Tamarind Hill, Galle
Small hotel (I think 12 rooms). It is a terrific room (ask just to see the Captain's Room). Really big and comfortable. Food is outstanding. Service is too good. Internet works well. Not a problem, but nothing is walking distance. You need a tuk-tuk to go anywhere. It is usually just a few dollars. They have some reliable drivers. For $10-$12 they take you to dinner, wait, and deliver you home. I think this is true for almost anywhere that you would want to stay in Galle.

Charming little place on the outskirts of Galle. To be clear, if you want to walk around colonial Fort and look at the cute buildings, you'll need to take a $4/ten min tuk tuk ride. Not a huge deal, just something to be aware of. Gorgeous building and they did a great job. I stayed in the Capitan's Suite, and had a bathroom the size of a Manhattan apartment. Decent food. Good Sri Lankan breakfast with hoppers, etc if you are into that. Not much going on in the immediate around the hotel, so expect to go into Galle Fort to eat/hangout/sight see or take a trip down the coast to some of the numerous beaches. Charming staff. Note: if you have children, they'll love seeing the rabbits, turtles, peacocks, mongeese (is that the plural?) and monkeys that run wild over the property, so that was a nice added bonus.

The room was spacious and quiet with a little courtyard but there were alot of mosquitos and the toiletries and towels were not replenished. Staff went above and beyond. Breakfast was great.

Very Good8.0
Lovely little hotel minutes from Galle Fort
We stayed four nights at the Tamarind Hill and the room, restaurant and gardens were fantastic. They have a lovely swimming pool in the garden but could do with getting rid of the cumbersome daybeds and replacing them with a few more sun longers plus parasols that can be moved more easily as there is very little shade while at the pool. Otherwise, the staff were lovely, the food excellent(breakfast and dinner - try the curry!), rooms nicely appointed and the hotel positioned just five minutes by tuk tuk from Galle Fort. Breakfast on the terrace (a la carte which was a lovely change from the usual buffets) with the local peacock displaying his feathers is a setting that would be hard to match anywhere!
