We LOVED Mama's Guest House and felt fortunately that we were able to get one of only two rooms, having no idea before we got there how small the hotel was. Most people go for the excellent food on the roof terrace. Our room was very large well furnished and clean, with a sitting area as well as the comfortable queen size bed. The bathroom, with a separate shower section, was spacious. Body scrub and shampoo sold downstairs were provided. There was a mosquito net around the bed as well as air conditioning and an overhead fan. No view from the room. (Their other room on the front of the building has a small furnished terrace that faces the street with no sitting area in the room itself. We liked our room better.) The bedrooms are one flight up. Two flights up is the terrace dining room with nice views and lovely flowering plants. The food, both breakfast and dinner, was excellent. We chose a Sri Lankan breakfast (roti with carmelized onion sambal and dahl) with excellent French press coffee and fruit juice. Mama teaches cooking classes and if you learn to cook what you eat in the restaurant, it's got to be worth it. Our only negative over the two nights we spent there was the 5 a.m. call to prayer from the nearby mosque. Other than that, you could not find a more pleasant place to stay within the walls. Service was friendly and courteous. Sure, there are fancier places in Galle, but you do feel like a special guest at Mama's.
