Lovely family run place in Galle Fort
A lovely spot on the eastern side of Galle fort. We were given a choice of rooms. Our room had a four poster bed with mosquito net, fan and A/C, overlooking the nearby dutch mansion house museum (well worth a visit, by the way). All staff very friendly. In particular, the breakfast was outstanding - make sure you ask for the Sri Lankan breakfast the day before; we had the most wonderful rottis with dhal and coconut sambol, a pineapple smoothie, and sweet pancakes with (i think) sugar and coconut inside. Hands down the best breakfast we had in our whole two week trip. (Don't know if they do evening meals etc, so cannot comment). My only gripe was the shower head kept coming off the hose and was not particularly powerful or hot.

Excellent
Enjoyed another good stay at Then Rest Guesthouse (our last being 3 years ago). As before, the hosts were very friendly and helpful. We had good size, clean rooms with air con and mozzie nets and had an excellent breakfast each morning. Would recommend!

Awful experience for seniors group, surly and sullen guest house owner
A broken down guest house in need of maintenance. Enjoy broken fittings, aircon contoller that did not work, bathroom door that could not be closed, windows off a balcony used for access that had no privacy curtains, but only filthy net curtains ... all readily available if you stay at this place . Oh, and if you are a seniors group with some physical stairs climbing issues, don't expect ready and friendly help with your bags, up 2 floors of steps! This is a place to avoid at any price, verbally hostile owner!

Awful experience, sullen and surly owner
We were greeted by a sullen and loud-spoken owner who made us feel that we ought to be privileged to stay at his run-down establishment! He was reluctant to help us up the steep stairs to 2 levels up. Upon check-in we were told that we were late and hence the best rooms were all taken. My brother occupying another room was told that there were other rooms on the 2nd floor, so choose whichever you prefer. Our room was in a poor state of repair - no block-out or privacy curtains on the window and the access walkway outside the room. Bathroom was a mess, door was loose on its hinges, could not be readily closed without banging and forcing. The bathroom latch did not work, was jammed. The handbasin had a mouthwash tumbler that was filthy, had not been cleaned for ages. The shower was over the w.c. area so the whole floor and w.c. was wet when showering. Previously used bathroom slippers were provided, to keep one's feet dry from the wet floor. There was no apparent insect sreen on bathroom window, so mosquitoes could enter, as well as under big gap in entrance door. A mosquito net was provided but was misaligned with double bed below, so that at one side it dd not stay down but moved back on top of the mattress and bed. The aircon unit could not be operated easily, as the temperature down button was worn, so tempearature could not be set below 25 deg C to cool down the room at first. It was stuck on 25 deg C and could only be adjusted up, not down. In order to reset the temperature down to 25 deg C one had to remove and re-insert the batteries. The remote unit was broken, battery compartment cover was missing. We received a very hostile response when we complained about the aircon control and were reprimanded verbally for 'being the only people who complained'. We experienced a very bad attitude from the owner during our 2-night stay, he spoke in a very loud, abrupt manner everytime we made any small request, and usually a reluctant unfriendly response. I was su

Great location
It was in a great spot to explore the Fort area with plenty of shopping and food nearby. It was a nice guest house and the owners were lovely. The bathroom in our wasn't ideal as you had to shower squished in between the toilet and the sink, but there was ample hot water which was rare during our trip. The air conditioning worked but by the time we turned it on it was too late at night to note that the remote didn't work, so it was 18 degrees or off - very chilly! I'm sure they could have helped if we had tried to turn it on earlier. The only major for us was that there were absolutely no power outlets in the room at all (even if you unplugged the air con, it was the wrong size plug). It would also be beneficial to note on the Agoda page that the doors are locked at 10pm. This isn't usually an issue but it was our last night and we were hoping to see if there was any nightlife in Galle. This might not be an issue as there may not be much night life - didnt risk!
