We were given a room a short distance from the main hotel in a beautifully restored old residence. The garden room was fantastic. It was large, clean and woderfully appointed. There was someone around to help if we needed anything. It was lovely having a coffee in the large lounge. The breakfast was absolutely delicious, as was the lunch we enjoyed in the restaurant. Highly recommended.

We stayed at no 5 during the recent test match
The only room we could take was the twin
The room is small and there is little storage space. The beds are very comfortable and we loved the rest of the house.
Galle fort is a great place to stay especially when going to the cricket ground.
As is common throughout Sri Lanka the staff were friendly and efficient.
We hope to come back and will try to stay here again.
Restaurant good

We had been recommended this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. There was a good choice of menu - European/Asian fusion and a good selection of drinks with a lovely choice of non alcoholic juices, sodas, teas etc.

We sat in a lovely courtyard area cooled by fans and both ordered the chicken burgers which were more like sliders with soy sauce to add flavouring and caramelised onions - they were delicious! I also had the coconut pannacotta to follow which was also nice. Prices were OK and staff were plenty and attentive. It seems a popular place to eat on an area where choice and quality are generally high.

We visited at lunch time while there to watch the cricket. The fresh tuna was amazing. It’s a nice setting and is obviously popular as we got there early and it soon filled up. Also had very tasty potato wedges as a side

We stopped here one afternoon for a drink and snack (meze plate) and booked a table for dinner the following evening after the 1st day of the test match. Perfectly located in the middle of the fort, beautifully renovated building and a great atmosphere. The seafood in spicy coconut gravy was fantastic and really spicy! The mahi mahi fish was delicious, as was the curd with treacle for dessert.
