My partner and I spent two nights in Mango House. Location: set right in the centre of the old fort, you are esentially within the main attractions. Only a 15 minute tuk-tuk ride from unawanatuna for a larger selection of restaurants and bars one evening. Room: small but clean and cosy, very comfortable four poster bed with mosquito net. Small...

Mango house is an old restored cinnamon warehouse in the centre of Galle fort, and sadly we only stayed one night here. You enter via the garden, which is lovely; hammocks and good quality furniture, beautiful mango trees and flowers. Very calm and relaxing place to eat your breakfast which is excellent or sip a cup of various flavoured free... More

My daughter and I stayed 2 nights in this hotel in early March. The hotel was well situated within the fort. The property had been very tastefully restored. both our bedrooms were gorgeous, roomy and airy with a tiny balcony. Above all it smelt fresh. The lounge area was superb and one could have your breakfast here or on the... More

Beautiful guest house right in the middle of Galle Fort. After a hot journey there we were welcomed in their beautiful shady garden with a cool glass of mango juice. Very friendly and welcoming staff, clean rooms with comfortable beds and great showers. Very airy, bright and spacious public areas inside, where you can sit and leaf through their varied... More

Mango House is a charming little house situated in the middle of Galle Fort. The rooms are light and breezy. The garden is a perfect little taste of jungle in the middle of the city. The hosts are very knowledgeable of where to go and what to see, and they serve the best breakfast in Sri Lanka! Yes, they serve... More

We stayed at Mango House for just one night in March, and would have loved to stay for longer. As others have said, the property itself is gorgeous, and a little haven; very calming, light, and comfortable (lots of chairs, cushions etc in the communal areas), and beautifully restored so it still retains a feeling of the history of the...

Spent a couple of nights here recently and loved all aspects of the place. The trees in the garden give their name to the hotel and if you are there at the right time of year breakfast will include mangoes from the trees. There are also day beds with colourful cushions in the garden where you can relax after a... More

It was such a pleasure having you stay with us and thank you both so much for the lovely review! We’re so happy you picked up on the sense of humour (the Bollywood posters in particular) – although the house itself is an old colonial building we wanted it to be a relaxed place for travellers – a place to...

My husband and I spent 2 nights in Galle Fort during a 9 day trip around Southern SL. Whilst we stayed in other lovely (and more expensive) hotels elsewhere in SL, this was by far our favourite. The hotel is tucked down a quiet side-street in an old cinammon factory. The hotel has been lovingly and tastefully restored and is... More
