We only managed to stay at the Mango House for one night, however it was one of the most delightful and charming stays we have ever had in any hotel. Lovely and attentive staff, tasteful decor, delicious breakfast - all round a great place and very good value for money.

Stayed in mango house for 2 nights. Very friendly staff. Tasty breakfast. Nice clean room, if a little small. Comfy bed. Brilliant location right in the heart of Fort Galle. Delicious mango juice on arrival. Great places to eat nearby. They arranged taxi pickup from airport and were very helpful with any queries. Couldn't fault it. Worth the price.

Mango house is a gorgeous boutique hotel in a great location in galle fort. The decor in the entrance hall is beautiful and stylish. We loved the local art and elements of local decor.

Really lovely such a change from all those marble floored shines hotels. We were made to feel welcomed and had a relaxing two days. Loved seeing the monkeys in the trees on the garden. The hotel is ideally located. Would stay again.

A huge thank you for your great review! You are right – we have tried very hard to be a far cry from the marbled floored shiny hotels ☺ Hopefully Mango House is a home away from home to our guests where they can relax and enjoy their holiday. The monkeys are also very welcome and definitely always great fun! More

Excellent location in the centre of Galle. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The rooms are clean and functional. The breakfast options were more than adequate and the dining was either in the lobby area or peaceful garden that fronts the walled property.

Mango House is exquisite to look at, a beautiful Moorish-style building with a walled garden and a lovely entrance hall; all white walls and fuscia accents. The location is fantastic for exploring the Fort (which can easily be done in a day); there are loads of restaurants nearby, and tuk tuks out of town are plentiful and cheap. The room... More

The Mango House is a beautifully maintained open and airy colonial mansion in the center of the Gall Fort. It is an ideal location for walking around the fort or a stroll into New Town. The staff were very obliging and accommodating, especially when we had to spend about a half an hour on their only phone rearranging travel plans.... More

Thank you so much for your lovely review! When we decided on the interior design of Mango House we wanted to keep it in conformity with the overall style of the house – Sri Lankan colonial architecture – but at the same time not make it too dark and severe. We wanted to keep it light and fresh and contemporary,... More
