The breakfasts are great - lots of fruit and choice of fresh juice, choice of eggs and toast etc. The staff are really nice...

Galle Fort without a doubt is my favourite place in Sri Lanka. 56 by Deco is a decadent boutique hotel on the corner of Pedlar & Lighthouse Streets in the centre of the fort. Spoilt for choice of dining, shops, etc only a few steps away. The rooms are beyond fabulous - comfy bed, blissful air conditioning and gorgeous bathroom...

We actually wanted to give good reviews on the Wrap Factory restaurant in 56 by Deco but we couldn't find it in Trip Adviser. We came across this restaurant by chance because the one where we wanted to go to was already closed for lunch. And it turned out to be a hidden gem! I ordered the Green Chilli Chicken...

Really recommend the 56. Lovely room, quiet and with everything you need. The breakfast is excellent with fresh fruit and then a choice of eggs and toast. It is literally in the middle of the fort area and walking is no more than 5 mins to anywhere. The pool at 44 is great and 2 mins away. We also ate...

Very clean and comfortable room, nice bathroom, good breakfast, very helpful and friendly staff. The location is great, plenty of restaurants around, the Fort feels very safe to walk around at any point of day or night. The only thing that can be improved are the prices charged for excursions/taxi transfers. The prices were extremely high even with London (UK)...

The relatively new boutique hotel 56 Deco in the Galle Fort area is an ideal location for exploring the Fort area. It is a stylish, calm and friendly hotel with well appointed rooms and excellent service. Breakfast is generous and good. A simple menu of tasty snacks is also available. Guests may use the swimming pool at its bigger sister...

Excellent hospitality offered by the staff. Service with a smile at all times, which made us feel welcomed and not a nuisance to them. The room had the basic amenities which met all our needs. Location was ideal with walking distance to the attractions in the Fort. The food was delicious and the presentation was of good standard. Overall, our...

Room was extremely clean! Well maintained furniture and linens. A/C worked perfectly. Staff was welcoming and efficient. Steps away from the Fort Walls and the lighthouse. Central location in the Fort makes access to restaurants and shopping painless. Breakfast was expertly prepared with attention to presentation and taste. Cool morning breezes made this a trip to remember.
