We made it our second home for five days during kids school break. Perfect place to relax and sleep, very spacious rooms, good service and right near everything in side the fort. It's best to use nearby lighthouse hotel for main meals (if you choose half board or full board), else there are plenty of good places to eat near... More

Four-bed villa in Galle Fort. Good for exploring the fort. We had the room near the front door. It was fine for a family of four top-to-tailing and not noisy at all. Nice big shower and extremely comfortable beds. Mosquito nets provided on the twin four-posters. Friendly and helpful manager directed us to an excellent local restaurant for lunch.

We arrived with an an extra guest in tow to which the hotel accommodated with an extra bed. Service was excellent and everyone was extremely helpful. We were settled in the rooms downstairs, it's true that there isn't much light in there and thank God, it was nice reprieve from the sweltering heat of Galle which we found difficult to... More

We stayed at the Galle Heritage Villa by accident as our intended accomodations turned out to be inappropriate for our 3 person tour group. The Heritiage Villa was not expecting us but neverlheless did everything they could to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Food was brought to us for breakfast and 1 dinner from the Jetwing Lighthouse and was... More

It's a villa and not a hotel, so the amenities lack somewhat. However great location in the centre of the fort. Only three rooms I think. Ours was really nice, great size, with a comfy bed and all the things you would expect. Think I would have preferred a hotel as we were the only ones staying that night and... More

Located within the fort with a short walk to fortress wall and sea. Unfortunately our room was right next to the main entrance and reception area. You can clearly hear people walk past, the phone ringing etc. The bathroom door didn’t shut properly, nor lock. The toilet didn't flush properly and the shower continuously lost water pressure and hot water.... More

Well what can i say, the Galle Heritage villa is not bad but it certainly is not worth 130 GBP per night. The villa itself is nice and in a decent location inside the fort however i think it is trying to be something more than what it is considering the other surrounding places are backpackers inns. My first room... More

Went on work and stayed for 2 nights. Wish it was longer. It's a fantastic location and great setting. The rooms upstairs are large and spacious. The toilets are also quite spacious and nicely built. It's mostly an old fashioned house, like most places in the Galle fort; making it very homely. The staff are friendly and go out of... More

A very nice building, nice and large rooms (especially upstairs) but it feels a bit like being in a private home where the parents have gone out and have left you alone with their adolescent kids. Radio blaring, people hanging around in sporting clothes caring more about their own breakfast than their clients. Although you are asked for the time... More

This villa is located inside the Galle Fort. Rooms are exceptionally large even the bathrooms. Rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. Bathrooms are lovely. We were occupying one of upstair bedrooms. Staff was brilliant, very friendly and true ambassadors. They go out of their way to help you. You have the choice whether to have breakfast at Light House Galle... More
