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

We stayed here for one night in the only room on the ground floor. The location is excellent, inside the Fort area of Galle with the Indian Ocean and the Galle Lighthouse literally around the corner. The room was clean, and in one of the prettiest (recently renovated) buildings of Galle. What made the difference, however, was the manager of... More

We only had a night stay but we were made to feel very welcome. Breakfast was served in a very pleasant room and included a delicious smoothie! Room was nicely appointed and overlooked the sea. Good location

Tucked away in a narrow lane inside the old fortress, is the tiny Fort Bliss hotel. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and then shown to our lovely rooms. This is one of the few hotels that is actually better in reality than the photos you see online. It is quaint, calm, welcoming very beautiful and a lovely... More

A lovely little B & B hotel situated in Galle Fort itself where Mr Aman takes great care of his guests. The hotel is very clean and has a very peaceful ambience. Excellent service/breakfast and lovely bedrooms make this hotel an excellent choice for a stay in Galle.

Beautiful refurbished building within the fort - so easy to then amble within the citadel and soak up the ambiance. Excellent service with comfortable beds and a great shower - highly recommend a stay here, only wish we had booked 2 nights instead of 1.

The guesthouse is located within a few steps from the fort walls where you get the best views of the sunrise and sunset as well as within walking distance to restaurants and shops. There are only 5 rooms in total so there is a very homely and cosy atmosphere. We stayed in the end room on the second floor which... More
