Galle, Sri Lanka Fort Inn Guest House & Restaurant 31 Pedlar Street A/C, Non A/C rooms & roof garden. This year I an the 3rd floor. Back in 2010 I stayed on the 2nd floor WITH a mini-fridge. The lady owner actually remembered me from 2010. It makes no difference. Choose a room off the street. Rooms vary in size....

Location is fantastic - in the middle of the fort with everything a walkable distance away. Our room was lovely - spacious with a little raised sitting area to catch the breeze, huge bed with mosquito netting, nice bathroom. The air conditioning was worth every cent. The young family who runs it are lovely people and made our stay extremely...

This is one ofv the worst inns we had the bad luck of stayin in. The room was tiny, the bathroom horrible. the towels were shabby and the whole experience was unpleasant. The hot water barely worked, the bed was soft and the breakfast poor. Do not go there Yona s.

The location is amazing, in the most vital and vivid street of Galle Fort - Pendlars str! Shops, cafes and sights just around the corner! The staff are friendly (seems to be their home), and we got the top floor of this tall and narrow building, with a privatenterrase overlooking the roof tops of Galle! Dont use their transport services...

We booked a room via email and received confirmation from the owner that our booking was ok. Few days later, he sent another note saying the room was no longer available, but that he'd book one at his sister's, which we agreed to. When we arrived, no room was available for us. Besides, as most rooms were booked in the...

I booked to stay at Secret Palace. When I got there I was shown a room a bit like a goldfish bowl on the ground floor in the reception area. This was not what I booked. There was a balcony mentioned in my booking. Straight away, I was offered a room in their 'other place' - Fort Inn. I was...

The owners of this hotel are lovely and helpful. The breakfast is very good, served on the small balcony on the first floor. Our room was a bit unusual with a raised section with a table and 2 chairs. The room and the mosquito net were absolutely filthy with dust which was made worse by the exposed sandstone wall section...

The owner's two brothers Jagath and Namal are the most honest and respectful Tuk Tuk drivers in Galle/Galle Fort. Prices are reasonable and they always answer the phone. We rode mainly with Jagath and he is totally reliable. Fort Inn guests and others from outside can be at ease with these guys. As most travellers know Sri Lankan tuk tuk...

The location is very nice as the surroundings are so cute, and there are a lot of small shops and bars. Just 2 min walk you'll see nice views of the city. The room was ok for the price we pay and it was clean. And the owners are very nice. You have an ODEL shop just in front of...
