The family room we had was not so nice : No window; too small. Bathroom very basic. There is a small room with a very tiny staircase for a child, but it is very very small, so not enough to be called a family room. On the positive side : the owners (muslim family) are very nice. The breakfast is... More

Cannot fault this place at all. Beautiful location with my room looking out at the fort walls and sea! Stunning! Rooms were very spacious and clean and staff were so so friendly! Roof terrace was absolutely amazing - panoramic views of the fort area. Would recommend this to everyone!

Sunset and sunrise from your balcony! Add to that a commanding view of the old Dutch Fort ramparts on the sea. There is nothing more you would need to look for in Galle Fort. And please do not miss the breakfast! It's fabulous! And do prefer the Sri Lankan breakfast! The owner of the place makes the breakfast for you... More

Rampart view is very good place to stay. Its in very good place right next to rampart and south coast. Although the mosquito net was quite bad and we got few mosquito bites. The running couple is very nice and helpful. We had a very good stay here.

Really cool location inside the fort with great view of the sea and the fort. Tried the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast which was really yummie (it was actually the only place we've been too that served real traditional breakfast), and we had it outside so we could enjoy the wonderful view.

Great old hotel with run of the mill food and a dated atmosphere. Take a look if you want to see what colonial resthouses used to look like! Quite rundown but charmingly so! It feels like it is as old as the fort itself!

This place had great food but the service was extremely slow. We had to ask for menu's drink and the bill multiple times. Given they were busy but at the same time workers would pass us by and say nothing. If you have time a great place to eat with a great view of the Indian Ocean.

We spent 3 wonderful nights and enjoyed our stay. The hosts were kind, charming and were able to accommodate the mobility issues of my mum by providing a room on the ground floor and also serving meals in their dining room. The location was perfect - so close to the ramparts and the ocean. In the mornings we watched the... More
