Stayed here for 1 night during our Sri Lanka tour, it is a beautiful and relaxing place where we were made very welcome. The rooms are spacious, clean and ours had a view of the fort wall and the ocean. Galle is a beautiful place especially the fort, I just wish we had more than 1 night there. If you... More

Located in a beautiful old building inside of the Galle fort, the small "Fort Bliss" hotel is very cozy and you have only a few minutes to walk, if you want to explore the historic sights which are around. The room I had, was cosy and comfortable with a big four-poster bed and a mosquito net. I had a direct... More

Brilliantly located adjacent to sea wall and so right in the heart of the old fort. We were warmly welcomed and offered refreshments before being shown to our rooms. No tea making facilities but a tray of freshly brewed tea was provided whenever requested (without charge). Comfortable (four poster) beds, well furnished rooms and good bathrooms. Advice given on local... More

We only had one night at this lovely, cosy and comfortable B&B. We were immediately made welcome and shown to our fabulous rooms. Our youngest daughter was delighted to have one of the sumptuous rooms all to herself. We were offered tea and coffee on request at any time and sat on the balcony looking over towards the walls of... More

Travelled from colombo to Galle a picturesque coastal town with heavy Dutch influences from old colonial days and stayed at the cosy Fort Bliss! The journey itself took around 3hrs on the train and cost about 360 rupees for 2 people (about 80p each). The journey itself is amazing all along the coast! The fort is a 10 minute walk... More

We had two nights here in this great B&B. it is on a narrow street in the old fort area of Galle immediately adjacent to the sea wall. It looks an old place from the outside, the front door is a split "barn" style straight into a quaint living room. Behind this is an enclosed garden and yard area where... More

The house is ideally located in the fort, but very quiet. The staff will warmly welcome you, and make sure you feel as if staying by friends. Tea offered at 5 o'clock, you can also share a drink at night and discussed about the history and highlights of Sri Lanka. I would certainly go back if I return to galle!

We stayed here for one night. The rooms very good, nice and clean. The toilets are pretty good too. But for proper ventilation you may need to open the window a bit although some may be facing indoor, but as they are upstairs no one can see. Parking can be an issue for some but obviously there are no private... More

Tucked away in a narrow lane inside the old fortress, is the tiny Fort Bliss hotel. When we decided to stay after trip advisor ratings contacted the hotel through email immediately we got reply from Ms Tameez about availability booking was done fast - That start was followed by -hard to believe facts.
