I stayed with Anne and her family for two months while working in the area and I had an absolutely amazing time! The apartments are clean, spacious and just an incredible value if you compare it to other places in Unawatuna or Galle Fort. The location is perfect if you want to discover Galle and the surrounding area, but still... More

We booked Anne's Maisonette because we are two female students on a budget and read previous reviews which sounded great. However, as lovely as Anne was herself, this is not for the average traveller who wants somewhere comfortable and clean to stay. First off it is about 30mins by tuc tuc from anything remotely central. You feel very far out... More

What can I say...the Ratwatte family is a wonderful one. So helpful and funny. To wake up in these surroundings with a breakfast deluxe is a delight! You can also find some cheap and very tasty food close by. And there's a supermarket nearby as well. Anne and her family are also superb guides when it comes to Sri Lankan... More

I booked this room through Agoda thinking it was much closer to the beach/Galle/Unawatuna and on first realisation that it is actually quite a way inland from these sights, I was a little disappointed. However, the room was lovely - better than some in Sri Lanka that I had paid douoble or triple the price for! Clean, spacious, with a... More

We made a reservation via Agoda before arriving and were told that the room had been taken. Anne said she could prepare another room for us, so we sat down an waited. When we were shown to our room we freaked out because it was as if we had been shown to the servants' quarters. A sad, mosquito filled room... More

I stayed at Anne's Maisonette for a few weeks while working in Galle. Getting to the city required a 20-30 minute bus ride, but at the end of each day I was always more than happy to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city and escape to this quiet residential neighborhood. The room was an incredible value... More

Anne Maisonnette is a beautiful and safe place to stay in Galle to discover and enjoy the real sri lankan way of life. We stayed in the flat for 4 months and during this period Anne and her family really took care of us : laundry, bikes, travellings tips, and of course sri lankan typical food (or western food if...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Named with a perfect French word, as in the word picturing the real meaning ‘small cottage’, Anne’s Maisonnette, is a very beautiful guest house located in the main town of Southern Province in Sri Lanka & is managed by Mahen, Anne & their teenaged sons. With a ten minute drive to the old Dutch fortress, Anne’s Maisonnette is situated on a hillock with a panoramic view. The cozy apartments are surrounded by well landscaped, quiet garden which conveys the eco friendly concept. The lady of the household, Anne, is very friendly, helpful where you feel quite at home. Mahen is a hotelier who has experience of nearly 20 years in leading hotels, overseas & Sri Lanka. Anyone who tastes his mouth watering menus, including western & Sri Lankan delicacies will have an unforgettable experience. ... more   less
