A Sri Lankan gem just outside the city
1. Staff was so friendly and helpful. 2. Food. 3. Pool.
Our stay at the Tamarind Hill was great. The property is absolutely beautiful and very intimate with only about ten rooms. Though the hotel is not very close to the center of "town," we had a driver, which made transportation ok, and I'm sure the hotel would arrange for that if you ask. The pool was great; we went in the afternoon and there was nobody there! We had a nice large pool to swim laps in! The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. They always asked about our day and we had a chance to converse with a couple of them about our trip and Sri Lanka. Shantha helped us at all of our meals, and he was especially helpful and kind. He is a very hard worker! The food was delicious and well-priced. We had the rice and curry every night, and you get so much delicious food without breaking the bank like you can at some other hotels of this caliber. Hotel serves all meals and staff is always available for anything you need. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends. There is one suggestions: with the dengue fever problem in Sri Lanka, they should consider enclosing the shower area completely from the outside. We could close the windows but there were small openings above the windows where mosquitos could come in. It would be wise to also have a mosquito net for the extra single bed. Thank you for a great stay!

SLH Tamarind Hill with big service.
The place is just lovely to top that off the staff was trying very hard to please without expecting a tip or anything! Also loved the touch of animals roaming around the property!
Perfect! The hotel, staff and service was just perfect. If I had to complain about anything was to screen the bathroom to avoid Mosquitos coming in. And too much flies but the. These are something that I might be difficult to control.

Beautiful old converted mansion
Great room, huge bathroom, beautiful property
We really enjoyed our stat at Tamarind Hill. In fact, it spoiled us for the accommodation that came afterwards. They are clearly trying very hard to please their clients and the staff is very friendly and attentive. There are a few upgrades that could be made with the food, but overall it was very nice.
