A friendly family owned guesthouse well situated within the old city walls. As this is part of the old town and a UNESCO world heritage site the rooms are a little cramped but this can be overlooked. they have a tuc tuc and will take one on day trips.

We stayed in the top room and had a lovely view over the rooftops. Air conditioning and a fan. The mosquito nets and number of cushions did seem a tad ridiculous given the small size of the room though... No dinner option available. Bathroom tap slightly poor. The central location was ideal.

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...
