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

Totally met our expectations. Room had a great view for 'people watching' and lovely sea breeze. Location was a great base for day trips. Nice to walk back through the Fort each day. Mattress comfortable, hot water, a/c and fan working, good wifi. Hosts were extremely helpful and not intrusive. Communication prior to arrival was good. Lovely meal prepared for... More

Galle is the first station of our Sri Lanka honeymoon trip and Rampart View really gave us an amazing experience! We stayed at the room facing directly to Indian Ocean for three nights. This is the best location in the whole fort.The room is cozy and comfortable just like a home. You got everything you need. We feel very lucky... More

I kind of hate writing this review as I know it to be the best place to stay in the Fort. And I hope it doesn't change with the popularity a great review can bring, but YES, this place is the best place in the fort. One of the biggest reasons for returning to Galle was, we felt cheated because... More

Dropped in for lunch on a two day tour and having walked around the ramparts overlooking the cricket ground and the sea. Lunch was good although rather oddly and without explanation they did bring the soup as I was in the middle of my main course! Great view from the balcony- situated restaurant though. Some lovely late Victorian and turn... More

My wife and I arrived at Galle Fort from Mirissa via tuk2 and didn't make any reservations. We were greeted by Mrs Rauf and we were lucky enough that there was a room available. The views were amazing especially during sunrise and sunset. Special mention goes to Mr & Mrs Rauf for feeding us a delicious lunch before we left... More

This b&b was in a perfect location, right on the fort wall. Lovely view from the balcony and roof garden. Rooms clean and tidy . Food very good. Total privacy as the staff did not bother us at all except for breakfast service. Great value for money , good air conditioning. Would recommend. Xxx

A great place if liquor is not your only motivation :) Right at the beach, with the best view from the room, along with amazing hosts. After a long travel - flight to colombo, direct train to galle, and then walk to the hotel - it was the perfect place to sip a cup of coffee and enjoy the view... More
