We had 4 nights staying at Mrs Khalid's guest house (106 Pedler Street). We had 2 rooms which were large and simply furnished with air conditioning units and large balconies with sea views. Towels, sheets and mozi nets are provided. One of the rooms (the double) has a fridge which is useful for storing bottled water etc. The bathrooms are... More

I stayed for eight nights in 2004.(december 2012 is wrong but I had to put something there) I am writing this now because in the reviews I read no one has yet to mention the fact Mrs. Khalid might be the best cook in the world. Apparently there have been renovations. In the photos I noticed some of the same... More

A real find! Thanks to our friends in Sri Lanka for finding this charming renovated Dutch house. Mrs Khalid is friendly and attentive as are the staff. We were at the front of the house and the room was a good size with a well appointed bathroom. Breakfast is provided if required and is more the substantial. We were in... More

The new Khalid's is a lovely place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable, with beaut new mattrices, fantastic showers. Having the front rooms is best, with the wide balcony to sit on and soak up the view over the ocean. Attentive house boys are there to assist you.

We found Khalid's having left another guest house which we had booked online and could not accept. Khalid's is in another league, while still providing good value for money. We had a first-floor room at the back of the old place, with a large balcony overlooking the roofs of Galle, a large bedroom with four-poster style mosquito netting, efficient fan... More

We had an unpleasant stay at khalids guesthouse - we were put in the new wing which has just been redone. It was totally charmless - or worse - missing basic things like curtains and bathmats (its early days so these might go in over the next few weeks), but generally seemed badly planned: air-conditioning where the vent ended in...

My friend & I visited Galle in Dec'10. It was our first night in Sri Lanka & we were thrilled at this lovely place. It is right in the heart of Galle Fort area - walking distance from just about everything worth visiting. Our 1st floor room overlooked Pedlar's Street and even a slice of the ocean. Rooms are spacious,... More

We were travelling to Sri Lanka in December/January and, because it is really busy at that time of year, booked far in advance (in August). We booked Mrs. Khalid's through hostelworld.com. Everything seemed great from the reviews and from our (MULTIPLE) email contacts with the staff. When we got to Galle, however, we found that the guest house was closed... More

This is a colonial style building with wooden floors and beds. Don't listen to the Lonely Planet - the genial manager, Sabri, didn't mind when we came home at 4am in the morning on New Year's Eve (2010). We missed breakfast the next day,  but he whisked up a tasty brunch for us at 3pm. The location of the Guest House is great,... More

Home from home - very friendly staff, excellent breakfast, clean and large room, comfortable bed, quiet, good position in Galle near the outer sea wall. Mrs Khalid's son kindly allowed us to use his computer and internet connection whenever required. We also employed the driver to take us back to the airport - well worth while, quick,cheap. safe and comfortable.
