This is a small guest house/boutique hotel tucked down a small street in galle fort. Location wise it's near everything you could want. Definitely a positive staying in galle fort as just a shirt wander to shops and restaurants. Rooms very clean although relatively simple, bed very comfortable. Really good value.

Pros The house itself is filled with history and great architecture. It is inside the fort. Great service all around. Cons A bit pricey. The bed was so squeaky, it woke my husband and me up throughout the night. No street view. No pool. Mango House is situated inside the fort and a great location to just simply walk out... More

The Mango House is centrally located, you can easily walk around the city from here. It is very cozy but also a bit modern. The staff was kind, breakfast was delicious (just be careful with the monkeys! They might take a banana off your plate!) and the rooms were clean. Lots of space to sit in open areas, including a...

What an absolutely phenomenal place. The staff were exceptionally friendly and informative; providing lots of suggestions for activities, restaurants and things to see. Breakfast was beautiful, held in the lovely garden at the front of the property where we were lucky to be joined by monkeys. Location could not be better for exploring the fort. Faultless accommodation; with wifi, air... More

Beautiful hotel seccluded in a great location! Staff were incredibly nice! Hotel is stunning, beautifully designed for a design savvy family like us! Made us feel calm with the exact amount of luxury. If your not after a high rise hotel but want something a little more than a guest house then this is the place for you!

We had the most wonderful stay at Mango House. The staff were very attentive, friendly and helpful. Accommodation and grounds beautiful and clean. Breakfast was delicious, enjoyed under the varandah. Great location, would highly recommend and would definitely return if we find ourselves back in Galle.

A tastefully renovated Dutch Cinnamon factory is now home to this darling 7 room hotel. The garden is gorgeous and peaceful and the rooms are much the same, which four-poster beds and gauzy (but effective!) mosquito netting.

We are so happy to hear that your little boy is well and it wasn’t anything serious!
