I had a 2 night stay here at this hotel. It was dirty, and the bathroom smelt terrible. The shower was the worst I have ever experienced in my travels around Asia. The staff were rude, unprofessional and have no customer service or care for their guests at all. One of the staff members accused me of stealing his mobile... More

We stayed here for 3 nights, which were maybe the least fun nights of our 1 month trip to Sri Lanka. First of all, to start off positive: it really is a great location. But in our first room, the smell coming from the toilet was terrible (already before me using it..), and we awoke at night several times just... More

Best attribute was the hotel is right in the middle of The Fort shopping area – so convenient. My room was adequate and quite spacious and the aircon kept the room wonderfully cool – the bathroom does need upgrading though – having a shower meant the whole bathroom got soaking wet. The downstairs rooms are very noisy as next to... More

My room in this guest house was small and not at all attractive. There was only one window which looked out on the corridor. It was clean and everything worked, but I was happy that it was only a one night stay. I had dinner which was very average and resulted in a slightly upset stomach - my only one... More

This is an historic guest house in middle of the touristy part of Galle Fort. It has a pretty verandah to watch the world go by. The service provided by the owner and the manager was warm, friendly and helpful. WiFi available in lounge/restaurant/verandah. In keeping with an older property, the room and en-suite bathroom were small but clean and... More

A cute verandah overlooking a Galle forte lane way. It's clean and tidy and the host is incredibly helpful except when we arrived and he didn't warn me about the local scams which I almost got caught in right royally. Still he is helpful attentive and the service is otherwise faultless. Travel tips for local buses were very helpful.The rooms... More

Friendliness of the staff overwhelmed the shortcomings of the restaurant and rooms. Specifically, the rooms were small with barely enough room for a pair of twin beds and a couple of chairs. Then again, it's a guest house with a handful of rooms, not a hotel... The restaurant was ok, average food and uncomfortable chairs. There's a small sitting area... More

I didn't stay here, just had dinner. We picked this place at random while walking because we were hungry and dehydrated. Kind of wish I'd researched the area a little better beforehand. My experience at the restaurant was so average that I almost didn't bother posting a review. The fish was too boney. Felt like the food was overpriced for... More

Negatives - The downstairs rooms are very noisy as next to the kitchen. The mosquito nets do not cover the beds adquately. Beds are short if you're a tall person. Overcharged a little for room. Positives - Helpful management, and the place is clean.
