A really excellent hotel. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable, and the host welcoming. For the price this was a really good deal. It is well located for seeing the old part of Galle, and the owner also provided us with excellent restaurant recommendations.

The hotel was in a nice location, within the walls of the fort, and within walking distance of many interesting shops and cafes. I found breakfast within a few blocks of the hotel, and beer just a block or two away. The room was brightly lit, with good AC and a fan. The bathroom was conveniently arranged, except that the...

We had the basic room, which didn't have a balcony or terrace, only a large window... The room had a slight damp smell to it when we arrived, we weren't shocked or overwhelmed... This is a tropical climate - if not for this little remark it would be 5 stars, based on the value for money. The larger room we... More

We throughly enjoyed our 3 night stay in Fort De 19 Villa. The owners were lovely and more than helpful! The guesthouse is like a home away from home, charming and nicely decorated. We stayed in the top room which had a massive four poster king sized bed draped with a mosquito net. The shared balcony was great to watch... More

We had a wonderful stay at Fort De 19. The house is nicely decorated, with loads of charm. The rooms are fresh and new, but feel homely. There's just 3 rooms available for guests and the other 3 are inhabited by the family of the owner. The owners are one of the other highlights of this place. They really make... More

This charming little guest house is absolutely a home away from home. Conveniently located just minutes away from the walls of the famed Galle Fort and the lighthouse around the corner, not to mention a variety of great restaurants and shops - if you're one to walk about in Galle this is the place to be. A very chatty and... More

We had a lovely room wtih a balcony over looking the fort ramparts. Perfect for watching the sunset and the locals playing cricket late afternoon. Comfortable bed, fan, aircon and good bathroom. It was clean, bright and quiet. The manager and his father (?) were very friendly and helpful. No breakfast, but there are plenty of places nearby you can... More
