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

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

It was dark and gloomy, the sheets were dirty with stains and ripped like an old rag!!! the... More

Good to have a mosquito net without holes and a square one! A very fair price with hot water and fan. The outside verandah is screened by golden bamboo and was... More

There was always someone in the entrance and they lock the gate at night- of course with someone there to open it if you come back late. The room was clean, the bed was... More
