Fort Bliss in Galle is a very comfortable place to explore Galle. Staff are friendly and helpful, room was great and the breakfast was very generous. The location can not be beat. If we return to Galle we would stay here.

Nice place to stay! Very large room & en-suite, and very friendly welcome. Stayed for two nights, and gave us time to free walk around the Fort area, which is fascinating! The time also allowed us to catch up with some travel laundry, which the guys did a wash, dry & fold service free of charge! A note for travellers...

We spent two nights here in the ground floor room. It was small, but perfectly ok and the bathroom was great. We had a warm welcome, really wish I could remember his name as he looked after us so well. The breakfast was amazing, a beautiful fruit platter followed by eggs the first day and AMAZING banana pancakes the second...

We had decided to spend 5 nights in Galle Fort on our return to the island after 30 years, and we were very happy to have chosen Fort Bliss. It's position is perfect for people who enjoy walking around the lovely old lanes in the morning and evening while the day trippers aren't around, and it's on a fairly quiet...

This is a difficult review to write. The genuine warmth and service from some of the staff - plus the the breakfast - were real standouts in our holiday round Sri Lanka. The hotel itself was small and intimate and very much in keeping with the Fort area. However the room we stayed in was pretty noisy. All three of...

Stayed here one night while visited Galle. Perfect location as right in central Galle Fort. Stayed in ground floor room, very small but adequate although had a musty old smell. Bathroom and shower very good for a guesthouse. Air con and WiFi worked OK. Nice breakfast in courtyard. Helpful staff. Good value for such a good location

We started our Sri Lankan trip in Halle with a 2 night stay in Fort Bliss. It was the perfect gentle introduction to Sri Lanka. The friendly attentive staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfasts were wholesome and freshly cooked. The room we had was a fair size with a spacious bathroom. Yes the bed was hard, but certainly...

Galle still retains its colonial flair and structure stretching back to the Portuguese and Dutch days. In equal parts charming and overrun with tourist knickknack shops, it is a re ommended destination on a Sri Lankan visit. Fort Bliss Hotel is a small, simple, but elegantly furnished lodging house just near the southern tip of the fort. People crowd along...
