This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Stayed at Ocean View Mar24-29. Price $100 for first night then $150 from then on as the test match was on. Located in the fort. Room clean but small. A/C worked well. Shower OK pm but barely warm am. Bathroom fittings need upgrading. Altogether a touch of faded grandeur, but staff very helpful and efficient. Breakfast was good. No pressure on buying from jewellery shop on site.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The view from the Internet is a load of bullocks but maybe its a really old picture before the tsunami hit. The Muslim family who rents out the house is nice enough, but you would probably be hard pressed to find similar accomodation at the expensive price of US35 when most of the hotels in and around town can even cost US225 to US400 for the name, designed by Jeffery Bawa and the such. Even for US 120 at Fort Galle Hotel, you get a crappy place.

The view from the room and access to town is the only thing going for the place. Even that, there are only two such rooms with a view. The hot water may not be existant at times, the sheets are dodgy, there are cockroaches in the room at times. The bathroom looks minging. They also lock the door at night, may have trouble getting in and out early.

I would go for other places around Light House or Church Street. Otherwise, make Galle a day trip. Unawatuna is the place to stay with much more options for accomodation and food as well as activity in the day. Otheriwse, it too is pretty dead at night.

Seriously, skip the "Ocean View" guesthouse!
