The location was perfect for our two night stay in Galle Fort. The room was spacious and clean with both a fan & aircon (we did have to have both running for the room to cool any as the AC system was quite old and positioned away from the bed). The bathroom had hot water & good pressure & the... More

Best thing about this place is the family that owns it. They are amazing and really added something special to our stay. The rooms are clean and have a nice character. The place is very central. We really enjoyed our time here. Will will certainly be coming back.

Fort Inn is a lovely guest house with good sized double rooms and ensuite with hot shower. They do a delicious breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs and toast served with tea or coffee on the terrace overlooking the quaint streets of the fort. What really makes this place are the staff / owners who are just so friendly and helpful.... More

This basic guesthouse is very welcoming, in a perfect location. Room was good size, the stairs are steep, but the hosts carry cases up to the rooms. Breakfast was good, on the balcony which is lovely. Hosts provide transfers and are very welcoming. Not expensive, well worthwhile and would happily return.

Friendly hosts, fair priced rooms. We were three of us and they only had vacant double rooms when we had called, so we were given a room in another place which was theirs, two minutes away from Pedlar street. The AC triple room we stayed in was clean, had comfortable beds, had a tiny shared balcony, but a little too... More

Arrived late in the evening June 2015, and was very happy to get a room without booking - definitely try to lower the price, especially if coming in low season. The owner is very nice and friendly young lady, the house is an old building, but my room was clean and simple, with A/C and hot water. Not very big... More

I was happy with this place. The staff is nice and helpful. The room was not big but as all I needed was a bed, it was good. Same for the bathroon. Everything was very clean. I liked the balcony to chill and take advantage of a calm spot. Really well located too. Not too many things to complain about.

We stayed 1 night and the location was perfect easy to find and your in the heart of the Fort! The family were so welcoming and helpful!

A very disappointing room. The fort inn was recommended in the lonely planet book and had good reviews on trip advisor but turned out to be a disappointment. The floors were clean but the mosquito net was very dirty and the amenities (fridge) were also dirty and not in very good working condition. The bathroom was bad too. The AC... More

Couldn't understand the good reviews it had. Very dated building in a good location. Bathroom was very basic, room was dark with limited space to put your bags. Arrived late afternoon and didn't get a chance to compare it to other guesthouses. Manager lowered the rate in an attempt to get us to stay another night, found an amazing clean,... More
