Five of us visited the Galle Fort Hotel for lunch. The waiter who took our lunch order had a clueless air and everything had to be explained twice. slowly. We ordered the spicy grilled chicken wings with mango salsa which were Rs450+++ and the fish cakes also for the same price. We received 4 chicken winglets with no seasoning, a... More

After two weeks of touring Sri Lanka this was our final stop to recharge our batteries and what better place to do so. The atmosphere of the hotel was very relaxing, the staff very helpful and the room amazing. We stayed in the Admiral Cheng Ho Suite as there were three of us and my son was very happy to... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights at the Galle Fort Hotel as part of our honeymoon tour around Sri Lanka. Sadly it was right at the end of our three week trip as the next stop on the itinerary was Colombo, heading back to Blighty. Having stayed at a number of luxury boutique hotels during our time in...

This was a really nice little gem in the Galle Fort. Very central to walking to the coast and to see the Fort. We had a lovely room - overlooking the small pool at the rear of the building. The room itself was big and airy with air-con. The shower and toilet at the back of the room were really... More

Had a lovely stay here due to a fantastic gentleman called Oliver, whom I believe may be the manager or tour guide manager for the hotel. He had such a warm and hospitable way about him, it almost made me forget that we were paying $400 a nights US for a room that was sadly lacking. The room was a... More

I splurged and paid for a night here as a surprise for my boyfriend's birthday. The hotel staff were very kind to accommodate 1 night stay when they usually require 2 night minimum. We paid for a basic room and were very happy with the 2 floor loft layout. We received fancy drinks upon arrival and enjoyed that the hotel... More

My husband and I were disappointed in the Galle Fort Hotel. We had been looking forward to our stay but after 1 night had to book out and book in elsewhere. We found the room (Porcelain Suite) dirty and dark. The mosquito netting over the bed had not been cleaned and the curtains were also quite grubby. The room did... More
