A fantastic location inside the old fort in Galle, the hotel is housed in an old building and is beautifully renovated, with white walls sparse dark antique furniture. The pool is in a wonderful setting and the breakfast, high tea dining area is very low key and relaxing. The free standing baths in the suites were enjoyable and the spa... More

A historical building full of colonial charm. Even the standard room is huge with bed room same size as that of the bedroom itself. Dinner and breakfast both fantastic. The atmosphere of the dining area was so awesome - old title floor, extreme high ceiling, slow turning fans above, sitting on the veranda, feeling the summer breeze, watching the people... More

We had a lovely stay at the Unawatuna Beach in July. The owner and his wife couldn't do enough for us and looked after us really well. The food there was superb, we had some lovely curries and there was pizza for the kids - it was excellent value for money- as was best the guest house. We recommend

What a perfect place to finish our tour of Sri Lanka ! It is a beautiful Manor house inside the Fort of Galle from which you can stroll on the walls or among the little shops which have a good selection of souvenirs and stylist clothes. We had the garden suite, very spacious, well furnished and spotless. The food was... More

We were first shown around the property moving from the lush outdoor grounds and beautiful pool area, to the... More
