The Hill Club is definitely a step back it time. The hotel has a feel of a Scottish mansion and was originally established in 1876 as a “Club” for the colonials who used to go to Nuwara Eliya to escape the heat on the coastal plains. Even today it has Members and there are rules and regulations such as gentlemen can’t dine in the Member’s formal dining room without a jacket and tie (you can borrow one from the hotel, if you haven’t packed one!) or if you prefer you can eat in the casual dining room. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed in the Club.
