Rampart View Guest House

Reviewed 27 January 2015

Sunset and sunrise from your balcony! Add to that a commanding view of the old Dutch Fort ramparts on the sea. There is nothing more you would need to look for in Galle Fort. And please do not miss the breakfast! It's fabulous! And do prefer the Sri Lankan breakfast! The owner of the place makes the breakfast for you herself and is served on the balcony overlooking the sea.

Rampart view is very good place to stay. Its in very good place right next to rampart and south coast.
Although the mosquito net was quite bad and we got few mosquito bites.

The running couple is very nice and helpful. We had a very good stay here.

Really cool location inside the fort with great view of the sea and the fort. Tried the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast which was really yummie (it was actually the only place we've been too that served real traditional breakfast), and we had it outside so we could enjoy the wonderful view.

Great old hotel with run of the mill food and a dated atmosphere. Take a look if you want to see what colonial resthouses used to look like! Quite rundown but charmingly so! It feels like it is as old as the fort itself!

We spent 3 wonderful nights and enjoyed our stay. The hosts were kind, charming and were able to accommodate the mobility issues of my mum by providing a room on the ground floor and also serving meals in their dining room. The location was perfect - so close to the ramparts and the ocean. In the mornings we watched the glorious sunrise from the balcony and at nights, the sunsets. Our rooms and bathrooms were clean and spacious and mosquito nets were provided. Highly recommend the breakfasts provided - delicious, authentic, home cooked Sri Lankan food. The hosts - Mr. & Mrs. Rauf and their son were always there to help us and we had many interesting conversations with them on various topics ranging from the history of the fort to gems. All in all, a great experience, highly recommend this very reasonably priced guest house.

Room Tip: Any of the upstairs room has access to the balcony with the gorgeous view of the ocean.
