    Small boutique hotel centrally located in the Fort. It is really nice to wake up with your morning tea and be right in the middle of everything. Close walk to the restaurants, shops, and cafes. The hotel was cozy and had a nice garden terrace...More

    Wonderful hotel. Great location. Friendly and attentive staff. Amazing breakfast (Sri Lankan and Western) (see photo). Only negative- hot water doesn't last a shower. In the room was a beautiful bath and we couldn't use it as there was not enough hot water.More

    This hotel is not sea-facing but is within the historic precincts of the Galle Fort. It is one of the finest heritage boutique hotels that one can stay in.

    If you head to the end of Church Street and turn left into Rampart street you will see the Lighthouse. Either side of the Lighthouse are beaches. They are approximately 10minute walk from the hotel.
