Best part of this small inn are the friendly, welcoming owners. Decent breakfast with full pot of coffee on balcony overlooking Galle street life. Room/bathroom was so-so in terms of quality and cleanliness. Weird little platform, reached by mini staircase, holding a couple chairs and table. A bit spendy at $50/night, then again it's in a great location in the... More

Run by the charming Rasika and her family, the guest house has a perfect location in the centre of the old fort. Rates are reasonable, and the host can arrange reliable tuk-tuks etc. As many have said before, ask for the Sri Lankan breakfast. I stayed wtih my 10-year-old daughter and we felt very safe and well looked after, and... More

Very friendly staff with simple, clean and comfortable rooms. I stayed here with a friend and we found it easy and relaxing, close to good places to eat with a yum breakfast as well. We even got to hire bikes which meant exploring nearby beaches was a breeze.

We planned to stay at the Fort Inn for only 2 nights but in total ended up staying for 6. We found the room with accompanying terrace very charming and clean throughout. One downfall is the mosque and the prayers coming from it at 5am, though this can probably be heard from many other hotels within the fort, so we... More

Small and amazingly friendly guest house in the fort. Rasika, the hostess, made everything to make us feel like welcome guests in their home. Room had a woman's touch, alot of neat details, for instance all those flowers in the room when we arrived :) The only minor detail not working was the bathroom door, that had seen better days....

After roaming about Sri Lanka, we ended up in Galle. Having not been overly impressed by our lodgings throughout the country, we wearily ended up at the Fort Inn. The owners and their exceptional customer service afforded us a relaxing stay. The rooms are nice sized, the beds are clean and comfortable, and the water is really hot! We arrived... More

The beautifully smiling landlady of this small hotel made our stay very comfortable and relaxed, providing us with good advice for our trip and good food at night. Our room was comfortable (on Friday night a bit noisy from the neighbouring restaurant) and good value for money.

This place is deservedly popular. It's in a fantastic spot slap bang in the middle of the Fort, the owners are charming and the food is absolutely delicious! The Fort Inn may be relatively basic in terms of amenities but it is clean and excellent value for money.

This place is so perfectly situated in the Old Fort of Galle that I wasn't too bothered with anything else when I arrived. You can then imagine how happy I was to have been put in their top attic room, which has a fantastic cooling breeze through the windows and on to the private balcony outside the door. The views...
