Spotless guesthouse, brilliant location, lovely st”
I would highly recommend New Old Dutch House to anyone visiting Galle. We stayed in the cheapest room with no ac but it was still absolutely spotlessly clean and had tv, mini fridge, even a hair dryer and ironing board/iron! The shared bathroom was one of the cleanest I've ever seen. It's in a great location within the old fort itself, just a minutes walk from the walls themselves. The staff are very friendly and arranged a very reasonably priced taxi for us to Arugam Bay. Wonderful place, thank you!

Exceptional”
I appreciated all the small detail, soaps and shampoo in the shower and always a bottle of water with breakfast. The air conditioning was a God send make sure you pay the little extra for your comfort.

Clran place right in the fort”
Excellent location for visiting the fort in Galle. Place was clean and staff helpful and friendly. The " junior double" is up steep steps with the bathroom outside the room. I think price was a litthe high for that. It had a nice garden where they served breakfast.

Ok but nicer around”
The room I booked online was a junior double. Got there and they basically said it was a single. It also had no bathroom in the room, which I had booked. They offered to upgrade us. At a cost of +30%. We took it though. Then it turned out the air con only worked for 20 mins before cutting out and the room was like a sauna. The shower didn't heat (only cold showers) and the wall to next door wasn't a full wall. There were slats at the top! We saw their light / they saw ours. No privacy. Etc. The only redeeming things about the place were the location (very convenient) and the polite staff. Only book if you have limited options. It's not the worst in the world but it's not brilliant. Galle is a really place. It's clearly been "gentrified" for tourism but that's ok. The old hospital on the other side of the fort has a few reliable bars and eateries.

Clean and comfy stay in double room with shared bathroom. Included breakfast was good. Staff helpful in organising transport to our next location. Accomodation was a little expensive but expected when staying in Galle fort.

Good but not great”
Nice stay, great staff and breakfast, but its not that clean, esp bathroom dirty and stains in sheets. We had trouble with our backpack got lost in transfer. Staff tried to help by contacting airport but after a day the other staff didnt understand us. We had to book an extra night cause of the backpack, this was more expensive.
