Our room was on the ground floor with access to a little courtyard ( shared with one other room). Rooms above have a balcony. Breakfast is served on the front patio. There is...

Lovely linen and toiletries made of essential oils. Yummy breakfast. The hotel provided a really tranquil feel. Laid back and easy. The central location meant that...

We spent two nights at this charming hotel and loved it! Mango House is centrally located in the heart of the old fort within an easy walk to everywhere. The shady garden is a welcome retreat - a cool oasis after the heat. The decor is bright and eye catching adding to the ambience. The rooms are beautifully decorated. We...

With just seven rooms and perfectly situated in the old fort, this is a perfect place for exploring the historical town of Galle. Only breakfast is provided, but as there are many restaurants within close distance, this is no disadvantage. As so often in Sri Lanka, helpful and friendly staff.

We stayed here recently for our last 2 nights in Sri Lanka having travelled around with our 2 teenage children. The location in the old fort is superb. The garden is beautifully planned & maintained, fresh and welcoming. The entrance is stunning - the garden sort of blends into it. Fresh, bright, lots to look at and all thoroughly comfortable...

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...
