While I only dropped into the hotel for lunch, I did get a chance to check the rooms out and walk around. The main building of the hotel is a 200+ year old villa that has been converted, the additional buildings added to the compound are so true to detail that I really could not tell it was a newer...

This place is nice, old clonial building. Clean. The food isn't great, over cooked fresh tuna was very disappointing! Overpriced food and wine. The room was very spacious and clean but smelled musty. Staff very friendly and helpful!!

We spent two days here on our way to Kataragama. The setting of this boutique hotel is exquisite. Most relaxing hotel I have ever stayed in, absolutely not a cookie cutter building block but a well maintained retreat. Toiletries provided here were spa quality and plush linens. Food served was very good too. The staff was most helpful, friendly and... More

After searching for literally months I came across this beautiful venue for my wedding. I cannot really describe how wonderful the day was and that was in no small part due to the hotel managers Ajith and Nishantha. Despite a minor hiccup with the marquee the hotel staff worked through the night to organise an amazing day for myself and... More

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
