This small but beautiful guest house has all the essentials for a relaxing stay. The double room we were in was a little small but that didn't matter to us as the staff were really nice and helpful they even gave us a delicious free Sri Lankan lunch on our last day. Two thumbs up.

The hotel is set in a beautiful old building. The building itself, the reception and the garden is what makes this hotel stand out. The rooms themselves, although spacious, could be better kept. Paint was coming of the walls, and the bathroom door was crumbling due to all the moisture. The shower was situated in between the toilet and the... More

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor. It was perfectly located right in the heart of the Fort. The room was very clean, the water pressure was excellent, and the air conditioning was perfect. The hotel staff took great care of me - arranging a tour with a Tuktuk driver and finding a great place to eat. This was exactly... More

We stayed at New Old Dutch House for 2 nights in September. The guest house is really clean and the breakfasts good (you just get a standard fruit plate, eggs and toast with jam) and it has a perfect location in the middle of the fort, with easy access to loads of restaurants. The leafy courtyard where you eat breakfast... More

À nicely furnished room at the basement was giving on an internal patio. The air condtionning felt essential as galle is quite warm and humid. The hotel is located at the beginning of the Old town. We have done everything by feet. No diner, only breakfast but can't give any feedback as we had none there.. Room was 33€.

We had booked the Gold room (family room in colonial style) through a big Sri Lankan travel agency and got the reservation confirmed. When we arrived, it turned out we were not at all expected and the room was already occupied. We were downgraded to a homestay across the road with 2 single beds and - after the question where...

We did not even end up staying here despite having paid and turned up. Our paid and confirmed booking included a private bathroom and breakfast daily. Upon arrival we were told that if we wanted a private bathroom and breakfast, we would need to pay an extra $28 per night. I showed the manager our booking which clearly shows what... More

Be warned! This hotel is awful! Bedding seems dirty with lots of stains and mould on the sheets. Completely understand this is Sri Lanka...but the room was the worst we have experienced across the world. As a group of three, we had a family room and paid extra for a third bed. The third bed arrived...it was a dirty mattress... More

We booked their cheapest rooms- Room 3 and Room 6 (Double Room and Junior Double room)- but these rooms were extremely cramped without enough space to move around. Pictures of these rooms are not put on booking portals- only larger room pictures are shared (they cost about 20 USD more per might). I felt misled. Though larger rooms were empty,... More

Please do yourself a favour and ignore the negative reviews of this great place. Location - couldn't be better, in the old fort but also convenient if you want to walk through to the new town.
