Stayed here for 2nights in April. The rooms are perfectly clean and fresh feeling. The location is perfect with the Galle fort and lighthouse just a short walk away. There are also many lovely restaurants on the same street. The staff were very welcoming and helpful!

My girlfriend and I stayed two nights at the Fort Inn Guest House and had a very nice stay. The room was slightly dated but very comfortable and perfect for our needs (good shower, mosquito net, sitting area). The Fort Inn is located in a beautiful old house, right in the middle of the Fort area. The breakfast was decent,... More

Close to restaurants and shops and only a stone's throw from the Fort Wall (where I watched sunrise and sunset) this is a simple, clean and affordable guesthouse. Hot showers, comfy bed, clean rooms, mosquito netting, fridge and wi-fi make for a pretty perfect stay in my book! The rooms may be small by some people's standards, but considering you're... More

Stayed here for one night, the location is great, the price is fantastic, but neither me or my partner slept very well because we found the bed a little hard. That being said, we paid very little for a good room and the people working there were lovely too. They arranged a tuk tuk driven by their brother to mirissa,... More

We stayed at this guesthouse for just one night whist in Galle, though we could've stayed much longer had our Itinery allowed. From first meeting, the staff are very welcoming but not 'overbearing'. The young girl who greeted us allowed us to ask any questions and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The location is great,... More

The hotel is conveniently located inside the Fort. However, the bedrooms are very small, and would need refurbishment, especially the bathroom. The A/C does not work properly and is not cooling down the room much. The hotel is located on a noisy street, and the Prayer from the Mosque woke us up in the early morning. The stairs to reach...

We moved here from the Mango House which was booked up going forward. It was around the corner. It suited us because we could sit and endlessly watch the street life from the 1st floor balcony where the excellent breakfast was also taken. The room was good for the price Rs3000 with fan nets and air con. The shower was... More

We spent 2 nights in Galle and we loved this place. It is in Galle fort, close to a bunch of restaurants. The room was great. We had a really good breakfast in the morning. From this guest house, we took a tuk tuk to pass an afternoon on the beach of Unawatuna (only 400 rupees to get there).

This hostel is great value for money. The wifi is great, the rooms are clean and spacious and it has a great rooftop area. The family that owned the place were very friendly. The location in the fort is perfect, very close to lots of cafes and shops.
