“Excellent value”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2014 via mobile

The proprietors are charming and friendly, the staff are friendly and efficient, the location inside the fort overlooking the informal cricket matches is good, the next door restaurant of the proprietors brother is excellent. Suited us to a tee

Stayed February 2014, travelled as a couple

This must be the best value for money in Galle. But it is also a great place to stay. Big rooms, clean and tidy, great setting watching the boys play cricket and well located. It's a 2 minute scroll to everything. Plus really good food next door.

A group of three married couples we stayed here for two nights whilst on a tour organise by Shangri Lanka Villa.

A friendly welcome from Naman led us to three comfortable and clean air conditioned rooms.
Beds are very comfortable and the showers hot. We ate at the restaurant next door. The guest house benefits from a wonderful position overlooking the ramparts.
We were fascinated to sit on the balcony in the evening watching the lads playing cricket. We were woken the next morning with the sound of Auld Lang Syne being played by a school band. We spent two hours over breakfast watching at least two hundred girls practising marching (with the guidance of the army), in preparation for Independence Day. A wonderful sight.

We spent a month n Sri Lanka and absolutely loved it - everywhere we stayed we experienced such warm hospitality and the standard of accommodation for our budget was incredible. Seagreen really stood out though - the rooms were lovely, stylish and spotless, with THE most comfortable beds. The view from the top balcony was priceless - watching the sun set over the Galle Fort walls while local kids played cricket on the green was quintessential Sri Lanka magic. The best thing about Seagreen by far however is the people - Naman and his charming staff are so helpful and friendly and fun to hang out with, and his brother Chana and his wife who run the restaurant attached looked after us like old friends.They took especially great care of my nine year old son. The food was delicious - best dhal in all of Sri Lanka, and the whole fish and jumbo prawns are to die for. We felt as though we had struck gold, and stayed two nights longer than we had planned. Cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Room Tip: We had two rooms and both were gorgeous.

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
