The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. There is free drinking water and shower gel/shampoo provided. The staff is very friendly and for breakfast they serve a great fruit plate. There is a lovely garden and there are many shops and restaurants close to the hotel!

You can be sure of a very warm welcome and attentive service - especially if Ravindhu is on duty. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Mango House describes itself as a boutique hotel and it is certainly very different from the impersonal approach of larger hotel chains or more established, stuffy venues elsewhere in the Fort. It is small... More

Agree that this is not a hotel, because of the simple concierge and facilities. However I would still recommend this house! This is Sri Lankan. It's unfair to compare the hotels here with the hotels in modern metropolitan by the same standards. The staff here are helpful. They helped me book the whale-watching trip (departure at 5 am, and a... More

Lovely guesthouse with beautiful attention to detail, well located on a quiet street inside Galle Fort, a couple of minutes walk away from restaurants and shops.

Small rooms, uncomfortable seats in room, but you can you use all the areas in the hotel, they have some benches upstairs and downstairs as well as lounge seats outside. Bottle of wine is even cheaper than a liquor store (which we couldn't find)... But, this is a guest house, not a hotel; humid bathroom, no space to put your... More

Mango House is a lovely little hotel in a great location. We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed longer. The staff are very friendly and the breakfast was very good. Mango house has a lovely garden retreat in which to relax after walking around to the many sights of the fort.

We arrived to cold flannels and a delicious ice tea, in a beautiful old building that is just stunning. Close to the town centre, but feels far away and quiet; it's gorgeous and tranquil with a lovely garden. The rooms were beautiful, with four-poster beds and sweet small balconies. The breakfast was lovely - I was wary of the chilli... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Very luxurious and the host Mr.Ravindu was extremely helpful in providing us breakfast at 6 am(as we had a train to catch). Very nice place to relax and wind down. Also it is within the Galle Fort area, close to a lot of cafes.

All rooms have en-suite bathrooms, rainforest showers and luxury organic amenities. Wifi access is free throughout the house and our complimentary breakfast is a choice between the full English, Continental or spicy Sri Lankan omelette topped off with fruit salad, yoghurt and Muesli, fresh juices, Italian coffee and Sri Lankan teas. For lunch and dinner, guests are less than five minutes walk from all Galle Fort's delicious range of cafes and restaurants, serving everything from traditional Sri Lankan curry to the best of European and Asian fusion cuisine.
