amazing place with heritage. elegant yet low-profile. and the service is good. Thanks to Rohan for his kindness and excellent service. We arrived late in the evening. Rohan and his team were waiting for us with welcome drinks and nice dinner. The swimming pool is nice though a bit too small.

Room Tip: 'larger room' is nicer

Thank you so much for taking time to post a lovely comment about Tamarind Hill on Trip Advisor. We are pleased to hear about your pleasant experience with us.

Our property is indeed a refurbished colonial residence and has a rich history attached to it. Renovations carried out haven’t completely changed the architectural design but has still kept the authentic feel intact.

We are glad that you found our Food and Service up to your expectations and do note that the stated compliments will be passed on to the designated staff mentioned in the review.

Thank you once again for the lovely comment and we look forward to seeing you at Tamarind Hill soon.

We had a lovely couple of nights here last November. It was very peaceful and quiet, the service was great and the rooms were fab. We loved the pool which looks out into a rainforest-like area complete with water monitors and monkeys. The hotel manager and staff would appear as if by magic, anticipating perfectly when they were needed. Staying here felt like we'd gone back in time as the building and decor is beautifully colonial. And the fort is only a short trip away by Tuk Tuk.

We arrived to a very welcome drink and cool towels, the service was great without being overbearing, It's only a short tuk tuk ride to town & the fort. Really nice swimming pool, we watched a troop of monkeys jump from tree to tree from the pool. The food is outstanding. The hotel supplied us with an adaptor as we had forgotten to bring one, and the rooms were very nice and airy (with air con).
Rayan, Chameera, Rohan and the pool attendant were really nice guys to chat to and help as was the young lady in the office helping with our change.
We stayed in the last week of April - it was just what we needed to chill out before going exploring.

Take care all, Nayan & Julie

Although slightly off the main road to Galle, this is actually an advantage for a peaceful stay as the main beach road can get very busy and the locals driving leaves a lot to be desired! The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are so comfortable and clean, set in a quadrangle attached to this dutch lodge. Leading from there is some steps down to an endless pool and then a small path to a river where we hired a canoe for a small trip further into the jungle.An absolute hidden gem and is highly recommended for a stay on this wonderful isle.

Room Tip: All rooms are elegantly presented.

We stayed last week in April 2013 for 6 nights and were immediately satisfied when we arrived that we had made the right choice which stayed with us until we left, we had the place more or less to ourselves as it was end of season which suited us down to the ground. Wonderful old colonial building which has been tastefully enlarged and although it has all the modern amenities has kept the furnishings in the colonial style. Setting is peaceful and relaxing with lovely grounds and pool. Room was large and comfortable although bathroom only had a fan which meant frequent temperature changes passing between rooms.Food was generally very good and if ordered before going to the restaurant was always ready when you arrived, Sri Lankan meal arranged for us on one night in the garden was easily the best meal in the whole holiday. The staff were all very friendly and capable with particular thanks to the manager Sudath and Rayan
who made us welcome and special thanks to Rohan who always went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. Galle is only 10 mins away by tuc-tuc for sight seeing and different meals. All in all we had a great time here and it was the icing on the cake after a previous week of touring and we can certainly recommend this hotel as a relaxing place.
