Made a reservation with this guest house 2 months ago - called today only to find out that they have rented out my room to someone else! No apologies or alternatives from the owner to rectify this situation. Worst place I've booked in Sri Lanka.

Breakfast our Sri Lankan breakfast was ordered but forgotten the replacement was poor (we were blamed for giving our order to the waiter.!) We got electric shccks from the...

Having just stayed there, I have just re read some of the reviews here on TA and now understand why some are some positive and others aren't. The reason being is that in this place, not all rooms are equal. The room I stayed in (room 5) is fairly dire. Whereas, I looked in room 7 (the doors of the...

Simple family run guest house just round the corner from Pedlar St. Clean and comfortable bedroom, well furnished with fairly basic shower room. Good breakfast on street terrace -- a good place to watch wedding photo shoots! Mistress of the house pleasantly direct!!!

I would recommend this guesthouse because of its location and friendly hosts. The guesthouse is located within the walls of the Dutch fort and next to the old hospital, which contains several restaurants. The guesthouse is run by a welcoming family who serve a tasty breakfast. Do be aware that the front door is locked at ten. This wasn't really...

Thenu Rest Guest House is in a very good location in Galle Fort. It is right next to the Old Dutch Hospital which is full of restaurants and shops. Also, it is only a short walk from the lighthouse, small beach and Fort. The business is run by a friendly and helpful family who will accommodate you in any way...

The rooms were basic but very clean and spacious. The location is amazing and surrounded by loads of good restaurants. The family that runs the place is lovely and the breakfasts are sensational and huge. This is a really good value for money place & gives you a little insight to Sri Lankan hospitality!

“Ask to have a look at the available rooms and choose the one you like. The one upstairs at the front is great as you can sit out having breakfast, lunch or dinner and watch the locals and tourists passing by as well as a view of the ocean.”
