Stayed here 1 night, and we hardly got any sleep. We are normally not fuzzy travellers, but this place is not worth spending money at. Our room was on the first floor, next to the kitchen/dish washing area, where they kept making noise at all odd hours. The room is small, moist, it basically stinks. We did not have extra... More

We stayed 2 nights at this place. May be we came from a beach resortish hotel from Bentota to here, thats why the rating. Actually no. Having travelled quite a bit, this place was a DUMP! The rooms were very dark and dingy in the first floor. Opening the windows meant getting all of the smell from the kitchen downstairs,... More

Poor service, mould in rooms, needs a facelift and I must say that I am surprised Intrepid uses this hotel. Definitely would not advise staying here. We all asked for bedding top sheets and they did not arrive.

This hotel was one of the worst I have ever stayed at. Our room on the ground floor was tiny, smelly and the bed sheets and pillow were dirty. Noise from the nearby kitchen carried on until well after midnight and included sounds of hacking and spitting. The bathroom is ridiculous... The shower was simply a hose over the toilet.... More

Didn't stay here, but came in for some food. I had the vegetable noodles, and they were awesome! Would certainly recommend! All the food seemed reasonable priced, and a lot cheaper than Bentota! Visit even for a drink and watch the world walk by!

This small family run guest house is right in the centre of Fort Galle which is a world heritage site. The guest house is quaint with compact rooms. We were on ground floor with only window facing onto internal passage from kitchen, which made it fairly noisy until the restaurant closed business late evening. The room was clean but dated...

Best attribute was the hotel is right in the middle of The Fort shopping area – so convenient. My room was adequate and quite spacious and the aircon kept the room wonderfully cool – the bathroom does need upgrading though – having a shower meant the whole bathroom got soaking wet. Positives – very helpful management, great location and the... More

Good value for money. Nothing negative to say. We spend only 3 nights, but the area was seen in that time. Staff was friendly and rooms were clean. Recomendable, breakfast was not including and highens the night cost a lot.
