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...

This b&b was in a perfect location, right on the fort wall. Lovely view from the balcony and roof garden. Rooms clean and tidy . Food very good. Total privacy as the staff did not bother us at all except for breakfast service. Great value for money , good air conditioning. Would recommend. Xxx

A great place if liquor is not your only motivation :) Right at the beach, with the best view from the room, along with amazing hosts. After a long travel - flight to colombo, direct train to galle, and then walk to the hotel - it was the perfect place to sip a cup of coffee and enjoy the view...

Then we came back for an extra two weeks. If you have the time to sit on the balcony, watch life swirling past and soak in the stunning, horizon-wide views of the Indian Ocean... Rampart View (and Galle Fort) will work its magic on you. You breakfast overlooking the ocean. You watch sunsets from the rooftop terrace. You stay in...

Located by the rampart of the Dutch fort our upper floor room looked out to sea over the top of the ramparts. Great for viewing sunsets, bridal couples having photo shoots and the daytime influx of school parties and tourists bussed in from the West Coast resorts. Fear not its very quiet part from the 10.00 to 16.00 time with...

I spent four nights at the Rampart View Guest House. The people who run the place are extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I chose to buy the breakfast (not included in the cost of the room, but that was okay). It was 500 rupees and when I was given the choices, I said that what I would really prefer was...

I chose this guesthouse because of the location, and it was perfect. It's quite strange to step outside your room and onto your balcony and be at the same height as people walking along the ramparts! So it's not exactly private, but great for people watching. The room was very nice, the bathroom was well furnished, with a hot shower....

good location, very peaceful at night (apart from the ROAR of the ocean). comfortable, clean, largish room. the view from the balcony (expecially the part where they serve the enormous breakfasts) is lovely, with the sea only meters away. i didn't use A/C or fan at night, but slept with the windows open and that was cool enough, and listened...

Location-wise this guesthouse can't be beaten and if it I'd too hot to gout on an adventure you could sit on the balcony all day watching the world go by. it seems as though everyone comes here - to have a picnic with the family, to go to the beach for a swim, to while away the time waiting for...

This was the only 'guest house' that we stayed in during our tour of Sri Lanka, but it was one of the most pleasant stays during our few weeks on the island. We booked an extremely reasonably priced room, with air conditioning, mosquito nets, sea view and stunning view of the sunset. The bathroom looked almost brand new. The only...
