The property is cozy and has a homely feel. The service is excellent and the staff are always there to assist. It is quiet, peaceful and serene. Room and bathroom is clean and comfortable. A good place to really relax. You need to stay at the hotel to fully understand the experience.

Excellent service and location. Quiet and quaint boutique style hotel. Friendly and very attentive staff. We stayed two nights here and throughly enjoyed the stay. We booked it through Booking.com . Although we were aware of taxes up to 29% , we were dismayed to see various other taxes. So expect quite a hike in the final bill! Even for...

Look no further for a stay in a cozy manor with colonial heritage. The place was built approx 250 years ago and was kept beautifully. Excellent service and great culinary options. An address to remember, we will certainly be back on our next visit to Sri Lanka.

This hotel was built out of an old manor house, straight out of colonial times, with modern accessories. Set just outside of Galle, it will give you an old-world feeling. The property is only 12 rooms, allowing for the staff to take care of your individual needs. The rooms are different in nature and layout, but we were given one...

A delightful boutique hotel with service second to none. Away from the bustle of Galle but within easy reach to visit the Fort. Spa treatments recommended with Damayanthi. The ladies in the office provide advice and suggestions on the day's activities.

Came here for a 2 nights and it was absolutely superb. Tucked away about 5 minutes from Galle Fort it is so peaceful and the staff are an absolute pleasure. We didn't get to sample the spa facilities, but the pool was lovely.

We were here for 3 nights 19-22 Feb 2017, as part of our holiday tour of Sri Lanka. Of the 8 hotels we stayed in (range: 5* to 3+* boutique), Tamarind Hill turned out to be our favourite. The staff were both friendly and efficient. The location was fantastic - a quiet, peaceful haven, but a only short tuktuk drive...

Old colonial house turned into a 12 room boutique hotel. Top service,big rooms with bathroom and a private outside patio. Large pool. Breakfast is served at the table and has all choices you can imagine. The hotel is a bit outside the busy city so it is very quiet and relaxing. It is about 10 minutes to reach the fort...
