Once we finally found Fort Bliss, check in was friendly, and we were shown to our room. Our agency told us this was a "4 star boutique hotel", which it is not, it is a 3 star B&B. So unfortunately it was not what we expected. We had a room upstairs that was clean, but quite small and the bed...

Excellently located in the old fort area, this hotel has colonial charm. Huge four poster in a spacious room with ceiling fan and aircon, with the sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep. It's not super modern but everything worked well. Breakfast in the courtyard cooked to order with excellent coffee.

This place was beautiful and quaint. It is a peaceful escape away from the bustling Fort Galle. The breakfast was amazing with multiple courses, they can either make an American breakfast or a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast. The staff was so welcoming, nice and helpful with any questions we had. I could not recommend this place more!! Loved staying at...

I would highly recommend Fort Bliss, the location is excellent, as is the room we stayed in. But what makes the place special is the staff, they are very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, from breakfast request to dinner recommendations. It was a real pleasure to stay there.
