Old Dutch merchant house. Excellent location within Galle Fort. Can walk to the fortification wall--Indian Ocean within 5 minutes. Shops, restaurants, and historical sights are just around the corner within a 10-block radius. Stayed in room on second floor--huge. Bathroom 21 feet long with two sinks. There are only four rooms. The rooms are somewhat dark. Only breakfast. The staff... More

Staying in the Galle Heritage Villa for two nights as part of our 15 night trip around Sri Lanka. Let me start with the positives. The location of Galle Heritage Villa is excellent. Nestled in the heart of the fort. The staff were friendly and helpful. Also being a small property of four rooms it is intimate and personal. The... More

We stayed here for two nights in Galle and found it to be a great base to explore. The villa only has four rooms, and is very private. The public areas are attractive and the butler is very helpful. The rooms themselves are pretty average. The air con works ok, and there is a ceiling fan. The bed in our... More

Having visited other Jetwing properties before, we were well acquainted with the chain's high standards. We booked the entire villa over the phone for a 2 day 1 night stay. Unfortunately the reservations lady made a mistake and had booked it for November 23rd instead of December 23rd. She was able to fix her error quickly though. The location is... More

Very beautiful house inside the Fort. Four bedrooms overlooking an interior garden. Great bedrooms with great bathrooms. Very attentive but discrete service. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance.

This is a 4 room villa in a very quiet neighbourhood inside Galle Fort. The ramparts of the fort, all top restaurants and shops are but a minute away. The facade of the building is Dutch but that's about it. The rest is apparently modernly constructed. The upper floor room and bathroom we got were well appointed but a little... More

Not a big place with just 4 rooms. Feels like you are in a big house. The staff are very nice and helpful. Its a bed and breakfast place but the Sri Lankan breakfast is awesome. You need to tell the staff a day in advance of your choice. The wi fi doesnt work that well in the room and... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our honeymoon and were delighted. It was excellent value for money, and the room was huge. The four poster bed was the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in! The bathroom was large, clean and beautifully tiled. The shower pressure wasn't the best but it was hot and the toiletries were lovely. Excellent... More
