The room was very nicely furnished and included a mosquito net and very functional A/C. The wifi was a little too weak. My husband's phone received signal, but mine could not. Breakfast was excellent, a served multi-course meal with a choice of eggs. On our second morning, when we left early, the staff prepared a breakfast to-go.

I stayed at Fort Bliss Galle for two nights. Generally, I don't like staying at B and B's or small "hotels" that aren't really hotels. But, I found Fort Bliss Galle to be quite charming. This facility has only four rooms and I stayed upstairs at the end where I had a view of the ocean. The room was rather...

This is a small B&B that is perfectly located near the walls of Galle fort. The offering is simple, but the rooms are nicely decorated and have everything you need. The hotel is situated within walking distance of everything in the fort - 1 day is all you need to explore unless you plan to do day trips. The only...

Fort Bliss is ideally positioned in the Fort area enabling travellers to easily walk around all the sites, shops and restaurants in this very touristy area. The scale of the fort is breathtaking and it is amanzing that it withstood the 2004 tsunami. The staff were extremely kind and helpful and the breakfast was very good. The chef went out...

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...

Dear Guest, Thank you for the response and we are sorry your expectations differed. Galle Fort is a UNESCO heritage site, with a variety of sightseeing available. The Dutch Reformed Church, All Saints Anglican Church, Maritime and Galle National Museum are among many options. Also possible are whale watching in Mirissa and surfing in Hikkaduwa, all a close distance from...

Capping off a wonderful two-week stay in Sri Lanka, we booked our family of four in two rooms at the Fort Bliss Galle.

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.
