Well-located in central Galle (very easy to get to train station, pick up a tuk tuk as well as see the sights). Comfortable room with very powerful air conditioning (overnight we were actually a little cold) and the best shower. The breakfast was excellent, especially the Sri Lankan option, and true to its name the mangoes with breakfast were lovely.... More

Right in the heart of Galle Fort, its an ideal location to get out and about and explore. The hotel itself is very clean and has some lovely staff. Our room was great and had everything you would expect. Nice breakfast also sitting in the garden. Overall, we cannot fault the place and loved our stay.

We loved everything about Mango House: the pleasant and tastefully decorated room, the spacious bathroom, the great breakfast in the most beautiful galleried space leading to the garden and really helpful staff. It is very central and easy to visit places of interest, followed by reasonably priced lunch or dinner at one of the many restaurants, bars or even at... More

It's a 15 minute walk from the bus stand. It is actually a house with many rooms. The owners are wonderful people and you don't feel like you are staying in a Hotel. You get a very homely and safe feeling. They have good open rooms with king size beds. It is also centrally located close to the sights and... More

Mango House is an ideal base for exploring the old Fort in Galle. Our balcony room was simple but comfortable and nicely decorated. Breakfast in the courtyard was lovely, and the staff were helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed being in the centre of Galle, which is not to be missed when visiting Sri Lanka.

Thank you for your nice review! Galle Fort is a great place to use as a base with something for everyone including many historical sites, restaurants with a variety of different cuisines, and shopping – and only 10 minutes by tuk tuk is Unawatuna beach with surfing, snorkelling and diving. We are so happy you chose to stay with us... More

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.

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
