Everything is fine, but the staff leave the TV on all night long. And the stairwell is not easy to negotiate.
Not what you would hope for”
Mama's guest house is not very clean and really shabby. Although ideally located in Galle Fort it has not kept up to date as most of the other hotels/guest houses have. Although the bed was reasonably comfortable the room had damp, stained and blistered plaster, the bathroom had an unlocked door onto the public landing, poor lighting and no ventilation, the room doors we insecure. Proper maintenance and cleaning was clearly low on the agenda and the price did not reflect the lack of investment by the proprietor. Not a place I would recommend at that price.
A nice balcony overlooking the street below but it was too noisy because it is next to the mosque. Too many mosquito inside the room. Wi-Fi signal is weak. Water pressure is not good. No tv. Walls need painting in the rooms.
Charming place with amazing food on the rooftop”
This place seems to be a hidden gem in an otherwise tourist overloaded Galle Fort. The rooftop terrace welcomes you to spend hot afternoons with chilling drinks and an amazing view. The Sri Lankan food is very good and good value for money in touristy Galle Fort.
The place was dirty, matress old and dirty. Bed sheets was dirty, bed non conformable. It seems non maintanance at all. The room is in the second floor, just above the kitchen - a lot of noise at nipht.
Noisy and smelly...”
Satisfied and excellent.”
A bit Caotic”
Mamas Guest House. Perfect location within the fort. Fine and spacious room. No WiFi beside in the reception area at the ground floor. No outdoor space. Do not expect to use the rooftop terrace, unless you are a guest in the restaurant. The price through Agoda is higher than if booked locally, and breakfast is included, if booked locally. The restaurant is chaotic. The staff has not really track of orders, tables and guests. As an example, we never got what was ordered for breakfast, even though we were the only guests at the time. Another example is guests who were asked to leave their table before they had paid, even though they had waited long for the bill etc, etc. Description in one word must be “chaotic”. Of course there also were individuals among the staff who really tried to get things to run smoothly. Be aware that the original Mammas Restaurant has moved to premises around the corner! We stayed at Mamas five nights, which was too long.
nice room but really need to refurbish”
this is a resturant, had feeling that owner doesn't take good care of their rooms. It was a well-designed room, but it would be good to maintain it in good way.
Great room shame about the mattresses...”
This is the second time I've stayed here. I like the room but the old mattresses lying outside the room door were disgusting. They were old moldy and god knows what!
Friendly, private accommodation; full of character”
Suited our short stay due to central location; friendly welcome at character guest house where we were left in peace. Room clean, tidy and authentic. Mosquito nets useless but not required as no mosquitos around.
A brief overnight stay”
Whilst the location and roof terrace are excellent there is too much play on the old! I think it needs a little TLC. They don't need to change much just a lock of paint will do. Compared to other staff we've encountered in Sri Lanka then this staff need to get up to speed. Average! Generally I feel it was overpriced.
Really enjoyable stay!”
Really enjoyed our stay here at Mamas Guest House, the room is huge, clean and beautiful! Very colonial and pretty! Great little balcony area looking out into the galle fort area. The only problem is there are SOOOO MANY mosquittos! My mum got very bitten. Location is perfect, inside galle fort. Short walk to all the cafes, places to eat and shops. Didn't eat here so cannot comment on the food. It is a little expensive.
Good value for money but check room in advance!”
The guesthouse only have two rooms so if you book via agoda make sure that you call in advance so that your room is not double booked. Rooms are nice and ok, they are large with an old colonial style. As the place only have two rooms service is just outside the door, you dont have to wait second for attention. What makes this place nice is the rooftop diningplace. It it´s wounderful. A couple black langur monkeys even had their dinner at the same time as us! The curry is one of the best in town and the view of the lighthouse and threehundred years old mosque is very nice.
Typical old Dutch house in the for just one block from light tower Maybe the best value for money in Galle, though a bit rundown
Good value for money”
This is a nice old colonial guest house. Admittedly it is a little tired and worn but this seemed to add to the charm of the place. Massive room and perfectly adequate. The Mama's restaurant on the rooftop is not the same as the previous one which has now moved around the corner. The food at the new rooftop restaurant was pretty average and the view is not even that great. Stay at this guesthouse but eat meals elsewhere.
Perfect Location to Explore Galle”
We booked both rooms for our family, very impressed by comfortable bed and pillows. Rooftop restaurant was great for Sri Lankan food.
Beautiful room, huge! Lovely to have places to sit not just on the bed. Nice bathroom and good wifi in places. Breakfast is fantastic, wonderful to had fresh fruit. Can't recommend the restaurant curry and the room highly enough (we were booked for 3 but stayed for 6 nights!).
This guest house is a little piece of history and the room was large (foyer, bedroom, huge bathroom and balcony) overlooking the paved streets and down to the fortress wall and ocean at the end of the street. The room was fresh and clean and the hotel has a cafe on the rooftop where we had breakfast. It is within walking distance of everything within the fort.
Comfortable hotel, great breakfast”
Room was big and a very strange shape but clean. No hot water in the shower but it didn't matter. The breakfast and dinner here are great. The view from the rooftop restaurant of the hotel at breakfast is lovely! Be careful not to go to the similarly named Mamma's restaurant which is very close - the food is not good and there is no rooftop view!!
