Hotel is about a 10 minute tuk tuk from Galle train station, hidden behind a large gate - make sure to ring the bell to get let in. It is a hidden oasis though, its airy, white and concrete leading onto a lovely garden with pool and direct access to the beach. We paid a bit more for a balcony room which I would recommend as the garden rooms don't face onto the ocean. Our room was very comfortable. Only slight downside is there is no back up generator so when there is a power cut (common in Sri Lanka) everything stops working, including the water upstairs. Staff were very helpful and organised a whale watching trip for us. Food in the restaurant was good, with a good range including local food.
