  • 6.0.Good

    When we arrived, the top management has messed up our room. Instead of sea view room, we got another room. After spending more than 2 hours arguing with the management, the property Manager Malindu managed to get us our room. He was amazing. Making sure property is running smoothly with no hassle. And made sure guest were taken care of at any expense. Overall cleanliness and services were top notch! Hats off to Malindu and the in-house chef for making guests welcome, even though the top management is treating the guests like garbage!

    Staying in a 300 year old beautiful villa that once belonged to a spice trader. The courtyard swimming pool was lovely.

    Great little romantic get away

    This is a beautiful very small boutique hotel. Perfect for a romantic get away. Excellent service and great breakfast as well. AC super cold for hot humid days. No bar, and it was a little weird having to have them open and close the main door each time you came and went. They were prompt in doing so, but still a little weird. The fort area of Galle is small but unique. You could walk all the streets and do all the shops in a couple of hours.

    Delightful Thambili House!

    Had a wonderful stay at Thambili House. We stayed in The Ginger Room which was very spacious, spotlessly clean and had a nice balcony over looking the small pool. Ideal place to relax and cool off in after a morning exploring the Fort. Mr Lakmal was exceptionally accommodating and made our stay very comfortable. The house is a fine example of an old Spice Traders House. Our only slight disappointment was we couldn’t sit and see the sea from the house. I had mistakenly thought we could but this is just from the other room. However, the house is ideally located in the Fort and seconds away from all the restaurants and other amenities the Fort and surrounding area has to offer.

    Verborgener Schatz

    Das Haus hat 3 Zimmer und uns wurde zuerst das Zimmer im Dachgeschoss zugeteilt: sehr eng mit sehr vielen Mücken. Spater erhielten wir ein Zimmer im Obergeschoss: großartig eingerichtet mit Terrasse und einem fantastischen Blick auf den Ozean. Das Personal ist sehr gastfreundlich. Das Frühstück mit sehr viel Liebe gemacht.
