We stayed at the Fort Printers over Christmas and had such a wonderful time. It was by far the best hotel we stayed at during out 2 week trip in Sri Lanka. Tijana and Peter could not have done more to make our stay better. They were so chatty and friendly without ever being intrusive. The hotel staff were also... More

This was by far the best hotel we stayed in while in Sri Lanka. It has a wonderful feeling of design and great style without being pretentious. My room was huge and the bed was so so comfortable. We ate every night in the hotel as the food and ambience were so beautiful - you had a choice of Sri... More

Beautiful boutique hotel in a lovely old building. Wonderful location inside the Fort. Super friendly management and staff. Great food at the restaurant by the pool. If you can, stay in the Headmasters suite, we loved it! Would love to go back one day. Galle is a lovely city and Fort Printers is the best place to stay.

This is a real gem of a hotel nestled among the streets of Galle which, in itself, is definitely worth a visit. Our only regret was to have booked for just one night as it would have been good to stay longer. The food was exquisite - a far cry from the buffets offered at other hotels in Sri Lanka.... More

We went in this hotel for 3 days in January. The persons who welcomed us, Peter, then Marion (We presume) were very kind and helpfull.

We have been warmly welcomed by the managers. The hotel is a nice building dating from the Dutch colonial period and is really well located. It is very well maintained and the staff is very careful. Our room was very nice. The breakfast was good as well. Congrats!

Our family had a great stay in The Fort Printers. The weather was rainy, and hopefully we could appreciate the very cosy accommodation of this hotel. We felt like home reading books in the large living room sofas... The rooms are spacious, beds are just perfect and the bathrooms very large. The house is beautiful, the decoration very refined and... More

Wow! What a shame we only stayed for a day and a half but what an end to our 16 days travelling through India and Sri lanka. The best hotel we stayed at by far. From the very beginning we had a fabulous little introduction from Peter about the hotel and where it was located inside the old fort at... More

We had a great time stayingin Fort Printers - the building itself is stunning, and the room was beautiful. The food was all excellent - easily the best place we ate in Galle - and covers both Sri Lankan classics like rice and curry, and modern European dishes. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I can't imagine a better... More
