Fabulous

Traveling with family including two children, we all loved this charming hotel. The rooms are spacious and retain the charm of last century with modern facilities. The meals - especially breakfast were outstanding. The location is perfect being inside the old fort so we wandered around the area enjoying the scenery and quaint shops and interesting architecture.

A hotel with a lot of character and well located.

This hotel has an excellent location in the middle of the fort. The rooms huge and the pool are welcome in the heat. Great breakfast. The small roti restaurant next door to the hotel is owned by the Galle Fort group, it is great.

I found this hotel very pricey. Breakfast was not included and I think it should have been. We stayed in a loft room which is huge but it didn't have a comfortable atmosphere. There were plenty of couches and day beds but where were the comfy cushions? All was hard.

Beautiful property, service lets it down

We have stayed on multiple occasions at this hotel, and sadly i have noticed standards slipping every time. This last visit we stayed in the library suite, which is great for a small family. We had arrived late from our journey and really wanted a quick bite then to bed. However we had to call in maintenance to the bathroom as the sink just wouldn’t drain. We had a similar issue with the toilet in our last visit when we stayed in the admiral Chen suite. These issues should be picked up and fixed straightaway, if housekeeping were on top of things. The food we also noticed was disappointing, and breakfast quite average. fortunately we were only staying one night, but i feel that management is not on top of things. Shame as the location and character of the hotel are fabulous.

Lovely hotel in historic building

We stayed in the Porcelain room, a suite on the ground floor.
The room was lovely and full of character, a welcome change from the nondescript boxes that spring up everywhere.

The building has been lovingly and tastefully restored.

Breakfast was very good; dinner just ok.

The hotel is perfectly placed in this historic area.

The staff were friendly and helpful.

We would love to stay again.

Best hotel we stayed at in Sri Lanka! We were greeted with drinks on arrival, which was welcomed after a long car journey from Nuwara Eliya. Our room in the Grand Apartment was incredible. Bed was very comfortable and staff were fantastic. Food at the hotel was excellent, peaceful atmosphere in a charming setting. We enjoyed having cocktails on the veranda in the evening. The pool is lovely and refreshing after a day of sightseeing around the Fort. Highly recommend staying here when visiting Galle!
