We spent three wonderful days at Fort Dew Guest House. Our room was very comfortable, with a queen size bed with a mosquito net and a clean, private bathroom. The building has a lot of old-world charm, and has been made with local materials and a beautiful tiled roof.
On each of those three days, we'd roam around Galle in the morning and evening, and stay indoors during the afternoon. We'd pull up reclining chairs on the verandah and sit back with a book in hand. We'd lazily lift our eyes every now and then and take in the boys playing cricket on the grounds of the fort. Yonder lay the sea, the crash of whose waves lulled us to sleep.
Early in the morning, we'd stroll down the beach promenade and go down to the beach to watch the sun wake up. A beautiful experience.
On the second floor is the restaurant, which serves wonderful food. We thoroughly enjoyed the pasta, garlic bread and the rice dishes.
The prices - both of the rooms and the food - are reasonable. The owner is a young, sociable guy who is willing to chat with you and give you some insight into local life.
In all, a thoroughly enjoyable place!
