The place has potential but it wasn't really thought through when the place was turned to a hotel. The airconditioning unit in my room was installed to take the air from the bathroom, which meant that when you cool the room the bathroom ends up boiling hot. The windows from the bathroom open to the main reception room with no glass, just shutters. The room also has two other windows into the main reception room so you hear everything going on downstairs, including the staff watching sports. The room was full of mosquitos and I asked it to be sprayed, this was clearly not done despite the promises and I spent the night chasing mozzies.
The room looked nice though, bathroom was very nice (except for being boiling hot) and the place very clean.
I was in two minds about booking this or the Fort Printers.... and after popping my head to printers I know I made the wrong choice, it just wasn't worth the money.

We sincerely apologise for any inconveniences that you have experienced. The air conditioner has been relocated to a more appropriate place. The window in the bathroom could have been closed easily, a task that the staff would have done for you. Concerning the mosquitoes, a miscommunication had taken place as they would have been pleased to help.Regarding Fort Printers, it is a much bigger establishment so a comparison would be rather unfair. Thank you for your valued comments as it helps us improve and deliver the best possible experience. We do hope you rethink and give us the opportunity of hosting you again on your next visit to Galle.

Thank-you for a fantastic stay. We booked the entire villa and loved every moment of our stay there. Sagara and Jayanta were awesome hosts and the fresh fruits and juice at breakfast was delicious. Anything we wanted was arranged for us, and the ambiance was just beautiful and relaxing.
Since we a big group of friends we made quite a lot of noise and mess :p but everyone was very accommodating. The free wifi, lcd tv and cable were just added perks - and our rooms were clean and comfortable with absolutely nothing lacking in them.
If anyone of us ever returns we will be sure to stay only at Fort Bliss - loved the decor, the hospitality and the location. Thanks.

We love it at Fort Bliss! Sagara and Jayanta welcomed us like long lost friends and family and made us feel at home instantly! The food was the best we've had in sri lanka (and we've tried alot of different food) - the hopper at breakfast was amazing!
This has been the most memorable part of our journey and we will return to Galle and stay here again. Our friends and family will stay too!
We looked at other boutique hotels in Galle and Fort Bliss is far better an experience than the others that may be impersonal. At Fort Bliss you get style, warmth, great people and delicious food! An inspiring place to be- we could have stayed longer!
Thank you for making the last leg of our journey memorable! We will see you again soon and take away fond memories of our stay at Fort Bliss!

Room Tip: All rooms are decorated stylishly. The rooms on the 2nd floor provide views of the fort.
