Beach Haven is our 50th accommodation place in six months. We have stayed in a mix of 'budget' hotels, hostels, homestays, B&Bs. Beach Haven offers a large family room. Great A/C. Clean. Mosquito nets. Hot water. Good wifi. Communal area with fridge and very basic self-catering facilities. Hand wash laundry facilities and plenty of drying space. Luggage storage. Lovely, helpful...

Rooms were spacious, airy and even had four poster beds. There was a high standard of cleanliness. The guest house was in a great location. The staff were attentive and helpful when we asked for our bathroom light to be fixed it was done so the next day.

Our fourth return visit which says it all. Very child friendly. Excellent location in the fort. Wonderfully friendly hosts. There is a small sheltered beach near the lighthouse if you want to avoid the craziness of nearby Unawatuna.

The location is excellent (right in the heart of Galle Fort) and the bathroom in our room was newly refurbished and spotlessly clean but at 40 dollars a night it did seem a bit expensive for what is basic accommodation with no breakfast included. Wifi works in the rooms and has good signal.

A very good centre for day trips to local attractions and different beaches. Very helpful family used to dealing with foreigners who can be demanding. Within easy reach of a number of good eating places.

Very basic guesthouse on a wonderful spot. Dutch Fort is a extraordinary place to spent a day or two, very boutique. Beach Haven guesthouse is in the middle of the fort but there is not the slightest scent of boutique. Small room with an uncomfortable bed and a dirty "bathroom" and no breakfast. Not a place to return to.

Room was the least clean during our month trip across Sri Lanka. Towel had holes in, sheets were grubby, various things splatted on walls. Positives: room a good size, plug in mosquito, upstairs room for all guests to use with fridge and cooking facilities. Wi fi decent but hotmail blocked which meant we had to find another venue to check... More

I'd like to thank the charming Mrs Wijenayake for her help this morning. Although the Beach Haven Guest House was full - they have a number of medical students there doing their electives, and it is always popular - she was kind enough, after a number of phone calls, to put me in touch with a sweet young couple who...

We had a lovely stay at the guesthouse. The room was impeccably clean and, although in the middle of the Old Fort, very quiet. The air conditioning functioned very quiet and the mosquito nets were in great condition. The family and staff were very friendly and helpful without being overbearing. We enjoyed delicious, hearty breakfasts at the communal table and... More
