    WRONG INFORMATION ”

    The area is good , the room was good too but actually when I had looked in website all was good but there were no staff and it was not maintained well , the wifi is very weak in the room and 10 pm guests can’t go out , so what will be the guest doing after 10 pm with a weak wifi ? , I don’t say the hotel was bad , it’s neat and nice , I have no complaints for a night stay but it wasn’t the best experiences though

    Nice guest house on one of the cozy streets. ”

    A nice and clean room to a low price

    The hotel is more of a gust house. It is nice and clean and is located on one of Galle's cozy narrow streets close to the light house. The staff is very service mineded and helpful. The room we stayed in was small but cheap. There is a free WiFi in the hotell withe a reasonable speed, although the coverage barely make it to the room. There is also a nice balcony over the Lebyana street, for the afternoon beer.

    inside the fort and close to the lighthouse.

    I enjoyed my time in Galle. The hotel is deep in the heart of the old fort and is basic but clean and tidy. I really enjoyed spending time talking cricket and drinking tea with the owners who run the gem store in the reception area. I am still waiting for the price on making my KIWI cuff links!!

    Great location”

    location within the fort, reasonably priced

    The villa is located in the heart of the fort and within walking distance of everything in the fort. The room itself is nicely decorated and clean. The only downside is that the room is really hot and stuffy and the air-cond, though at full blast the whole day, barely removes the oppressive heat and stuffiness of the room. Otherwise, a very nice place to stay.

    Location, staff

    Hotel has great location in the fort. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was pretty clean, and bed was comfortable. Hotel has small balcony area that is very pleasant. Hotel is very close to restaurants and other sites. I noticed a few insects in my room and one of the pieces of furniture was broken, but these were not that big of a problem. They were so minor that I did not even mention it to the staff, and if I would have informed the staff, I am confident they would have addressed.

    Great budget option with everything you need”

    Location, comfortable, hot water, free wifi, mosquito screens on the windows

    This place has friendly management, it has great central location and is the most budget friendly option we found in town. All the amenities you need like hot water and wifi, we even got free water. Only negative comments are that the rooms are little dark and the floors could be scrubbed more, otherwise everything else was really clean. There were lots of Mosquitos in the lobby but they have screens on the windows and very good mosquito net over the bed, so there was no problem. You can even get a fish pedicure in the lobby or buy jewellery, the front of the hotel is a jewellery store.

    location, price, location, and price

    this is my second time here! overall (tax's included), i am paying about usd per night for a non-ac room. that is not a bad price for the location. there is some picture perfect scenery around here and the beaches are crystal clear. the room is nice, modest but this is good as there is not a slew of un-necessities that one is charged heavily for. just a room in which the bed fills most of and a bathroom with a hanging shower. there are mosquito's and the net doesn't filter them all so be warned - furthermore there are no blankets! bug spray, don't leave home without it! also, there is only 1 plug in my room (the room is for 2) so beware! there is a plug socket on the second floor balcony though.

    Location was perfect, good value for money

    Fantastic location near the lighthouse in the fort. The hotel has a jewellery shop in front, a little gift shop and a fish spa inside! The room was fine, nothing special but nothing wrong with it either. The hotel did shut for 2 hours (couldn't get in or out) during afternoon prayer time which was a little annoying but apart from that the service was very good and the people that work there were really friendly. Highly recommended place for the price.

    Good location, clean and friendly

    This guest house was warm a friendly and surprisingly peaceful being in the centre of Colombo. It was a little difficult for our taxi to find as it is tucked away in a side street, but the owner was great and directed our driver over the phone. The hotel has a charitable element too, during e day there are blind masseuses so you can do something good fo the Sri Lankan community and get a good massage at the same time.

    Great location & service,rooms big enough to sleep”

    Perfect location in Galle fort and more decently priced than the other hotels. Breakfast (and I also purchased lunch when I arrived) was traditional Sri Lankan home cooked meals, so able to try more of the different foods they offered here. Advice was plentiful - including things in Galle, places around Sri Lanka, modes of transport, and even extended as far as phoning buses and trains to check on times and stops. Wifi was great. Balcony with fan was perfect for morning breakfast or late at night. Mosquito net did a great job!

    Good value for money and assistance was great. Its probably more of a hotel for those that a more likely to be out and about, and not wanting to relax in the hotel. Its above a jewellers (though I was never once pushed to buy anything), so be sure to contact them if you are arriving before 7am or after 10pm as you mightnt get in! Theres only maybe 3 rooms, so I liked that it wasnt 'busy'. It does have couches and tables and the balcony, but the front room that I was in was really only big enough for the giant bed and my bag! So i relaxed on the balcony most of the time.

    quaint little hotel with delicious food”

    great breakfast curry

    Our driver had trouble finding the hotel, so i would recommend taking the address or a map with you. The staff were so friendly. We asked if they could make us a traditional breakfast rather than the continental breakfast they usually serve. The curry they served us was possibly the best breakfast we had in our entire Sri Lanka stay. On the down side, the room was a little small.

    lovely guesthouse with a great family.”

    Good service, great breakfast and nothing is too much to ask the family.

    We arrived unexpectedly at 6am and the family woke up (with a smile) and let us in, we thought we'd leave our bags then come back at check in time but they checked us in then and let us stay. We were so thankful. We stayed 2 nights, our first 2 in sri lanka and were left with a great first impression because of this guesthouse. The room was clean and cosy, breakfast always felt like such a treat and the family were always there for a chat ans gave us so much advice for the rest of our 6 week trip round sri lanka. We highly recommend this guesthouse.

    Sri Lankan - French food

    I stayed two nights in Galle Fort and the Leynbaan Villa is a lovely place to be. My room was clean and with AC. But unfortunately there were no windows to the building's outside. The service was good and the meals (i had breakfast and dinner) were excellent. The Leynbaan Villa is placed near to the Fort wall in the south, so it takes only 1 min two have an awesome sunset on the wall.
