Pros: Great location, having breakfast while looking over the sea was really nice. Lovely couple running this guesthouse, fascinating to hear about the history of Islam in Sri Lanka. Clean facilities. Cons: Pricier than other places I stayed in and not any better. I found Millennium Rest Hostel which is just around the corner, just as clean, almost half the... More

Excellent location overlooking the sea & ramparts in Galle. To have your breakfast watching the sea is great. Room adequate, seemed rather tired & cluttered in places. Shower needs improving. Not sure it was great value for money

We picked this place for its location and views -- inside Galle Fort with western views over the fort walls across the Indian ocean. We were certainly not disappointed with this aspect, and it was nice to be able to sit out on the little balcony next to our room and enjoy the ocean breeze. Having said that, I felt... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Rampart View. We had a great sea view from our room and enjoyed a sunset walk along the nearby ramparts. The room was clean with everything we needed and breakfast was also very good. The owners were very helpful and friendly, providing an early breakfast to accommodate our departure time.

My wife and I have just recently stayed at the Rampart View Guest House in Galle Fort. The rooms are on the second floor and are simple but very clean. From the balcony there is a great view over the ramparts to the sea. Breakfast is served on the balcony {eEnglish or Sri Lankan} which was great and the English... More

We traveled Sri Lanka for 2 and half weeks and this was one of our favorites. The weather was horrible as it was off season so we needed somewhere with A/C. We chose this one but were a little put off by the photos. Well trust me the place is great and the photos don't do it justice. We had... More

My wife and I stayed at Rampart View GH for two nights in Jan 2015. We had booked over email and the owner Mr. Rauf had confirmed our reservation. We were looking for a quiet and safe place and selected the GH based on Trip Advisor Reviews and hence did not shop around for other deals. Our price was Sri... More

The family room we had was not so nice : No window; too small. Bathroom very basic. There is a small room with a very tiny staircase for a child, but it is very very small, so not enough to be called a family room. On the positive side : the owners (muslim family) are very nice. The breakfast is... More

Cannot fault this place at all. Beautiful location with my room looking out at the fort walls and sea! Stunning! Rooms were very spacious and clean and staff were so so friendly! Roof terrace was absolutely amazing - panoramic views of the fort area. Would recommend this to everyone!

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
