Frangipangi Motel Galle May 21, 2013
From the street outside, the motel building looks very imposing with four tall and big pillars supporting the foundation of the house and small balcony in the middle. It looks great with green garden and several tables and chairs in front of it so can do people watching or just sit with a book and relax. Inside the building also looks good with winding staircase and carving wood along the edges and spacious two living rooms and one small pond with fish in it which leading to the rooms on the first floor. It feels really nice, cool, and comfortable.

I choose the cheapest room with air condition which cost 2500 rupee per night without breakfast, and the room itself is quite small but sparkling clean and brand new (I even smell the paint from the bathroom). It has one queen bed covered with mosquito net, one dresser and chair and a big bathroom. Unfortunately no soap or shampoo provided in this place, but towel is provided. The water pressure was good and hot water work well, which I don’t really need it as it is just too hot with Sri Lanka weather and I tend to have cold shower to cold me down after day sightseeing and to wash away the stickiness and sweat from the ocean air. My room only has window which open to the hallway, so not much view here and I prefer to closed the window and turn the air condition on so the room is cool.

The owner is friendly, fast and efficient with check in and gives good information of the places to visit in Galle, and I even borrow their knife to cut mango which I bought from the fruits market outside the fort.

Despite the good looks of the building, it was quite noisy at night time especially when other guest turn on their air condition and I can hear loud noise of the cooling machine just outside at the hall way not far from my room. It was pretty hard to sleep without ear plug on. Even with ears plug on, I couldn’t sleep well and keep waking up in this place. Might be I am too fussy and prefer to have a quite room. If you are heavy sleeper and noise wouldn’t bother you, this place might be okay, as it is inside the fort where all the attractions located and plenty of cafe and restaurants nearby, but if you are light sleeper like me, probably best to find somewhere else quieter.

I didn’t try their breakfast as I have to leave early to catch my bus, but the menu seem very reasonable price, they charge 500 rupee for American breakfast which consist of four toast, bread, jam, two eggs, juice, plate of fruits, tea or coffee, and reasonable price for dinner. The motel also able to provide three wheeler to go to bus station or other sightseeing around the area with reasonable price. Just ask and they will answer.
