“A most memorable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

I am a senior solo traveller and I arranged for Naman to meet me at Colombo Airport. I AI had a very enjoyable 3 hour trip down with lots of chat and being given useful information.
I was delighted with my very spacious room on the rooftop. Naman took my mobile phone away and got an SL SIM card fitted. After I left he phoned me during my travels to check that I was OK.
Where would you get service like that. I loved my meals next door with Namans brother Channa being the perfect host and his wife doing the delicious cooking.
All in all a great place to stay in Galle Fort. I will be back on my next trip.

As a family of 4 with two teenage girls we had the most memorable stay in the top rooms at the Seagreen Guesthouse. Our girls got engaged in playing cricket across the street with a bunch of local kids and some high school students on a field trip. Rooms are clean, quiet and pretty with AC and fan. Naman and Maike are helpfull and very experienced as guides and hosts, the boys working for them sweet, kind and helpfull as well. We stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the Fort as well as the new town of Galle + a day trip to Mirissa and one to Unawatuna. Lots of birds to watch from the roof terrasse if you are a birder. Breakfast next door is also the best experienced in Sri Lanka. We will be back :-)

Room Tip: All the 5 rooms seem lovely and both floors have terrasses.

Clean and good value guesthouse with a homely atmosphere and friendly hosts and staff. The spacious and clean bathrooms are fittet with really big showerheads. The view from the balcony over the ranmparts and the park is outstanding. You often get the chance to see locals play a game of cricket. I can only recommend the restaurant for a hearty local breakfast of hoppas with dhal.

If you go to Galle (and you should!), book a room at Seagreen Guesthouse - you won't regret. The rooms are spacious and spotless clean, the location couldn't be better, the rooftop terrace in the sunset must be invented to create big smiles on people's faces. We simple loved this place!

Lovely guesthouse in Galle Fort. Owners and staff are welcoming, wonderful and very helpful. Beautiful view from rooftop deck to see sunset with a beer. Definitely recommend. Best room in Sri Lanka so far and a great value.

Had a 4 day stay here. We received a lovely welcome from Maike and Naman and of course Mr Bonnie the "security" dog. The location of Seagreen is just perfect on the edge of Galle Fort overlooking grassy space, the ramparts and the sea. Our room had a terrace ideal for evening drinks but also we had access to the roof terrace which would be even better for sundowners. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean if a little short on clothes hanging space.
Throughout our stay, our hosts were great ; full of help and advice and friendly chat. Altogether an excellent visit to Galle in a perfect Guest House. Many thanks.

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.
