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.

We ended our trip of Sri Lanka here, saving the best to last!

We visited Tamarind Hill over New Years. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough. The grounds and accomodation are beautiful and well kept. The food is also of the highest standard. The thing that really sets Tamarind Hill apart though is the staff who are very caring and attentive. They went to considerable effort to put on an extravagant New...
