              From the moment we arrived, we were welcomed and brought to relaxing seats, given cold towels and homemade ice cold lemon tea. Within minutes we were checked in and upgraded to a beautiful room with a terrace. The manager was friendly and so accommodating, the room was lovely and comfortable, and the lounge/communal area was welcoming, charming and full of things to do (games, books, films). Breakfast was homecooked and filling with plenty of options. There was also limitless access to a variety of self-serve hot teas throughout the stay. I would absolutely go back!

              Beautiful setting, right in the middle of the the fort, fantastic breakfast and charming rooms. We loved to hang out in the premecies after breakfast and felt no pressure when our daughter was running around. The mango trees are beautiful and were irresistible to a bunch of monkeys one morning. We would go back anytime.

              We had a wonderful time in Galle Fort and Mango House was the perfect base to relax and explore the town. Service was impeccable and they were able to help us book a very safe driver with a comfortable van to bring us to Dambulla.

              Charming historic hotel in Galle Fort”

              The hotel was even more beautiful than in the pictures. It's like entering a whole new world when you step into their garden from the street. We had a balcony room on the first floor. Even though we had an air conditioner, we chose to keep the patio door open and slept under the mosquito net. We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning. Sue (the hostess) is usually around and very helpful. Excellent service from the staff - special shout out to Raja and Rabinda.

              Seems it's not managed by Sri Lanka people. The style so ENGLAND. The room is very clean. The bathroom is very good. And the breakfast included in the price. You can have multi choice for it. Super good. I can't say anything bad to it except the price is a little high. But still ok.

              I honestly don’t understand how this place got such a good score!! It is not worth it!! It is a glorified guesthouse at best. The rooms are tiny (3m5x3m5), a dirty bathroom, with towels that are smell bad!!! The room/bathroom are so humid that nothing can dry (i.e. towels). There’s no fridge, the tv is tiny, only has Indian channels… Even my laptop screen is bigger than the tv!! The place is full of mosquitoes!! The only nice thing is breakfast which is good!! It is honestly not worth the price!!

We had to leave for the airport early and the staff went out of their way to provide us with an early breakfast before we left. Great location too right in the centre of the fort area.

              Lovely stay, nice staff. Would stay here again. Mosquitoes a bit of a problem (as they are in many places) good idea to tuck in the mosquito net provided to prevent any getting in and trapped in with you

              The best 3 things: interior design, little colonial garden, fruit breakfasts

              Hotel Mango House is managed by a your couple from Europe and just recently re-opened. This name used to belong to the hostel type of accomodation of different owners. The new ones decided to keep the name but change the flavour of the place totaly. Nowadays, it if more a boutique type of a hotel with 7 rooms of a colonial style. Hotel has a lovely courtyard garden with palms and tropical flowers with breakfasts served at a veranda and lobby. We booked a balcony room but asked the owner for a change to a slightly larger one. He kindly agreed to do this, since there were no reservations done and that slight extra space was of great comfort to us. The service was non-problemtic, everything can be easily arranged and we felt the real help from the whole Mango House team. Hotel is located in a strict center of the Galle Fort, close to all the attractions of the fort and is the kind of a place, you can feel the atmosphere of the fort at a great cost-value relation.

              Cleanest Guest house in Sri LAnka”

              Freshly renovated, friendly owners, great location inside Galle Fort.

              We had a really nice time in Galle Fort. Mango house is very central and it is lovely walking around the streets constructed by the dutch in 16-something, the walls of which stood up to the tsunami no problem. The owners have spent 9 months restoring, white washing and tastefully decorating this listed building, and it was by far the cleanest and most modern guest house we stayed in with our 3 boys. Room had aircon, fan, TV, DVD (over 400 to choose from), and the bathroom had custom bottles of shampoo, shower gel, etc. and a huge shower head. Breakfast was good as well, and they recommended a great local eatery 'Crepe-ology' for our dinners. Just ask for a quote before getting stuff washed as they may charge per item. Definitely recommended.

              It is not worthy the price”

              This hotel is in great location that guest can go to the Galle fort by walking, and the decoration with good taste, The people at front desk are also welcoming. I booked one family room. The room is really tiny and the facilities were maintained badly. There was no hot water in shower room, and I could not find anyone at front desk to ask for help. Moreover, the light on the washtub and the fan in lower floor were broken, too. The air-conditioner is at the upper floor, our families felt very cold at upper floor and felt hot at lower floor. We were unable to slept well. Then, we felt exhausted when whale watching. In general, this a commendation experience is not worthy the price.
