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

Guesthouse located in the centre of Galle Fort - very easy to find. We got `tuktuk`for 250 rupies ( way back - 150 - became `so smart` :) We arrived to inn a little bit early - well the owners - so sweet couple - were giving us so warm welcome so from very first till last minute here we... More

Not sure why this place has received good reviews. We arrived later in the day to find that rooms around this place were full, perhaps the reason for the price that we paid. Dangerous steps up to the top floor room with balcony. The view was nice but the room left much to be desired. It was dark and dominated... 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

Spent three nights here without any dramas or problems. The staff were friendly and genuinely happy to see you and chat about your day. They couldn't resist an opportunity to upsell tours, taxi rides and the like, but it was never a hard sell. I had the room on the first floor, the one with the funny little seating area... More

This cute little guest house is great value for money. The rooms are small but very clean and the family that own it literally couldn't do more for you. The shower is powerful and hot and it's in a great location. Defiantly recommend :-)

Their gallery of photos here gives a clue as what to expect. So many pillows and cushions and extra blankets and teddy bears, but not enough attention paid to the hardware. But when all is said and done, it's an okay place to stay. The family owners are all very pleasant and helpful, and they cook up a tasty breakfast... More

This guest house is beautifully situated in atmospheric and elegant Galle fort, is clean, with a few spacious and comfortably furnished rooms, a little fridge to cool your bots of Lion lager, and a small terrace overlooking the street scene. The family who run the GH are easygoing, and could not be nicer, and the prices are very reasonable, especially... More
