 The guesthouse is in a secluded area up a hill approx 15-30min drive from Galle depending on traffic but cheap enough in a tuk tuk around 500-700 rupees depending on the time of day/night (£2-£3) which the owner can arrange easily for you. 

 The WiFi in the room worked fine, aircon was ok, there was a TV as advertised but it didn’t work. 
There unfortunately wasn’t hot water for showering in the mornings & the tank was next to our room which was very noisy as was used a lot for other things.

 The owner was helpful & appeared to be passionate about his guests. 

 This was our biggest issue which is such a shame to say as it really let the place down as it ruined our stay which meant we had to leave. 
The rooms was invested with ants, we found quite a few cockroaches IN THE BED (big & small which is usually a sign of more) - we did raise this as a concern so was moved but the next room had the exact same issues again so we checked behind/under the bed which is where we found a very old dried out dead lizard, lots of dust, used cigarettes end. The bathroom had lots of damp on the walls & ceiling. The fridge had also not been cleaned out as had old water bottles in it from previous guests. We had to cut our stay short due to cleanliness as we did not feel comfortable staying here any longer.
 Also, our washing was sent off for the cost of roughly 4500 rupees (£20) which has been the most expensive during our whole trip but we thought it must be a good service due to the price - when it was returned there was some designer items of clothing that was completed damaged/ruined where the colour from other items had leaked & they had also kept our clothing wash bag!

 We was offered breakfast daily which was ok fresh fruit, juice etc. Dinner was also ok. 

 The grounds are nice, interesting layout. 

 Upon arrival we was told our room wasn't ready, we was a bit annoyed as it was late in the afternoon but thought at least when we return the room will be well presented... this was not the case at all as we had paid for a deluxe suite but was actually given a smaller room which was CRAWLING with thousands of ants all over the toilet so it had not been cleaned at all that afternoon, the room also was full of the owners belongings in all of the drawers & cupboards. After a long tiring day we just wanted to relax but after finding a huge cockroach under our pillows, then more on the floor we could not sleep all night as could hear other things in the room which really unsettled us. Cleaning is clearly only being done on the surface which seems isn't done by an actual cleaner. After raising all these issues we was moved to another room, we gave the owner benefit of doubt as he was very friendly & seemed genuine, however the next room had even bigger cockroaches that scurried across the bed then flew at us, then we found more in the room under the mattress. The fridge had also been used by previous guests. Disappointed by the issues we faced which could of easily been prevented as this completely ruined our stay which therefore meant we had to leave & find somewhere else to stay during the night.

We stayed at Villa Mount Rose for 1 night and the stay was excellent. The villa is built on top of a very peaceful hill in which the environment is quiet, calming and it provides a lot of privacy. Inside the villa and the pool area is beautiful, especially at night with the lights. The pool was very clean and there is also a dining area right beside it which looks pristine. When we arrived as a family from Canada, we were greeted politely by the staff. The food and drinks that we were served to us was also delicious. The owner later visited to greet us during the afternoon and he also happened to be very kind and polite to all of us. We stayed at the room which was right to the left as you enter. The quality of the room met and exceeded my expectations as I am someone from North America so I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting from there. There was even a hotel branded soap, shaving kit, shampoo and much more waiting for us when we arrived in the room, not to mention the bedding was done beautifully. The interior wooden design of the room also looked very alluring. Overall, Villa Mount Rose is a beautiful place and I would highly recommend it to anyone travelling from anywhere offshore. I will definitely be considering staying there next time i visit Sri Lanka. Thank you for the wonderful experience :)

we stayed 4 nights and appreciated that it felt cooler than in hot and noise crazed city center of Galle. just 7 minutes tuc-tuc-ride from city center. from our room (401) we could listen to the birds (and squirrels) all day long. no city noise hearable or disturbing. green surroundings. good food - if necessary all day long :-). nice and helpful staff. villa is built on a rock. everything is well maintained - this includes the swimming pool (with lights in the night). when coming back to Galle we will definitely chose villa mount rose again.

Located about 10 minutes out of Galle on a side of a hill. This gem of a hotel is simply great for both couples and families. It exceeded our expectations by a long way. The rooms were lovely with air con, clean and well maintained. The pool was superb with a little bar so you can have a cheeky beer if you wish. The staff are so so friendly and cannot do enough for you. It’s a very secure hotel and more like a boutique hotel than a big chain. It was the best hotel we stayed in Sri Lanka. Old town Galle is very cosmopolitan and 300 rupees on tuk tuk from hotel. (£1.50). If you want something out of town with peace and quite after a long day this hotel is for you.

We coincidentally found Villa Mount Rose whilst taking a scooter tour passed the coast and exploring this mountain village. We were thirsty and followed the sign by the road, hotel and restaurant. The views driving up were beautiful. We rang the doorbell not knowing what to expect and were greated by the friendliest smiles of the staff. The hotel, restaurant and pool on the mountains is beautiful!! So scenic, you feel relaxed directly. We enjoyed our drink, the surroundings and sweet service so much that we asked if a room was available. After the nicest curry (egg recommended!) and amazing soups we slept so well in the spacious and clean rooms and very nice beds. We really came to rest in Villa Mount Rose! Please dont be influenced by the 1 negative comment, nothing is true. We asked the very friendly owner about that as we did not recognise the comment and photos in any way. His explanation of that stay was completely different. We would definitely come back here again to rest and enjoy nature and great service and food! Thank you to the kitchen chef and the team for making us feel so welcome. Regards!
