Well located, inside fort. The owners are very friendly and good host. It is a small charming place to stay in Galle. The breakfast is spectacular, is all homemade. Very original decoration with nice puppets, and old furnitures. It worth a visit.

We spent at the Le Jardin du Fort in Galle 4 days / 3 nights (family of 5 with 3 kids: 9, 4 and 1 y. old). We liked this place much! Galle is thanks to its fortress and colonial history a must to do in Sri Lanka. 3 nights were for us enough. We choosed this place, because we liked the reviews on TA. And also thanks to a prompt communication between us and the owner. What was great? Room, beds, bathroom, b-fast, cappucino, cleanliness, personal approach, kindness, value… Italian restaurant nexdoor is a great spot! Thx! Pavel and family

We had the best time here. It was such a brilliantly cosy room, and every detail was so well thought-out. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was nice (great shower). The hosts were so friendly and helpful with recommendations for the local area. They even organised a snorkelling trip for us which was lovely. The breakfasts were delicious too, with a nice range between local and European cuisine. It felt like a home away from home, and the location was perfect for our few days in Galle. We couldn't recommend this higher, if we returned to Galle we'd certainly go back to Le Jardin du Fort.

An absolute gem of a find. Perfect in every way. Le Jardin, is spotlessly clean, with rooms that contain all the home comforts. I didn’t want to get out of bed, they were so comfortable! Breakfast included a good choice, and a variety of breakfasts to suit most people. Our hosts Maneyika and Charles were both informative and helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend Le Jardin.

What a wonderful random find in Galle - I wish that we had found this beautiful and cozy accommodation during our two previous visits. From the moment one walks through the door the ambiance and character of this beautiful boutique hotel are sure to impress. The hosts Maneyika and Charles are wonderful and very welcoming - they make it their business to spend as much time as possible chatting to their guests on arrival which is such a lovely touch. The property is spotless and the rooms are delightfully decorated with a personal touch shining through in the decor. It was such a relaxing hotel with very comfortable beds and deluxe en-suite shower rooms. The breakfast was delicious - all home cooked including the breads. Again, I must emphasise the personal touch, warm welcome and local knowledge of the hosts which is so appreciated - well done Maneyika and Charles.

Beautiful small boutique hotel in the heart of Galle fort. The room was perfect as was the Sri Lankan breakfast and French pastries. Maneyika & Charles are great hosts and really went out of their way to make my stay amazing. If you are ever in Galle fort give this place a try you will not regret it

We had a lovely stay at this unique yet very beautiful place. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. The location is excellent & reflects the uber cool feel of the fort area. The hosts Charles and Maneyika were very warm and hospitable. They recommended us all the must go local places around. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Such a lovely and unique place. The entrance is like a little museum and you can find a lot of old wooden puppets and antique furniture. The room we had was upstairs and was designed with attention to detail. It wasn't to big but big enough for a couple. You just have to feel comfortable as there is no door to close the bathroom... so not too much privacy when sitting on the toilet ;-) The couple who owns the place were really helpful, friendly and interested!!! We asked for a couple of things and they just made it happen- we really appreciated this! The breakfast we had was really, really good and special compared to other hotels in Sri Lanka. There was real French coffee, original baked croissants, fresh fruit salad, Muesli AND brown bread!! Right at the opposite is a great shop with souvenirs and fashion, next to it is my favourite Italian restaurant. The Fort is a 5 min walk away. We loved it and find it the perfect hotel for a romantic getaway in the midst of the beautiful Galle fort. Thank you for the lovely stay.
