I stumbled across this place and after enjoying it so much decided to give it a review. I was surprised to read some of the negative comments about this place, but then again if you come all the way to Sri Lanka and go to a place run by Sri Lankans and order a western breakfast or Italian food you...

We stayed elsewhere but ate breakfast here every day of our stay in Galle. The owner and his staff were very attentive & friendly. Our breakfast was great each day we had the Sri Lankan omlet, and was nice to have a little chat with the owner about Galle each morning. Wifi was good, nice to catch up on some... More

We stayed here 3 nights when travelling with my adult daughter. Our room was clean, a good size, our own bathroom and fantastic AC! Reasonably priced in a central location in Galle Fort. The staff were all very friendly and attentive, and they gave us a good discount on the room rate as my daughter had previously stayed here with... More

I have not slept here. But I still give my finest recommendations of the Inn site manager. I was with a friend checked into another hotel earlier in the evening, where we were quickly away, out to eat without getting the address and hotel name written down. In the end, we had to go round and round in Galle to... More

Located within Galle's Fort, it is the perfect location to visit the old city. The staff is very friendly, always happy to help and very nice with my little girl.

Pretty basic and bijou not all that room, a wet room for shower. Good food and a reasonably sized menu. Great location for getting about the place. Bring a torch as there is o not the main room light in my room. Good wifi and the staff are friendly.

Stopped here and thought we would have lunch. However once we went inside, the surrounds, the congealed food on the tablecloth and the cat under a neighbouring table ensured that we only had a drink and moved on. Looked grubby.
