Hotel Hillside
Ranked #97 of 167 Galle B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 27, 2014

I have visited Hotel Hillside a number of times since it opened in 2005. I keep returning because I love its location on top of a small hill just ten minutes away from the historic Galle Fort right on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. I love the spacious, airy, open lay-out of the Hotel which enables me to be out of doors all the time, whether for meals or just relaxing by the pool, watching the many different birds going about their business. The care and hospitality of the owner, Chaminda, and his staff are second to none. They go out of their way to make everyone's stay memorable. Despite its exotic location the price is very affordable starting at $40 Bed and Breakfast for a double room. The Hotel is particularly sought after by local honeymooners.

Room Tip: Rooms in the block facing inland have uninterrupted long distance views into the interior

Chaminda was a wonderful host to 26 of us from the Tall ship Lord Nelson in May 2013. He organised transport, access to ATMs, beers by the pool, even chips and tomato sauce and a magnificent Sri Lankan meal over 2 nights during our stay in Galle. Disabilities of blindness and wheelchair use he took in his stride and I am very grateful for all his help. It was truely a wonderful way of experiencing Sri Lanka and well worth a visit, if ever in Galle for holiday or cricket. I will be back.

On behalf of the crew of the Tall Ship Lord Nelson I want to thank Chaminda, proprietor of Hotel Hillside, for the most amazing two days he gave to our party - two of us blind and one in a wheelchair- when The Lord Nelson docked in Galle Harbour. We are on our way round the world on our this Tall Ship, custom built to accommodate every level of disability. What a wonderful introduction to the kindness and friendliness of the east.
