Welcoming staff, charming hotel though a bit outdated rooms (in the area across of street from the swimming pools). Ask for rooms close to the both pools. Not that close to the beach, though reasonable walking distance. All in all positive stay, great value for the money.

We visited this hotel only days after it was sold to a new owner. Because of this the staff couldn't offer everything on the menu (they didn't have wine the first days for example). The hotel and garden is really beautiful - but it needs to be looked after and painted - it is worn.
But, the staff is nice - the food was great (try the rice and curry!!) and we had a relaxing few days at the hotel !

We just spent an absolutely wonderful week at the Sun House. This beautiful oasis of calm, away from the chaos of Galle, is a gem of a place. It's true that the house is rather shabby and in need of some attention …. but we weren't too bothered by this. We were in the Dumas Suite - which has a lovely spacious bathroom, a pretty bedroom area and a separate area with an old Portuguese chaise longue and a desk. This suite is well air conditioned and sufficiently separate from other hotel areas to afford good privacy. We found the food to be of variable standard. For the first few nights it was excellent - Then the chef was taken to the Taprobane Island villa to cater for a wedding and the standard dropped. In fact we felt we ate the same fish curry for three nights running (despite requesting something different) The staff at this hotel are all utterly charming - and very attentive in a discreet way….. which makes for a very relaxing atmosphere. Dick's Bar is great fun …. and we had several entertaining evenings there. (stunning cocktail list )

Room Tip: Choose the Dumas Suite for air con and privacy

We stayed here for four nights in January with our two kids. One had been ill and as soon as we were met at the station by Karen I knew we would all be ok. We were so cared for and looked after it was amazing. The food - best of our 3 week trip and so good to eat and chat with the other guests too. We stayed in the villa which is perfect for a family. The house is a very special place with superb style and character. Dont be put off by it being outside Galle, is a fun short tuk tuk in and you look forward to returning back from the town every time. Don't hesitate to book this place if you are heading that way!!

We only stayed here overnight but found it to be a very nice place (pun intended)! The room located in the jungle was surprisingly beautiful, clean and with flowers on the bed - and the shower with hot water worked (albeit low pressure, which you get used to in Sri Lanka). We had already eaten so can't comment on the food and the breakfast was not our best but fairly standard for Sri Lanka.

The pool area was also very nice though we arrived to late for swimming. Have to admit it was a bit buggy and there wasn't much choice at the bar but we had a good night's sleep and it was just what we needed!

This historic building was the perfect setting for a night in the Galle area. Its abundance in history, its authentic existence and the wonderful staff transports you to the first years of this villa. Loved every second. Thank you!

My wife and I spent our honeymoon at KK ands it was great. We spent two nights but wanted to stay longer.
A place truly to relax. Food was great and service was personalized. It's was relaxing as it was with more mature guests I think the two of us were the young guest who were there. But the treatment given was great. The open airiness and the silence was amazing

Good: Location is good. Try sea view on first Floor could be a better option- but we could not get as it was full. Owner/ Manager is pretty helpful and accommodative.

Not So Good: AVOID Standard Room as it is very basic and right on to the road, and dining and reception area. Read good reviews but room is pretty out dated and very basic.
Half Board meal is absolute waste, especially when we are so used to wide buffet spread in other similar hotels during our stay in Mirissa and Yala. Here, we had a choice of 1 main course and 1 beer.. Truly couldn't believe. However, the restaurant seems to be pretty popular in the area as they are full.

Room Tip: AVOID STANDARD ROOMs. TRY Sea facing rooms if available- They are in good demand i suppose.

If there is one reason to fly 11 hours to Sri Lanka then drive 2 more to Galle it is to have a passion fruit margharita made by Anil at Dick's Bar at the Sun House (there is another similarly charming barman, name forgotten, who cocktails are within a twist of lime of this genius). Couple of these then dinner on the beautiful terrace and all seems well with the world (and that was with Donald Trump picking up a couple of states).
And the Cinnamon suite is gorgeous.

Room Tip: Cinnamon suite lovely but no air con. other rooms do I believe. Every room quiet.

We had dinner at the Beach House. A stunning location directly on the beach. A large restaurant with outside and inside seating. Beware if eating outside as your chair will sink in to the sand!

An extensive menu. Price for 2 of us including Lion Beer came to less than 3,500 LKR

The quality and quantity of what we ate was average. Service was good

We had a great time visiting. Thank you very much for the hospitality. The manager and the rest of the staff is very helpful and friendly. This is a perfect place to visit to relax your mind and the price of the room also favorable. As always you have my 5 STAR rating for your excellent service.... !!!
