Small room but comfortable bed with mosquito nets and small balcony. Large outside space with tea/coffee and guide books to browse through. Lovely man on reception etc. He also served a very nice breakfast. The hotel was very convenient to look around the fort.

Small hotel, but once you step inside garden you feel welcome. Very friendly and helpful staff. Small, but cozy room, with not perfect bathroom. 2,5 star standard of the room, does not explain high price. Great and tasty breakfast makes a different.

The courtyard and general style of the building is magnificent. Incredible location inside the stunning Fort area. Small but lovely rooms. Lovely staff, great breakfast. We would most definitely stay here again.

My wife and I where lucky enough to get a room in this delightful little hotel in the heart of Galle old town. The town was completely sold out due to the literary festival and we were unable to reserve a room in our first choice heritage property, but we were not disappointed
