Leynbaan Villa & Fish Spa
Ranked #73 of 168 Speciality Lodging in Galle
Reviewed 15 November 2016

We stayed for a night @ Leynbaan Villa which is situated less than 100 meters away from Galle Fort. Situated on Leyn Baan Street, the location is good enough for someone who'd like to spend their day strolling around the old dutch settlements. Its a family run place and we were well looked after by the staff . The room was simple and clean with basic amenities, opening to a balcony that looks across the narrow street. They run a restaurant diagonally opposite to the fort and we enjoyed our meal there. Inexpensive, centrally located, free wifi, clean rooms, friendly staff :) glad we chose to stay here!

Room Tip: Choose the room with the balcony

I stayed here for two nights as a solo female budget traveller and it was the nicest place I've stayed in Sri Lanka so far. It's family run and the owners are kind, helpful and friendly. I felt really safe and I was very well looked after, offered fresh cinnamon tea and help with train times. The whole place felt warm and friendly, and they burned incense which smelled gorgeous. My room was a good size, really clean and comfortable with A/C and hot shower and clean mosquito net, plus a private balcony. Really great value for money.

The location is also absolutely perfect, right in the heart of the fort. You can walk everywhere and it's quite well lit at night.

Would definitely recommend.

Unexpected stay at this hotel since we were double booked elsewhere. We were not expecting to stay behind a fish spa and jewellery shop but we were pleasantly surprised and found this quite quaint!
Staff were lovely and helped us with our air-con and shower problems (our own stupidity...) without any bother, and got up to let us in when we returned after 10pm!
The room was clean and comfortable with mosquito nets, wifi and air-con.
Location was great, within the fort and close to lighthouse beach.
On our day of departure the staff looked after our bags all day.
Can't fault it - but don't expect more than your room for amenities (which wasn't a problem for us).

Guesthouse in the heart of Galle Fort, so the location is great!
It's cheap and it has all the basics but our room didn't have any window!
The staff is nice but not very helpful. We asked a few questions like where to go swimming or where to rent a bike. They didn't know and didn't care. So if you are on a budget that's fine but don't expect a comfy bed or a nice hotel.
The free wifi stopped working after midnight.
Warning: they have a curfew at 10pm and close the main door so you can't go for a late dinner or drinks!

Room Tip: Avoid the room on the ground floor as it didn't have a window

Very nice place and great people. Clean room, nice bathroom and a great balcony in a quiet area right in the fort district. And all this for a real fair price (about $15). I will definitely talk about it and strongly recommend it.
