This is an old building right in the centre of Galle Fort. This means you are bound to be woken at first light by the call to prayer from the mosque. So don't expect to sleep late! The building is very old, but has been sympathetically converted to a hotel. As such there are compromises, not least to comply with... More

I must say I liked everything about this boutique hotel, the staff, the rooms and the food. We received the customary Sri Lankan welcome before we were taken to our room Church Suite 5. Sad person I am I immediately tried to log on to their WIFI but without success. I asked for help but the staff could not log... More

We've been travelling around Sri Lanka and staying at chain hotels all of which we could not fault. Rather a change then to stop at this privately owned hotel in the centre of Galle. A refreshing change.. we were immediately impressed by the exhibition of architectural design on display... and their obvious enthusiasm for good building design.It was with some... More

We booked a table for 8 people for my wifes birthday but turned up with 9. They quickly rearranged our beautiful spot in the garden and smiled all the way. The food was fantastic, the service excellent and they even arranged a birthday cake with no extra charge. Will be visiting again for sure!

Very beautiful old hotel in the middle of the fort. Very elegant style and very calming. We stayed in Church suite 5 and enjoyed it very much. It's large, quaint, lovely bathroom with quality toiletries (no toothbrush/paste/robes or slippers but that didn't bother us). The outside road noise could be an issue but I was well prepared with earplugs, traffic... More

On arrival we were warmly met by Sylvie the duty manager who showed us to our room and explained the various hotel facilities. We spent two nights at this unusual hotel in a simply furnished spacious upstairs room in the building opposite. The bathroom was also spacious, bigger than some rooms we have stayed in elsewhere in Sri Lanka! Dinner... More

We enjoyed two nights in this charming quirky hotel, staying over the road in the Pedlar rooms 1 & 2. I enjoyed the best tuna steak - ever. The wifi was hit & miss but they were helpful in sorting out the problem. I wouldn't swim in the small pool too public.

A respite from the January heat. Rooms are simple and spacious with grey polished floors. Restaurant was very good, I loved the beetroot carpaccio. Meet up with friends in the bar or by the pool and enjoy a chilled glass of wine. Staff are amazing,

Unfortunately we could only spend one night here as they were booked out. What a beautiful hotel and what beautiful people. We had two rooms opposite each other which was perfect for our family. Luxurious room and bathroom very spacious. Lots of lounge areas outside our rooms Location was super for strolling and shopping in the fort. Had an amazing... More

Tried the Fort Printers restaurant tonight. Full moon so it's a holiday and therefore they don't serve alcohol. Really pleased with our meal although probably the most expensive we have had so far in Sri Lanka...we have only just hit the south. Chose a vegetable fatouche - fresh and tasty followed by tuna sushimi - a starter too -again very... More
