Spent two nights here and really enjoyed it. Fantastic location. It's not a hotel and expectations should reflect that. Rooms are comfortable. Good WiFi. Nice and clean rooms and bathrooms. Location is amazing, sunset from roof top a must.

It's in the Galle fort in SL and I like the location and the service. Rooms are old but comfortable. Can have the feeling of old Sri Lanka. Excellent place and lot of things to see around that area. Friendly staff and good food. View is nice from the restaurant. Will come back once again and want to stay more... More

Ideal for our family of three for two nights. Clean and comfortable. Amazing Sri Lankan breakfast of rice hoppers and egg curry, with fresh fruit. The fluffiness towels we have had in Sri Lanka too. Highly recommended.

After eventually finding the entrance the welcoming owners showed us to one of the rooms which had fantastic views of the sea. They then showed us the room-top garden which is a brilliant place to watch the sunset and again has brilliant views. The air-con sadly was not working properly so it turned out to be a very warm night... More

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
