a hole-in-the-wall instead of a room we've booked; snippy manager; bathroom was not in the room; the room was squeezed between kitchen and storage; it was sultry and damp. But the price for all this was like for a suite!!!! It was a rip off!!!!

We stayed for one night in junior double room. It was a good price for inside the fort in Galle and good location. However did not provide enough linen, and when asked the linen received was stained. Room was quite small with over-excited AC (i.e freezing when on). Room and hotel very clean. Continental breakie was nice. Overall ok.

First off, all hotels inside the fort are expensive and looking back we should have just stayed at a good place outside. Since we were only staying one night, we decided to save some money by taking the double room with fan only (we've stayed in fan only rooms before and, yes they're hot but not too bad). The bathroom... More

The hotel is very nicely done, the room was nice and spacious although they couldn't give us a double room because they were "busy" - although at no point did we see many other guests! Breakfast was average. Very good location for the fort.

Phoned to make reservation. The owner then asked me to email to confirm what was agreed in the conversation. We turned up a little after 1pm to be told they'd double booked. Bearing in mind I'd booked a double and a family room. They offered us a family house with 2 rooms, then sent us next door. The rooms next... More
