Love this small hotel. The rooms are spacious with tiled floors, airconditioning and a feeling of peace and serenity. The staff are wonderful and nothing is too much trouble. Terrific value for money. The breakfast is simple but delicious and very well priced. A little oasis in a busy town

One of the best guesthouses I've stayed in for a reasonable cost which included a big breakfast. Staff were very eager to please. Spacious rooms and good beds. Just Minutes walk from everything but so quiet.

Charming little guesthouse with only a few rooms so nice and quiet. Basic accom at a great price for being inside the Fort. We walked to the beach each afternoon for a swim and to the fort wall each evening to watch the sun set. The hosts are really helpful nice people and they make a fantastic generous breakfast as...

This is a smart little hotel in the Fort with the most comfortable beds ever. The aircon is a blessing, and the bathroom is a wet room (like most in Sri Lanka) It's quite expensive, but no more than other hotels in the Fort.

This hotel is great value for money. Its immaculately clean, plenty of hot water, great wifi and our fridge was very cold. The bathroom was large, modern and worked extremely well. In general, showers in Asian bathrooms tend to wet the entire bathroom -so that is NOT a fair criticism. Also, accommodation in Galle is VERY expensive, very High End....

We booked the junior suite, and if staying again we would book a bigger room, but it was sufficient for 1 night. Breakfast served in the courtyard which was nice and substantial. Our fridge wasn't cold, but no biggy.

I booked this place because I assumed it would match the price....it is a bed and breakfast and cost more than our 4/5 star hotel in Colombo. at half the cost it would have been just about right. However I would add that the Fort area of Galle is generally expensive for accommodation That said, the young staff were all...

The New Old Dutch House (to distinguish it from the nearby "Old Dutch House" I suppose), is almost a lovely place to stay. The main fault is the bathrooms, which are cunningly organised when showering to soak everything in the vicinity, including the toilet seat, toilet paper, mirror and occasionally (if showering too vigorously) the electrical sockets. That aside, it...

My husband and I booked into the New Old Dutch House for our last two nights in Sri Lanka. Sadly it was really disappointing. The manager did his best to demand payment for both nights when we first arrived, we refused and then he kept coming up- 4 times in an afternoon- and demanding money. Then he charged us roughly...

“As the name suggests - the junior suite is quite small, with a small double. So if you are a tall couple get a bigger bed”
