Locked Out!
Despite being told that there is a security guard to allow for entry 24hours, I was twice locked out of the hotel. On my last night, I waited for 90 minutes before having to find somewhere else to stay. When I arrived the following morning, they did apologise but offered nothing more.

Great location at a price
The location is the main thing that recommends this accommodation. Getting woken at 6am each morning by the staff shouting to one another or the smoothie maker and having no windows in the room were not what I expected. Individually the staff were mainly delightful and kind, but the location enables this accommodation to over charge.

Great location and lively place to stay.
Great hotel in the centre of Galle Fort. It's a small hotel with nicely proportioned rooms and good bed. Breakfast was great and service was as expected, very friendly. They have their own waffle house too so easy lunches.

Clean modern, For fans of the Pondicherry region.
A great place to stay for westerners wanting a consistent compact clean and modern hotel in the heart of Galle fort. Not too many rooms which means it doesn’t get too crowded and noisy. There is the second hotel which has the pool 2 mins up the road but this has easier access to the hotel. Will definitely be coming back here soon. For fans of Pondicherry in India you will enjoy the surroundings in Fort Galle.
Owen, gb1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Staff were very helpful and location was very good. The archaeological maritime museum is a must. Breakfast was good. Room had no view, but I guess you are in a very dense area, and it was certainly comfortable.

Perfect location in Galle
The hotel has the perfect location right in the middle of the Halle fort. While prices are higher in this area, you get lots of convenience. We had a ground floor room which was lovely, but quite dark. Pretty good service and an ok breakfast. We would stay here again.

Spacious duplex room in the heart of Galle
Right after a long train ride from Bentota to Galle, I was a bit nervous to see its rather old front desk without much lighting, which was followed by a good surprise after entering my room. It was a well-maintained, clean duplex room with a living area on the first floor and a bed on the second floor! The king-sized bed was very comfortable. In my stay there was a power outage onetime, but they had their own electric generator and had electricity back in a minute, which was impressive. The hotel is located in the center of Galle Fort, with a wide range of selection of restaurants etc. When you come to Galle, don't forget to visit Dutch Hospital!
