Pedlar62 Guest House
Ranked #7 of 146 Galle B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 21, 2012

I've stayed three days at Pedlar 62 and can honestly say I'm sad to leave. Ravi, the owner, has started in business quite recently with a firm idea of how he wants his establishment to be. He has worked in good hotels, so has a good idea of what's expected.
His guest house isn't super-luxury; if you want that you'd find a boutique hotel (at boutique hotel prices). Ravi's rates aren't the cheapest, but the house is very clean and comfortable, simply but tastefully furnished. All the rooms have en-suite wetroom style bathrooms with both hot and cold showers.
Some rooms are air-conditioned and some just ceiling fans. Personally I'm quite happy with the fans, but it's your choice.
The location is fine on Pedlar Street in the lovely Galle Fort. There is a couple of decent cafe/restaurants within a very short walking distance, though you can be anywhere in the Fort within a 10 minute walk anyway. Turning either left or right when leaving the guesthouse brings you to the old fort ramparts overlooking the sea within two minutes walk from the front door. It can be a little noisy first thing when the children are going to school but apart from that it's quite good, with light traffic, mostly scooters and tuk tuks.
You will find Ravi a very helpful and hospitable host, quite happy to organise a tuk tuk or help when you need it. Oh, and there's WiFi!
Thoroughly recommended.

Room Tip: Just choose AC or non AC. The house is too small to make much difference where noise is concerned, b...

We stayed at Pedlar62 for three nights in mid August 2012. We decided to stay there after we had seen about 10 guests houses in the Old Town of Galle and Pedlar62 was definitely the most charming one. Located in the middle of the Old Town the whole building was very clean and very elegantly furnished. We stayed in the back room in the first floor, which by the time we were there had not the four-poster bed and was not so big and airy as those two other ones, and yet it was still amazing! The bathroom was super clean, with hot water and shower with great flow of water (based on our experience very rare in Sri Lanka). There was also cute small balcony towards the side alley (with huge roller curtain in case you do not want to be disturb by light or neighbours).
Most important about Pedlar62 is yet not the building itself but the most friendly and sociable owner Ravi and his parents. It was always very pleasant to come back to the guest house seeing Mr. Sanjeewa Senior chatting at the front porch with his friends or wife.
We would highly recommend the place to stay till it keeps the family and intimate atmosphere (maybe it keeps it forever, but one can never know).
Don't be shy and ask Ravi for traditional Sri Lanka's dinner - the restaurant which he planned on the flat roof is still in state of preparation but the long front balcony is ideal for dining as well!

Room Tip: Ik hoorde dat er kamers waren zonder airco, vraag hier naar omdat het warm is anders.
