This is a boutique hotel with only four rooms and is in a fantastic location in the Fort. It overlooks the ramparts and the ocean. We had some problems with the air-conditioning and as the hotel was full, they could not move us to another room. The staff went out of their way to have it fixed as soon as...

Had a wonderful two nights here. The location is superb and the accommodation is beautiful, clean and comfortable. What made the stay extra special was the staff. Isuru and Rohan were very welcoming and helpful and Sunil the chef made us delicious breakfast. We had the best banana pancakes and he even grinds the flour himself.

This hotel has excellent facilities and is ideally located next to all the key attractions in Galle (and the many many jewellery shops!). The breakfast was delicious too but what stood out for us most was the staff; we left an item of clothing in our hotel room and Thameez arranged for it to be shipped all the way to...

We stayed here for two nights when we first arrived in Sri Lanka. Rooms were clean and comfortable. We had requested the upstairs room at the front which has a sea view from the bed- highly recommend. The staff were all friendly and breakfast was nice. For such a short stay the location was ideal as we were able to...

Fort Bliss was great for our two night stay, well situated in Galle Fort which is close to everything! The staff were very polite and happy to help throughout our stay. A highlight was the breakfast which was varied and delicious.

Fort Bliss is a beautiful hotel, with a fantastic location and wonderful surroundings. Our visit was thoroughly enjoyable and this is without a doubt the best boutique hotel in the fort (especially for the price). The service was excellent, rooms very clean with modern facilities, and the staff very friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel but suggest tourists book...

My friends and I stayed at Fort Bliss for two nights on a B&B basis at the start of our tour of Sri Lanka. We received a very friendly welcome from the staff who were always on hand to look after us. There are only four rooms; three upstairs and one at ground level set within a colonial style house....

Please make sure that you put all your valuables in the safe. Our iPad was stolen from our room while we were out for dinner. The hotel manager did not seem to care and more or less put the blame on us rather than to show some empathy. The locks of the room are a disgrace! Not recommended.
