Very friendly staff, and a great Sri Lankan breakfast. Stayed for 4 nights. The rooms are a little tired, and no AC, only a fan. We really enjoyed our stay though. Nice balcony, and we also had a room at the top with small roof garden.

The rooms are good, nothing special, but certainly nothing wrong. Its location is a great central hub for your Fort explorations. The real reason to crash here however is to meet the staff that runs the place. We stayed two nights and had a blast hanging in the reception area and watching some local movies and sharing food with the...

Centrally located in old city; non-a/c room very stuffy, not particularly clean; wakened at 0430 by imam on p.a; indifferent service (manager disappeared after first day, leaving young guys in charge); no one there at 0600 to open front door, despite having arranged for early check-out to catch train.

I enjoyed my stay in central located Fort Inn Guesthouse just because of the friendly host and his friend. His friend showed us around by tuktuk.

It's in the heart of the fort which is a lovely place to stay. The room we stayed in was very tiny and the staircase leading up are quite narrow. The family is quite friendly and also have a tuk-tuk which you may use to go around Galle.

We stayed here for two nights. It is centrally located in the fort district. The rooms are reasonable but small they have a good mattress shower and air cond. I give five stars because of the genuine hospitality shown by the host family. They were very helpful and friendly

Welcoming, friendly, and helpful staff. The room was charming thanks to a kind of podium with a table and 2 chairs. No view from the window, though. Clean bathroom. Quiet place, though the main tourist activities are around (restaurants, juice bars etc.)

Fantastic location on Pedlars Lane. Cobbled stone lane ways, just a minute or two walk from the Forte wall. Such atmosphere. The family is lovely and helpful. Breakfast consisted of a mixture of fresh fruit and toast. Romantic
