IT was a wonderful experience staying here. It was looking a bit sad in the start but the place gives you a lot of positives vibes. the staff is amazing.. very friendly and out there to help you. the place is very close to Galle and you can commute through the bus and it is very cheap! Worth the stay.. good place to relax and enjoy a quiet vacation..
When i was booking this hotel online i didn't know it was a 200 year old former Dutch governor's house! it was definitely a nice surprise as we went into the lobby and admire the house, for a moment i thought we came to the wrong hotel! For the price we pay ( we were travelling in a group and was on a budget), the rooms was clean and spacious, and the pool at the new wing was certainly a nice place to relax. The breakfast buffet spread was scrumptious too. We had a great stay and definitely recommend this place.
It is a family owned hotel, the staffs are really friendly, and they have a spa too! If you're lucky you might even spot some fireflies near the bushes.
First step you walk in the hotel, you will surrounded by the scent of historic and sweet floral fragrance. Only one word appear in my mind "BEAUTIFUL". The entire hotel is beautiful and warm. All the staffs in the hotel are very generous and helpful. The room were decorated with honeymoon style atmosphere which it very suitable for the newlyweds or couples to having their honeymoon holiday in this hotel. The room is clean and comfortable. There are 2 swimming pool, one is children pools(near the hotel lobby) and other one is adult swimming pool with mother nature view which you can enjoy your leisure time by sitting beside the pools. Besides, you also can enjoy the Sri Lanka local food through the breakfast that provided by the hotel. The hotel fried rice is the best fried rice that i had ate along my travel in Sri Lanka. I love the place very much.
We took our two young kids to Sri Lanka for two weeks, and had a wonderful time at Nooit Gedacht, We stayed in a huge "family room" in the historic building, with basically two huge adjoining rooms, our own patio and table for eating. And, we were directly next to the small pool, which made my kids happy.
We were a short walk to the beach, and I particularly enjoyed the historic charm and peaceful ambiance. There were beautiful small fountains and ponds throughout the property, and each morning fresh brightly colored flower petals were placed in them. My daughters loved putting the petals in the ponds and staff always gave them handfuls to put in when they ran over to help.
It was a easy place to meet other families, was in a good location. My kids loved loved the pools, and we were a short walk to the beach. (We had decided to forgo beachfront for the pools to keep the kids happy). One other tip: I did a fabulous fabulous bike ride with Chameera Cycling in Unawatuna too, which was a great way to see the side roads and real village life. Also, we loved staying at the beach by day but tuk-tuking to Galle in the evening for sunset and dinner! The Galle fish market and fruit market a few miles up the road were a fun adventure!
If you want to stay in a hotel where the service is top and the surroundings are like a small paradise, you should visit this hotel. We have never seen so many exotic birds in one place. You also had monkeys and a beautiful lotus pond. We were treated very well and will certainly come back to this place another time.
Was pleasantly surprised to see the quality of service and rooms given the price. Very reasonable for clean, tidy rooms along with a fab pool to boot! If you don't mind a quick 10min walk to the beach this is a good spot and worth every penny. Take mosquito repellent tho!
Stayed here with my partner just for one night but enjoyed it very much. Room was old but clean enough and the fresh flowers on the bed were a nice touch and the welcome drink was delicious fresh juice. Didn't eat in the restaurant as we wandered down into Unawatuna instead which took 5 minutes so can't comment on the food. Hotel is on main road but set back through the main old colonial building so rooms are v quiet. Beach is 5 min walk or 100 rupees in a tuk tuk and is divine! Wish we'd stayed longer!
Arriving at Nooit Gedacht Hotel was a wonderful surprise. I knew that it was an old colonial building with a pretty garden attached, but I wasn't expecting such an amazing place. The grounds were beautifully planted with tropical flowers and huge bamboos; it felt like we had stepped into a private paradise.
We were upgraded to a superior room, which was extremely airy, well-decorated and spacious, with a large balcony overlooking the pool and a small lake full of waterlilies. We slept very well, thanks to the quiet surroundings and a wide, comfortable bed. The buffet breakfast the next morning was extremely plentiful and varied, including delicious omelettes and coconut stuffed pancakes.
Staying outside Galle turned out to be a very good decision as it was only a 20 minute journey into the centre, by bus or taxi, and the main beach was just a 5-10 minute walk away. We also visited a much smaller beach, called jungle beach, which was a 15 minute rickshaw journey over the hill, next to the Peace Temple. The sea was much calmer than on the main beach, so it was good for swimming and snorkelling, though rather crowded.
The staff at Nooit Gedacht were very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. On our last day, as well as looking after our bags while we had a final dip in the ocean, they allowed us to use an empty bedroom to shower and change before we caught our bus. Overall, it was a very special place and we found it hard to tear ourselves away. Fingers crossed, we'll be able to go back one day.
We spend there 2 nights. The hotel was colonial style, peaceful, whit nice gardens and pool.
The food was very good.and the staff very, very helpfull and kind. Good situation: Unawatuna Beach" 2 minuts with tuk-tuk- and 15 minuts walking and Galle 5-10 minuts tuk-tuk. Highly recommended. Very good massages.
We stayed here for 9 nights with two kids aged 3 & 6 years and enjoyed it very much.
The hotel has a nice and laid back vibe to it and you always feel welcome. The hotel is not new and modern, but it has that colonial style that makes it charming (if you like that kind of hotel). The rooms wish fairly equipped and pleasant and the staff was very kind.
The jungle in the backyard, is perfect for adventures with the kids.
