We booked ourselves into the Tamarind as a treat after a week's hectic tour of Sri Lanka. Without a doubt it's one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. It's an old colonial hose with just 12 rooms. Everything from the furniture to the original brass locks on the doors are reminder of times gone by. The staff are...

Swimming pool was great and...

Monkeys, wild peacocks, lizards and rabbits are all over the property which is a nice added bonus if you have kids or an easily amused spouse. It's not inside Galle...

The hotel itself is a couple of Km outside Galle and is setback from the coastal road along a secondary road. The hotel itself is set on a hill and benefits from gentle breezes coming through. The hotel and grounds are...

The old colonial building with its beautiful rustic decor made it even more grandeur and special. The checking in was very efficient and smooth and the staff is extremely courteous and friendly. The hotel and restaurant staff is extremely well trained, efficient,...
