An wonderful use of a beautifully renovated Dutch Cinnamon factory. Rooms delightful, a lovely shaded garden and a interested staff who enjoyed talking to guests about the hotel and Galle. Situation in the middle of the fort is ideal, close to restaurants and tourist features.

We stayed at Mango House with my brother and baby earlier this year. The owners were super friendly and made the booking process a breeze, understanding exactly what we needed for our baby and sorting everything out as promised. The rooms are large, clean and full of character. The bathrooms are quite basic but clean, and we always had hot... More

Great location inside Galle fort. No lunch / dinner available but lots of places to eat in the neighborhood so it wont bother you. Warm welcome and stay. Homely, nice, vibrant and fresh. Loved the use of bright colors in decor. Arranged for a special Srilankan breakfast for us. Good place to stay in Galle for a small group of... More

We loved this small hotel in Galle fort. As soon as you walk in through the lovely garden and enter the colourful dining area it feels peaceful and relaxing. We had a lovely room with a small balcony overlooking the rooftops and gardens of Galle. It was a delight just sitting there looking at the birdlife. Breakfast is served in... More

Mango House is magnificent. An open, airy, and tastefully decorated old Dutch villa in the middle of UNESCO-listed Galle Fort, this hotel is ideally suited to explore the fort walls and the myriad art shops, as well as to relax in a hammock in the sunshine as purple-faced langurs chill out in the eponymous mango trees above your head.

This small hotel felt like a peaceful sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of Galle and yet it is located right in the heart of Galle Fort with lots of shops and restaurants nearby. It is an ideal place to stay for sight-seeing too. As you step through the gateway you enter a small garden before reaching the bright... More

This is a lovely place in a central location with a beautiful garden, lovely open hall with nice lounging furniture, a nice room with a big four poster bed and a good breakfast in the garden in the morning. The price is not cheap but reasonable for the quality of the place which has clearly had a lot of effort,... More

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.
