The owner warmly welcomed us and brought us a tea while talking a little and giving some tips about places to eat in Galle ! This guest house is lovely, we got the bedroom at the top floor with the balcony with a view on the sea, the AC and the fan, its own bathroom, clean and cosy, fast wifi...

The first thing to say although it wasn't a problem is that this place is a honestay more than a guesthouse. You have to access the rooms through the main house. The family were lovely and the bed was so comfortable. They helped us arrange a car for us and couldn't have been more helpful. The balcony view is wonderful...

This guesthouse is in the Fort so very easy to walk around. My room is on the second floor with a little bit of sea view. But the toilet is leaking, can't flush properly. Also, the room is full of paining smell. Didn't sleep well!

The first thing to note about the place is that this is a private home with rooms converted for guest accommodation. So a couple of things you may have to take note of, e.g. you have to leave your shoes outside, there is no breakfast served, nor is there the usual services typically associated with hotels. Sometimes, to get in...

Fort De 19 Villa is inside the fort and this is really the place to be in Galle. The Fort is a great area and the villa whilst not really in the centre is close enough that everything is within a few minutes walk. Great family running it and they are really kind and look after you, e.g. whilst waiting...

Excellent location within the fort, just in front of the rampart, good to walk everywhere.Friendly owners but limited interaction with them. We had a room with no balcony unfortunately, facing the side of the house, so no view . There is a balcony that we can use on the top of the house, but with no shade, impossible to stay...

Within walls of the fort and a 5 - 10 minute walk from the station. Beautiful view over the ramparts at sunset. Friendly family owners who can organise transport and suggest places to go. Suggest that you ask for a room upstairs.

Very comfortable rooms with strong A/C. After all the guesthouses I stayed in serving breakfast, I did find it slightly bothersome to walk around in the heat of the morning looking for a place to have breakfast, especially as I became a bit ill while in Galle--but not a huge deal. I definitely liked the location, which is right across...

When you get to it, it feels like someone's home and it is very much a home. The guest rooms are nicely done and clean. Very comfortable bed. There's a rooftop that you can go up to for views of the fort and sunrise, though the fort itself is just a couple of steps across the road. They give you...

We had the room on the second floor with the balcony and sea views. The room and the attached bathroom were both very clean, the bed was comfortable, the a/c and wifi worked perfectly and the welcome bottle of water was much appreciated. The owner even told us to check out their rooftop for some sunset views, which was nice....
