We had booked an a/c room for 2 days. The first night, there was no electricity and therefore no a/c or fan as one of the generators quit and therefore parts of the fort was in darkness. The other rooms were on a different generator and therefore they had electricity. The owner Naman did not even acknowledge the fact till... More

I decided to try the Seagreen based on all the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor, so I guess my expectations were high. We arrived by car, and could not follow the directions we were given to the hotel. It turned out the road to the hotel was closed, and we would never have found it on our own, had someone not... More

We stayed with our 9 month old daughter for one Month with Naman and his Family. TRUE SRI LANKAN HOSPITALITY! There is simply not more to say, my Wife is Sri Lankan, it was as if we stayed with her Family, thank you so much, we had a fantastic time!

This place is heaven. Facing the fort you can choose to: relax in the covered terrace on the first floor, go to the top roof to sunbathe or relax in total comfort of your spacious room…otherwise you can go for a walk and have a look a the cozy Galle Fort. The beds are comfortable, the room is tastefully decorated,... More

Lovely guesthouse located inside Galle Fort. The owners very kindly rang us to advise us only pay 100Rupees from the train station to the guesthouse so we wouldn't get ripped off - nice touch! Had a beautiful standard room for 3 people, ensuite with a double & a foldout bed in the room, for $50 a night. Pity breakfast wasn't... More

The Seagreen Guesthouse is a stunning oasis of calm run by a Singhalese and German couple at the Northern tip of the Galle Fort. It is so much more than an impeccable clean and cozy place: it is also your info and safety hub. Being there feels like visiting old friends. When you are hanging out on the roof top... More

I spent a few nights at this guesthouse and loved every moment of my stay. The rooms are immaculately kept, as are the balcony areas. The owners are just so awesome and friendly. A real pleasure to stay and made most welcome. I will not hesitate to visit this guesthouse again, for buisness and for a holiday. I would highly... More

Seagreen was a wonderful place for us while we were in Galle. The rooms are clean, the beds comfy, and the owners are helpful and kind. The location is right at the fort wall and the upstairs balcony is perfect for people watching. Overall we loved this place and the rates are reasonable. Especially after some of the other places...

We were so happy we chose to stay in this guesthouse. We were lucky enough to get the top floor room with the roof terrace all to ourselves. The room was immaculate, beds were incredibly comfortable with really nice sheets and towels. We had hot water anytime of the day also. The owners, a Sri-lankan/German couple were amazing. They were... More

This is a great find in the Fort. Clean, spacious and simply furnished rooms with an ample sized bathroom attached. Has lovely outside seating areas and decks with views to the Fort and the sea - unbeatable. Owners are really friendly (and so's the dog) and there's a cafe next door for breakfast and snacks. Would not hesitate to stay... More
