Decent hotel to chill in and walk around the fort. Get the feel of old-world charm with the furniture, flooring and really high ceilings, mosquito nets etc. The breakfast was particularly nice with local cuisine.

This hotel is in a quiet street. It offers 4 rooms and for those who enjoy history and the experience of a by-gone time, then this Heritage Villa offers all that and more..as this is a heritage home, the lighting is dim by today's standards. Its location is within walking distance to all Fort Galle points of interest and restaurants....

Staying at this hotel is like living in a movie set. A gracious old house with only four guest rooms, less a hotel and more an up-market home stay. A sense of calm and serenity pervades the place and our room was generous in size with a big bathroom. The bed was very comfortable, to our taste the most comfortable...

The bathrooms are not always functional, we had problems with the sink and the shower, and the Internet connection was sometimes nonexistent. We were not served the nice Sri Lankan breakfast expected, but a couple of dry toasts with cheap jam and...

Colonial charm right in Galle Fort. However rooms too dimly lit. Kids became uncomfortable as the night wore on. We stayed merely for one night. Within walking distance to the ramparts and the Rampart Hotel. Amenities in the room are acceptable.
