The hotel staff are very hospitable, service excellent and are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The food is fantastic and great value....

Just a few kms short of Galle, we saw a sign board "Tamarind Hill" - the place was easy to miss since it was off the main road. Just popped in for a cup of tea but we stayed on for more than an hour since we were so overwhelmed by the charm of the place and the staff. A...

A luxury hotel that pays attention to the finer details. The white-glove treatment starts with the registration process all the way through escorting you to your wonderful room. The rooms are a throwback to an earlier era, as is the whole property, but equipped with the best you would expect in a luxury resort. Caring staff led by Nihal their...

Dear syncopation, Thank you very much for your review. We are more than happy to hear your stay with us was great! The hotel is a little away from the beach, as it is only 5 min away. Located away from the city. Very calm & quiet. If you love the colonial feel, this is the ideal place as this...

Fabulous place to stay, small luxury hotel with great sri lankian food. Close enough to the visit the fort and other sites around galle. We loved the little rabbits and peacocks wandering around.

This a delightful hotel. We were warmly welcomed and throughout the stay we were well looked after. Our room was large,very attractively furnished, with an excellent shower. It opened onto a veranda which overlooking an attractive grassed couryard. We thoroughly enjoyed both dinner and breakfast? The food was attractively presented and there was a good choice.

Tamarind Hill could be mentioned as one of the top highlights of our so special day. My husband and I choose this beautiful hotel as our honeymoon hotel and that was one of the best choices we made.

We ended our trip of Sri Lanka here, saving the best to last! A beautiful colonial building creating a very restful and charming hotel where the staff were attentive, helpful and friendly yet discreet when you wanted to be left alone. There's a wonderful swimming pool that I used every day, a peacock displaying every morning on the lawn at...

My wife and I had a private cooking class with the Nilantha Perera, Executive Sous Chef at Tamarind Hill in Galle. It was the best cooking class we have had.
