Perfect end to a perfect trip!
Reviewed 1 week ago

We spent our last two nights in Sri Lanka here and was a great end to a fantastic trip.

We stayed in the ACH room which was a generous size and well equipped with everything you could need. Didn’t have an iron or ironing board but as soon as requested it was brought to our room so no complaints there! The open air bathroom was personally not for us but again everything you needed was there.

Breakfast was excellent as were all the staff and a special shout out to Chamara who looked after us when we arrived and always checked in with us to make sure all ok throughout.

The whole building oozes charm and the history of the building makes it a unique place to stay but also means is does look tired in some areas.

Perfect hotel to explore Galle would highly recommend.

Lovely hotel

We were in Forte Galle Hotel this August. Lovely experience, the room was beautiful, spacious and extremely clean, the staff very helpful and the restaurant is great. The hotel is small, an old private dutch house, with a secluded swimming pool. A hotel really unique!!

Lunch at a heritage restaurant
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Went there for lunch. Wonderful experience. The ambience is awesome and the food lived up to our expectations. The Lampreis was excellent. Service was professional. What really is most impressive is the heritage building with its tall pillars, entrance hallway with high ceilings and the wide verandah overlooking the small swimming pool with greenery all around.

Colonial luxury in centre of town
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

A beautifully restored colonial boutique hotel. I thought it a little expensive at first but it was peak season. Being an old forte and to keep the heat out, the rooms are dark but there is a beautiful courtyard with a lovely pool, attentive but discreet service and excellent food.
The beds were comfortable and linen was crisp and of good quality. A very lovely stay.
