We arrived at Pedlar 62 Guest House following an unanswered email asking about reservations but they luckily had rooms available - with fan or a/c, we took the fan option.

The room was a good size, very clean and basic with mosquito net which covered the bed well and did not have any holes thankfully! The guest house does not have Wifi.

The bathroom was a 'wet room' style affair, also clean and perfectly adequate.

We felt the fan option perhaps was the wrong choice in the end, the room was very hot so we would suggest the slightly more expensive a/c option to future travellers.

Couldn't comment on breakfast as didn't take.

Overall a well positioned place to stay to visit the Fort, would happily stay again and recommend to others.

I booked for five nights after reading reviews here and wasn't disappointed. Being a solo traveller, I found the smaller back room to be perfect. The way Ravi's done the place up - his attention to detail in everything from floor to furniture - is immaculate. The four-poster was super comfy and bathroom spotless. The WiFi works a treat and breakfast on the front balcony overlooking the street was just the right start to the day. The larger AC rooms seemed wonderful for couples. Everything's quite new and I can only imagine how much more enticing the place will be once the rooftop lounge is ready. Pedlar62 is located pretty much bang in the centre of the fort and has the added charm of Ravi's folks living downstairs - some of the friendliest, kindest, most helpful people you'll ever meet. Ravi's a laugh too and will go out of his way to ensure everything's tops. He does a sterling job. This classy little guest house is a prime reason Galle turned out to be a great vacation. Absolutely recommended.

We had a lovely stay at the pedlars. The main selling point is the owner and his family who create a warm/friendly atmosphere. The room was very clean and spacious. The bed is also worth a mention having a very comfortable mattress. Excellent location in the centre of Galle. You have your breakfast on the balcony overlooking the street which is very pleasant. On one day we had a Sri Lankan breakfast which was a real treat. Although the guesthouse does not have a bar/restaurant there are many good options within a couple of minutes walk away. Overall we would certainly recommend the pedlars and it represents good value for money. Many people seem to visit Galle just for the day but we happily spent 3 nights/2 days there.

Perfect location.
Perfect rooms.
Perfect decor.
Perfect city.

Seriously, I feel in love with this guesthouse immediately. Its practically brand new so its extremely clean. The AC works well, the bed was so comfortable and the room was huge. Some other positives: The owner checked on us each day to make sure all was well. There are two doors to open at night if safety is a concern.
The only drawback was that the woman next door started chopping firewood at 6am. It only lasted 10 minutes but I'm a pretty light sleeper.

My partner and I stayed at Pedlar62 in June 2012. We loved it. Ravi and his family made us feel most welcome, very comfortable accomadation, excellent service and a lovely location for breakfast looking over the street (not that it's that busy!). Brilliant value, good quality, fair price.

Pedlar62 is a lovely place to say right in the centre of the fort. Everything is just a short walk away ,resturants shops and the fort walls. Ravi and his parents make you feel at home the moment you walk in and are very helpful with any questions you have. The rooms are lovely and very clean with big 4 poster beds, white walls, timber furniture and polished concrete floors. 2 have AC and 2 fans. The bathrooms are tiled and are 'wet room' style with hot water showers. Breakfast is extra but well worth it as its huge, served on the front balcony overlooking pedlar st and either western or sri lankan, It also has free WiFi. I walked in off the street and got a room for the same price as being offered at Frangipani guest house just down the street and that room was tiny with only 1 window high up on the wall so it felt like a prison cell Can't recomend this place enough and wish Ravi and his family all the best for the future.
