“Perfect guesthouse!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Pedlar62 is a very nice guesthouse, very clean, very tasteful interior design with modern rooms and bathrooms, well equipped (mosquito net, fan, A/C in some rooms, hot water). Beds are really comfortable with white sheets :) It has a lovely terrace where you can have breakfast and a lovely little library where you can borrow books. Breakfast is also good. Very good value for money overall. Ravi and his parents are very nice hosts, welcoming and taking of everything. We wish them a lot of success with their guesthouse! They deserve it!

This is a lovely B&B centrally, but peacefull located in Galle Fort. Ravi does everything to make your stay comfortable, including organising drivers and tuk-tuks for excursions. The rooms are immaculately clean - ours had A/C and a fan, as well as a mosquito net. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet. Breakfast, on the terrace, was good. Definitely to be recommended.

Excellent place - Ravi and his family were fantastic hosts - great rooms, great breakfast, great location, great value. The only complaint I would have is that everything was quoted in USD; when we came to pay the exchange rate used on the bill for rupees was slightly unfavourable and higher than any other hotel that I stayed at in Sri Lanka. Not worth haggling over a few hundred rupees at the time, but might be worth confirming the price in rupees as well as in USD. But this is a tiny point; overall the place was great and I would definitely return.

We stayed here for our last 2 nights in sri lanka. For this price range it is a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are very well designed by the owner himself and are really clean. It is situated in the centre of the fort near some great shops and restaurants. The breakfast is alsno good and the family is really nice. This is truly ons of the best places we stayed at in sri lanka! Good value for Your money!

We are so glad we chose to stay at Pedlar62. Galle was the last place on our itinerary and we had planned to splurge. The Printers was full and some of the others a little out of our price range. How glad we were we stumbled across Pedlar62 as it is not in lonely planet. It was certainly the best room we stayed in, very romantic with a four post bed, mosquito net and lovely furniture. From speaking to other travellers the rooms are on par with some of the rooms at the larger hotels in Galle. Because it is part of a family home, the entrance is obviously not as impressive as some of the other places, but for a third of the cost, this is obsolete as you can always dine at the other hotels anyway. Ravi and his parents are very gracious hosts and can help you with anything you need. Ravi recommended Jungle Beach to us, a small cove outside of Galle and it was perfect for what we wanted to do that day.

Breakfasts were more of the usual (i.e. fruit and eggs) but cooked to perfection and great coffee. There is also the option of a more traditional breakfast which we had on the last day and was very tasty. Oh and the bed sheets were beautiful and the a/c was very nice as it is very hot and humid.

Galle is a great place to visit and the Fort area is very relaxing with quality boutique shopping, well worth a trip.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the top floor.

The guest house is centrally located inside the Fort and the rooms are basic but clean. There is a nice verandah on which to take your breakfast and to hang out. Ravi and his family are great hosts. The breakfasts are simple but filling. This is a great choice at this price level.

situated in the middle of the fort; dark wooden furniture and white walls - looks beautiful; family managed guesthouse with familiy livingroom on the groundfloor; AC is available but not neccessary; breakfast is served at the balcony on the first floor while you can spot the people on the street; we stayed only one night for US $ 45 here; we reserved a fan room, but got a free upgrade for an AC room
