Stayed for 1 night here. Room was clean and comfortable. Was quiet enough to get a good night's sleep and had a really good mattress. Location is excellent inside the fort. Shower was a bit of a dribble and mozi net needs a repair.

Not a very helpful family. For example: After two weeks in Sri Lanka this was the first hotel where we had to carry our luggage to our room by ourselves. Besides they ask a lot of money (8500) for a very simple room without breakfast. We decided to go to Galle lastminute, but while walking through the city we have...

this place is a nice house with nice rooms but very badly overpriced. The owners seem to be so spoiled by all the good reviews in the guide books, they doubled their original prices and are not very nice to their guests. The breakfast is served in the garden (which is nice) but it takes ages and is pretty bad....

Some of the rooms were nice, some weren't. The showers were cold and the heater for the water was out of reach. The bathrooms facilities seemed pretty old. I have never waited for a breakfast that long in my life (consisting of egg and toast)!! There was a missunderstanding about the rates for our two rooms, otherwise we wouldn't have...

We stayed here one night and found the owner to be polite and well-informed, the staff polite and the establishment good value. Unfortunately the wifi didn't work well in the room and we needed to go downstairs to access the wifi. The room was comfortable and clean albeit very basic. It had air conditioning and a fan with only cold...

When I walked in I rated it 4 but by the time we left it felt like more of a 3. Large room on top floor with dark wood furnishings, nice breeze and roof top views had some charm. Overall, the place was generally clean, but the bathroom was dank and unkempt (and home to at least two cockroaches) and,...

We came here in December and stayed for two nights. Rome are ok, with fans and a/c despite the mosquito nets have some holes. The staff is totally unfriendly and a bit rude: they didn't help us with the luggage and when we asked for it they showed us a scorn face. Also for check out, supposed at 10.30 am,...

Galle is an interesting place in general. You really have to keep your eyes open because everyone has a gig to hustle or something to sell... People in general are kind, but inside the Fort, everyone is selling something. We arrive and the place looks good from the street. It's got about 3 stories with nice balconies and a well...

We were offered this family run hotel after our booking at Bara Beach fell through. Thank goodness our van driver was able to get us in . The family were so understanding at accommodating 3 x couples at such short notice.

Don't go to this Motel. We had a misundersanding about the payment and the people there were not willing to cooperate to solve the problem! We assume they are cheating. Moreover the rooms we had were dark, stuffy and very small. The towels thin and old, same for the matress.
