Located just a few meters from the beach and in a convenient place to visit the city centre. We had the street-front room, quite hard to sleep after 7am. Wifi working, good breakfast and housekeepers are nice. Not recommended for more than 1 night

I would recommend this guesthouse because of its location and friendly hosts. The guesthouse is located within the walls of the Dutch fort and next to the old hospital, which contains several restaurants. The guesthouse is run by a welcoming family who serve a tasty breakfast.

Do be aware that the front door is locked at ten. This wasn't really a problem since most of the shops and restaurants in the fort have closed by this time.

There are good communal areas to relax in and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The bathroom was ok, but, as in most of Sri Lanka, not up to European standards. It could do with some updating. Also be aware that the local mosque's call to prayer may wake you up early in the morning.

Thenu Rest Guest House is in a very good location in Galle Fort. It is right next to the Old Dutch Hospital which is full of restaurants and shops. Also, it is only a short walk from the lighthouse, small beach and Fort.

The business is run by a friendly and helpful family who will accommodate you in any way that they can. The room we had was spacious, clean and had good AC with ceiling fan. The bed was extremely comfortable but because there are only net curtains, there is a slight lack of privacy.

The highlight of our stay here was the breakfast. It was cooked fresh to order, was very tasty and plentiful. One morning, we were even given a Sri Lankan breakfast which was much appreciated.

OK, the proviso. The family actually live in the accommodation and because of this, the door is locked at 10pm. If you are later than this, you have to ring the bell and someone will get up to let you in. However, we were late several times and it was never an issue for us but please bear this in mind.

Overall, a very good stay and reasonable value for money. I would recommend this place for people who do not want to stay out most of the night partying.
