The situation of this hotel is superb: beautiful view from the room (with balcony). And a very agreable rooftop bar/restaurant. There is a nice small swimming pool and the staff is extremely friendly. Albeit that apart from the management language can be a problem.
The downside of this hotel is the quality of the rooms. Our room was very much in need of refurbishment. The beds have too thin matrasses. The cleanliness of the sheets was not convincing and the towels smelled musty and did not absorb water (like new ones do before washing, but these were not new).
The food was good and reasonably priced. Beware of the red wine: ours was way beyond drinkability.
So location, staf and food are fine. And the price would be right if the rooms were better kept.
- 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
