The major plus is that the guest house is located in the centre of old Galle and is the cheapest option available within the old walled city. Normally I'd choos3 further away cheaper options but I had 2 nights here... half a day for Galle and half a day Unawatuna beach. If they called the place Leynbaan Rooms it'd be more appropriate. The name villa gives other ideas. I upgraded on arrival to a room with air-conditioning and hot water and own bathroom and so glad I did. Mosquito nets and the aircon was great. There are insects everywhere in Sri Lanka... best to just accept that. The guy who checked me in was friendly. I read some places that breakfast was included but it wasn't the case so I didn't take it. A good budget option for open minded travellers wanting to stay central galle.

We booked one night in this «villa» and I would never book it again. We paid for a room with balcony and got a room next to a shared balcony. The room was very small and the washroom smelled. At our arrival they offered free tea for the next morning but nobody was between 8 and 9 at the reception. The only good thing is the good location. Absolutely not recommended.

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).
