After 30 years of staying in guest houses around world, we found this to be one of the best, in all respects. Just perfect for us. The attention to detail was spot on. The atmosphere created by the owners was perfect; no request was too much trouble.

Good guesthouse in the fort. Very friendly people who speak perfect english, german lady and a sri lankan guy, so they know what western people want combined with a lot of friendliness and good food. We had the budget room so it was basic and there is a school next to it, so they woke us up early. Breakfast was... More

Our room was beautifully clean and comfortable. The staff are attentive, knowledgable, and helpful. They also seem to enjoy their work, which I think says a lot about the place. The breakfast was delicious and the view from the rooftop was lovely. It's one of the best places we stayed in Sri Lanka.

My husband and I are long term travelling (6 months). To ease ourselves in we spent two nights at a good,but expensive hotel in Galle. We calculated that if we carried on at this level we would soon be looking for jobs as house boys, so the Seagreen was a significant move down on the budgeting front for us, and... More

We stopped here for three nights..guided to a large extent by the good review in Lonely Planet. Lonely Planet got it dead right. The guesthouse is the perfect place to be explore The Old Fort area. It has a great rooftop terrace from which to view the glorious sunset. The proprietor Naman and his lovely German wife are the perfect... More

This is our second visit and we will come again. Naman & Maike the owners and their staff are all lovely and can't do enough for you. They organised a happy, smiling and safe driver very late from Colombo airport for us. Knowing I was nervous about the driver (as I had had a very scary previous experience) they were... More

Imagine a squeaky clean room, white washed walls, decorative details and wonderful fragrances in the air... Well, that was how our room looked to us when we arrived:-) Breakfast is to be ordered one day in advance, but prepare yourself for something good. The pancake with mixed fruits was superb! We did not dine there, so can't comment. Definitely recommended.

Seagreen guesthouse was a clean and perfectly located guest house in Galle. The room was clean, included AC and warm water shower, and the view from the shared terrace was spectacular. Only critisism: they did not offer SriLankan breakfast (although it was on the menue) and refused to serve breakfast on the terrace (which would have been much better than... More

Friendly staff welcome you to this small and fabulously situated guesthouse. Our top floor apartment had views over the rampart to the ocean. The breakfast is terrific too. There is A/C too. The rates are reasonable. Most highly recommended.

This is really a very good family-run guest house with charming, efficient and warm staff. The smiling room-boys are the real backbone of this establishment. We had everything we needed including a delicious breakfast. The only little issue was the extremely weak internet connection but other than that it was a great stay indeed.
