We only had one night to enjoy this gorgeous little boutique hotel in the middle of the Galke a Fort area. It's beautifully decorated, our courtyard room was spacious, spotless and very comfortable. Staff were friendly , attentive and couldn't have been more helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Probably the best value place we stayed in in Sri Lanka. Cool, relaxed, calm atmosphere, wonderful welcome, lovely scented rooms with glorious four-poster beds and mosquito nets. Fantastic location right in the heart of Galle fort. Amazing breakfast. Super friendly staff and incredibly helpful - I accidentally left my camera there and they very kindly and efficiently posted it on.... More

My favourite haven I knew immediately that I would love Mango House from the moment I stepped into the wonderous tropical garden from the heat and bustle from Galle Fort. Then a warm greeting from the staff on arrival with a cool sweet iced tea. A renovated colonial house this boutique hotel is smack in the middle of the old... More

Mango House was our favourite hotel in Sri Lanka. We had a balcony room which was lovely. The breakfasts were great with a good choice of english, continental or Sri Lankan, plus fruit or curd and muesli and tea or coffee. The courtyard is gorgeous, as is the reception area of the hotel. We met the resident monkeys in the... More

After a long horrible flight (our planes were delayed twice!) we arrived to Sri Lanka in the wee hours of the morning and the driver was waiting for us in the airport courtesy of Mango House, so, thank you for sorting it! After about two hours we arrived and although we had been warned that check in was at 2... More

Our travel company had originally suggested that we stay our first night in Colombo, but as we were travelling to Sinharaja the next day we insisted that we stay in Galle. The company recommended Mango House. We were delighted that they did. It was extremely quiet and comfortable. We had a lovely courtyard room with an enormous bed and a... More

We had two nights in The Mango House and it was the prefect place to explore gorgeous Galle. The B&B is set in a lovely garden with seating, a hammock and some lovely twinkly fairy lights. Inside, the decor is a mix of Sri Lankan antique furniture with bright pink and lime green accents and some really retro Sri Lankan... More

we stayed here 2 nights. Our tour company had booked an upstairs room with balcony- but we were met by the owner and given a downstairs room- with a small walled courtyard.- which was fine, and we didn't complain. The entrance and lobby are delightful- very peaceful. Hot tea/coffee were available 24 hrs a day, the bathroom was nice with... More

we stayed for two nights in January and had a great time in Galle Fort. The building was lovely and the decoration well thought out. Our room was clean and had a lovely little balcony overlooking the garden at the back. The breakfasts were really good. Everyone made us feel very welcome from the minute we arrived. Overall a lovely... More

We unfortunately only had 1 night here - wished it had been more. Beautiful place with peaceful gardens and right in the centre of Galle Fort. Breakfast was had outside in the garden which was lovely. Incredibly helpful staff and just a delight to have stayed here. We will be back.
