“Stayed 2 nights as part of a 13 night tour of Sri Lanka. The building is a lovely example of old colonialism. Room was clean and tidy without the modern touches except for air con (but that suited the style and us). We had a room on the top floor with great views if you looked out across the bay”
“Staying here really ought to have been a great experience. The location equidistant between Galle town and Unawatuna was convenient. The building itself and the furniture in the public areas were quite lovely. However except for the waiters who tried their best the staff had little interest in enhancing our stay. On one occasion we had to chase up the”
“We stayed in this hotel because it was more moderately priced than others in the Galle area and because of its very good position overlooking the Sea. We were not disappointed although the rooms though clean are rather basic (no TV). The staff are friendly and helpful. During our one night stay we had dinner in the restaurant and there”
“About 20 years ago this was one of the best hotels in Sri Lanka and although still OK its a little dated and rough around the edges now.

Overall for the price I think it is a great deal”

An English captain built this estate that has been converted into a romantic getaway run by Kumar with relaxed charm and attentiveness to ones every need. Not to be missed on any trip to Galle. Lapping waves of the bay made me sleep”
“I stayed here with my 14 year old son for two nights last August it was a bit of nostalgia for me as I had grown up in Sri Lanka and we quite often used to stay here as children As I remembered from those days the view from the balconies overlooking the sea is stunning and it is”
“I really want to give the Closenberg Hotel a big write up. It was really really nice and extremely good value for money not sure how they could offer this quality for the price. The rooms are beautifully furnished. The bedding was absolutely sensational with mosquito nets and really nice well designed sheets and very comfortable beds. The linen”
“Our stay at this hotel was booked by a friend a local medical specialist. The setting was outstanding with beautiful views on three sides and a sea view from the balcony of our bedroom. The room itself could best be described as adequate but it was clean and free from wildlife. The ensuite bathroom was Ok and the bed the”
