Stayed with friends during GLF. Small family run hotel. Four rooms which make it ideal for a small group. Rooms are good. Good food. Away from the central Galle Fort area which makes for a more peaceful day, but close enough to walk to in 10 minutes. Food is good. Friendly and obliging staff. Great location overlooking the ramparts. Great...

We only stayed for one night at Fort Dew, we had room number 1, it was spotlessly clean, and had a four poster double bed, which was pushed up against the wall on one side and covered by a mosquito net, a desk and chair, wardrobe, fan and AC. The bathroom was a wet room with shower, the water was...

The rooftop restaurant is a refreshing place to recover after discovering the narrow streets of Galle. Breakfast (both European and sri lanka) was very good. The choice for lunch was rather limited; only few dishes of the extended menu could be prepared at the time we were there. Vegetable rice and noodles were very good. The front rooms on the...

I absolutely loved my 2 night stay and Fort Dew and would highly recommend this for solo travelers, couples and families with adolescent children. The rooms were spotless and well maintained with a superbly comfortable mattress and pillows. The second floor has 2 nicely appointed rooms that face the ramparts and on this balcony are comfortable, attractive chairs and sitting...

Helpful and friendly host, very nice clean rooms with attractive wooden furniture, good air-con and fan. Rooftop restaurant had good views over ramparts, and the best vegetarian food (rice and curries) we have ever had in India or Sri Lanka. You can watch kingfishers and bee-eaters in the surrounding trees, people strolling on the ramparts or playing cricket, and prayer-time...

Big bedroom, comfortable bed, large and clean bathroom. On the 2nd floor, restaurant with beatiful views over the green and the remparts, and the temple. Wonderful cook, Siri, he will serve you very good rice and Curry and lots of other dishes. The manager is very friendly, always there to help. I stayed 6 days and had a wonderful time....

We didn't stay in the guest house but wanted to leave a recommendation for the upstairs bar. We stopped to have a couple of beers looking out over the ramparts. We asked if there were any nuts to snack on and a short while later received a plate of delicious hot cashew nuts that were served with spices and crunchy...

The guesthouse is located inside Galle Fort, right on the edge, meaning you have a great view of the ocean from the rooftop seating/dining area, especially in the evenings. The rooms were pretty decent and the breakfasts good (Sri Lankan breakfast probably the best choice), but what impressed me most was the friendliness and helpfulness of the management (arranging day...

Generally clean and pleasant. Bathroom left a little to be desired - the toilet flush didn't always work and the bathroom window connected to another bathroom so you could hear other people's... timetables through the night. Beds were okay though, no chemical spray odours in room either. AC worked very well :) Nice view from roof top for having breakfast...

Loved this place! Great location and nice clean rooms make it great value. Staff were fantastic and served up a great Sri Lankan breakfast (make sure you tell them you want Sri Lankan breakfast though as don't think it comes as standard). Lovely little temple next door, which we were invited into during the perahera and made to feel so...
