We stayed with Kodi and Meena for 2 weeks and I can't say how happy I am that we have found this place! The two are very lovely persons. We could feel that they enjoyed hosting us and the others, always willing to show us Sri Lankan culture and hospitality. I will never forget the nice evenings of cooking-lessons, Rotti-eating...

Kodi and his family make you feel right at home. They take such good care of you that it feels like you're staying with friends from the first day you arrive. His house is an old Dutch house that exudes charm and history with well sized rooms. It's also situated right in galle fort which is the touristy area of... More

What a lovely place in a quiet street in Galle Fort. Our family - 2 adults and two 5-year-old children - stayed in the apartment, which was the entire upper floor with two bedrooms, a very large living room and a balcony. Who likes original colonial style instead of new boutique hotels will love it. What really made the difference... More

I came to the Beatrice House first time because a friend of mine stayed there and she really liked it. When I saw the house, I immediately knew why. It is located in a quieter street of the beautiful old Fort, which is part of the UNESCO world heritage and is a huge nice house. It is just a footwalk... More

This is a magnificent house overlooking the beach and the Dutch fort. The place was very quiet and peaceful and it was only a 2 minute walk to the beach for a swim. The generous hospitality and the friendly reception made it a truly memorable visit.

We came upon Kodi and Beatrice House quite by chance escaping from a nasty room elsewhere and what a piece of luck it was!! We agree 110% with other reviewers who rave about the place. This is a genuine Dutch Colonial house with plumbing, air con etc but not refurbished up to a chi chi boutique-y style. We loved this... More

Our feeling at this Beatrice house when we stay was so memorable. It was hard to believe you can stay and sleep in such an old beautiful house which built many and many years ago, it is an history you can feel when you look at the building, the furniture and decoration. This house is a magnificent example of Dutch... More

I have never experienced such genuine warmth and hospitality in a guest house, anywhere. Kodi and his family are perfect hosts and made me feel instantly welcome without being in any way overbearing. A rare combination. Kodi also speaks excellent English so could understand my needs and help me out which he did often. Furthermore, the house itself is a... More

Walking down the cobbled streets of the Galle Fort, the beautifully preserved/restored Dutch Colonial architecture and the magnificent view of the Indian Ocean alone is enough to convince a traveller to hang up her boots and settle down in this wonderful corner of the world. The house neatly sits in a somewhat ideal location, close to the ocean and protected... More
