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!
