We had to wait for our room to be ready. we waited 45 minutes for a room that was ready all the time. staff is working very much inward focussed, what they need to do goes first, then they attend to the customer. This location to me is a normal living house, where they rent out rooms. Our room was...

It seems like this might be a big house that is converted to a hotel, and it's probably family-owned. We stayed here because the other hotel cancelled our reservation. The room we stayed in pretty spacious, the toilet is a long corridor with no shower curtains so you might splash some water on the toilet next to it. The weather...

Kandy and her team provide a very well run and imaculately clean guest house at very reasonable prices. Centrally located in a nice quiet street, the ideal place to stay. Rooms are spacious and airy with free wi fi, air conditioning, and food is available if required.

Clean floors, because they mop all the time, they make you take off your shoes, but everything else is so dirty! Towels smell bad, so many mosquitos, the bedsheets are dirty, the breakfast is questionable, i have to words to describe how i couldn't touch anything ! other than that, the people are so nice! It was my first hotel...

Stayed for 1 night here. Room was clean and comfortable. Was quiet enough to get a good night's sleep and had a really good mattress. Location is excellent inside the fort. Shower was a bit of a dribble and mozi net needs a repair.

Not a very helpful family. For example: After two weeks in Sri Lanka this was the first hotel where we had to carry our luggage to our room by ourselves. Besides they ask a lot of money (8500) for a very simple room without breakfast. We decided to go to Galle lastminute, but while walking through the city we have...

this place is a nice house with nice rooms but very badly overpriced. The owners seem to be so spoiled by all the good reviews in the guide books, they doubled their original prices and are not very nice to their guests. The breakfast is served in the garden (which is nice) but it takes ages and is pretty bad....

Some of the rooms were nice, some weren't. The showers were cold and the heater for the water was out of reach. The bathrooms facilities seemed pretty old. I have never waited for a breakfast that long in my life (consisting of egg and toast)!! There was a missunderstanding about the rates for our two rooms, otherwise we wouldn't have...

We stayed here one night and found the owner to be polite and well-informed, the staff polite and the establishment good value. Unfortunately the wifi didn't work well in the room and we needed to go downstairs to access the wifi. The room was comfortable and clean albeit very basic. It had air conditioning and a fan with only cold...

When I walked in I rated it 4 but by the time we left it felt like more of a 3. Large room on top floor with dark wood furnishings, nice breeze and roof top views had some charm. Overall, the place was generally clean, but the bathroom was dank and unkempt (and home to at least two cockroaches) and,...
