Good location in the fort overlooking the ocean. Visited for lunch as it has an upstairs with good views. Quite busy but was ignored by staff, when I approached someone they just pointed to a seat right by the entrance. It was chaos, then a lady entered with a party of 30, they were obviously keen to seat. It was... More

Nice, affordable guesthouse that overlooked the walls of Galle Fort into the ocean. Slept three, delicious breakfast and fast wifi. Remember it is a "guest" house (the owners live downstairs), so it's a bit weathered, but gosh, one can't beat the value for a short stay.

The room was clean with little details such as a kettle with some coffee and tea that we didn't find in other places in Sri Lanka. The view is spectacular and it is very pleasant to sleep with the sound of the waves. The highlight of the stay was definitely the delicious Sri Lankan breakfast with hoppers and egg curry,... More

The view was even better than advertised. I would say that at it's worth a night's stay just for that. The ladies that run the guesthouse are also very nice and friendly. The breakfasts are pretty sizeable and delicious both the English and Sri Lankan ones. However, it is pretty pricey for the size of the room you get and... More

This GH is very basic compared with what we experienced around SriLanka, the positive side is it's position and the view it comes with. A part from the view the rooms are old, not really nice and clean Price is well above what one would pay for the same GH in another city, you will pay for the view Do... More

I don't want to have a big downer on this place, the owner was a very friendly lady, the room was clean, the aircon and bathroom all worked, there is nothing wrong with it. However, it is expensive by Sri Lanka standards. I accept Galle is expensive because inside the Fort is a small area that commands a big premium.... More

We stayed in a double first floor room with stunning views over the sea for sunset. Rooms were lovely, clean and had great showers. Sri Lankan and English breakfast served on the terrace and very friendly staff. I would certainly recommend this place.

Perfect location. Right next to the sea wall, so we could easily sit on the roof top terrace to watch the sunset. Rooms are spacious and clean. Choice of local or western breakfast served individually on the terrace with the great view. Owners friendly.
