We spent a few nights here and chose this place based on Tripadvisor reviews which were for the most part glowing. Indeed a lovely location overlooking the ramparts and ocean. Good breakfast too. The rooms are clean but a little tired. Bathroom is tiny. Well located for walking the old town, but it is noisy. Thousands of tourist, school children...

You can't beat the location for the price! Overlooking the fort wall and the ocean. Beautiful sunset views from the balcony and rooftop! The room was extremely clean and pleasant. Would have loved it if there had been a refrigerator. Breakfast was delicious....choice of Sri Lankan or American. The Internet was a bit slow. The owners were lovely people who...

The first thing I must tell you about this hotel is that it is tight - very tight. So, if you want a big room, a private balcony/verandah, etc. you can skip this right now. On balance though, it is a very clean and comfortable place. The whole place is kept spotlessly, the breakfast (which comes with the room tariff)...

Was looking forward to our 2 night stay here but we were a little disappointed, especially given the price. The 4 rooms are all at First Floor level, which is a bonus as it gives you views over the Fort walls to the sea. Having breakfast with that view was excellent. Unfortunately our room was quite small, but the bathroom...

A little expensive for Sri Lanka but a lovely room with views of the sunset over Galle. Sri Lankan breakfast was exceptionally delicious. Definitely recommend. Rooms are clean and comfortable, 5 minute walk to bus and train stations.

Friendly family run guesthouse with clean and spacious rooms. The sri Lankan breakfast was delicious and the hosts were knowledgeable and very helpful. The position next to the ramparts is incredible with amazing views, the perfect position for sunset views and a great little beach for swimming 100m away. Amazing value

Nice, affordable guesthouse that overlooked the walls of Galle Fort into the ocean. Slept three, delicious breakfast and fast wifi. Remember it is a "guest" house (the owners live downstairs), so it's a bit weathered, but gosh, one can't beat the value for a short stay.

The room was clean with little details such as a kettle with some coffee and tea that we didn't find in other places in Sri Lanka. The view is spectacular and it is very pleasant to sleep with the sound of the waves. The highlight of the stay was definitely the delicious Sri Lankan breakfast with hoppers and egg curry,...
