We stayed at this lovely place last week, after just arriving from Columbo. The bedrooms are big, spotlessly clean and have air con, if you need it... It is close to the centre of town, but not too close, near the beach and the owners are very friendly.... The top floor rooms have lovely views through the bamboos and we... More

We booked this property through Booking.com for 6 nights over New Year. Despite having received a confirmation from booking.com, when we arrived at the property the owner did not have a room for us. He said it is because too many people book and then don't show up, so he gives the room to walk-in customers instead. There were 2... More

The guesthouse is located near the beach which is nice but I found my room to be quite stuff and always felt damp. There was a nice balcony to hang out on and watch the monkeys play in the trees. There are many restaurants nearby and the hotel had a laundry service that was reasonably priced. I booked online in... More

We didn't use air conditioning as the ceiling fan was very good and the shower was great with lots of hot water. The guesthouse is ideally located, about 20 seconds from the beach and near lots of restaurants. All the rooms also... More

Had a great two night stay at Primrose. The owner and family are helpful and friendly. Kingsize bed. Spacious airy bathroom. Lovely balcony with monkeys thrashing around in the bamboo. One minute walk to the beach. Lonely Planet description was exactly right! Incidentally Galle is very interesting and extremely close by. Don't miss out on the 'new' city. The Fort... More

We stayed here for our anniversary as a short break. The place is conveniently located and is a treat to be in. It was worth every penny and the staff and service and attention to detail especially the romantic package was excellent. The interiors were plush and luxurious and we just enjoyed everything about our stay. Very highly recommended and... More

From the reviews we thought it would be a good guest house, Wrong! from the outside it looks very clean, however the room we had was on the top floor and we were told it was the best room in the place. It was dark and gloomy, the sheets were dirty with stains and ripped like an old rag!!! the... More
