The Galle Fort is a great place to base yourself in if you want to try a variety of different food and like wandering around little street, galleries and shops. This property is situated just off the infamous peddlers in which was great for us since we had only 1 night to spare.

The Galle Heritage Villa is a large, 4-roomed colonial house, converted to a boutique hotel. It is located on a narrow road, within the Fort premises. Although its on 'Lighthouse Street', there's absolutely no view of the lighthouse from the hotel.

The location is superb. Is very near to Galle Lighthouse and few forts.
The ambience and interiors are very pleasant and soothing. Parking is available in case own vehicle is used to travel around.
The cost is also economical.
There is indian restaurant nearby.
