“Most beautiful rooms we've seen!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

The most beautiful guesthouse we stayed in! Really recommend this place the owners are super friendly and the rooms are extremly nice! It is located inside the fort with many restaurants and great shops around. It is a little bit expenive (no breakfast included) but totally worth it!

We thought this place held a high standard. The room was quiet, very clean and comfy. Was good to have a high shower with high pressure, soft bed and air con. Nice seating area on the top floor. Friendly dog too

Seagreen Guesthouse offers the best of everything - friendly and helpful staff, great location - opposite park with ocean views - modern spacious rooms, clean and modern bathroom. Great location within the fort and great food available next door, but the restaurant does charge that pesky 10 percent service charge. However, it is very convenient with friendly owner. Loved sitting and talking to Naman and Maike and finding out more about Galle. We have no hesitation in recommending this guesthouse. We felt lucky there was a vacancy and loved our stay there!!!!!

The rooms and hospitality was excellent, good location inside the fort and tasty food next doors.
At the end of the day, grab your book and sit on the terrace, watch some locals play a game of cricket before watching the sunset. Your rupies are worth spending here.

We were lucky to find free rooms in this guesthouse and we were very pleased with our choice. Guesthouse is on the sideroad of the inner city of Galle with view of greenery and ocean. The owners are beautiful people and very helpful in every way. Rooms are nicely furnished, quite spacious with good facilities. Next or part of the guesthouse is a restaurant with very good choice of food for reasonable prices. Overall we would highly recommend this place to everyone looking for not too expensive but very comfortable place to stay. Hope we'll go back once again.

Room Tip: top rooms have sunset view

In writing this review I really can't add much more than what others have already said, however I still feel compelled to express how lovely the owners, and every member of staff really are. If we had several thousand dollars to spend we could have tried plusher, more luxurious hotels in the old City but we felt privileged to be staying within the old city walls for a fraction of the price in ultra clean and modern rooms, and with hospitality that money can't buy.

I cannot recommend it enough.

Like everyone is saying, Seagreen is great in virtually every aspect! But I doubt if everyone knows how nice the Seagreen people really are. Well, I have a story to tell. Two weeks ago, upon checking in at Seagreen, mom and i were warmly greeted by Noman and his dog. Then we went out strolling. Unfortunately, my mom slipped, and had her ankle dislocated. She was in great pain and could not walk, not even stand. We really did not expect any accident and did not know what to do. Desperately, we called Seagreen for help. The moment we approached Seagreen, Noman was already waiting outside. I knew immediately he was the man to trust. Noman drove us to the hospital, took us to the emergency room to see the specialist, walked back and forth between rooms and counters to help us deal with local people, smoothe the complex procedures, and request quality and efficient treatment for my mom. And his wife - a very very nice lady - was also there accompanying my mom when I went to different counters, offered comforting words and warm encouragement. They said that they were ready to offer any kind of help, all I had to do was ask. In the midnight after the treatment, Noman came to pick us up and drove us back to Seagreen. The next morning, Noman contacted travel agency to consult about the flight ticket reschedule issues for us and arranged a minivan to take us to the airport. The minivan driver was extremely considerate and drove quite steadily instead of rushing on the highway. My mom and I want to thank Noman and his wife for all the things you had done for us. Most of all, thank you for making sure my mom receive proper treatment in time. Now her leg is recovering well. How could we have managed there in a foreign country without you? Yet we felt terribly sorry for causing you so much trouble. I would also like to thank the two guys from Seagreen for carrying mom up/downstairs. (Besides, we want to thank the doctors and nurses in the hospital, very professional and helpful.) We do regret missing the beautiful scenery in Galle fort, yet we feel quite lucky to get to know the people in Seagreen and all the other good people who offered help.
P. S. Staying in the airconned room is enjoyable. The pine-apple pancakes there were awesome.

Room Tip: considering booking in advance even in low season.
