Simple family run guest house just round the corner from Pedlar St. Clean and comfortable bedroom, well furnished with fairly basic shower room. Good breakfast on street terrace -- a good place to watch wedding photo shoots! Mistress of the house pleasantly direct!!!

Located just a few meters from the beach and in a convenient place to visit the city centre. We had the street-front room, quite hard to sleep after 7am. Wifi working, good breakfast and housekeepers are nice. Not recommended for more than 1 night

I would recommend this guesthouse because of its location and friendly hosts. The guesthouse is located within the walls of the Dutch fort and next to the old hospital, which contains several restaurants. The guesthouse is run by a welcoming family who serve a tasty breakfast. Do be aware that the front door is locked at ten. This wasn't really...

Thenu Rest Guest House is in a very good location in Galle Fort. It is right next to the Old Dutch Hospital which is full of restaurants and shops. Also, it is only a short walk from the lighthouse, small beach and Fort. The business is run by a friendly and helpful family who will accommodate you in any way...

The rooms were basic but very clean and spacious. The location is amazing and surrounded by loads of good restaurants. The family that runs the place is lovely and the breakfasts are sensational and huge. This is a really good value for money place & gives you a little insight to Sri Lankan hospitality!

This guesthouse seemed expensive for what it was (the room seemed budget, with only internal windows and noisy AC), but you're paying for the excellent location in Galle Fort - it's easy to walk anywhere in the old town, and over the road is the dutch hospital which has been converted into restaurants etc. Good breakfast & friendly staff.

I stayed there 4 nights (only planned for one). Although all of Galle Fort is easy walking distance, the fact this is directly across the street from great ocean side bars and restaurants makes it the best place to stay in the fort. The owner/operators are nice and I loved their dog (although she does bark a lot).

We stayed for one night but was pleasant. The room was cute with an old fashioned 4 poster bed with mozzie net and good air con. The breakfast was very good with eggs, toast and fruit and is served on the terrace. The owner and her staff were also very helpful and the guest house is in a great location...
