Sunset and sunrise from your balcony! Add to that a commanding view of the old Dutch Fort ramparts on the sea. There is nothing more you would need to look for in Galle Fort. And please do not miss the breakfast! It's fabulous! And do prefer the Sri Lankan breakfast! The owner of the place makes the breakfast for you... More

Rampart view is very good place to stay. Its in very good place right next to rampart and south coast. Although the mosquito net was quite bad and we got few mosquito bites. The running couple is very nice and helpful. We had a very good stay here.

Really cool location inside the fort with great view of the sea and the fort. Tried the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast which was really yummie (it was actually the only place we've been too that served real traditional breakfast), and we had it outside so we could enjoy the wonderful view.

Great old hotel with run of the mill food and a dated atmosphere. Take a look if you want to see what colonial resthouses used to look like! Quite rundown but charmingly so! It feels like it is as old as the fort itself!

This place had great food but the service was extremely slow. We had to ask for menu's drink and the bill multiple times. Given they were busy but at the same time workers would pass us by and say nothing. If you have time a great place to eat with a great view of the Indian Ocean.

We spent 3 wonderful nights and enjoyed our stay. The hosts were kind, charming and were able to accommodate the mobility issues of my mum by providing a room on the ground floor and also serving meals in their dining room. The location was perfect - so close to the ramparts and the ocean. In the mornings we watched the... More

Really nice place with perfect location inside the fort looking over the ocean from the terrace. Lovely lady that owns the place who's very helpful and kind. Good value for the money. Warmly recommended!

The Rampart View Guest House is located right next to the fort wall and you can sit and watch the sunset from the balcony - but never the less it is far more cozy and beautiful to walk on the wall and enjoy the local life there. The house has great potential, but the owners do not seem to have... More

It is shocking to know the reveiw about this guest who has given 3 stars and also who has stayed for the 2nd day as well. This perticular room has a view of the sunset and when offering the guest the rest of the rooms we have, the choice is mostly for this. If it is a noisy air-condition and... More
