A beautiful hotel. Book early. Staff were incredibly friendly. We enjoyed playing on the grass and in the pool. The restaurant was pricey but good. Excellent breakfast. The hotel was full and we weren't able to stay for our last night and accidentally left with the room key. When we went back to return it they were only pleased to... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. It is set in a beautiful old Dutch home with the rooms added in a quadrangle out the back of the original house. The rooms are enormous but unfortunately the only seating is two wooden chairs. A lounge or a couple of arm chairs would have been nice. The staff are friendly... More

Loved the cute honey coloured bunny rabbit and all the pet rabbits hoping around the green square. Full of character! Rooms spacious and luxurious. Top notch service. Pool was amazing, kind pool attendant knows everything about the local flowers and plants in the surrounding garden area. Beware of flies outside at breakfast, staff kindly moved us into a nice air-conditioned... More

This stunning old mansion house was our oasis from the busy hustle of Galle. The manager (Nehal) rescued us from a previous hotel in Tangalle, where our experience wasn't what we'd expected. We emailed him at 22:30 the previous eve and a car was waiting at 8:30 the next morning to whisk us to the Tamarind Hill. We arrived to... More

A warm greeting by Sameera, guest relations officer, set the tone for the rest of our stay at Tamarind Hill. Shantha was our truly lovely waiter who looked after us always smiling and tending to our every need with grace and humility. Suresh and Prasanna were also highly trained and on hand at a moment's notice to assist with serving... More

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our trip and were upgraded to a suite on arrival. The room was literally huge (done tastefully in the colonial style to match the beautiful building), the grounds are lovely, especially the pool, and all the staff were extremely attentive. Great dry martinis and local cuisine, and a big thank... More

Tamarind Hill is a beautiful bouquet hotel located near the city of Gall. This magnificent building was build more the 200 years ago by a Sri Lankan nobleman, and later it was the house of an English admiral. That explains why it is so very beautiful, great entrance, large rooms and nice garden. As said the rooms are large with... More
