“Nice room and great view on the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012 via mobile

We stayed one night and fully appreciated this gh. Room was clean, good service, excellent localization in Galle. The only minus is the bathroom, that isn't really fresh.
You can enjoy the beautiful view from the roof.
To conclude, good address!

This guesthouse doesn't have a lot to offer besides very nice owners, clean rooms and a pretty good location right inside the fort looking out at the ocean. You can also see the lighthouse from the property which is good. It can be amusing at times as highly curious Lankas watch you eat breakfast on the balcony as they go for their morning walks along the fort walls.

On the downside the beds are downright shocking. Apart from that though it has everything you would expect a budget guesthouse to have.

Tucked away on the ramparts is Rampart View Guest House, is may not be the most modern of guest houses but it definitely make up with friendliness of Mr and Mrs Rauf and their family. We were made so welcome and the could not do more to make us feel settled in their home. The rooms are spacious and clean and have AC and mosquito nets. make a point of having breakfast which will be served on the terrace, a mix of continental and sri lankan all lovely and fresh. Better still book Mrs Rauf to cook a meal for dinner. We were just taken away by the wonderful mildly spicy dishes. I was asked if I wanted fish or chicken / vegetarian would due available if you wanted. Mild medium or very spicy and we asked for medium and the 5 dishes are amazing.I have need had cardamom rice before but it is so light and fragrant, everything was so fresh and tasty so stop by an enjoy this little guest house.

Room Tip: enjoy Mrs Rauf dinner which you have to book in advance. Plus put the air con on for a while before...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2012

This is an OK transit hotel. The owners are extremely kind and they provided a fabulous breakfast.

The hotel itself is very tired, in dark colours and a bit grubby. There were mosquito and cockroaches in the bathroom.

However the tick-list is all there, air conditioning, hot water, a fan, a mosquito net and mosquito coil. The location is excellent for roaming around the fort.

It is a solid, budget option.
