“Great location, comfortable villa”
Reviewed December 3, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed 2 night in this super villa. The house was very spacious and comfortable. Rooms tastefully furnished, clean and comfortable.
The staff was excellent. We ordered our food for each meal, the staff shopped for what ever was needed and produced a good meal.
Location was very good. Lots of shops around.
Only thing we missed was a beach especially for the kids.

“In a word..........Superb!”

From the moment you enter The Ambassador's House, you know you have made the right choice. Located in the heart of Galle Fort, the villa is luxurious without being overwhelming and the staff are attentive without being overbearing. The meals prepared by the resident chef are fantastic, whether it's breakfast (which is included in the rental price) or any of the dishes available from the extensive menu for lunch and dinner (you pay for the ingredients and then leave the rest up to the chef). Overall, a brilliant experience and highly recommended.

“Fantasic place, great servce”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We travelled to Galle with some friends for a chilled long weekend, we couldn’t have picked a better sport right in the heart of the old fort. This period house has a very alfresco feel to it. the standard of finish is very high the rooms are spacious and comfortable, the pool is inviting.

There was also 5 staff on hand to help with whatever we required, they cooked superb food, we chose to have a bbq evening and then the following night a sea food BBQ, both were lovely, well worth the trip to Galle.

Would recommend to any group, when you spread the cost it is surprising good value for money.

“Totaly recommend it !”

The villa is a unique and luxurious place to stay in Galle. A primary location within the old fort, a quietness which allows a complete rest, a very efficient staff (especially the chef, who cooks magnificent dinners, tasty and full of invention, served very nicely in your plate !).

A big thank you to the whole team (and to the manager Rob for his tips and his knowledge of Galle and where to go)
