    Little gem”

    We stayed in Secret Palace Guesthouse for two nights and really enjoyed our stay. It's a calm and peaceful place tucked down a little alleyway right in the heart of Galle Fort. Our top floor room had a small balcony overlooking rooftops and was tastefully decorated. A/C and hot water worked well and the bed was very comfortable - a bit on the firm side by North American standards, but perfect for us. The breakfast smoothie bowl is AMAZING, though I wish the restaurant opened earlier and stayed open during the day (it's only open from 8-9 despite what the menu says). However, that's not a big deal as there are lots of restaurants and cafes within a 5 minute walk. And, when I came down with my hungry toddler at 11:30, the helpful staff made a meal anyways so I could feed him. The only other thing we noticed was a smell from the drains occasionally. I'm not sure if that's because we were on the top floor. It wasn't there always but when it was it was noticeable.

    Tucked away from the main streets this lovely place is an example of Dutch architecture meets a modern twist. The interior is tastefully done. Staff were very helpful and present to assist at a whims notice. Breakfast which was included with the room was fresh and very filling.

    Staff there are nice, friendly and helpful! They provide a lot of useful information or share about Sri Lanka if you need. It’s inside Galle Fort so it’s convenient to walk around and enjoyable to spend whole day there. The breakfast is great which makes my day!

    We stayed here only one night in this hotel. The staff was reall friendly and helpful. The Hotel is a little bit hidden but you find it. It's really quiet there and the rooms are comfortable and modern. The breakfast is really delicious 😊 We would stay here again when we are in Galle again. Thank you

    The location is good. But the service is not good enough. The breakfast starts from 8:30am. I bought the water, which was printed as 60rbs, from the guest house. When I left the guest house, they charge me 100rbs.

    Secret Palace ”

    Deluxe double room was right next to wooden desk where you checked in. The family managing the property were nice enough however room window looked into the living area of their home so had to keep curtains closed all the time and put up with their lights and TV and kids playing and usual activities of family life. Bed and pillows comfortable, intermittent hot water. Air conditioning worked well. Had to go to their other property for included breakfast which wasn't an issue for me. Wifi worked ok. Old man of family there more than managers and he spoke no English. For what room was, it was over priced.

    Tidy but compact”

    Beautifully laid bed, nice shower

    We spent only one night here on the last night of our honeymoon. Owner was very nice & helpful, room rather compact (just enough space to walk around the bed) but clean and they'd obviously made an effort for the bed was decorated beautifully with flowers. The only negative was that the fridge had obviously been used and then switched off without cleaning it out - shame as I really fancied a G&T (Galle Fort literally all goes to sleep at around 9pm!) as a nightcap. To be fair the place had only just opened and I would expect the owner has already ironed out any wrinkles.

    Convenient, Cleaniness, Friendly Staff

    Secret Palace is marked wrongly in Agoda map, it's located inside the Fort, not near to railway station. But I was glad to know that at my arrival. It would be more convenient to travel the Fort. It's just take a few mins walk to Flag Rock to see the amazing sunset. Guesthouse nearby had few excellent western restaurant. I had my relaxing breakfast at nice rooftop.
