Upon arriving at the guest house me and my companions were cheerfully greeted by Mrs. Goolagong and her staff. We were given an extremely nice room, very clean and great price. There is also a nice communal kitchen and people watching balcony. Perhaps the only concerning aspect of our stay was Mrs. Goolagong was obsessed with watching the countless cameras... More

This is nice looking guesthouse where we stayed three nights. At first we had a room ground level, totally in the back. This room was okay, but very humid so we went to an other, bit more expansive room for 3000 rp at the first floor (#5). This was a nice room, but the bathroom is a bit small. All... More

We stayed just one night as we were passing through Galle, and it was a memorable stay. The family room was large, with 2 double beds and had what I call 'proper' mosquito nets (with a rectangular shape, rather than going up to one central point) - the nets actually cover the whole area of the bed and don't squash...

I stayed for 16 days in September my fourth visit to this helpful and friendly family. Nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are clean with mosquito nets over the beds and have hot and cold water showers. The breakfast is excellent taken round a large family table downstairs but there is also a sitting room upstairs for guests to... More

A proper family guesthouse in a great location. The room was clean and airy with an onsuite shower room. The beds were comfortable and tea and coffee making facilities are provided free of charge in the common room. Very good value for money and only a few minutes walk from the lighthouse.

Spent a lovely 4 weeks here with my boyfriend whilst we completed our medical elective in the local hospitals. The family are all very kind and helpful as are the other women that work there. There is CCTV so we never felt unsafe leaving valuables in the room when we were at the hospital during the day time. In our... More

I stayed with the family for 4 weeks and I can only recommend this place. The rooms are clean and come with everything you need (basic things, nothing fancy). It's located in the middle of the Fort which means it is safe and in walking distance to everything. Whenever I had a question I approached the family and they were... More

The place is the oldest homestay in galle owned by a very nice family. The rooms are very clean (especially bathrooms) and comfortable, though our was a little smelly. The location is excellent within the galle fort. We can warmly recomend the place!

The location is quite nice, but most of the guesthouses in Galle Fort are the same since it's a small town. The room is clean, but need to update the pillows and the bedsheets. Bathroom space is very limited. There are chairs in front of most rooms and common area for free coffee and tea. The price is fine, but... More

We stayed here for three nights. The owner is very friendly and the room is basic but good. The only thing we did not like was the smelly pillow. It was probably due to the humidity, so that it had not dried well. Further it was perfect as said. Good location, a very nice common room with balcony upstairs, and... More
