“Not our first stay”

Reviewed 23 Apr 2015

Once more stayed at The Well House. Location is easy for the whole area, especially if you have your own transport. if not everywhere is a short Tuk Tuk ride away or a 30 minute walk, unless you want the beach which is 30 seconds away. It now has a pool, the perfect cooler. Elegant decor, well maintained and very clean. Food prepared by Dimatu is delicious and his range of dishes extensive. he will even organise a barbecue if thats your desire. Peaceful, private and everything is done to make your stay enjoyable

“A delicious stay”

"The Well House" is an absolutely magnificent place. Placed in front of the sea with a beautiful garden of coconut palms, the house offers peace and comfort. The spirit of the place is modern and exotic, a truth travel for the spirit. The attendants are attuned to customers and the reception is up to the villa: Smart and relaxed.

This was my second time in The Well House. The innefable charm of the place hit me again. The great elegance of the whole property (the owner designed it entirely), the gentleness of the staff, the talent of the cook, the extraordinary location of the place (less than 10 minutes from both majestic Galle Fort and swinging Unawatunna beaches, 50 meters from the ocean), all this grants to The Well House the poetic and unforgettable impression of a dream come true.

Having stayed here three times in the last month says it all. Knut has done a magnificent job of creating such an idylic place to stay in a remarkably quiet but central location for both Galle and Unawatuna. It is more like staying in a comfortable home where everything you need is close to hand. Staff are friendly but professional. Always nearby. It is not a hotel so dont expect to be fawned over. Enjoy the freedom you would have at home but staff nearby to take away the strain. Bring your own food and drink, thats no problem. Order what ever you wish to be cooked for you at lunch or dinner from Dimi the onsite chef who will shop and prepare your meals or visit Galle or Unawatuna by Tuk Tuk to sample the local restaurants.King fisher highly recommended on Unawatuna beach. Talking of beach, its a few meters away. Just be careful of the currents as they are surprisingly strong. All three rooms have a strong design identity, depends on the space you require. The smallest is as comfortable as the the largest, amazingly well designed to get the maximum from a small space. Not for those of you who are not so good on your feet though, you would need the larger rooms. Al in al a great place to stay for those who appriciate design and comfort in a very relaxed style.

“A special place - rare and precious”

Reviewed 23 Mar 2014

Very nicely decorated but not "show off", you feel this house is yours. Excellent geographical location. Although the house is near the south express way, it is a very silent place. Being 50 meters away from the beach, the evenings are cradled only with the sweet melody of the waves and the strong songs of the fishermen. It is a house with a view over the Ocean and -across the bay- the shining ramparts of Galle Fort will appear to you in the sunset as a sumptuous opera stage setting.

“A little oasis of style and comfort with a warm and welcoming se”

Loved our stay! The location convenient to Galle and to beaches. General service was good, very low key and if they didn't do anything you had expected, you only had to ask. The accommodation was beautiful and the communal area was very comfortable and stylish. Staff very friendly and well mannered with an up and coming good cook! We were fortunate to meet Knut who is a man of many talents and good tast. I would definitely recommend anyone to stay who enjoys a place with a touch of but not over the top.

“Best villa in Galle/ Unawatuna”

Reviewed 20 Mar 2014

The Well House has it all! Short way to the beach. And few minutes in a tuktuk brings you to Galle centre or all the nice beaches surrounding Galle; Vijya beach, Unawatuna, Jungle beach and many more. The staff is very nice and Dimuthu makes very good food :-) I miss it all :-) If you want to eat out it is only two minutes walk to Coco Bay hotel. There it is also nice to sit and watch the sun go down. I am looking forward to my third trip to the Well House in February 2015!

Response from the owner Dear Kitty, Thank you for your comments we, the staff at the well house really enjoyed during your stay. We are counting our days to see you soon in Sri Lanka. Wish you all the best! Best Regards, The well house team.

“Great location”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2014

We had a comfortable enough stay at the Well House. Just loved being a short tuk tuk ride from Galle and Unawatuna. Beds were comfy. Some electrical issues plagued our stay, though the staff was responsive to address them. We are fairly demanding customers, since we have rented many times before.

Response from the owner Dear Brenda, It was so nice having you at the well house and thank you very much for your precious comments. We are looking forward to see you at the well house in the coming future. Best Regards, Well House Team
