“excellent location!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2014

stayed at the rampart view guest house for 6 nights and had a very relaxing stay.
This place benefits from the best view in the fort and is literately steps away from the sea.
The host are very kind people and are there when you need them and not when you dont
The balcony provides a breathtaking view and is a nice place to spend a lazy afternoon watching the sunset.
There are nice places to eat near by and travel in the fort area is cheap by using a tuk-tuk
would defiantly recommend this place for a holiday.

Room Tip: al rooms are good,

The Rampart View Guest House is located right next to the fort wall and you can sit and watch the sunset from the balcony - but never the less it is far more cozy and beautiful to walk on the wall and enjoy the local life there. The house has great potential, but the owners do not seem to have managed to make the place really nice. A little gentler light in the ceiling could for example be a great advantage.The AC was so noisy that it was actually hard to sleep - so all in all we slept pretty bad the 2 nights we stayed in the room. The price for a double room was 6,000 rubies - and compared to what we've got for the price elsewhere in Sri Lanka, I don't think Rampart can get more than three stars. I appreciate the place mostly for being clean but there are so many cozy places in Galle - next time I will stay in one of those. It is not a big advantage to have your room so close to the sea as the sea is within reach everywhere.

RampartView, Owner at Rampart View Guest House, responded to this review, July 27, 2014
It is shocking to know the reveiw about this guest who has given 3 stars and also who has stayed for the 2nd day as well. This perticular room has a view of the sunset and when offering the guest the rest of the rooms we have, the choice is mostly for this. If it is a noisy air-condition and since we have not excepted any advance payment for the room I do not see any neccessity for them to continue staying for the 2nd day as well. when checking out I can remember this perticular guest saying " We had a nice stay and we enjoyed it much". All the air-condition units in all the rooms are new and it has been installed 3 months ago with the 1st service done and the Warranty is still good for 2 years up to today all the air-conditions are in good condition. The rooms are booked all most every day and we are full most of the days and we never had any complains about the air-conditions. If this perticular air-condition in the room had any problem and reported to us we could have attend and help them.

Totally met our expectations. Room had a great view for 'people watching' and lovely sea breeze. Location was a great base for day trips. Nice to walk back through the Fort each day. Mattress comfortable, hot water, a/c and fan working, good wifi. Hosts were extremely helpful and not intrusive. Communication prior to arrival was good. Lovely meal prepared for us on first night.

Galle is the first station of our Sri Lanka honeymoon trip and Rampart View really gave us an amazing experience! We stayed at the room facing directly to Indian Ocean for three nights. This is the best location in the whole fort.The room is cozy and comfortable just like a home. You got everything you need. We feel very lucky to stay with Mr Rauf's family! We are very interested in Islam religion and Mr Rauf is very open-minded to answer a lot of questions. He also invited us to go to Mosque to attend the food distribution, which is an unique and unforgettable experience for us. Mrs Rauf is a beautiful and grace lady. She prepared delicious and different breakfast for us for three days. The son Haze is a lovely and shy boy:) You will never regret to choose Rampart View at Galle! My husband and I miss Galle and Rampart View a lot and definitely we will go back Rampart View soon!

I kind of hate writing this review as I know it to be the best place to stay in the Fort. And I hope it doesn't change with the popularity a great review can bring, but YES, this place is the best place in the fort. One of the biggest reasons for returning to Galle was, we felt cheated because our last trip to Sri Lanka was accommodated way out of the fort and felt stranded. Don't even bother with the fancy places or inner fort, The view of the ocean is just outside, we were so lucky, Thankyou
