“Relaxing and enjoyable”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Great location, first rate Sri Lankan food and friendly, helpful and honest owners. We had three rooms for the family and started our vacation with a quiet stay here. This is an old building with character but it is well cared for. We would have liked maid service for the rooms each day.

Room Tip: Staircase above the second floor is quite narrow.

Our hosts came out to the car to greet us when we arrived. That was very nice after a long journey. We really enjoyed staying inside the Fort. We spent our time exploring it. Our hosts were very attentive and met our every need. The guest house is old and the rooms are very small, but adequate. The bathroom is typical Asian, when you take a shower you clean the whole bathroom. We had a room with airconditioning, I would recommend it. Our room was on the third floor and the stairway is narrow and steep. I wish I had let them know before we got there that we are in our 60s so that they could have put us on the second floor. I loved breakfast on the balcony. Breakfast was good. They arranged a taxi for us to get to the next city and that was helpful. Overall, I would highly recommed this property because of the young couple who own it.

Room Tip: Let them know if climbing steep narrow stairs will be a problem.

The family were very friendly and extremely helpful. I felt very at home during my stay.

Accommodation is ok and suits the rustic appeal of staying in the ancient Dutch Fort.

Room Tip: book early

The Fort Inn is a guest house inside the walls of the historic city of Galle. And it is everything a guest house should be. You are very much a guest in this lovely house owned and operated by Rasika and Roshan, who really know how to take care of their guests. There are only 3 rooms. My room was on the second floor and was as comfortable as could be. I had a little indoor balcony/sitting area, but much preferred the balcony facing the street, where I would have breakfast and dinner. My room also had a private bathroom, mosquito netting and ac. Make sure to tell Rasika you want her fabulous Sri Lankan breakfast every morning. Beautiful hoppers, coconut roti and curries, with fresh coffee or tea and wonderul tropical fruits. I did go out one night for dinner but again, Rasika's delicious rice and curry makes that an option only for curiosity's sake. She is one hell of a cook! There is always plenty of cold beer available, along with fresh fruit juices. They can make any travel arrangements you require. I enjoyed my stay here very much, befriended some of the other guests, and am happy to say I consider Rasika and Roshan friends now as well. They are the most considerate and warm hosts. I really did not want to leave. I know I will return to Sri Lanka and will not hesitate to stay here again.

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights. We enjoyed our stay here. Breakfast is lovely, hot water shower and free wifi. The owners are very helpful and friendly. They gave us recommendations, helped us to get Tuktuks (+ which prices are reasonable to pay). If you are looking for something easy going at a reasonable price, you should consider staying here.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 1st floor. We didn't have a view as it is located next to a roof, but ti does l...
