I can't imagine there being a better place in Galle. Peaceful. Quiet. Lovely owner. She was so nice to us, my wife was pregnant and even let us stay a bit longer whilst we waited for our taxi as she wasn't feeling well. What a lovely human being! We were welcomed with drinks and a hotel towel. Breakfast was amazing. Staff are really nice. Highly recommend.

Lovely boutique hotel
Perfect place to chill, excellent hosts and so relaxing, great pool. Shame no facility for making tea/coffee in room. Evening meal on first night a bit underwhelming, but excellent on second night- not sure which is norm. Very good breakfast. Wi-fi unreliable to non existent, even in public areas - but then that’s not why you stay here, although frustrating if you need to make forward plans. Would have stayed longer!!

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The place is wonderful, the hosts and staff are very kind and attentive and the food is delicious. In sum, a perfect start of our holidays! We therefore highly recommend the Niyagama House and will definitely come back when we are in Sri Lanka again.
