I stayed at Pedlar62 in mid February with my boyfriend, and we both really liked it. We had been planning to try the Fort Printers, which is on the same street and was recommended by a friend of mine, but as it turned out they were fully booked and so we found Pedlar62 on TripAdvisor instead. I was really pleased with our room - lovely big four poster bed with effective mosquito net, nice clean bathroom, a clothes rack and chect of drawers and ample space for us to spread out. As well as the room itself, the balcony is a real plus point - we really enjoyed sitting out there in the afternoons, reading books and people-watching. Pedlar Street is a lovely street in the Galle Fort with great restaurants (Cafe Punto was a great introduction to Sri Lankan cuisine and highly recommended) and very well located for access to the fort walls, which are just a couple of minutes walk away.
Ravi, the owner (along with his very sweet mum and dad who live downstairs) was absolutely lovely, super helpful and friendly. He has plans to turn the rooftop into a lounge bar and I'd love to see that happen!
All in all, I'd highly recommend Pedlar62 for anyone heading to Galle. Galle Fort is such a lovely chilled out place, well worth more than a day trip, and this is the perfect place from which to explore it. We did poke our heads into the Fort Printers, which looked lovely, but is more than double the price of Pedlar62 so it really should be! I'm very glad we found Ravi's place and wish him all future success with his lovely guesthouse.
