“above Guest house standards”
Reviewed 28 April 2011

One of the highlights in our holiday. lovely sea view rooms with balcony, good and clean hot water bathrooms, spotlessly clean and the tasteful Mrs.Khalid's residence is all ways kept immaculate. we stayed here four nights though most of the days were raining we never felt bored. the sea view balcony was great asset while we spent most of the rain flatted days by just lazing on this wonderful balcony, reading all day with plenty of teal/coffee and tasty home cooking. Khalid's is different from a normal guest house in sri lanka. its special and highly respected among the local community in Galle for its long standing reputation and being a institution in Galle. indeed this is an icon of Galle.

Room Tip: ask for sea view balcony

Mrs Khalid's is exactly what I want of a guest house - well positioned (in the Fort area, right by the sea walls), spotlessly clean, simply furnished, the owner provides the right degree of friendliness and privacy. The food was always excellent, the sheets crisp white cotton. Perhaps it is more to the taste of slightly older travellers as it specialises in serenity (and bans the consumption of alcohol on the premises).

Galle itself is charming - a beautiful World Heritage Site that is far from being a museum. It is lively, has good restaurants and cafes and tempting shopping. Plenty to see and do.

Fort Galle is a very enchanting and special place and staying at Mrs.Khalids just made my trip absolutely delightful! What a charming guesthouse! The rooms are spotless and cosy (I had other experiences during my trip, paying more.....). The manager is very friendly and helps you where he can, just ask and you`ll get good advice about tours around Galle. The service is great too, well what more does one want. It`s just the place to be!

I am not someone who likes luxurious vacations in expensive hotels, that's why I felt very good in the guest house of mrs. Khalid. My room was at the back of the guest house so very quiet, just right for one person, the room has his own bathroom with toilet. Early in the morning you make a walk along the sea over the 'ramp' . Mrs. Khalid makes good honest diners, not very fancy and she herself likes to get fresh fish early in the morning from the fishermen of Fort Galle. The servants are there when you need them so is mrs. Khalid.
As a woman alone I really can recommend the Guest house of mrs. Khalid.

Room Tip: the frontrooms have a splendid view over the sea.

I've stayed 4 times over about 10 years. The owners family and staff are attentive and helpful. Lata the cook is excellent and have confidence in the honesty of all. There's been nothing but assistance and good information given. I have made this hotel in Galle my base for visits to Sri Lanka and always feel that the visit is too short. My last visit in March/April was 3 weeks and once again felt regret on leaving.

Room Tip: Book when I'm not in Galle !

That was the second time I stayed at Mrs Khalid's Guest House in wonderful Galle. That time I stayed twice, 5 days and 2days, and both times were just like the first time wonderful.
Sabrik and his mother are really nice. But i guess the most important things are the rooms which are lovely, well decorated and absolutely spotless clean. I can only recommend it. The best quality priced rooms in Galle.
Thanks to you and your other Sabrik.

We lived in Sri Lanka for a couple of years and so had the chance to stay at Khalids more than once.
Its extremley good value, basic and clean rooms - and the bonus of staying in someone's house. If you get the chance have an evening meal the home made food delicious and very authentic ( we had many home made meals during our stay in Sri Lanka)
Book early to get the rooms with a balcony - not the place for you if you want all mod cons , but great for a more local experience
