The restaurant is the highest point in Galle and has beautiful views of the city. Everything - from the lobby, pathway through a small pond to the front desk, pool and rooms - is so stylishly designed. The rooms make good use of limited space. There are lucite blocks of indirect lighting, blockout shades for the glass balcony doors, mirrored... More

A beautiful little hotel up the hill, with a view on the city and seefront. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Swimming pool is clean and very nice for a quick dip after a long day on the road, but probably a bit small if you intend to spend the day at it. Good food and efficient service. I only found...

A really beautiful and lovely hotel in a quiet area of Galle. The staff is close to his residents and want to satisfy them. The restaurant on the 4th floor is a beautiful place with a 360degree view. The food is delicious. The rooms are modern and really confortable with the air conditioning system and the free wifi. Don't hesitate... More

The only and the most disappointing thing was that while we were having dinner the staff came in with a welcoming chocolates and flowers. Sadly not only they have left those, but also decided to take smth of ours- 2 credit cards from my passport in... More

We stayed at lady hill for a week and wish we had booked to stay longer. The staff are very friendly and polite and we were very happy to have such great service by them. The rooms were fantastic with great balcony views. We recommend lady hill for any kind of stay in galle. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly.

This hotel is so well designed and professionally run. Staff are a joy, attentive to your every need. The rooms and bathrooms are on the small side but the spacial design makes the most of the size. Everything so well thought out. You forget there is not much space. Rooftop bar and restaurant is a must see experience. Has to... More

My wife and I stayed at this small hotel during a tour of Sri Lanka earlier this month. Great location and views and a very attentive staff. Great pool where you can relax. We found it not that too far from the town city and some beaches near the Galle Fort. It was only a short tuk tuk ride back... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled atop the highest point of the ancient port city of Galle sits the Lady Hill Hotel, where you will be overwhelmed by the breathtaking and panoramic “Bird’s Eye View” of the lush green countryside stretching from the tea covered slopes of the Southern foothills all the way down to merge with the brilliant blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Located in close proximity to the city’s pulsating heart and to some of the best beaches in the Island, yet secluded enough to offer a measure of tranquility and serenity, that the discerning traveler eagerly looks forward to after a weary bout of sightseeing and exploration. Thereby, adhering to the watchwords “Lose yourself in the Experience and not in the Crowd”.Entering the portals of the Lady Hill, one is treated to an architectural edifice, echoing the legacy of the ancient Colonial Dutch period, from the imposing entrance archway, down to the natural cobblestone floor. However, as you progress through the lobby, where you will be greeted with the traditional Sri Lankan welcome of “AYUBOWAN”, which translates as “May You Have Long Life”, you notice a subtle but appreciative change in the conceptual idea.You will be ushered to your room via a rustic granite stone stairway, flanked by a strip of fresh water fish ponds and upon entering your room, will be amazed to find that you have been transported from the past into the future within the space of a few short ticks of the clock. The rooms are furnished with ultra modern futuristic style décor and posses state of the art facilities and amenities which are all that you, as an honored guest, could possibly hope for. ... more   less
