I stayed for two nights at The Dutch House while attending a wedding in Galle. It was 12 years since I had stayed here last - just after the 2004 Tsunami. Nothing has change with The Dutch House - happily. Geoffrey Dobbs and his friendly helpful but unobtrusive staff make you very welcome - and the rooms themselves are spacious, thoughtfully furnished with heritage in mind - a joy to relax in. I was lucky enough to stay in the 'Ballroom' which as it's name suggests is especially roomy - my ideal bedroom ! All rooms have a bath and shower - what better than to linger in a Dutch heritage bath! The food is beautifully prepared - and breakfast can be served outside your room whenever you awake - a great help the morning after a wedding party! A well situated swimming pool which you can swim lengths in or just relax - quite sufficient to meet the needs of guests staring in the three guest rooms in The Dutch House . Croquet is also available and there is plenty of reading material available in each room. The serenic Sun House - also owned by Geoffrey - is across the road - and Dinner is served there rather than The Dutch House . Galle Fort is 5 minutes away by tuk tuk for Rupees 350. If you want to stay somewhere exceptional come to The Dutch House - you will not want to leave!
