    This small Guest House is where we always enjoy staying in Galle. The 2 first floor balcony rooms are clean and comfortable. Their roof top restaurant has a lovely breezy location and is the perfect place to enjoy sunset drinks and a tasty dinner....

    Well-located property close to the Fort wall and near restaurants and shops. An old, attractive building opposite a Buddhist temple, with rooms adapted for modern use, and a very pleasant roof-top bar with lovely views to the Fort wall and sea....

    Excellent location with views to the fortifications. Loved sitting on my balcony, people watching. Friendly staff. Good aircon, fridge and WiFi. Fresh flowers on the balcony table was a nice touch.
