Very friendly staff. Receptionist helped us with all our requests. He arranged very nice trip to elephant, cheap tuktuk price etc. We got last lunch free of charge as typical Srlankan food - delicious, but spicy as old Srilankan food. But very good and too much food. We enjoyed staying in hotel. Very small rooms. Washroom is separate from rooms.Good...

It's a very small but clean hotel. Location is best. Staff are very friendly. I would recommend to ask for rooms others but on the ground floor. Those were not in best shape I thought. Breakfast is ok. With fruits and a choice of eggs served with toast. The town itself is a great place to have a one night...

The place was recommended on a guidebook, so my bf decided to book it. We stayed there for 1 night. The room was clean with a shared bathroom. The room was very small though and AC didn't work well. The staff were helpful and friendly. They advised me a reliable taxi service for the next day. This place overall was...

One of the prime reasons for visiting Galle is to see 'Galle Fort' so you may as well stay within the fort walls. New Old Dutch House seems to have a variety of different standards of rooms, there were several to choose from when I visited (Nov. 2015) so I was able to be 'picky' and negotiate an agreeable rate....

We stayed at the New Old Dutch House for two nights. In the first night there was only one room available (above the hotel's jewellery store) with just a very, very small bed (I would have called it a single-bed) and almost no light or fresh air. Since you had to pay extra for the air condition, it got quite...

Our room was clean enough, but the "bathroom" consisted of a plastic shower box built into the room, with a shower that was almost impossible to understand and only sometimes dispensed warm water. The bed was really comfortable and hard and the AC worked. The breakfast was quite boring, but the location is of course great and the wi-fi worked....

The New Old Dutch House – strange name – has a good location inside Gale Fort, but otherwise I will recommend to stay away. We had booked 1 single, 1 double and 1 triple room, but we got 2 doubles and 1 very small single without bathroom. The double was branded as a family room – one mattress was put...

Simply a case of an average staff attitude and an unclean bathroom, bedroom, pidly shower and no hot water, despite having paid extra for the double room with aircon and an en suite bathroom. The 'double' was two single beds we asked to be pushed together and even then, it was a big problem with tutting and huffing and puffing....

“As the name suggests - the junior suite is quite small, with a small double. So if you are a tall couple get a bigger bed”
