Booked a room here based on some favorable reviews and the cheap price, but left feeling distinctly unimpressed. Questionable cleanliness, cramped rooms, an uncomfortable bed, a poor shower and an air conditioner that didn't work made our stay there pretty miserable. On the plus side, the staff/owners were very nice, and the location is great - then again Galle Fort... More

We booked at Fort Inn, but on arrival were told it was full and we were led to the Secret Palace, also owned by the same people. We can't comment on the Fort Inn as we never went inside, so look at my review on Secret Palace, but it's worth leaving this review because there's a good chance you'll be... More

We stayed here after escaping pretty sharpish from Colombo! The owners are just lovely and very helpful. We stayed in the top room and had our own terrace that looked over the rooftops of Galle Fort, really pretty. The bed was really comfy, if a little large for the room, but after being in India with some questionable matresses, I... More

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
