“Clean and Comfortable home inside the Fort, with the sweetest people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2011

I've just spent 3 nights at the Fort Inn, my first, in fact in Sri Lanka. I've been quite comfortable here in this simple and clean home. The proprietors won by business with their speed and honesty in answering my email about room availability and weather conditions. They even came to pick me up at the bus station, which was very sweet.

I would come back in a heart beat, especially since Rasika is such a wonderful cook!

A great introduction to Sri Lanka!

The lovely Rasika & Rasika and little Chanul were a lovely family who hosted us at Fort Inn. Great service, yummy breakfast and lovely views and breeze from the top floor. They helped us with all requests on our 3 night stay. Stair case is steep and narrow but not a problem if you are fit and healthy. Very clean rooms and a lovely atmosphere and balcony to meet fellow guests on. Great location and easy to walk anywhere in the Fort and into Galle city (or just catch a 3 wheeler) Thanks again for your hospitality!

Room Tip: 4 rooms available, top floor was private with sunbaking on the roof optional! no air con on top floo...

I stay here for 2 days. Very clean room, with everything you want( AC,hot shower , even with refrigerator), the room front the street has an excellent view. And the room in second floor has a small balcony inside,very cute. I live two room, one is the second floor, and in 3rd floor( a small one), both are perfect, the best room I lived in Sri Lanka. And the boss is very kindly, she give me a budget price, :).
plus, the food is really good too, value for it!

Room Tip: 2nd floor room is the best

I was in Colombo for a workshop. Instead of spending the 4th of July weekend in transit back to the US, I stayed on to visit with friends and explore Galle. My friends heard wonderful things about the Fort Inn in Galle and booked me a room for me to stay on and explore the area after the weekend. I had such a wonderful time. The owners are a couple with an adorable son who enjoys playing with guests. The owners took excellent care of me, giving me recommendations for eating and exploring on a limited budget. The leisurely breakfast on the patio every morning (with a stack of magazines and books left behind by former guests) was also a treat. and included in the price. My room, with AC and breakfast and Internet, was about $35 USD per night. You cannot beat that price! My room was on the first floor - clean and with a fun sensibility. The owners had built a reading "nook" above the cabinets and built a small set of stairs for guests to access it. All in all, I have only fond memories of this inn and would love to return one day with my husband! I loved my time there!

Fort Inn @ Galle is really everything you could ask for and more. Rooms are basic but lovely, spacious and beautifully maintained, it is very economical, there is free wi-fi and it is located very conveniently right next to the Galle Fort. What makes the place even more charming are the hosts - Rasika and her husband are the most wonderful and helpful hosts who go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable at their Guest house. For anyone coming to visit Galle fort, this guest house would be the ideal accommodation.

Room Tip: The room on the last floor could be a tough climb with the steep stairs. Might want to ask for the l...

I travelled aroud Sri Lanka for about 4 months and this Guest House was the best i stayed in by far! so friendly and welcoming, i cant wait to go back! The rooms are very comfortable and cheerful, and always kept clean with beautiful en suite bathroom. I was even allowed to use their own laptop for WiFi anytime! Balcony overlooks Pedlars Street, which is a really interesting part, although the whole of Galle Fort is magical. I recomend this Guest House to anyone, whether you are travelling alone or as a couple. Enjoy!
