Stayed here for just one night. We were met by a lovely gentleman who spoke perfect English. He was very knowledgeable and helped out with any info needed. The rooms although not big gave the appearance of spaciousness as decorated in white. Lovely balcony overlooking a huge area as this hotel at the highest point of Galle. The swimming pool...

The restaurant is located on the top of the hotel which itself is set at the highest point in the city. This affords wonderful views across the city. The servers in the restaurant are friendly but very slow. There was 9 of us for lunch and thus took around 2 hours. The food is average by comparison to other sites...

We had sundowners and dinner at the roof top restaurant and it was excellent. The view over Galle is the best and the service we received was excellent. One request, add a cocktail menu and we will be back ever week !

This hotel was our second on a recent tour of Sri Lanka. We got to the hotel ans were shown to our room (on the 3rd floor with no elevator), and we were very disappointed to say the least! The room was very dirty, with dust everywhere, there were stains on every surface in the room : the floor, the...

The staff where friendly and very helpful. After a few hotels serving massive buffet breakfasts we found the modest breaky at Lady Hill a...

Had a two week holiday in Sri Lanka starting from 17/10/2016. Our first stop after heading south from the Airport was a 2 day stay at the Lady hill. Quite a good area to start your holidays. The Hotel itself is small, pleasant, clean and based in a central area with easy access to the town centre. Checking in went...

Great views of Galle from the higher floors and rooftop restaurant in this hotel. Rooms are small but have a contemporary style and are well appointed. A word of warning - don't make the mistake of walking up the wooden staircase. Although it isn't shown as such, this is a private area and you may set the dogs off! The...

Lady Hill is said to be on the highest land in Galle. Indeed most, if not all rooms would have excellent views. The best view is from the rooftop restaurant where 360 degrees views are had. Our room was quite small, but we were pleased at the efficient use of the space. A balcony affords more space if needed. The...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
