“Nice room and good tuk-tuk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Stayed here for two nights in October. We had room 1 at the top of the main building.
The room was big and comfortable. AC, fan and TV (didn't check the channels). Good waterpreassure in the shower. If you need privacy in the bathroom, you will probably feel a little uncomfortable in the room we had. The wall between bath- and bedroom stops about one meter before the ceiling, and the door is "Wild West Saloon -style"
The guesthouse is situated bang in the middle of the fort.
Standard brekkie. Good resturant, although a bit pricy, on the other side of the road.
I would strongly recomend the tuk-tuk at the guesthouse. We used him on two different occations. The price was fair, and the driver is very helpful and not pushy.
This place is good value at 5000 rupies.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms before you decide. Some of the rooms was rather small.

We stayed at Frangipani Motel for a couple of nights in November and got a double room with fan. We didn't take the breakfast.

Plus :
- Very well located inside Galle Fort.
- Room was very clean and so was the big bathroom.
- Wifi worked correctly.
- Got a fair discount as we stayed more than one night and it was not yet the high season.

Minus :
- The room was quite dark with a big wall 2m far from the window, although not a big issue.

We didn't stay here overnight but a friend recommended it for lunch which was delicious, very fresh and very contemporary. Seafood ceviche, calamari and yellow fin tuna salad. Really really good and a great position on the ocean. The pool looked nice but it was raining so we didn't use it.

I was impressed with this place- one of the best rooms I stayed in during my 3 week trip in Sri Lanka in the Rs2000-3000 per night bracket. Modern, spotlessly clean and very central. Was able to negotiate better rate but could have been because was fairly low season.

one of the most expensive rooms during my trip (without breakfast included), but not the best (bit dark, cold water most of the times, aircon only if i've paid even more, staff was moderately friendly..)

breakfast was good, we also did a tour with one of the staff (and their tuktuk), which was nice to see some more of the surroundings of galle,

We stayed in this motel in August 2013 with the two of us. The room itself was not very clean. Still we had to pay 3500 rupees for a small bedroom without AC. Futhermore, the fan was not working properly. Not recommended.
