We stayed at the Galle Heritage Villa by accident as our intended accomodations turned out to be inappropriate for our 3 person tour group. The Heritiage Villa was not expecting us but neverlheless did everything they could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Food was brought to us for breakfast and 1 dinner from the Jetwing Lighthouse and was served elegantly. The food was excellent.
The rooms are air-conditioned, large and comfortable. There were some mosquitos but they were gone after a thorough spraying of the room. There are also some plumbing problems which have to do with the city itself and the hotel is well aware of it and as helpful as they can be.
If you want to be in the thick of things and be able to walk around this Fort City, I strongly recommend the Galle Heritage Villa.
There is no pool, no beach, no view. It is a genuine city experience.
