Loved this place! The family that own it are possibly the nicest people I've ever met. Their son Chantul is a lovely little personality and I would recommend this place to anyone, solo travellers, couples, families. They will make you feel right at home and the food is amazing! Rooms were impeccable and nothing was ever too difficult. Galle was my favourite place in Sri Lanka partially due to this place! Thankyou :)

Fort Inn Guesthouse has a great location in Galle Fort. Rasika and Rasika (husband and wife) are a delightful and friendly couple. Their brother Nelam has a tuk tuk and he took us to Unawatuna and Mirissa - he is a great driver, very knowledgeable, honest and friendly. The balcony is also a lovely place to hang out and people watch. We would thoroughly recommend the Fort Inn Guesthouse.

This is a very sweet little guest house, fabulously located right in the thick of things in the Fort district of Galle, which is the main area. You really couldn't ask for a better location.

The guest house has three rooms up some steep and narrow internal stairs. The family who runs the place live downstairs, so each time you enter and exit you're greeted by the hosts, who are very helpful and open, always smiling!

The rooms contained AC and a fan, four-poster beds with mosquito nets and a functional, although small and a bit damp bathroom. There's plenty of hot water, once you master the hot water unit!

They can also do washing at a very reasonable price. No WiFi in the rooms, however.

If I were to return to Galle I would definitely stay here again.

This was my second time I was staying at fort inn guesthouse. Somehow I really like this place and the atmosphere. Owners gave me an excellent price for a 3 month stay, were helping with everything and I had no complaints at all. Everything is clean and comfortable. Recently they've just made new long beds for European-sized people :)) and bought new comfortable matrases which help you sleep deeply and peacefully.

If you are staying for 1 week or more, you can freely use kitchen if you need it.

One of the rooms has a fridge, so you can easily buy food and keep it in the fridge.

Thank you very much again!!!

Maybe a touch overpriced like most places in the Fort but the rooms are nice and clean. The staff are lovely and speak good English. Expect petals on the bed when you arrive. They have a really go knowledge of what is going on and can sort stuff for you. It's not party central though so don't go expecting that.

The kind and generous family working this guesthouse made the experience in Galle worthwhile. We had our first-ever Sri Lankan breakfasts (we had to order the night before) which included egg and string hoppers and three different kinds of homemade curry. Everything was delicious and the staff was very accommodating to our travel schedule. They arranged the trip to our next beach town with the brother of the owner, who had a brand new tuk tuk! He took us to wherever we wanted to go that day and dropped us off right at the doorstep of where we were staying next, and all at a very reasonable rate.

This small inn is situated within the old fort walls and it's a gem of a place.
The owners couldn't be more helpful and yyou are always greeted by a huge smile!.
I had a double room with breakfast--which was very tasty and plentiful.
The room had a double bed and a good size bathroom plus ac and fan.
The room is not big enough for a wardrobe and there is no tv or fridge-a mini fridge would be ideal.
The room I stayed in would be a a bit on the small size if there were 2 occupying it and you intended to use it a lot during your stay-but why would you in fabulous Galle!.
