We chose this hotel after reading other sterling reviews and we were not disappointed. We are a family with 2 young children and we came for a short break of 2 nights from Thailand. We have stayed in many hotels around the world and this room really stood out for its uniqueness and excellent size (including a separate living room... More

We stayed at the Fort Printers for 2 nights last week. Peter runs a great establishment. Great friendly service, good food and wonderful location within the fort makes this hotel a really good place to stay in Galle. Definitely recommend the Fort Printers!

Great place, nice big rooms, lovely manager and staff. Food was great, very relaxing I have stayed on the Galle Fort before which was also good. Its nice being right in the centre of the Fort so you can wander out to shops and restaurants.

We stayed at the Fort Printers for two nights while in Galle. This has been the best hotel stay in our three week Sri Lanka trip. The hotel was lovely, our room in the new wing was spacious. There was a bit of street noise outside in the mornings but nothing that greatly upset us. The set breakfast was served... More

Stayed for two nights. Room was in the new wing. Spacious and very clean. Some may call the rooms sparse, but we liked it. Great facility in the lounge areas and the kitchen with complimentary soft drinks, much needed in very hot Galle. Cute little pool but permanently monopolised by a couple however we didn't have time nor the inclination... More

Out all of the places we've stayed in Sri Lanka, from Negombo to Harabana to Kandy to Nuwara Eliya, this was the best out of them all! This tranquil boutique hotel in Galle is a refreshing retreat. The decor is beautiful and modern. There is a pool in the court yard prefect to cool down in. It's not massive but... More
