied with a one-bar heater. The carpet is worn and even ripped in places. ” Can’t please everyone, but, “The rooms are enormous (could have fitted 5), the Chalet charming,”
“Entering the Hill Club is like stepping back in time. It’s like the colonial era never ended. It is a gentlemen’s club and unfortunately the staff seems to despise everyone who is not a gentleman – or worse, not even a man. ” Hmmm.
“The best way to view the Hill Club is as a themed attraction than a hotel. We stayed for one night and really liked it. The place is stuck in a bit of a time warp – but for us, that really added some charm.”
There you go.
According to the Wikipedia review, the membership in the club is “limited to British and Europeans”. I guess that cuts out us Americans, oh well.
The building itself is constructed of stone and timber. The club in Nuwara Eliya was founded in 1876 by British coffee planters.
