We had a room which over looked the grassy area where people play cricket and you can see the ocean. Small room but clean and had everything we needed. Very quiet at night too. We stayed for one night as we loved Galle and wanted to spend more time there. The rice and curry upstairs in the bar/restaurant was fantastic, beer was cold too which was a bonus. Staff we're super friendly and helpful. Great place to stay!

Room Tip: Room 2 has a lovely view

It's a lovely little guesthouse in the fort. Clean, bright and welcoming. We had a sea view room which was beutifull. There is a comfertable bed with a muskito net. The electric hot water device in the shower gives you a warm shower but with a very weak water flow, but this seems to be the standard in the coast area.
All in all, the best value in the area.

Fort Dew hotel is just opposite a small Buddha temple, with the fort walls and the ocean in the back. Had a great and clean room with balcony along the house. Great people watching! Nice roof top terrace with good food. Staff is very friendly. The neighbour car has babies.

Room Tip: Ask for a window to the street

We spent one night here and enjoyed our stay. The rooms are clean and well decorated and there was a balcony to sit out on and watch the world go by. There is a restaurant on the top floor with good views across the walls of the fort. Everything inside the fort is within easy walking distance. Staff were very helpful and friendly. We didn't eat here but the menu looked reasonable.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good.

Called in for a late lunch time snack & a good cool view at the top, good service & friendly staff, not expensive. a good location for parking opposite & avoiding the tourist crowds. Enjoy the walk around the area & take many beautiful photos.

Room Tip: look at room before showing passport & credit cards

Very nice roof top restaurant and little hotel aswell. I can only write about the restaurant, but would certainly consider taking a room the next time. We came across it while looking for a nice place to have a beer which you won't get everywhere within the fort. We also had food here and were very happy with it. Another big plus: Clean toilet facilities, and you can also take look into the kitchen. Perfect to end a daytrip to Galle.
