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

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

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

Comfortable, clean place for a short stay. The stone floors, in the room and public areas, will not appeal to everyone, nor perhaps the painted concrete wet-room style bathroom, but it was fine for me. The rooms have TV, safe, air-con, etc, so a bit more western-style (for better or worse) than many of the guest houses across Sri Lanka.... More

We stayed in the family room, with its very sweet little loft space, for two nights. This was the nicest hotel we stayed in our two weeks in Sri Lanka- lovely bathrooms, comfortable beds, delicious breakfasts. Also nice staff and we loved seeing the langurs in the yard. Sofie arranged our transportation from Tangalle with a great driver who took... More

Having booked our one night stay with booking.com we arrived at Mango House to find our booking was not recorded! However the staff made us welcome with cool drinks and quickly got 3 rooms ready for us. We loved the garden and open, airy public rooms. We were all happy with our bedrooms which although small had everything we needed.... More

This is a great boutique hotel to relax. It has great character and ambiance. Though this is an old colonial house re-done, it does not have the usual gloomy feel to it. The hotel has a bright ambiance with lots of energy. The staff are very helpful, they go out of their way to make you feel home! The rooms... More

A very beautiful, clean, tranquil boutique hotel which will soothe any weary soul! The rooms and bathrooms are light and airy with an eastern elegance. There is attention to detail in the decor that sets it apart from the usual bed and breakfast establishments. The service was excellent and the breakfast was divine nectar and ambrosia. A must if you... More

Mango house has a great location if you wish to stay within the Fort walls. It is very nicely decorated, rooms are on the small size, but public areas are wonderfully light, airy and spacy. You can easily spend hours staying at either lobby or garden (bring some insect repellent though!). This boutique-feel hotel is happily run by an expat... More
