We stayed in the annex as there were 4 of us. The room was easily big enough, with 4 single beds. The room however had a samp problem and had mould on the walls and a musty smell, if you're allergic beware. Otherwise, room was adequate. They don't allow alcohol in the public spaces either, although the view from the...

Thank you for your valuable feedback. It is most unfortunate that you did not raise these concerns during the course of your the stay so that we could have rectified these issues at the time. The annex were you stayed is not actually part of Rampart View Guesthouse. It is in a neighbouring property which we allocate to guests when...

Galle Fort has emerged as a hot travel destination in recent years, and it's not hard to see why. Wandering its compact network of narrow lanes on foot, each rich in architectural heritage, is an enchanting experience. A night within the Fort itself is recommended, and Rampart View is enviably located by the ramparts near Flag Rock Bastion and within...

Ideal location, on the outer edge of the Galle fort with view on the ramparts and the sea (as its name suggests). Our room had sea view from the balcony and was a basic, clean and comfortable room. We didn't have breakfast or any other meal there, since Galle has many nice little restaurants and is easy to walk around,...

This is a great little budget guesthouse right at the southern end of Galle Fort with a beautiful view out to sea. The breakfast, which was served on the balcony, was really good (omelette, tea, fruit, toast etc...). The room was basic and clean, yes it could be fresher, but it was fine for us. The nice staff arranged a...

We stayed one night and fully appreciated this gh. Room was clean, good service, excellent localization in Galle. The only minus is the bathroom, that isn't really fresh. You can enjoy the beautiful view from the roof. To conclude, good address!

This guesthouse doesn't have a lot to offer besides very nice owners, clean rooms and a pretty good location right inside the fort looking out at the ocean. You can also see the lighthouse from the property which is good. It can be amusing at times as highly curious Lankas watch you eat breakfast on the balcony as they go...

Tucked away on the ramparts is Rampart View Guest House, is may not be the most modern of guest houses but it definitely make up with friendliness of Mr and Mrs Rauf and their family. We were made so welcome and the could not do more to make us feel settled in their home. The rooms are spacious and clean...
