We had decided to spend 5 nights in Galle Fort on our return to the island after 30 years, and we were very happy to have chosen Fort Bliss. It's position is perfect for people who enjoy walking around the lovely old lanes in the morning and evening while the day trippers aren't around, and it's on a fairly quiet...

This is a difficult review to write. The genuine warmth and service from some of the staff - plus the the breakfast - were real standouts in our holiday round Sri Lanka. The hotel itself was small and intimate and very much in keeping with the Fort area. However the room we stayed in was pretty noisy. All three of...

Stayed here one night while visited Galle. Perfect location as right in central Galle Fort. Stayed in ground floor room, very small but adequate although had a musty old smell. Bathroom and shower very good for a guesthouse. Air con and WiFi worked OK. Nice breakfast in courtyard. Helpful staff. Good value for such a good location

The staff were very attentive, they offered free laundry service and tea or coffee after our walk around the town. Very conveniently situated for local restaurants, etc., and the breakfast was...

We started our Sri Lankan trip in Halle with a 2 night stay in Fort Bliss. It was the perfect gentle introduction to Sri Lanka. The friendly attentive staff couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfasts were wholesome and freshly cooked. The room we had was a fair size with a spacious bathroom. Yes the bed was hard, but certainly...

Galle still retains its colonial flair and structure stretching back to the Portuguese and Dutch days. In equal parts charming and overrun with tourist knickknack shops, it is a re ommended destination on a Sri Lankan visit. Fort Bliss Hotel is a small, simple, but elegantly furnished lodging house just near the southern tip of the fort. People crowd along...

The room was very nicely furnished and included a mosquito net and very functional A/C. The wifi was a little too weak. My husband's phone received signal, but mine could not. Breakfast was excellent, a served multi-course meal with a choice of eggs. On our second morning, when we left early, the staff prepared a breakfast to-go.

I stayed at Fort Bliss Galle for two nights. Generally, I don't like staying at B and B's or small "hotels" that aren't really hotels. But, I found Fort Bliss Galle to be quite charming. This facility has only four rooms and I stayed upstairs at the end where I had a view of the ocean. The room was rather...

This is a small B&B that is perfectly located near the walls of Galle fort. The offering is simple, but the rooms are nicely decorated and have everything you need. The hotel is situated within walking distance of everything in the fort - 1 day is all you need to explore unless you plan to do day trips. The only...
