This was the perfect little guest house. Its location right in the middle of the fort could not have been better, and the lovely lady who runs it was very helpful. The rooms were comfortable - a decent size, the bed was comfy, the shower was hot and the mosquito net had no holes in it. There is an upstairs... More

Stayed with 4 friends in a shared dorm room (2 doubles and a single). The room was basic and comfortable with good air conditioning. The veranda is a nice area to sit and have a drink. It feels a bit like you're visting a grandparents house when you arrive as the downstairs has an eclectic collection of ornaments and furniture,... More

The location in Galle is good and the veranda is a lovely space to hang out in. There are good kitchen facilities but I felt that the standard of room that we received for 3000 rp was not worth the price; a minutes walk away we stayed for 2000 in a room better than that of Beach Haven. The women... More

Also worth mentioning is that it was very clean. The owner was friendly and helpful. We also appreciated the laundryline on the rooftop and the terrace. Nice place to stay!!

We stayed for 3 nights in this well located guesthouse. Our room was nice and clean and the two large beds had mosquito nets, but we had trouble getting the old AC to function properly. The house has a common kitchen and a lovely veranda. We went to see the owner for advice on the transport costs to respectively the... More

Beach Haven is a lovely place to stay, the room I stayed in was clean and spacious, and good value for money. The AC was welcomed, and the hot water was working. There is a nice communal and terrace area with self-catering facilities, which is nice to be able to get out of the room. It is in a great... More

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.
