Great location in the main fort area. Fast reliable wifi - wow (is this a dream?). The staff were super helpful and friendly. The concrete floors & counters aren't the cutest, but it's fine as a crash pad for a couple of nights.

The Galle Fort Hotel oozes style and tranquility. It's been tastefully and sympathetically decorated. The quiet and calm of the staff encourages the tranquil atmosphere. During our four nights stay the new GM was endeavouring to staying one night in each room to ensure he could iron out any short falls, right down to the provision on soap dishes. That... More

Stayed here on a two nights visit over the weekend and was pleasantly surprised by the calm elegance of this boutique hotel. The loft suite is fantastic...it screams out rest and relaxation with vigor. The room is splendidly designed, spacious and comfortable. It lack two essentials, a TV and mini bar. But, the Galle Fort complex aptly compensates as it... More

We stayed elsewhere but had dinner here one night (we made a reservation in advance, which is necessary during peak season). Highly recommended! Great atmosphere - inside the main courtyard near the pool, good service. The menu was limited but everything was nicely done and well-presented. In general we were unimpressed with the dining experiences in Galle but this was... More

If anyone really like to get the taste of old posh history then I will suggest them to stay in Galle Face hotel, built in 1846 and people like princess of Yugoslavia, Prince Philip, Che, Sir Roger Moore, Queen Ingrid of Denmark, Empress Eugenie of France, Emperor of Japan, Richard Nixon and many more like them stayed in that hotel,...

It was quite long ago that I was here but its etched in my memory because of the uniqueness of this hotel. Built in the fort itself, the interiors were amazingly beautiful. The architecture accommodated parts of the castle so as to maintain the beauty and history of it. My room literally had a bathroom made of stone! The balcony... More

My jazz project, Noctua, was recently the guest of the Galle Fort Hotel, as we were playing for the Galle Jazz Festival. Needless to say, the personnel at Galle Fort Hotel treated us with unparalleled hospitality and warmth, the likes of which I haven't experienced in any other hotel, and I can say that with confidence as I'm a musician...

My best friend and I spent a (too short) 3 nights at this hotel and it was just what the doctor ordered!
