Seagreen Guesthouse

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 January 2014

This was my first hotel experience in Sri Lanka and what a wonderful experience it was!
I can only echo the excellent reviews this lovely guesthouse continues to receive.
Friendly, very helpful service including the very convenient restaurant next door!
I felt as though I was treated like a valued friend and I really can't wait to return.
Thankyou to Naman and his family for everything! B.Thomasson

There are alot of new properties in Galle fort now for travelers. Seagreen has one advantage in that the front of the property looks out across the green and ramparts to the sea. It has a first floor and second floor balcony with this view - although a road runs in front which may be noisy early morning (tuk tuks and suchlike!) That being said only two rooms have front facing windows (and so great views) - whereas the remaining rooms are at the rear or on the side and so probably quieter. A/C works well and is not noisy. Polyester sheets :-(

The rooms are plain but functional with nice polished concrete floors (as are common in Sri Lanka). There is no restaurant in the house but there is a restaurant next door, and of course plenty of places in Galle fort.

Good enough

Room Tip: "Clippenburg bastion" room is top floor at the back of the guest house - works well

Really lovely owners and accommodating staff. Rooms are clean,air conditioned, spacious, and colourful. Great location by the wall of the fort next to a bustling girls school. Tiny bit noisy but exciting town life

I stayed here for three nights to recover from jet lag after flying from canada to Sri Lanka. The guesthouse is perfectly located in Galle Fort and my room had a lovely balcony overlooking the sea. The room was clean and bathrooms were excellent. The price was right for staying in the Fort. Recommended for budget travellers who enjoy little extra touches. Owner Naman was very hospitable and helpful.

We stayed for 2 nights in January and couldn't speak highly enough - Naman and Meike were wonderful. The room was really homely and the staff were so helpful. The location in Galle Fort was perfect. Also highly recommended Naman's brother's restaurant next door - the best fish we ate in a month in Sri Lanka. Such great value for money.

My friend Jake and I stayed here for 3 nights during which time we had a wonderful stay. Not only is the guesthouse pretty, clean, comfortable and great value with a great rooftop garden view to watch the sunset and local boys playing cricket, the people are so lovely. Naman is a great host, he went above and beyond to make our stay and trip to Galle a fantastic and memorable one. Ask him anything - as a native to Galle Fort, he pretty much knows everything and everyone!
The boys who work at the guesthouse are also friendly, eager to please and kind, the restaurant is excellent and the egg hoppers are sooooo good!
I would highly recommend staying here - I will be definitely be back.

Room Tip: We stayed in the twin room on the top floor which was large and quiet.
