My husband and I spent 2 nights in Galle Fort during a 9 day trip around Southern SL. Whilst we stayed in other lovely (and more expensive) hotels elsewhere in SL, this was by far our favourite. The hotel is tucked down a quiet side-street in an old cinammon factory. The hotel has been lovingly and tastefully restored and is a quiet, peaceful haven, with a homely feel and is a wonderful place to stay. We stayed in a ground floor double with a (shared) balcony at the back. The room was simple yet chic and stylishly decoarated, with nice touches, such as flowers on the bed and personalised Mango House toiletries.
The owners, Sofie and Hugh hare got it just right. Sofie was extremely friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Sofie arranged for us to have spa treatments at Galle Spa (also great), transfers and restaurant recommendations in the area.
The breakfast was great, with a choice between continental, English or traditional SL.
Having done a mini tour of Galle and enjoyed cocktails at many other of the hotels in Galle, for price, quality and overall experience, Mango House is unrivalled and I cannot recommend it enough!
