Stayed one night. The owner and his family made us very welcome and recommended good places to eat. basic rooms with wet room shower and few amenities but in fantastic location opposite the old hospital complex.

Neat and clean rooms, family very friendly and helpful. Even made us curry lunch free of charge which was amazing and wouldn't take any money for this. Love the location as right amongst all of the happenings of Galle forte and right near the beach :)

Also their little dog Blackie is as nice and friendly as the family!! The guesthouse is clean and has everything you need: space, comfortable bed, nice bathroom,... Sit and talk to the family and feel their warm personalitys! The location is just top! So the price is nice for that part of the city.

This guest house is awesome, located right in the heart of Galle Fort. The family who run the place are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to help out. The breakfast is delicious. We loved that there was a sitting room near our bedroom to enjoy the breeze and the views of the water. Would definitely recommend to... More

The owners are very friendly and helpful. Well located and close to the sea (about 50 meters). Wifi is not so good. There is no hot water, although the owner said there will be. All in all, good value for the money (3000 rupees) per night for a couple.

Spent one day and enjoeyd our Galle Fort stay. The whole interior was suprisingly quite cooler airier than expexted. Staff is friendly and serves big relatively rich breakfat. No problem with room or anything else. Close to the lighthouse which is wonderful on sunset. Whole fort area is magic.
