This is a wonderful old colonial building turned into a beautiful luxury hotel. It is small and secluded yet only a few minutes away from the old town of Galle. The staff are excellent being very friendly and attentive and the breakfast is top-notch. A great romantic getaway.

Lovely pool, attentive staff and just the majestic space to relax in ancient lounges and courtyards. Rooms are beautiful with high ceilings A/c and fan... More

I stay at many hotels, both business and pleasure and this was one of the best that I have come across. Very convenient location, large, comfortable rooms, simply but effectively furnished, an excellent bathroom and a private garden/terrace. Lots of dining and drinking options for a small hotel and huge flexibility in the timing and availability of food. This hotel... More
