Superb hotel !
Lovely colonial style hotel with exceptional service standards. The spacious cool rooms are a treat to return to after a day out in the hot sun. The hotel is very well located close to but just off the busy streets where most of the restaurants and shops are Complimentary afternoon tea & cakes and happy hour drinks are a very nice touch The breakfast menu has a great choice and our meals were delicious. I would definitely recommend this hotel
Stayed in a banyan tree room right at the end of the building, so super private. Had a lovely little balcony attached. Rooms are very spacious and well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. Food served in the restaurant was very good. Had a couple of spa treatments, highly recommend. Staff are very attentive, and efficient. Pretty little hotel.
Super boutique hotel
Well situated for exploring Galle, this attractive boutique hotel is part of the Teardrop group. The décor is smart and fashionable, the rooms and bathrooms are well equipped with some lovely touches. Bathrobes, generous toiletries in refillable pump containers, a complimentary soft drinks minibar. A cafetière with ground Sri Lankan coffee, a carton of milk, and teabags are alongside the kettle. At tea-time, tea and biscuits are left by reception for residents to help themselves to, and there's a 'happy hour' between 5 and 6 when you can get a complimentary G&T, beer or arrack from the bar. Breakfast is first class - fruit platters, juices, a bread / pastry basket and a good choice of traditional cooked breakfasts. The hoppers are excellent! There's also a lovely spa tucked at the back of the hotel with a good range of treatments at reasonable prices, where I had an excellent massage. The lighting in the bedroom could be better, and the four poster bed was rather creaky, but wifi was good and air-con excellent.
Ideal location in Galle
The hotel is situated within the heart of Galle Fort, which has a fascinating history, having successively been colonised by the Portuguese, Dutch and British. This hotel is a restored Dutch building, with bedrooms set around a courtyard affording spacious accommodation. Very comfortable, with attentive staff and good breakfast (we didn't have any other meals). We enjoyed complimentary drinks between 5 and 6pm. One small criticism - the bedroom lighting was a little too subdued, making it difficult to read at night.
I loved this hotel. It was really atmospheric and our room was amazing. It was almost like a large apartment. The bathroom was really amazing too. There was a lovely seating area looking over the courtyard, very peaceful. The bar aea was also very pleasant with a good choice of drinks. I was lucky enough to sample a new cocktail which I was given on the house. The staff were all very friendly and efficient. I didn't find the matress very comfortable, but TBH I didn't care as I just loved this place
