We stayed at Tamarind Hill for 3 nights. It was wonderful. We had stayed previously in the centre of Galle - this is on the edge - it feels like you are in the country - and yet in less than 5 mins by tuk tuk you are in Galle and in 10/12 mins at the beach.
The hotel is a beautiful old colonial building that has been restored - the rooms are around a Courtyard garden with a pond and grass in the middle. The rooms are comfortable and offer everything you would want. The bathrooms are particularly spacious and well designed.
There is a wonderful swimming pool and nice comfortable seating area near it with cane settees and chairs.
There is a very homely lounge area with books to read where we had a cocktail each evening before and after dinner. There is even a small bar should you wish you use one.
The restaurant is wonderful - the food was spectacular the chef is a real star - he asks what you want and conjures up the most wonderful individually cooked food - we had booked for two nights but extended as it was so wonderful. Breakfast was wonderful too.
The staff are friendly, helpful and go the extra mile for you - they helped to make it a very special stay as did the Manager who also went out of his way to speak to the guests and make sure everything is ok. I would high recommend this hotel - it is a hidden gem.
