Bumped to another place in Galle
I was actually bumped on arrival and I never like when that happens, but the place that I booked had been bought out by a group. So at that point, even when you express your displeasure there’s not much you can do. They insisted that the room in the hotel they moved me to was an upgrade but aside from the balcony with a view of the ocean, I disagree. Anyway, breakfast was good and everyone was as friendly as all Sri Lankan’s are. Too bad I didn’t get to stay in the place I booked for the reasons I booked it.

Beautiful guest house in the heart of the vibrant historical walled old town of Galle. Friendly staff and excellent, bountiful, delicious breakfasts. Hard to find as the guest house has no sign or street number. Very hot and the air conditioner struggled to keep the room cool so hard to sleep at night.

Small quiet hotel right in the Galle Fort
We enjoyed our stay in this small and comfortable hotel, were we felt very welcome by the staff. The hotel is right in the fort, in a small and quiet street, surrounded by restaurants and shops. Each room had an outdoor patio with table and chairs where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the morning.

Full of Dutch colonial charm
We pulled into Galle station after a beautiful coastal train ride from Colombo, and quickly found a Tuk Tuk driver who drove us into the Galle Fort area and down the narrow streets to Small House. Our host greeted us with a warm smile and took us up the stairs in the quaint colonial house to our room. It was spacious and clean, with big shuttered windows to let in light from the courtyard area. The host was happy to give us tips on what to do in the city, suggesting we start by exploring the fort and rampart, which did not disappoint. Just a one minute walk from our room and we were stood on the edge of the Dutch fortress' rampart looking out over the sea. We strolled around the perimeter taking in the sights such as the lighthouse, mosque, clock tower and cathedral, finally watching the sun set, before heading to the Dutch Hospital later that evening for food. On our first morning we woke to a pleasant but basic breakfast of eggs, toast, fruit and coffee, before going to Unawatuna beach for the day, something I would highly recommend doing. The bed was comfortable and our room was very clean and well air conditioned. In terms of location you are right where you need to be. Overall it proved reasonable value and I would certainly suggest staying here to my friends.

Great stay, but room for improvement
We had a nice stay at the Small House. The owner and staff were very helpful. The owner lent us his phone so we could book a taxi service we found online, which we think was really great. The breakfast was very tasty, with a mix of western and local foods. The room shows some age though, and is in need of minor repairs. The hotel was also hard to find, with no name on the door! The room is also not completely sealed from the outside,and had no mosquito net, so there is a risk of bugs getting in during the night! We also needed to ask them specifically to provide WiFi and toiletries. After we asked, they provided without issues. All in all a great stay, but with room for improvement.
