Mrs Wijenayake and her daughter run a very nice guesthouse in the middle of Galle Fort. It was lovely to talk about Sri Lanka, Fort and the local situation with them. They were very helpful organising tours and transports.

Really pleased we booked in here. Rooms are fairly basic but clean and hot showers. The owners are friendly and helpful speaking good english. Nice kitchen area with tea and coffee making kit which is a nice touch. Good breakfasts provided and a long veranda which is good for people watching. Happy to recommend this place.

The location of this guest house is its winning quality. It's a quaint and very friendly establishment with a good feel. Our room was a little underwhelming, though, with gum stuck to the bed head and the bathroom not as clean as it should have been. The room was a little dark and pokey, too. We also got roused on...

This guest house is run by a really nice and very helpful family, and it's in a great location in the middle of Galle Fort. Our hosts provided excellent help with planning our onward transport and provided chilled water (at a good price) plus mosquito coils for our evenings. The bed linen was clean (though it didn't fit well; see... More

We stayed at Beach Haven for two nights and were very happy with it. This is a relatively basic place, but the rooms had air conditioners, fans and mosquito nets, so are definitely good value for money. Both the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and well looked after. The staff are really helpful and gave us lots of useful information... More

The rooms are clean and reasonably priced. We stayed in a non AC room, which was clean and well equipped. Not massive, but it had everything we needed. The location is excellent and the view makes it feel like a quaint village. We even spotted some peacocks from the roof one evening. There is a little kitchen/ lounge area that... More

We chose this place because it is in a very good location and the price is acceptable for Galle. The rooms where we stayed (Downstairs) were a bit old, but clean. It was very noisy because the family is all day watching tv very loud. But at night the respect silence.

Galle can be very expensive to stay it but for a thrifty traveler who doesn't want to stay in a dorm room this is perfect. The owners were very helpful and friendly and the room was clean and comfortable. there free tea and coffee facilities and an excellent communal area.
