Really nice place with perfect location inside the fort looking over the ocean from the terrace. Lovely lady that owns the place who's very helpful and kind. Good value for the money. Warmly recommended!

The Rampart View Guest House is located right next to the fort wall and you can sit and watch the sunset from the balcony - but never the less it is far more cozy and beautiful to walk on the wall and enjoy the local life there. The house has great potential, but the owners do not seem to have...

It is shocking to know the reveiw about this guest who has given 3 stars and also who has stayed for the 2nd day as well. This perticular room has a view of the sunset and when offering the guest the rest of the rooms we have, the choice is mostly for this. If it is a noisy air-condition and...

Totally met our expectations. Room had a great view for 'people watching' and lovely sea breeze. Location was a great base for day trips. Nice to walk back through the Fort each day. Mattress comfortable, hot water, a/c and fan working, good wifi. Hosts were extremely helpful and not intrusive. Communication prior to arrival was good. Lovely meal prepared for...

I kind of hate writing this review as I know it to be the best place to stay in the Fort. And I hope it doesn't change with the popularity a great review can bring, but YES, this place is the best place in the fort. One of the biggest reasons for returning to Galle was, we felt cheated because...

My wife and I arrived at Galle Fort from Mirissa via tuk2 and didn't make any reservations. We were greeted by Mrs Rauf and we were lucky enough that there was a room available. The views were amazing especially during sunrise and sunset. Special mention goes to Mr & Mrs Rauf for feeding us a delicious lunch before we left...
