After 2 weeks in Sri Lanka this is possibly the worst meal we have had. There is cats surrounding the tables whilst you eat.... More

My fellow travelers in my group had cockroaches climbing on their mosquito net and it was dropping water in their bed from the ceiling after the rain. The kitchen is... More

Clean basic room (bed with mosquito net like many places in Galle, nightstand, western bathroom with shower combined, my room also had small TV) for a $ lonely planet price. Not a tourist rip off like some of the other places. Very kind, thoughtful staff and owners, which I appreciated as a female traveling alone. Cute little restaurant. Good location.... More

Very nice hotel! . My husband and I stayed at Fort Fifty twice. The hotel is very good. Being in the center, next to the lighthouse, the ruins of the fort. The rooms are very comfortable and large. Very friendly staff. Maybe next year will come back to this hotel again.

The location of this property was great...in the middle of the fort. It was lovely strolling around the streets looking at all of the building and shops. However that was about where it stops. Shower and toilet very...very...very cramped. Room was a good size however the air conditioner dripped all night onto the bed. Was located in the room furthest... More

My husband and I were looking for a last minute hotel and while searching someone from the staff (very kind, as everybody in the hotel) stopped us to propose us available rooms. The rooms are classic (bed, net, small private bathroom) but smelling humidity like crazy. But because it seemed somehow clean, the price was OK (3000 Rs) and it... More
