We were very impressed as we entered this beautiful building situated in the heart of the historic Old Fort. The central garden and kitchen area all very nice and available for use by guests.

Anushka and the team gave us a very warm welcome and our family room had everything we needed. Our bathroom was just outside our room but is was for our private use and even had hot showers which was unexpected and a bonus.

Everything was spotlessly clean.

We didn't eat here but could have pre ordered. As there are so many fab places to eat;especially breakfast at House of Badreen Guesthouse (turn left out of the door and its towards the Fort Wall on the righthand side); dinner at Lucky Fort (1 minute walk away and a MUST) and Indian Hut on Rampart street. Pilgrims Bar also on rampart street good for a late night drink as everything else is closed before or closes at 10pm.

Thank you for a lovely stay Anushka

We stayed there for 5 nights and enjoyed it. Staff were very nice and helpful. Rooms were a little small and a little hot. Mossies were also a problem and we used coils to keep them out. The house is lovely open with a central garden. No breaky but excellent peddlars cafe across the street for food and great coffee....and excellent wifi. Comfortable chill areas that were cool during the day. Staff eager to give information re local history etc. we enjoyed our stay.

A good, clean, honest place to stay right in the centre of Galle Fort. They have not long opened. We had a nice en-suite bathroom, but no view on to the road. The interior courtyard sitting area is nice.

We stayed here for three nights during our trip through Sri Lanka. The place is clean and tidy and the room was attached to a patio. It was great to sit at the patio during the afternoon when it was too hot to be outside and just relax and enjoy the silence. The people working here where very friendly and helpfull. When we told them about the mosquitos they instantly put coils in front of the room to keep the mosquitos away. They offer laundryservice at a low price.

Stayed here one night. Lovely location. Only cold water in the room but really not a big problem with the heat in Galle. Wifi was good. Nice but kind of slow staff. Waited a small eternity for breakfast which was not anything special. Did not eat dinner here so do not know how that was. Would stay here again.

We stayed for 3 nights in Travelers tree and would recommend it if you are looking for a good quality guesthouse. Very beautiful common areas and we had a large and spacious room. Great location for reasonable price. Clean rooms and we highly recommend to try Sri Lankan breakfast, which is served by the helpful and nice staff. Well working wifi, which is rare in Sri Lanka!
