Lady Hill

Traveler (203)
Room & Suite (57)
Dining (14)


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.

It’s not in town and at top of a steep hill. We should have found something closer to the Fort. It’s a strange layout downstairs and our room was small. The bathroom was very small with a bit of a smell. Best was the rooftop restaurant and bar - the views were superb. They need

Last night on a long two week tour with Kuoni. Hotels had been first class but food was almost inedible here. Staff also often forget orders so food ended up cold. Roof top view is nice but rooms noisy and small. Good location for Galle town.

Dear Guest, The call to prayer and dogs barking is totally out of our control. However, our set menu contains a choice of 4 items and not 2. I am looking into the allegation that the food was not prepared well and will be taking remedial action immediately to correct this. I trust the next time you visit all the shortcomings will be rectified and you will experience a vast difference in service levels. Best Regards, Senaka De Silva Managing Director

Dear Guest, Firstly let me apologize for the delays in receiving your orders. What really happened was that the order was confused by the steward on duty who happens to be a Trainee and not versed enough in the protocol of placing orders to the Kitchen. This is not an excuse but the actual fact. However, if you are ever in Galle in the future, please e-mail us or call on 091 2244322 and arrange to stop by for a complimentary meal. Best Regards, Senaka De Silva Managing Director

Dear Guest, Whilst apologizing for any inconvenience caused, I must reiterate that your Travel Agent had an allocation of 12 rooms for this particular booking. However, they sent a reservation for 14 guest rooms in all. In this event, we had no option but to transfer the excess two rooms to an alternate property. As you can see our hands were tied by the limitation of the number of rooms we had available. Best Regards, Senaka De Silva Managing Director

It does not have lifts. However, most hotels in Galle town don't have lifts as they are designed with a colonial look. The stairs are wide and easy to climb. But still, may be difficult with a bad knee.

"select harbour view"
