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

The Lady Hill Hotel is set on a hill overlooking Galle. It is a few paces from the Governor's Residence and a pleasant temple. This was/is clearly the place to live, with monkeys in the surrounding trees. As other reviewers have pointed out the hotel overlooks, and is a little way from, the fort and the beach. It is ideal...

Lady Hill, was a pleasant and welcome surprise after a rather warm, tiring day of travel from Colombo ( with many stops en route). The old building, tastefully restored and redone, and the new addition which harmonizes beautifully with it, was much appreciated. The Staff were helpful, the ambience very very peaceful and pleasant, and our room, though small, had... More

If I remember right, we have stayed in this hotel annually for the past 15 years. Initially the rooms were not of that quality but we liked the quiet nature of the place and the friendly service. Over the years, the management has taken pains to modernize the rooms and now they are of a reasonably high standard. The service... 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
