Arrived late in the evening June 2015, and was very happy to get a room without booking - definitely try to lower the price, especially if coming in low season. The owner is very nice and friendly young lady, the house is an old building, but my room was clean and simple, with A/C and hot water. Not very big... More

I was happy with this place. The staff is nice and helpful. The room was not big but as all I needed was a bed, it was good. Same for the bathroon. Everything was very clean. I liked the balcony to chill and take advantage of a calm spot. Really well located too. Not too many things to complain about.

We stayed 1 night and the location was perfect easy to find and your in the heart of the Fort! The family were so welcoming and helpful! The room was a let down, but there was hot water and air conditioning which worked well. Unfortunately there was a storm the night we stayed and the water was coming through the... More

A very disappointing room. The fort inn was recommended in the lonely planet book and had good reviews on trip advisor but turned out to be a disappointment. The floors were clean but the mosquito net was very dirty and the amenities (fridge) were also dirty and not in very good working condition. The bathroom was bad too. The AC... More

Couldn't understand the good reviews it had. Very dated building in a good location. Bathroom was very basic, room was dark with limited space to put your bags. Arrived late afternoon and didn't get a chance to compare it to other guesthouses. Manager lowered the rate in an attempt to get us to stay another night, found an amazing clean,... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Fort Inn. I think that we may have had the best room-- so we were very comfortable. This is a very old building and part of the old wall was part of the wall in our room. The room had a fridge and an adequate bathroom. The breakfasts were okay. The best thing about... More

The guest house is inside the fort and has a common area on the second floor that is really nice to sit and watch people walking by. Breakfasts were good and rooms, while in a very, very old building, are clean and comfortable. Owners and staff were very kind and helpful.

This is a lovely guesthouse right in the centre of Galle Fort. Made even more wonderful by the staff who always have a smile on their faces. Rooms are clean and have fridge which is always good to keep your drinks cold. The balcony is a lovely place to just relax and watch the world go by. Wifi was limited... More

This is a family operated guest house. The owners live nearby within Galle Fort and at least one family member is always present. The location is in the middle of the fort and close to restaurants, bars and boutique retail therapy. While my room was on the small side, the bed was large and noticeably comfortable. A hearty breakfast is... More
