    Although, we didn't get the room we actually paid for (we were refunded through AGODA), it didn't affect our stay too much. The smaller room didn't have a private bathroom, which was a bit inconvenient but overall, it was a good experience.

    Great place, but with a few quirks”

    Spotlessly clean, blissfully quiet; the bed was supremely comfortable, and aircon efficient and inaudible. Fast and cheap laundry service; good breakfast. Wi-fi is strong in the lobby area, but very weak in the ground floor rooms. Service was OK, but rather unsmiling, and at times we felt tolerated rather than welcomed

    Spotless guesthouse, brilliant location, lovely staff.”

    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!

    We only stay a night but we enjoyed it. Nothing much to expect for the room but it is clean and the bed is comfort to for a rest. Love the breakfast moment at the open dining area in the morning. You have to wake up early to have a stroll in Galle before it get busy, you will love it!

    very very clean, nice design, close to Fort Galle

    Excellent stay at New Old Dutch House. Was there 2 nights. Room was very very clean, everything is white with old dutch furniture with Muslim touches. Staff was helpful and spoke good English. Wifi was fast for Sri Lanka. Only negative was shared bathroom down the hall. Good European coffee at Lavazza down the road about 400 meters and 100 meters away is Aruna's where you can get pizza and other western food if you are tired of rice and curry (though they make a good rice and curry there too).

    Booked 2 rooms about 1 month ago. When we arrived there was only 1 room available. One of us was given a room in an old house 100 metres down the road. The room was on the ground level next to the main road which was extremely noisy. The water from the tap in the toilet was muddy and very slow.

    Good but Be Aware”

    Thought the room included breakfast and an ensuite. The tab at the top of the add says 'Breakfast Included' when it should say 'Include Breakfast.' And you press on it. Room 8 only comes with a shared bathroom which is down a narrow curved staircase and along a balcony passed ensuite rooms. There was no obvious stand out indication the it shared a bathroom.

    Very nice house with a helpfull friendly staff! The only bad thing was my "Single room" behind the kitchen: tiny, very hot and sticky, even at night. The "private bath" was only to be entered by crossing the common floor.

    Location, cleanliness, breakfast

    I booked a small room with shared bathroom/shower. Overpriced. I stayed 3 nights but the room wasn't touched. Staff were pretty helpful when available and very friendly. The hotel is spotless and the breakfast good. Prices for regular rooms with bathroom are way more than indicated in travel books.

    Service, security and standards

    Our stay was accommodated at every turn by the friendly, helpful staff. The hotel is impeccably clean and the rooms of a high standard with a safe and a fridge. Our only misgivings was the journey from our room to the shared toilet, but we were in the cheapest room they had available so it is less a complaint than a reminder that you get what you pay for. Cannot recommend this hotel enough for the excellent servic. Would certainly stay here again though perhaps in a different room.

    In old center of Galle, value for money, helpful staff

    We stayed just one night (which is sufficient for Galle) and had a good experience. Galle is packed with guesthouses, as Galle is very small it doesn't really matter where in gGalle (old town) your guesthouse is. Fan was a little loud in the room, but nothing to worry about. Staff is very helpful also with helping us to find the right trains and buses fir our trip to trimcomalee. We had standard (English) breakfast which is accompanied by lots of fruit. This guesthouse is a good choice!

    Cleanness, security and location

    We needed a night stay to attend family function in town. This place is really convenient being near from everything yet very quiet. There are many options in Galle fort but if you get bargain price like me (with tax $21), this is really good place. Bathroom was not inside as this was really tiny attic room but just for a night it was OK with my teenage daughter.

    Quiet and comfortable enough”

    The hotel is reasonably clean and the superior rooms are spacious and nicely decorated

    We stayed in this hotel for two nights and found it to be quite well- located both for seeing Galle Fort and for reaching the bus station for our onward journey afterwards. Unfortunately the beds were extremely hard and had lumpy matresses, I don't think our backs would have appreciated another night there as I had backache all the time i was there. The breakfast was poor and although the outside breakfast area was pretty, there was a terrible smell from the drains every time a guest flushed a toilet.

    There is a construction site ongoing next to the hotel which took some morning sleeping hours away as they started at 7.30 a.m, we upgraded from Fan room to air con room but air con was not cooling that's why we sweated a lot that night., the TV is central controlled that means there is only one channel for all room TV's possible, hopefully it's not the disney channel.

    nice relaxing friendly place”

    peaceful, very clean and comfy. also the breakfast is perfect

    Firstly I think this is an excellent place to stay. The rooms are large, the beds comfy and the bathrooms super clean. Also the breakfast of eggs, fruit and plenty of bread is perfect. that's why i was wondering why the reviews were either very good or very bad. We had to wait 1hr for our room (the lounge is a very comfy place to wait and it's no big deal), maybe that's the reason. My advise is not to let little things ruin a brilliant stay, because this place is worth it.
