A photo of the Hill Club in Nuwara Eliya Sri LankaThe Hill Club is a private resort in the hills of Nuwara Eliya in Sri Lanka. This is an unofficial site providing resources, reviews and helpful information about Sri Lanka vacations, tourism and hotels. The name of the site is the Hill Club Sri Lanka and that refers to an old gentlemen’s genre club located in the hills of the beautiful Nuwara Eliya region of Sri lanka.

The address and contact information of the Hill Club in Nuwara Eliya are:

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.

    My wife and I stayed here twenty five years ago, and from what I have read it hasn’t changed at all, which is superb news. I always wanted to go back with my mountain bike. Now I would add to that a lap top and stay six months to write that book that everyone has in their heads. I cannot think of a better place, the service was brilliant, the atmosphere superb, the location excellent. I cannot conceive of a nicer place. Having just had to sit through ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ I thought I would see if this place had been bought by some multinational hotel chain and ruined. So pleased it remains unchanged.

  11. Sonja says:

    Indeed, a very special place.

  12. David Ross says:

    I was at The Hill School Nuwara Eliya 1949-1951 (it is now a Military Barracks). I stayed at the Hill Club about 20 years ago and hope to stay there again. It has a certain decadent charm which many of us like. I think some of the critical comments are unjustified. I hope it stays largely as it always has been.

  13. Your style is really unique compared to other folks I have read stuff from.
    Thank you for posting when you’ve got the opportunity, Guess I will just bookmark this site.

  14. My wife & I , Prof Ivor Jones,& daughter Dr Anne will be visiting Sri LANKA & would like to stay at the Hill Club as temporary members. As mentioned in LONELY PLANET . From 3rd November to 6th Nov. We have visited the club 2 years ago and would like to stay this time. The club has also been recommended by one of your members, Mr. Ajit Chitty.

  15. Lahiru W says:

    This is not acceptable at all. Why Sri Lankans cannot visit a hotel in Sri Lanka?

  16. Ravi Ramanathan says:

    we got indipendent in 1948 and still you dont allow srilankans to enjoy the facilities, but all cant become a member, please change your rules and regulation and treat the srilankans as srilankans.

      Mr.Ravi Ramanathan says that ” we got independent in 1948. “,May be he and his family must have got, but NOT THE MINORITY TAMILS who sacrificed their whole like to bring up this country CEYLON working with the previous rulers. Even Hill Club stands with a class as a result. !

  17. shan says:

    Sooo true. There are many hotels and even luxury house rentals in Colombo, where it is explicitly stated that they are only meant for foreigners. Apartheid – present-day Sri Lankan style.

  18. Robert jacobson says:

    I currently checked into this old relic and find the rules onerous. They asked me to where a jacket and tie to hang out in the lobby. Thank goodness for the dvd collection; i’ll happily stay in my room.

  19. R.VADHANA says:

    please send me the hill club hotel manager’s details and contect no.

    thank you

  20. Enrico Pereira says:

    I called the Hill Club earlier today to inquire about making a reservation and was very ‘politely’ told that the HILL CLUB is only for members and foreign passport holders and NOT for locals!!!!!!!!!!! Apartheid ????

    Regards for this terrific post, I am glad I found this website by a search.

  22. I wish more people would write blogs like this that are really fun to read. With all the fluff floating around on the net, it is rare to read a blog like this instead.

    I visited The Hill Club about 25 years ago. I recall it being very quiet, dull in fact and in need of a serious redecoration. My friend and I had a game or two of snooker on a moth eaten table, which had a sign declaring that the “First tear is 20,000 rupees”. When we asked how much the second one was you could have heard a pin drop.

    It’s fortunate chilfren under 5 aren’t allowed in, they would be bored beyond belief in minutes.

    • Oostendorp says:

      Diesselbe Erfahrung, die wir vor ungefähr denselben Jahren machten: im Haus wurde nur im Flüsterton gesprochen, das Personalverhalten -speziell der in Ehren ergraute damalige Hausbutler, der dort in 2. oder 3. Familiengeneration diente- sicher weitaus edler und nobler als sicher 90% der Gäste (uns inklusive): vor dem Dinner wurde meinem Mann seinerzeit von besagtem Hausbutler diskret eine Kollektion hauseigener Krawatten präsentiert, um der Kleiderordnung des Hauses zu entsprechen. -Auch wenn dies in heutige Zeiten längst nicht mehr passt, erinnern wir uns immer gerne zurück an dieses in jeder Hinsicht spezielle Hotel samt seiner wirklich durchgängig-konsequenten Retro-Atmosphäre!
