We stayed here for 2 nights in April 2015. The hotel is in a great location across from the old Hospital where there are nice restaurants and bars. The rooms have free wifi (really fast for Sri Lanka) and AC which was welcome given the heat. The free breakfast was great and we ordered sri lankan breakfast the day before...

We stayed here for just one night and it was perfect. It is a lovely family run guesthouse in the ideal location of Galle; within the fort, close to the perimeter for sea views and really close to the iconic lighthouse and the famous mamma's rooftop restaurant. The Dutch Hospital is also directly opposite housing lots of eateries and bars...

We rented 3 rooms there and had a pleasant stays. One of the room was a bit smelly.... The owners are very nice and welcoming. Very well located in Galle. Breakfast OK and few good restaurants around. There is also nice shopping in the area. Galle is clearly worth a visit of a day or two.

We stayed here for 4 days in late November / early December 2014 and HIGHLY RECOMMEND Thenu Guest house. It is actually named after the daughter of the owners which adds to its charm.

Thenu is a very comfortable guest house well situated inside the Fort area. There are numerous restaurants, shops and bars in the vicinity and the owners can organize transport to the rest of Galle and beyond. We really enjoyed staying in the fort rather than in the fairly generic beach accommodation. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, with good aircon...

The owners are really warm, hospitable people and made our stay here one of the highlights of our 2 week Sri Lankan trip. We didn't initially plan to stay in Galle and changed our itinerary at the last minute with a last minute booking for Thenu Rest House the day before we arrived. It turned out to be the best...

Stayed one night. The owner and his family made us very welcome and recommended good places to eat. basic rooms with wet room shower and few amenities but in fantastic location opposite the old hospital complex.

“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.”
