This is an old dutch residence converted into a hotel. So don't expect luxury. Only two of the rooms are air-conditioned. The ones booked by us weren't.....but the management kindly allowed us to occupy the other a/c rooms until their confirmed bookings arrived. The cook is very good. He conjured up two great meals for us. Just told him to...

Templeberg is a gem in the jungle just outside of Galle. Perfect location to relax but just a short tuk tuk ride away from beaches, town, bars & restaurants. Rooms are incredibly spacious with that home from home feeling and the staff attend to your every need - nothing is too much trouble. Experience the evening meal with other guests...

Villa Templeberg is absolute bliss! Combined with friendly staff, divine decor and the most incredible pool in the whole of Sri Lanka (check it out for yourself), I would recommend Villa Templeberg to any couple or family.

This place was incredible and I'd happily go back anytime. The staff were polite and always happy to help, the view was lovely and don't get me started on how good that pool is! If you're looking to get away to a place that is away from the hustle and bustle of the city, this is the one I'd be...

We rented the entire property for 4 nights with a group of friends and loved our stay. The villa is beautiful with great rooms, beautiful common areas and a pool to die for. The staff were wonderful, great Sri Lankan food- the potato curry with egg hoppers for breakfast won't disappoint and a welcome break from the bustle of town....

I had the absolute pleasure of staying in Templeberg Villa in June. Located just a short tuk tuk ride out of central Galle, the entry to the estate is marked by a driveway winding its way up an informal hillside garden to a clearing that reveals your first welcoming view of charming Templeberg Villa. During my trip, I visited and...
