We arrived at the entrance and tried the wrong door (it's a garage). A woman corrected us to ring the bell, which we did, and then she opened the door... We were led to our room (dirty, cramped and stuffy) and instructed to pay,which we wanted to do the following morning. When she heard us flush the toilet at 6,...

When I arrived, it was very strange, as there was no one to book me in or greet me? So, I just chose a room, dumped my gear, locked the room and went sightseeing. Eventually when I returned, the shop owner next door phoned the owner, and I was told I had chosen the wrong room, this wasn't a problem,...

The "hotel" was definitely the worst of our Sri Lanka round trip - would recommend not to stay here. Unfriendly staff, bath towels and blanket only provided on request (and absolutely not clean at all). Lots of mold in the bed room and in the bath room. Room as well as all interior are very dirty and not really comfortable....

We had a great time in Galle. Nice view to the Light house :) IT is directly located in Galle, you have a beach infront of the Light house. You feel save because After 10 PM the doors are closed. There are nice shops around. Where you can Do good shopping

When we checked in the hosts only seemed interested in the payment. We had to ask for towels and got one medium size towel and a tiny one. We noticed that the room didn't have any cover for the bed later on, but let it go as we brought sleeping bags. We thought "ohh well, atleast the location is good,...

We chose the "best" room at 6000 as the one at 5000 had no window except in the bathroom. "Simple" (lonely planet) is too glowing a description! No soap or drinking water provided, only one power point, payment demanded in advance (no passport recorded or bill provided!), no WiFi at night. There was absolutely no attempt to make us feel...

Good: View from common balcony at the lighthouse is nice WiFi works well Located in the city Bad: Owner wanted us to stay in and pay for a "nicer" room than the one we booked. We had to switch the room. She was very intrusive and bothered us every half an hour with new "suggestions" that were all aimed to...

Average, clean hotel in a good location right next to the fort wall & sea. As with many other visitors, we found the owner friendly but mostly concerned about getting you to book for a number of nights and pay for this in advance. Unlike any other hotel we stayed in Sri Lanka. Over the course of our stay we...

Very nice and pleasant when showing me the room . But when agreed to stay , asked for money , gave me an unreasonable curfew at 10pm on a Friday night and then woke me up at 930am while I was fast asleep . She then asked me for money again . Worst stay in Sri Lanka .
