We'd passed this place by coincidence. We've been visiting 5 guesthouses in Galle all in the same price category.
Fort dew was far the best: very nice setting (you see the sunset on the terrace).
The restaurant was great to have a Sri Lankan breakfast (need to order one day in advance).
Rooms were basic but clean and okay.

Room Tip: thethe rooms in the back are the quiest ones, but we thought they were a little bit more basic than the ones on the front terrace

The guesthouse benefits from an ideal viewpoint to the sunset on the one hand and the buddhist temple on the other, while being in a very quiet location in central Galle.
The staff was very helpful, smiling and way nicer than other guesthouses in Galle.
On the negative, the room I was in was a bit hot as not well ventilated; it's probably better to opt for the A/C upgrade as the fan doesn't do the job.

Very basic, clean, well located. Clean rooms and toilets. The staff was friendly and efficient. Quite cost effective. Recommended for spending the night will going to nearby places in the day. Located right next to the Fort ramparts and a beautiful Buddhist temple. Very quiet and peaceful in the night.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing the sea

Friendly staff, and good restaurant. Room (2) was small, and the warm shower -there's a cold one too -was broken. But a very comfortable bed.
Great sunset views, and probably the nicest mid range place in Galle.

We were staying in Unawatuna and came to Galle for the day. We just fell in love with it and decided to forgo our already paid for accommodation in Una and have our last night in Galle. We just wanted to get away from the Russian ghetto that is Unawatuna! We checked a couple of places and Fort Dew was by far the best. We had a pleasant room with a balcony (chairs & hammocks) overlooking the fort walls and the best spot in Galle to see the sunset. The room was big and the bathroom had a great shower with hot water. We didn't eat in the restaurant but had drinks and the view is even better from there. The staff were really friendly and helpful.
