Fort Inn Guest House
Ranked #26 of 146 Galle B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 4, 2011

We were supposed to stay there last April, but a change of plans had us going to a different place. However, and because we liked the friendly and efficient attitude of the Inn when booking, we decided to go and at least eat there once! The breakfast was huge, fresh and tasty, with juice and eggs and bread and everything! We ended up having lunch as well, made especially for us! Great! We got the balcony, so the lunch stretched a while, while we were so pleasantly treated! Plus, we got to see the rooms, and the feeling was homey. Everything was clean and neat, and I wouldn't give it a second thought of staying there! Also, the guys are so nice, I even got a free ride to town for my shopping! It's a go!

It was an absolutely wonderful experience. Located in the heart of the Galle fort which makes it 5 mins from everywhere in the Fort. Rasika and Roshan who run the place are warm and gave us correct information on whatever we asked including tuk tuk fares.
A rarity when travelling in Galle.

Highly recommend the Fort Inn to anybody travelling to Galle.

We really enjoyed staying at the Fort Inn Guesthouse. The young couple who own this place were exceptionally friendly and welcoming. Importantly, you get the best honest advice from the owners who know all you need to know about the fort area. There were no attempts to sell you anything instead we were told to avoid paying the high prices for goods which could be at least twice that elsewhere. 

This place has its own restaurant, wifi and A/C but the best thing about it is the homely atmosphere and a balcony that looks out over the quaint street typical of the fort area.  

I definitely recommend this place as an  ideal base for anyone visiting Galle.

We stayed for three night it this guest house. It is really one the best ones in Galle and even of Sri Lanka. The small family who's running this guest house gives you really the feeling you are at home.

I would recommend this place to anyone. Young and old.

Spotlessly clean, beautifully presented room, fresh flowers scattered on the bed and delicious home cooking. The young owners are kindness itself and were extremely helpful. I could not reccommend this place too highly.
