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,...

We came here in December and stayed for two nights. Rome are ok, with fans and a/c despite the mosquito nets have some holes. The staff is totally unfriendly and a bit rude: they didn't help us with the luggage and when we asked for it they showed us a scorn face. Also for check out, supposed at 10.30 am,...

Galle is an interesting place in general. You really have to keep your eyes open because everyone has a gig to hustle or something to sell... People in general are kind, but inside the Fort, everyone is selling something. We arrive and the place looks good from the street. It's got about 3 stories with nice balconies and a well...

We were offered this family run hotel after our booking at Bara Beach fell through. Thank goodness our van driver was able to get us in . The family were so understanding at accommodating 3 x couples at such short notice.

Don't go to this Motel. We had a misundersanding about the payment and the people there were not willing to cooperate to solve the problem! We assume they are cheating. Moreover the rooms we had were dark, stuffy and very small. The towels thin and old, same for the matress.

We arrived at this place with a booking for a deluxe room paid in full, however the owner had no record of this and after some time put us into a basic room (dark and dingy). Upon our request we asked to be moved to a deluxe room which we had pre-paid for, we got moved to another basic room....

This hotel has lots of charm. The entrance is very welcoming with a lovely indoor garden and spacious interior. The rooms are very basic as is the breakfast but ok for the price. The location is great to have a stroll around Fort Galle and very close to the cricket stadium. The people however are not very friendly and helpful,...

Stayed here for 2 nights and this place offers reasonable comfort and value. Shares many of the shortcomings of hotels in SL generally: poor plumbing, frequent power outages etc. We had family room at top of building, A/c was good, wifi reasonable and nice balcony. They offer a laundry service but very expensive, we went elsewhere. Good location right in...

We stayed 2 nights, the room had a good size, A/C and hot water shower were good. We could have done with a 2nd sheet and a working wifi connection in the room. Price was competitive for off-season, we negotiated Sri Lankan breakfast included in the rate. The owners are not very chatty, so if you prefer home stay then...

A Sri Lakan family stays here and they let out a few rooms on the second floor. We negotiated with them and got a room for 3000 sri lankan rupees and breakfast for an extra 500. Breakfast was basic (tea/ coffee, fruit, one egg and toast). Room was clean. A/C wasn't working well so it took a while to cool...
