#18 of 80 hotels in Galle
Nestled atop the highest point of the ancient port city of Galle sits the Lady Hill Hotel, where you will be overwhelmed by the breathtaking and panoramic “Bird’s Eye View” of the lush green countryside stretching from the tea covered slopes of the Southern foothills all the way down to merge with the brilliant blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Located in close proximity to the city’s pulsating heart and to some of the best beaches in the Island, yet secluded enough to offer a measure of tranquility and serenity, that the discerning traveler eagerly looks forward to after a weary bout of sightseeing and exploration. Thereby, adhering to the watchwords “Lose yourself in the Experience and not in the Crowd”.Entering the portals of the Lady Hill, one is treated to an architectural edifice, echoing the legacy of the ancient Colonial Dutch period, from the imposing entrance archway, down to the natural cobblestone floor. However, as you progress through the lobby, where you will be greeted with the traditional Sri Lankan welcome of “AYUBOWAN”, which translates as “May You Have Long Life”, you notice a subtle but appreciative change in the conceptual idea.You will be ushered to your room via a rustic granite stone stairway, flanked by a strip of fresh water fish ponds and upon entering your room, will be amazed to find that you have been transported from the past into the future within the space of a few short ticks of the clock. The rooms are furnished with ultra modern futuristic style décor and posses state of the art facilities and amenities which are all that you, as an honored guest, could possibly hope for.

We stayed there for 2 days and it was extremely lovely. This charming hotel is perched on top of a hill and its rooftop restaurant boasts one of the best bird's eye views of Galle. On one end you'll see the Fort, Harbour, and sea, and on the other end, you can see the hills of Galle. The pool, however, is built towards the entrance so you can only see the hills and their bird sanctuary. And yes, they have a bird sanctuary. You can't go in, but there is a garden where you can sit and watch the little birdies. They also have tortoises in the pond leading up to the outdoor front desk. At the restaurant, they have a simple menu ranging from soups to mains to dessert. They also offer beer and wine, apart from it you can bring your own spirits. During our stay, they had a Sizzling Jumbo Prawn Platter with buttered rice and saladand Sizzling Chicken Platter. My favorite food experience was breakfast. You're given a selection of either Sri Lankan or English breakfast, and we chose English. They start you off with a freshly made passionfruit juice, coffee/tea, and then your choice of eggs coupled with sausages, bacon, and toast. For me, the best part of having my meals there was good food with a brilliant view. The rooms at Lady Hill are on the smaller end albeit very cozy and tastefully decorated. The lighting adds the perfect ambiance to the view you are greeted to from the balcony. The double room has amenities such as free wifi, a mini-bar, hot water, and a TV. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive to our needs. They are also very fluent in English. For a cozy stay in Galle, I'd definitely pick Lady Hill.

The panoramic views of all of Galle from this towering hilltop restaurant are the best in town. We've been lunching here, as a treat, for years but not since lockdown. It's open again now (Sept), smartened up a bit, sensible hygiene precautions, same staff, great new menu (most things sizzling on a hot dish brought to the table) and the same, amazing view over the town, harbour and ocean. Booze available, friendly service as usual and good prices. We really enjoyed the experience - it felt like old times! Thanks to all.
