  • had a lovely stay in this spendidly appointed apartment....so comfortable....had a choice between booking a room in a guest house or this beautiful (email hidden) glad i made the right choice!!

    was delighted with the furnishing of the apartment....cosy and quirky.......and also very stylish......

    i caught up with correspondence using the free wifi and then relaxed ...
    later, whilst on my way outside i heard the owner, ranjit,
    calling me...he offered to take me on on a tour of his home including sharing tea and biscuits with him and his wife moninna............i will long remember the family pets...two tortoises....and also a pond with the most beautiful tropical fish..what a friendly introduction to gallefort!

    afterwards i went for a stroll....the walks around the ramparts were an eye opener...ocean breezes and so much to savour...i soaked in the atmospheric sights...the clock tower and lighthouse and look out points.....trodding on the (email hidden)llowing on the footsteps of the portuguese and dutch colonialists who had built this fort hundreds of years previously......
    i ended my evening with a beautiful meal at the local eaterie "india hut"....simply delicious and the service couldn't have been bettered. i had a great time despite my brief stay....and can unreservedly recommend this apartment.

  • Gemütliche Wohnung im Altstadtzentrum von Galle. Weit genug weg, um schön ruhig in einer Wohnstraße zu liegen. Nah genug dran, um in wenigen Schritten einheimische und internationale Restaurants, das Meer sowie alle Sehenswürdigkeiten zu erreichen. Das Beste sind zweifelsfrei die Gastgeber: Die weitgereisten Ranjit und Moninna sind in Galle verwurzelt, können viel über Sri Lanka erzählen und sind vor allem wahnsinnig nett. Absolute Empfehlung!

  • My stay in Galle Fort was really magical! Ranjit and Moninna are quite attentive, hospitable, kind and open people. I was very pleased with all they did to make my trip full of impressions! I'll never forget our adventures at their tea plantation, our chats with a cup of tea, my everyday "alarm" - small squirrel outside the window... :)) The only sad thing is my very short stay in Fort, hope next time it will be much more longer! I will miss my nice sunny room, small streets and old fabulous houses of Galle Fort - it was like I turned of the 19th century! :) I can highly recommend to visit this beautiful place - you'll never forget it!

  • Ranjit and Moninna's guest apartment is AMAZING - arguably the most unique and interesting spot we stayed for our entire trip. It is right in the middle of the charming Galle Fort. The guest apartment is detached from the main home, upstairs across a small backyard courtyard. It has everything you need and more. 2 balconies, full kitchen, gorgeous furniture with a fantastic feel. It is a place you step into and immediately feel at home.

    Ranjit and Moninna have lived in the Galle Fort for over 20 years and the home has been in Ranjit's family for over 5 generations. They welcomed us with tea and a friendly chat, gave nice suggestions for touring/eating out in the fort and help us arrange to get to the airport the next day. They were both charming, interesting people - the only regret of our stay was not being able to stay longer!

    Highly highly recommend booking with Ranjit and Moninna when visiting Galle.
