The positives first: As others have said the staff are very friendly and helpful. They also organise taxis. The location is as great. Breakfast on the balcony was very good with lots of fresh fruits. We had the top floor room with a large private balcony with good views. Very steep steps to get there though (not a problem for...

We stayed two nights here in December 2016. When booking for this time of year we found Galle to be very expensive if you want to stay inside the Fort area, which we did since we only had one full day to explore Galle. It was a pleasant surprise to find this highly-rated guest house at £37 per night ($45...

We booked 3 nights at the Fort Inn as it got very good reviews. We left after the 2nd night and just lost the money we paid for the room as we could not bear to spend a 3rd night in this establishment. The facts: 1. The bedding had holes and stains. 2. The shower hose was broken, but held...

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. I can totally recommend to book this tuktuk tour which goes outside of Galle. There you visit some temples, a turtle hatchery, a tee plantation and a herbal garden. It was for a reasonable...

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.
