Spent three nights here without any dramas or problems. The staff were friendly and genuinely happy to see you and chat about your day. They couldn't resist an opportunity to upsell tours, taxi rides and the like, but it was never a hard sell. I had the room on the first floor, the one with the funny little seating area... More

This cute little guest house is great value for money. The rooms are small but very clean and the family that own it literally couldn't do more for you. The shower is powerful and hot and it's in a great location. Defiantly recommend :-)

Their gallery of photos here gives a clue as what to expect. So many pillows and cushions and extra blankets and teddy bears, but not enough attention paid to the hardware. But when all is said and done, it's an okay place to stay. The family owners are all very pleasant and helpful, and they cook up a tasty breakfast... More

This guest house is beautifully situated in atmospheric and elegant Galle fort, is clean, with a few spacious and comfortably furnished rooms, a little fridge to cool your bots of Lion lager, and a small terrace overlooking the street scene. The family who run the GH are easygoing, and could not be nicer, and the prices are very reasonable, especially... More

Ask for the room on the top and you'll have a little terrace and a small but cozy and bright room with four windows. From there you can enjoy sunrise and sunset and you're in the heart of the Fort. It's a cheap place compared to other accommodations in the Fort, don't miss it!

Galle was my last stop after a month touring sri lanka solo. I was a bit worried at the many comments regarding prices there but I am happy to say that I managed to conclude my trip with a good guest house for a good price. Staying in more expensive places in srì lanka is most of the time a... More

Booked a room here based on some favorable reviews and the cheap price, but left feeling distinctly unimpressed. Questionable cleanliness, cramped rooms, an uncomfortable bed, a poor shower and an air conditioner that didn't work made our stay there pretty miserable. On the plus side, the staff/owners were very nice, and the location is great - then again Galle Fort... More

We booked at Fort Inn, but on arrival were told it was full and we were led to the Secret Palace, also owned by the same people. We can't comment on the Fort Inn as we never went inside, so look at my review on Secret Palace, but it's worth leaving this review because there's a good chance you'll be... More

We stayed here after escaping pretty sharpish from Colombo! The owners are just lovely and very helpful. We stayed in the top room and had our own terrace that looked over the rooftops of Galle Fort, really pretty. The bed was really comfy, if a little large for the room, but after being in India with some questionable matresses, I... More
