Spent one day and enjoeyd our Galle Fort stay. The whole interior was suprisingly quite cooler airier than expexted. Staff is friendly and serves big relatively rich breakfat. No problem with room or anything else. Close to the lighthouse which is wonderful on sunset. Whole fort area is magic.

Enjoyed my short stay here. The room was comfortable, hot water on demand and wifi access good. The location, in the Fort, just across from the shoreline and was close to restaurants, shops, etc. I enjoyed talking to the family and playing with Blackie, their little dachshund, and appreciated the restaurant suggestions.

The rooms are a good size, clean and the owner is very nice. As long as you don't want anything more than basic you will be more than happy here. The location is great - it's within the fort area and just a couple minutes walk from all the restaurants.

The best thing about this place is the location. The room was ok , would have preferred the last occupants hairs to be removed from the bathroom. The family appear to be quite lazy. When we paid on the last day the man couldn't take his eyes off the fuzzy cartoons on the tv. Stay somewhere else!

Most of the tuk-tuk drivers know this place, so reaching Thenu from Galle railway station or bus stand is not difficult - if it's not too sunny, one can walk the distance as well - little less than 900m. We were given the room on...

After extensive travel in Sri Lanka I can confidently state that this is the worst guesthouse/establishment in ALL of Sri Lanka. I base my findings on the following factors: 1. Despite having booked through Hostelbookers and despite having received confirmation of the booking from both Hostelbookers and Thenu Rest Guest House, on our arrival, the owner could not recollect the...

We stayed here for 3 nights. It is a wonderful little guest house, the family who run it are kind and friendly and very helpful. We had a fan room on the top floor at the back for two nights, then another fan room on the first floor for one night. Both lovely rooms, clean and comfortable. Would definitely recommend...

Thanu Rest We took the two non-AC Rooms on the top floor. The rooms themselves were fine and I was happy enough with the bathrooms. Breakfast was nice and they were good enough to serve in the sitting area outside of the rooms which was good. We probably visited at a bad time as the commonwealth heads of state meeting...

“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.”
