Stayed here for one night on our honeymoon in April 2017. The room & bathroom were huge. The staff were extremely friendly and the breakfast was lovely. The villa has 4 rooms in total & the location was perfect as it was in the centre of Galle.

Just off the hustle and bustle of the main streets inside the fort, the location of this hotel is excellent, which makes it worth its more expensive price. There are only a few rooms so it's quiet and private. The interior is like a colonial villa which makes it very atmospheric. Breakfast is served inside, there is no dinner or...

Decent hotel to chill in and walk around the fort. Get the feel of old-world charm with the furniture, flooring and really high ceilings, mosquito nets etc. The breakfast was particularly nice with local cuisine.

This hotel is in a quiet street. It offers 4 rooms and for those who enjoy history and the experience of a by-gone time, then this Heritage Villa offers all that and more..as this is a heritage home, the lighting is dim by today's standards.

Staying at this hotel is like living in a movie set. A gracious old house with only four guest rooms, less a hotel and more an up-market home stay.

Colonial charm right in Galle Fort. However rooms too dimly lit. Kids became uncomfortable as the night wore on. We stayed merely for one night. Within walking distance to the ramparts and the Rampart Hotel. Amenities in the room are acceptable.
