“Friendly and cosy place”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 via mobile

The place is small and quiet with clean comfortable rooms and there is a nice common balcony with sea view to hang out. The manager and the staff was super friendly. Good location and walking distance to all the sights in old town. All in all a great place to stay for a short visit to Galle.

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple

We had an excellent stay at the Seagreen Guesthouse in Galle. The guesthouse is in a great location, right across from the fort wall and walking distance from shops and restaurants. The room was spacious, clean and had access to the rooftop deck. Most importantly, the staff and the owner were fantastic. My boyfriend ended up with a chest infection and needed to see a Dr. We asked the owner for a referral, and he went over and above to take him to the dr. wait for him and drive him back to the guesthouse. Simply amazing hospitality. The restaurant next door also serves grey food - make sure you try the Sri Lankan breakfast!

Room Tip: Get the room on the top floor!

You cannot ask for more than a location which overlooks the sunset off the fortified walls beyond the horizon of the beautiful coastline, that is also quiet and tucked in the corner but still within the Fort! The room is spacious and you can get the Colonial feeling just staying in this :)

Loved the location of this small guesthouse which overlooked the sea, fort walls and a busy local cricket spot just across the road. It was a short walk to the cafés, gift shops and restaurants within the fort walls and not too far to walk out to the Galle Cricket ground and the busy shopping market area outside the walls. Naman, the owner, was always quick to respond to emails and confirm arrangements for our transfer from the airport. The Seagreen restaurant next door, run by Naman's brother and wife was small and unassuming but had excellent food and incredibly friendly service. Loved the Sri Lankan omelette for breakfast. There is a small kiosk just up the hill to buy bottles of water and super cheap ice blocks to help cool down. The rooms were quite appealing with polished concrete floors and white-washed walls, even though bathrooms were a tad dated. Air conditioning worked really well. Our girls loved the resident dog, Mr Bonnie, designated as head of security. Thanks to Naman, staff and family for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Our room at the back on the middle level was nice and quiet.

All the staff are super friendly, we called ahead and spoke with Naman to reserve a room in the guest house.

The location within Fort is great and there is a lovely view from the guest house overlooking the ocean.

Rooms are spacious and clean all with a/c and fan but we used neither as it was cool inside. Bathroom was clean and shower was nice and powerful although the shower floor was slippery when wet so take care!

Breakfast next door was fantastic. The hoppers were delicious and again the staff were very friendly and helpful.

In brief, Seagreen is an understated oasis of cool tranquility. Galle Fort provides and Seagreen in particular is a great location to recover from any of beautiful Sri Lanka's excesses of heat, humidity or traffic plus next door is Seagreen's sister restaurant which exceeded expectations! Not only was it an enjoyable evening meal on a pleasantly cool terrace but breakfast hoppers were fantastic. Nice.
