REVIEWS

“Fantastic stay” – Date of stay: March 2022

“We booked the entire hotel for the 6 of us & took up the three beautiful rooms. The hotel is such an impressive building. There is loads of space and it is beautifully decorated. It’s location is perfect, it is within the fort right across from the beach & a stone throw away to any cafes, bars, shops and restaurants. The pool is also divine.

The staff were incredible. There were at least 3 members of staff on hand at all times, and they couldn’t do enough for us.

We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel, both were delicious. For dinner we asked for a selection of curries which we could not fault. Somehow they managed to whip it up during a power cut (Galle as has a few power cuts). The table was set outside and where we dined on the terrace, it was really special. For breakfast we had fruit platters, waffles, pancakes and eggs with bacon etc, cooked however we liked. The food was plentiful and delicious.

Two of us needed covid tests to get back to Australia. The hotel organised this very quickly for us, they called a doctor who came to the hotel at 4.30pm and had sent us the results by 8am the next day. So easy & painless.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. I would recommend this beautiful historic house to anyone.”

“Incredible stay at the House with amazing service” – Date of stay: February 2020

“Beautiful historical building, incredible view of the frangipani tree from our deck and bath, and incredibly kind and attentive service. I would like to personally thank Mailndu for his above and beyond service and for making our stay an unforgettable one. We will definitely be back, this time with our families so we can rent out the full house!”

“Oasis” – Date of stay: February 2020

“This historic house in the centre of Galle is a little oasis away from the heat of the fort. The period furnishings and decor are outstanding you feel like you are stepping back in time. Situated very centrally you are within walking distance of everything you want to do within the fort and you are positioned in just the right place to watch the sunset from the walls. There are only three rooms – ours was the Ginger Suite. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom very spacious with stone bath and shower overhead. Don’t think there was a plug for the bath so you probably can’t use it. Beautiful upstairs balcony overlooking the frangipani tree in the courtyard. Manager Malindu was very attentive and always happy to help. He offered to post our postcards for us as post office not open on weekend. Very clean and breakfast good. Enjoyed the pool after our sightseeing although we did get quite a few insect bites – probably attracted to the moisture and the greenery. Would recommend this small hotel.”
