Eranga and Viji are incredible hosts. They went above and beyond to make sure our time in Mirissa/Weligama was the best possible experience. This beautifully renovated old colonial villa had very spacious rooms and all the modern amenities we needed. Although it was a 15min tuk tuk ride away from the beautiful Mirissa and Weligma beaches we thought the villa was really good value for money. Trishaw rides were very reasonable and for us it worked out a lot cheaper than the accommodation near the beach. We have no hesitation in recommending this place.

Our stay at the Hilltop View with my husband and three young children was truly a wonderful experience for all of us. From the moment we arrived at the villa we found our hosts Viji and Eranga to be very friendly and accommodating. They made every effort to ensure that we had any requests catered for and that we were happy with all that was provided to us. The cook onsite treated us with delicious meals from both Sri Lankan and other cuisines, a real treat! The accommodation was a beautiful colonial villa set in a stunning estate, which we found to be very peaceful and relaxing. The rooms and the bathrooms were of a very high standard and also very comfortable with air condition. The hosts informed us of various local attractions that we may find interesting, which was great as it was our first time in Matara. It was easy to get to as it is close to the Colombo-Matara Expressway, which was a bonus. Definitely a stay I would highly recommend and we look forward to returning there. If you are looking for a place to relax with hill top views, be treated with delicious cuisine and comforts, embrace nature, then Hilltop View is definitely worth considering.

We stayed at Hilltop View with our children as an escape from the city and to experience and enjoy the beautiful Sri Lankan countryside, but with modern home luxuries. We were not disappointed! The hosts were fantastic and accommodating to any requests we had and provided delicious country food (including the best hoppers we had on our trip). The quality of the rooms and bathrooms were five star hotel level and extremely comfortable, whilst the main buildings exuded a quaint colonial feeling. The setting was beautiful, against a backdrop of a coconut estate, and it was very peaceful and serene. Our kids loved running around the whole estate during the day (which felt very safe) and we enjoyed sitting on the verandah in the evening with our cocktails. Matara is a great spot to access Galle (a must-see and very trendy), lovely beaches such as Unawatuna, Weligama and Tangalle as well as activities in Mirissa and Yala. A car and driver is needed generally in Sri Lanka to get about, but Hilltop View is a good central location to see a lot of Southern Sri Lanka during the day. The hosts also helped organised a car for us which was very convenient. We will definitely come back again and stay a bit longer next time. There's still so much to see!

Viji and Eranga are excellent hosts they were friendly, inviting and very informative. They made us feel relaxed and at home. The house was spacious with beautiful views of the surrounding paddy fields and coconut farm. There were visiting peacocks, parrots and other birds, buffalos in the nearby paddy fields. The house cook made us delicious breakfast and at request dinner as well. There was a range of meals both European and traditional Sri Lankan. While the home is located away from the hussel and bussel it was still very short distance to usual tourist destinations. We would highly recommend and would definitely return.
