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...

My wife and I stayed at the Fort Inn for two or three nights in May of 2012 and couldn't have been more pleased.

The Fort Inn Guest House, along with its sister establishment, the Pedlar Guest House, just across the road provided a pleasant stay in the quiet, atmospheric Dutch Fort area of Galle which is so different from other Sri Lankan urban areas. Our room had been recently decorated and although it lacked a TV, it was perfectly adequate for the price...

I was looking for a clean, warm and comfortable place to stay in Galle, with no surprises and no worries about being ripped off. Fort Inn is that place, and I would stay here again if I pass by Galle. The owners, a cute Sinhalese couple with a young child, are very hospitable and accommodating. I inquired about finding a...

This was an excellent place to stay, especially if you are young or a back-packer. We were a couple of retirees and found the rooms a little too small. There was a rather bizarre arrangement in one of the room whereby you mounted a small ladder and sat perched at a table about 3ft above the ground. Also the stairs...
