We found Khalid's having left another guest house which we had booked online and could not accept. Khalid's is in another league, while still providing good value for money. We had a first-floor room at the back of the old place, with a large balcony overlooking the roofs of Galle, a large bedroom with four-poster style mosquito netting, efficient fan...

We had an unpleasant stay at khalids guesthouse - we were put in the new wing which has just been redone. It was totally charmless - or worse - missing basic things like curtains and bathmats (its early days so these might go in over the next few weeks), but generally seemed badly planned: air-conditioning where the vent ended in...

My friend & I visited Galle in Dec'10. It was our first night in Sri Lanka & we were thrilled at this lovely place. It is right in the heart of Galle Fort area - walking distance from just about everything worth visiting. Our 1st floor room overlooked Pedlar's Street and even a slice of the ocean. Rooms are spacious,...

We were travelling to Sri Lanka in December/January and, because it is really busy at that time of year, booked far in advance (in August). We booked Mrs. Khalid's through hostelworld.com. Everything seemed great from the reviews and from our (MULTIPLE) email contacts with the staff. When we got to Galle, however, we found that the guest house was closed...

This is a colonial style building with wooden floors and beds. Don't listen to the Lonely Planet - the genial manager, Sabri, didn't mind when we came home at 4am in the morning on New Year's Eve (2010). We missed breakfast the next day,  but he whisked up a tasty brunch for us at 3pm. The location of the Guest House is great,...

Home from home - very friendly staff, excellent breakfast, clean and large room, comfortable bed, quiet, good position in Galle near the outer sea wall. Mrs Khalid's son kindly allowed us to use his computer and internet connection whenever required. We also employed the driver to take us back to the airport - well worth while, quick,cheap. safe and comfortable.

I've stayed at Mrs. Khalid's five or six different times in the past two years. I've stayed there alone, I've stayed there with spouse and teenagers. It's perfect: clean, bright, quiet, easy. Meals are fun and delicious. I've met many fellow guests there who are also really delightful people. Mrs. Khalid is a sweetheart, her son is very pleasant and...

Mrs Khalid's is exactly what I want of a guest house - well positioned (in the Fort area, right by the sea walls), spotlessly clean, simply furnished, the owner provides the right degree of friendliness and privacy. The food was always excellent, the sheets crisp white cotton. Perhaps it is more to the taste of slightly older travellers as it...

Fort Galle is a very enchanting and special place and staying at Mrs.Khalids just made my trip absolutely delightful! What a charming guesthouse! The rooms are spotless and cosy (I had other experiences during my trip, paying more.....). The manager is very friendly and helps you where he can, just ask and you`ll get good advice about tours around Galle....
