This guest house is awesome, located right in the heart of Galle Fort. The family who run the place are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to help out. The breakfast is delicious.

The owners are very friendly and helpful. Well located and close to the sea (about 50 meters). Wifi is not so good. There is no hot water, although the owner said there will be. All in all, good value for the money (3000 rupees) per night for a couple.

Spent one day and enjoeyd our Galle Fort stay. The whole interior was suprisingly quite cooler airier than expexted. Staff is friendly and serves big relatively rich breakfat. No problem with room or anything else. Close to the lighthouse which is wonderful on sunset. Whole fort area is magic.

Enjoyed my short stay here. The room was comfortable, hot water on demand and wifi access good. The location, in the Fort, just across from the shoreline and was close to restaurants, shops, etc. I enjoyed talking to the family and playing with Blackie, their little dachshund, and appreciated the restaurant suggestions.

The rooms are a good size, clean and the owner is very nice. As long as you don't want anything more than basic you will be more than happy here. The location is great - it's within the fort area and just a couple minutes walk from all the restaurants.
