We stayed in that "hotel" for one night to see Galle in July. It's may be a hotel for asian people but it's just a guest house for european standards!
It's on the hill, far from the fort, it has 4 floors and no lift, the rooms are renewed (quite tasteless) but the bathroom has exactly 2 sq meters, the sheets are patched, no more white but grey and they smell to mildew (as well as the towels), there's no buffet for breakfast (just continental breakfast) and at 11 in the morning the swimming pool is not yet cleaned (I wonder if they clean it sometimes?).
Avoid absolutely if you want a real hotel and choose a hotel in the fort.
- 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
