Beautiful small and stylish hotel in the heart of Galle Fort. The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to make my stay easy and comfortable (special thanks to Mr Gayan who drove me around and was a wonderful guide as well). I stayed in the Sun Room (huge room at the front of the hotel with its own balcony overlooking the street), and it was perfect. (The Moon Room next door has a similar set-up.) The food was excellent, thanks to the chef Mr Mendis, and I also went on his half-day cookery class, which I would recommend - great fun and also included a tour of the vegetable, fruit, fish and spice markets. A really welcoming hotel in a great location. I was travelling alone and felt very well looked-after.
