This is a very sympathetic and stylish renovation of a substantial old Dutch building: everywhere there are beautiful wooden floors and elegant furnishings - I was very taken by the large vases of purple lilies in the public areas. The couple who manage the hotel are superb - friendly and informative and in every way a pleasure to deal with.... More

Great location, charming setting, very helpful and courteous staff, quiet, large room, excellent wifi (supports streaming videos), AC works well, large shower plus claw-footed bathtub, pleasant pool. Nothing to criticize, good value for money, would stay there again on a future visit without a moment's hesitation. An unqualified yes!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during our recent stay in Galle. Two nights is probably enough in Galle and it was enhanced by our stay in this hotel. Beautifully presented outside with an air of understated luxury, the manager met us on arrival and gave us a tour of the building and grounds examining their history.... More

On arrival we were met by managers who were so kind to show us around the hotel and tell us the history of the printers and how they have converted it to what it is today. The hotel is completely let down by the photos online, it is beautiful in comparison to the photos, please get new photos to show... More

It is beautifully redone historical place with it' s stories yet offering all the comfort and charm. Very tastefully re-worked to accommodate protected historical requirements, keeping the place' spirit yet feel warm and modern touch. Service great, the only remark goes not to the hotel but the restaurant there - change the Chef! Cuisine does not honor this place, not... More

on entry this small boutique hotel is very classy. The staff are lovely and welcoming and we were shown around with a quick history lesson on the building which was really good. The rooms are lovely and spacious and most importantly clean. If it's not clean,we walk! If had to fault his place, they would only be petty. Eg- noisy... More

In an earlier life, this beautifully restored hotel was a school so each room is named after the subject taught in it! we stayed in the history room and it was spacious and comfortable. The furnishings and design are excellent and the court yard pool is a perfect place for breakfast or a wonderful evening meal.

Halle Fort is an amazing place. It is a living example of history; Portugese, Dutch and British. The Fort Printers reflects the ambience of the Fort internally and externally. We loved our welcome, explanation and tour about the history of the hotel, our room, dinner and breakfast. Absolutely delightful experience. Wandered right round the walls of the Fort and, thanks...

This boutique hotel is located in the old fort area of Galle and is a little oasis of calm away from the bustle just outside the door. The reception area is a little hard to find as the front part is a restaurant(meals are highly recommended) but our welcome from the bubbly local girl was very friendly and informative. The... More

A lovely hotel with friendly, welcoming staff. The rooms on the first floor are all large and airy that go up to the rafters (the rain will wake you when heavy). No bath but a large walk-in shower. As an old school the rooms are full of character, a lovely change from the bland, big chains you can get. Not... More
