We had a wonderful time at Yara. Even during the Covid 19, they were operating. restaurant and bar was of course closed due to the situation. The caretaker was very helpful and kind. we got a very quiet room. No disturbance. The hotel had been maintained well. Room was clean and attractive.

This is an all round nice place which is ideally located to explore Fort Galle. The staff is helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast was fairly good. It is not cheap but it is a very pleasant place to stay in.

Room was spacious, bathroom was big. Better if there was a mirror in the bedroom since ladies prefer a mirror in the room. Food was excellent, specially enjoyed the rice and curry was delicious.staff very friendly always giving that extra mile.

The hotel is great. Clean, with spacious rooms and nice atmosphere. The typical breakfast is amazing. Make sure you ask the waiter to teach you how to eat that properly (like, use your hands, not the fork). The experience would be even better! But also, I want to share a super nice moment. In Galle we bought a nice stuffed monkey for my daughter in law (5 months old). She loved it so much that cried every time we were taking away from her. Long story short, the hotel staff went to buy other 4 monkeys, packed them and shipped to me in Europe! All of this despite the pandemic related issues and the fact that I forgot the exact shop. They have been AMAZING!! Faith in humanity restored! The next time we'll go to Galle we'll sure go back here!
