Such a lovely experience. The staff are so accommodating and the rooms really are spectacular. All staff were great especially Samith who really took time to look after us. There's a lovely pool slightly away from the main building so it's very peaceful to relax in the afternoon. A great experience.

I strongly recommend Tamarind Hill in Galle for several reasons: wonderful example of colonial architecture, great location on a small hill facing the sea, calm atmosphere, sophisticated service, spacious rooms and suites,fine Dutch furniture, exquisite cuisine. The General Manager, Mr.Nishantha Gamage, will make you feel at home!

We had a lovely two night stay at Tamarind Hill. It is a little outside of the fort, about 5 minutes by tuk tuk but this is no problem and it provides a peaceful and beautiful refuge away from the busy fort area. The hotel is boutique and luxurious, with only ten rooms which face onto a central grassy area.... More

There are no words to describe it... The hotel is inside a old colonial house, perfectly renewed and really luxurious. The staff is very nice and helpful, and makes you feel like a king and queen. The room is very spacious and luxurious, but still it seems like you are a couple of centuries ago. Wonderful garden for breakfast (... More

We arrived in Galle, intending only to stay one night. We were lucky and got two rooms at the Tamarind Hill, and stayed as long as we could! Just fabulous. It's just outside the town, so very quiet and peaceful. The rooms are gorgeous, lovely old furniture, huge beds and lots of hot water in the huge bathrooms. Very clean... More

Stayed 2 nights during our short vacation and really enjoyed the quiet stay at this affordable hotel. The staff were very friendly and always there to assist when needed. I think the culinary was second to non and no doubt real value for money.
