“Perfect place great value.”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

Due to the heat (S India who knew;-) ) we spent alot of our time in our room. Very comfortable and clean, with just that extra something... chairs raised to sit and read. Really lovely owner (Raisika) very genuine and helpful.

This little place has only a couple of rooms. We stayed at the top of the Inn and this is a great room with a roof terrace which affords views of the sea and the surrounding city. The owners are very kind and friendly - nothing was too much trouble.

The sri lankan breakfast was absolutely delicious - especially the egg hoppers and coconut sambal. Galle old town is pretty and interesting but you can pretty much see everything in a day. It is also worth noting that alcohol is not widely available within the walls of the old town. We would definitely recommend this hotel for a short stay in Galle.

Our 3 days at Fort Inn were really good value in a well run and friendly guest house. Breakfast was great and Rasika and her husband were always welcoming and very helpful. Definitely worth recommending.

The Rasikas were soo nice and welcoming, the Fort Inn felt like home to us and we really enjoyed our stay. We were even able to learn how to prepare a Sri Lankan breakfast with Rasika! The room was perfect and great value for money, there's nothing bad to say at all about this place:)

We sourced Fort Inn through tripadvisor and was really glad with the outcome. The owners are super friendly. We stayed in the top room with a little balcony giving you a lovely view of the rooftops of the old city. If you make a stop in Galle, this is the one to stay in. It's basic, but the friendly owners more than make up for it!

After a long drive from kandy i reached galle at 9 pm and unfortunately i was drizzling . we had nt made any reservation ,we tried a couple of top hotels but all were full or dint understand English.
So i looked up online for B&B IN Galle n finally got the number and called.a very kind n sweet aunty picked up the call and was more than happy to accommodate us in her beautiful colonial style home . She even came near the fort gate in the rain to guide us through the old fort city with cobblestone roads :-)
The place was beautiful,, just 100 mtrs from the fort edge, u can even hear the waves slamming against the rocks n the light house light peeking in bw at times ...
Lot of restaurants around as well.so u dont have to worry about food but liquor is not available so i suggest u pick em up before u head into the fort area.

Room Tip: great location and room no alcohol available
