I stayed here with my wife for three days, and I have nothing negative to say about this place. The location is perfect, in the middle of Galle Fort, and the room was very pleasant and clean. Staff was great and helpful. I recommend this place for both couples and families.

Very nice "boutique hotel" situated in the fort. Comfortable rooms and exotic bathroom. Very cozy atmosphere that made you feel at home. Very good breakfast and friendly/helpful staff. That was our first hotel in Sri Lanka and we really enjoyed it.

It was very kind of you to take the time to write such a detailed and great review of Mango House! We take your point about the height of the mirror in the wardrobe onboard - and likewise the powerpoint in the bathroom. However, unfortunately the rules do not allow powerpoints there.
