Beautiful room and building.

The four poster bed itself was fabulous however the mattress was hard. They really must work on their breakfast service. The first morning no one waited on us for quite a while, we did not get a menu to see options, no salt/ pepper on the table and we had to ask 5 different staff to get us coffee and waited 35 minutes before someone brought it. It would seem they are unaware of table assignments for waiters as it seemed every staff member served us. Very poor.
absolutely beautiful colonial house-style Boutique hotel. Room was spacious, quiet tastefully decorated. Pool was really lovely and serene with monkeys in the trees above.

just some real tiny details which do not interfere with the positive overall experience overrules them.
Everything. We had a great stay at Tamarind Hill and enjoyed every minute!

The hotel requires a short tuk tuk ride to the Fort. Use outside Tuk Tuks cheaper than the hotel one for tours etc and trips to town.
The room (especially the bathroom) was amazing. I would highly recommend this hotel. The staff are very well trained, I could not fault the place.

No nice beach nearby
So quiet and peaceful and a great chef

The old dutch villa has been beautifully converted in keeping with its original style and extended in a manner so that one cannot see what was original and what is new. The rooms are simply decorated and furnished with period furniture and are all spacious and comfortable. The bathrooms are excellent and one can take a shower with doors wide open out to the private courtyard. A pair of tame rabbits crop the lawn in the central courtyard and peacocks strut about careless of the guests enjoying their breakfast. A wonderfully peaceful hotel with friendly staff. I highly recommend it.

To far out of town . Coming home after sunset is scary ,since there is no light on the road toward the hotel The pool looked a bit uninviting .
The house is charming ,beautiful designed and the staff delightful

Lunch was of pretty low quality and was insanely over priced.
Lovely building and super sweet staff. Located a bit outside of Galle but still reachable by tuk-tuk. Rooms are very spacious and the bath room was amazing. We spotted both monkeys and peacocks while having the greatest of breakfasts. I'll recommend it for anyone staying the night in Galle.

The staff, the welcome, the style of the decor, the food, everything was great and I didn't want to leave. If you are looking for a place to relax and escape the bustle of Galle and enjoy the old colonial charm then this place is perfect!

TAMARIND HILL doesn't provide driver rooms.
Tamarind hill provides a very comfortable and homey feeling to it. Makes you feel relaxed even when you don't want to go out visiting places. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. You will want to wake up in the morning just to see the peacocks and monkeys roaming around and eating.

badly lit driveway from the main road into the hotel so you wouldnt always choose to walk out/ back at night if you were alone or ladies. we were charged 900 rupees for 1 large lion lager, even in the more expensive hotels a large lion lager is is in the 400-500 rupees range. the bar man might have got it wrong but never the less we had to pay it.
Huge room, Huge bed, huge bathroom, comfortable, quiet location.

It is not right on the waterfront (but we knew that going in); no gym (but we also knew that going in)
The staff, the rooms, the decor of the room, the breakfast, pretty much everything
November 19, 2014
the hot water didn't work all the time and a cold shower in the early morning, although no doubt very stimulating is not my idea of a pleasant way to wake up. this happened two days during my 4 days stay. Also for a "sophisticated" hotel like this the kitchen is a disappointment. the menu never changes and is actually not more than a snack menu. missed opportunity by the owners, as a good restaurant would do well in this romantic environment. but as I said, don't let this stop you as there are plenty of restaurants in galle.
the Dutch colonial architecture is beautiful and the open court yard building creates a unique atmosphere. rooms are large, airy and clean. staff although a little unexperienced at times are very helpful. the place is very well maintained and if you appreciate a (very) peaceful and quite environment this is definitely the place to stay and see Galle and its surroundings. TIP.go for dinner in the Lighthouse hotel (50 m ). Although the hotel itself is heavily overpriced at 360 USD, the dinner is great value for money at 2300 LKR.

The worn-out towels are needed to be changed to a better quality one.
The well-maintained and restored colonial building is stunning! The staff are so friendly and well-mannered. We really enjoyed our stay!
