The Sun House has great character and a real charm. It is, however, very tired and has definitely seen better days and desperate for some renovations. Food is really good, a great bar and really friendly staff do help but still can’t help feeling the place needs a bit of love.
Location: The hotel is in a secluded area up a hill approx 10-15min drive from Galle Fort depending on traffic but easy enough in a tuk tuk around 500-700 rupees (£2-£3) which the hotel can arrange for you or you can find outside sometimes. Facilities: The WiFi in the room…
Staying at the Sun House was sublime. The staff were friendly and gracious and cannot do enough for you. The breakfasts were generous and delicious and the surroundings super stylish with plenty of those vibrant Sri Lankan colours in the decor.
Place was superb.Really nice calm place with nice food, delicious food and nice friendly staff. We really love the environment and the indoor setting. All was positive. We will be back. Wish you all the best.
Wonderfully relaxing couple of days in this peaceful and beautiful old colonial house. Service was impeccable -friendly and professional. Excellent breakfast and the one dinner we had was sublime and catered to all tastes.
"Do not take the room near bar and kitchen. Take room near common living room"
"Find another hotel"
"As we were there for 5 days having a slightly bigger room helped."
"Try an Arrack Sours at the bar. The Sri Lankan breakfast (curry) is enough to last the whole day."
"Dumas and araliya both very good."
