A beautiful boutique hotel under the shade of a mango tree creates a cool oasis from the hot surroundings within Galle fort. Perfect location in the middle of the fort close to restaurants and retail. Friendly service and a great place to have a cold drink after retiring from a long day of exploring.

This hotel is situated within Galle Fort and is an excellent base to explore the fort, we only stayed for one night but the check in was simple and easy and allowed us to go and see the rest of the local area. There are a number of shops and restaurants around the hotel which is great to get some...

This was our base in Galle for 2 nights. The location could not be any better - less than 5 minutes walk to shops, cafes and restaurants. I loved the decor with splashes of vibrant colours and the colonial feel of the guesthouse. We initially booked the basic double room but was upgraded to the courtyard room free of charge...

Conveniently located within the fort, and with a very yummy choice of breakfasts. I don't really agree with other reviews that said it isn't really a hotel. There was a manager constantly on duty and we never felt that we were left to our own devices. We had the family room and did feel like we were the ones making...

You can be sure of a very warm welcome and attentive service - especially if Ravindhu is on duty. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Mango House describes itself as a boutique hotel and it is certainly very different from the impersonal approach of larger hotel chains or more established, stuffy venues elsewhere in the Fort. It is small...
