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.

A perfect stay! We booked the entire Mango House for 10 days over New Years and had the best time! The hotel is a beautifully restored colonial house on a quiet street with a lovely well-kept garden – maybe the only garden in Galle Fort. We saw a Kingfisher, a couple of parakeets and several monkeys – I think they... More

We spent 4 nights in Galle Fort at the Mango House. It's a nicely decorated boutique hotel inside an old cinnamon factory. We had a room on the first floor with a nice little balcony, and view of some terra cotta tiled roof tops with squirrels, birds and peacocks. Quite a small room with only one basic wardrobe, but has... More

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review and we were happy to have you stay. I do remember you asked for a one of the balcony rooms upon your arrival.

The place is lovely, nicely decorated, breakfast is great and the location is very convenient. We were having a great stay until someone decided that 6am was a perfectly acceptable time to do piping work on our terrace. Noisy, dirty and intruding. This completely ruined the impression we had of that otherwise very nice property.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review! Please let me start by apologising that your stay with us wasn’t satisfactory. During your stay we were, as hotel management, unfortunately faced with a bit of a nightmare, which coincided with Sri Lanka’s presidential election. For days running up to the election both the water and electricity had been... More

I recently stayed at Mango House for two nights, it was beautifully designed, well kept, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable beds, excellent breakfast, superb location. It is an oasis of calm and I would highly recommend this place!

Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are thrilled that you found Mango House to be an oasis of calm. Life in the tropics can get a bit hectic at times, with the heat and hustle and bustle, so we try our best to make the hotel a sanctuary for our guests. You are welcome back any time! More

This was our second stop and definitely a favourite. After one night we decided to extend our stay from two days to three. We arrived in a pouring rainstorm and rushed in without stopping to admire the lush courtyard /garden which sets the tone for the hotel. Simple day beds and a bright pink hammock are made for relaxation as... More

A huge thank you for your super review! We are so happy you had a good stay here and thank you for your nice words! The hotel is a labour of love, so we are chuffed when guests enjoy themselves as much as we do! We do sell quilts made of vintage saris along with a few other items with... More

We arrived in Galle not knowing what to expect, but Mango House didn't disappoint. The entrance through the garden, full of delightfully colourful, tropical plants set the scene. All the staff were so welcoming, the room was simple, but provided a haven from the heat (& the mosquitoes, which had eaten us alive at the previous swanky hotel in Kandy!).... More

It was such a pleasure having you stay and were thrilled you decided to stay longer! Mosquitoes annoyingly can be a problem everywhere in the tropics, so we do all we can to keep them away and ensure our guests and friends have a good stay and a comfortable night’s sleep – we’re happy we’re winning that battle!

We stayed two nights here before getting a taxi to the airport to fly home. The guest house is in a great location in Galle Fort with a lush tree filled court yard. The communal spaces are beautiful, clean and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We had a balcony room upstairs, with a very comfortable queen bed.... More

We are happy you had a good time and it was great having you stay with us! We were in two minds as to whether we should install TVs in the rooms; on one hand many guests don’t want to see TV while on holiday while others want to keep up with the news, follow sports events or just relax... More
