My room in this guest house was small and not at all attractive. There was only one window which looked out on the corridor. It was clean and everything worked, but I was happy that it was only a one night stay. I had dinner which was very average and resulted in a slightly upset stomach - my only one... More

This is an historic guest house in middle of the touristy part of Galle Fort. It has a pretty verandah to watch the world go by. The service provided by the owner and the manager was warm, friendly and helpful. WiFi available in lounge/restaurant/verandah. In keeping with an older property, the room and en-suite bathroom were small but clean and... More

A cute verandah overlooking a Galle forte lane way. It's clean and tidy and the host is incredibly helpful except when we arrived and he didn't warn me about the local scams which I almost got caught in right royally. Still he is helpful attentive and the service is otherwise faultless. Travel tips for local buses were very helpful.The rooms... More

Friendliness of the staff overwhelmed the shortcomings of the restaurant and rooms. Specifically, the rooms were small with barely enough room for a pair of twin beds and a couple of chairs. Then again, it's a guest house with a handful of rooms, not a hotel... The restaurant was ok, average food and uncomfortable chairs. There's a small sitting area... More

I didn't stay here, just had dinner. We picked this place at random while walking because we were hungry and dehydrated. Kind of wish I'd researched the area a little better beforehand. My experience at the restaurant was so average that I almost didn't bother posting a review. The fish was too boney. Felt like the food was overpriced for... More

Negatives - The downstairs rooms are very noisy as next to the kitchen. The mosquito nets do not cover the beds adquately. Beds are short if you're a tall person. Overcharged a little for room. Positives - Helpful management, and the place is clean.

This hotel is very well located in the very heart of Galle Fort. Hotel is not posh, but service is excellent and owner friendly. Food is home made, and rooms are clean, spacious and prices very economical. Good Deal !!!!

We stayed at Galle Fort Fifty Inn in March 2014. It's located in the Fort area tourist ghetto. The manager was very helpful and gracious, he is a nice man. The location of the hotel is good and the staff were very nice. Quite a lot of mosquitos around, but that is not the fault of the hotel, although the... More

The kindness of strangers. I would like fellow travelers to know that I received incredible kindness and generosity from my hosts at Galle Fort Fifty Inn, the owner Mr. Anura and the manager Priyanka. On the way to Galle, I was robbed of my wallet including credit cards. I had very little cash left. As you can imagine, it was... More

The location within the Galle Fort - is a great plus point, because we were able to walk around and explore with ease. The staff were welcoming, cordial and accommodating. Special mention must be made of Mr.Anura and Mr Priyantha. The beds were comfy and we slept well and a good Sri Lankan breakfast fortified us prior to checking out.... More
