"I loved everything about this hotel. I was a senior travelling on my own, so based on its excellent reviews and appealing photos, I booked for a long stay of 11 nights. I intended to use the hotel as a base for day trips rather than having the inconvenience of constantly moving to other places. I wasn't disappointed - the staff were extremely helpful in booking me into interesting activities in the vicinity of Kalaw, plus arranging transport. I wanted to explore the local area on foot - the manager spoke excellent English and assured me that I could walk safely anywhere in the town. She pointed out places of interest on a map and I enjoyed many walks in the pleasant climate (maximum 25degC in late October). Every morning I had an excellent breakfast in the garden - the young waiters really looked after me. The gardens at Hillock Villa are beautifully maintained and they also grow their own fruit and vegetables. Kalaw is a fascinating place with its alpine setting and British history."

"A wonderful and atmospheric place to stay. The Kalaw hotel first opened in 1903. It has now been restored for the most part sensitively to give modern comforts without sacrificing the charm. The rooms are simply but tastefully redone, and the hotel makes good use of some of the original furniture. The bathrooms are elegantly refreshed, with showers rather than baths. The hotel reopened recently, in December 2015, so a few things, such as the restaurant,are not quite up to speed. The young staff are hugely friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the valley in a quiet part of town about a ten minute walk to the centre. There are three buildings : the oldest is Acorn, the main building which looks to be from the 1920s is Pine, the modern annex Tudor built I think in the 70s is much less charming. "

"I was so excited about coming to this hotel - chosen carefully and specifically due to the lovely pictures, especially of the wide wooden balcony for meals with sweeping views over the Kalaw hills. This doesn’t exist anymore and has been replaced by a new structure that is basic, narrow with no charm. The price is just not warranted here for the standard of the rooms, meals and hotel. Yes there is a view but the photos of deceptive,"

"We thought it would be fun to stay at an old British Hill Station and we were not disappointed. The place is lovely and felt as if we were being treated like British royalty! The GM seemed new and was still learning about the hotel and about Kalaw but this did not hinder our opinion of the place!"

"Its not going to be the cheapest accoms in Kalaw but its probably the best guest house I have stayed at (only one night) in Myanmar as the rooms are clean and in very good condition. There's also a pretty good breakfast available on the roof (nice view) + they took care of my onward van tickets to Inle Lake. Note that the location is on a hill - maybe a 15-20 minutes walk from the train station. Don't bother trying to walk it with alot of heavy luggage or wheeled but w/o heavy luggage its an easy walk. You can walk to the market area where the buses or rather vans depart for Inle Lake + where there are some restos for tourists to eat at. The Wi-Fi did not work when I arrived but then it worked later in the day - this is typical for Myanmar. To be honest, there's not much to see in Kalaw and at the end of the dry season, the scenery is not exactly spectacular. For me, it was a good place to spend a night to break up a trip from Yangon to Inle Lake."

"We arrived to Kalaw at 1.30 a.m. in the morning. The bus from Nyaung Oo stopped in front of our hotel, so we decided to check if there was someone at the front desk. One guy was sleeping in the hall and, after telling him that we had a reservation for the following day, he let us crash at the back of the hotel, where they had some mattresses. Some hours later, one lady working at the front desk came and offered us some coffee and apologized for not being able to offer us a room, since they were fully booked and we had to wait until some customer had checked out. At 10 a.m. she gave us the key of our room, even though the check-in time was at 12 a.m. "

"Stayed in a superior room which is on the third floor with views over pagodas. Stayed one night and then one again after a 3 day trek so we could leave our luggage which was no problem. Fairly basic but clean. Beds ok but pillows hard. Good breakfast which fills you up ready for your day of exploring. Their 'Dream' restaurant just a hop, skip and jump down the road does lunch & dinner. We just had a drink there but their menu was extensive and fairly priced in lovely surroundings. The hotel has a hand drawn map of Kalaw with things to go and see. We spent a day walking (miles!) seeing all the sights but very enjoyable. A lovely town to enjoy a sweet coffee or green tea, people watching. Would probably stay here again if we were to come back to Kalaw but I predict they're going to have some stiff competition up and coming. Wi-fi was slow - but this is a general problem in Kalaw, not the hotel's. "
