Our 3 days at Fort Inn were really good value in a well run and friendly guest house. Breakfast was great and Rasika and her husband were always welcoming and very helpful. Definitely worth recommending.

The Rasikas were soo nice and welcoming, the Fort Inn felt like home to us and we really enjoyed our stay. We were even able to learn how to prepare a Sri Lankan breakfast with Rasika! The room was perfect and great value for money, there's nothing bad to say at all about this place:)

We sourced Fort Inn through tripadvisor and was really glad with the outcome. The owners are super friendly. We stayed in the top room with a little balcony giving you a lovely view of the rooftops of the old city. If you make a stop in Galle, this is the one to stay in. It's basic, but the friendly owners...

Best part of this small inn are the friendly, welcoming owners. Decent breakfast with full pot of coffee on balcony overlooking Galle street life. Room/bathroom was so-so in terms of quality and cleanliness. Weird little platform, reached by mini staircase, holding a couple chairs and table. A bit spendy at $50/night, then again it's in a great location in the...

Run by the charming Rasika and her family, the guest house has a perfect location in the centre of the old fort. Rates are reasonable, and the host can arrange reliable tuk-tuks etc. As many have said before, ask for the Sri Lankan breakfast. I stayed wtih my 10-year-old daughter and we felt very safe and well looked after, and...

Very friendly staff with simple, clean and comfortable rooms. I stayed here with a friend and we found it easy and relaxing, close to good places to eat with a yum breakfast as well. We even got to hire bikes which meant exploring nearby beaches was a breeze.

We planned to stay at the Fort Inn for only 2 nights but in total ended up staying for 6. We found the room with accompanying terrace very charming and clean throughout. One downfall is the mosque and the prayers coming from it at 5am, though this can probably be heard from many other hotels within the fort, so we...

Small and amazingly friendly guest house in the fort. Rasika, the hostess, made everything to make us feel like welcome guests in their home. Room had a woman's touch, alot of neat details, for instance all those flowers in the room when we arrived :) The only minor detail not working was the bathroom door, that had seen better days....

After roaming about Sri Lanka, we ended up in Galle. Having not been overly impressed by our lodgings throughout the country, we wearily ended up at the Fort Inn. The owners and their exceptional customer service afforded us a relaxing stay. The rooms are nice sized, the beds are clean and comfortable, and the water is really hot! We arrived...
