Fort Inn Guest House
Ranked #36 of 167 Galle B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 January 2014 via mobile

This hostel is great value for money. The wifi is great, the rooms are clean and spacious and it has a great rooftop area. The family that owned the place were very friendly. The location in the fort is perfect, very close to lots of cafes and shops.

Fort Inn offers great location, good hospitality and very effective room rates for a stay. We had made the reservation based on a recommendation, and we were extremely happy with it. The rooms are basic, but clean. And if you're travelling budget, but still want to stay in a good location in Galle, Fort Inn is the choice for you

This plase was nice and clean, and offered very good value for being located inside the old Galle Fort. The owner's brother has a tuk tuk and took us places, and there are nice restaurants right across the street.

I have been to the Fort Inn twice after being introduced to Sri Lanka by my grandparents who helped and lived in Sri Lanka after the Tsunami in 2004. I travelled there once last year for 3 weeks and have just recently arrived home from staying there for the past two weeks. I love this place and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Rasika and Rasikar are the most lovely married couple who have a gorgeous wee boy chunnel & they are extremely accommodating and helpful and will go the extra mile to make you feel at home. The food is amazing, try the local seafood cooked by your hosts Rasika and Rasikar - The devilled Calamari and devilled prawns that they cook are delicious, i was cheeky and asked for the recipe so I can try and cook it at home. We found ourselves dining in at the Fort Inn for dinner most nights instead of going out to Restaurants as we enjoyed their cooking so much!!!! The vibe there is just like home, we practically lived on the balcony enjoying dinner and drinks together... and watching everyone go by and chatting with the locals. The Fort inn also have their brother Nemal who has his own Tuk Tuk and he will take you where you need to go & charge an honest price. Nemal also helps cook breakfast and serve, carry suitcases etc and is a really lovely man who you can trust. The rooms are very comfortable, with air conditioning,mosquito net, fan, dressing table, and new beds that are very nice and comfy to sleep on.

I will continue to visit Sri Lanka every year and this is where I will ALWAYS stay. Rasika, Rasikar, Chunnel & Namal feel like my family.

Love you all and thank you so much for taking such good care of us (as always) xxxxxxx Jaymie Wynd from NZ

We booked the Galle Fort Inn from our copy of Lonely Planet. Since that review, the owners have expanded to a new property a block or so away, called the Secret Palace. We stayed in the Ruby room on the third floor, a lovely room with a terrace and a balcony, with views from almost all angles inside the fort.
Some notes on our experience: there was tea kettle, bottle of water, and fridge in the room, but no cups, glasses, or tea. There was no table or chair in the room, so no place to put a suitcase or any other items. It was oddly difficult to keep the room comfortable overnight with the ac, either too hot or too cold. The top sheet on the double bed was only large enough for one person. No doubt these will all be ironed out - the owners work hard and aim to please. Sadly, the Chinese restaurant at the Galle Fort Inn is closed.

Comfortable guesthouse, with hot water and a/c. We stayed in the room perched at the top of the building - a hike up 3 flights of steps, but with views round Galle and your own private balcony. Small room, with non-functioning mozzi nets (2 single nets that didn't close over a double bed..hmm.. But those were the only drawbacks.

If you are looking for budget accommodation in Galle Fort area, it is not easy to find. We pre-booked Fort Inn based on reviews found on Trip Advisor and we're not disappointed.

Our stay in this family run guest house could not have been better. Friendly family, clean and fresh smelling rooms, air conditioning ...and as we booked the room on the top floor, we had views to the sea...lovely.

Location was also a bonus, right in the heart of Galle Fort with good access to restaurants and boutique shops.

Room Tip: Top floor has a roomy balcony with views to the sea ...ok not on your doorstep, but clearly visible...
