We stayed 3 night's at the Fragipani Motel (essentially a guesthouse) and had a wonderful time there! It is situated in the centre of the stunning UNESCO Cultural Heritage site of the Fort of Galle. To be honest, throughout the days we have not spent huge amounts of time in this guesthouse, but every moment spent there is best described as the calm and comfy rest your are looking for when taking a break from exploring the area...
The place started as a small family-run guesthouse, which it is still today (more or less, got a little too big for that with it's 15+ rooms). The place was exceptionally clean, with very comfy, spacious and nicely furnished rooms. The owners are a bunch of helpful and friendly people, who gladly serve you a solid breakfast for a very competitive price (don't forget, Galle Fort is not what you'd call a budget place!)
In a nutshell, the whole place seemed to be fantastic value for the money. With a few more basic rooms in their annex building (opposite; literally a few steps from the main building) costing around 3500 SLR and more polished rooms from 4000 SLR upwards in the main building, this was a perfect place for our prolonged stay in Galle.
Certainly, you can also pick amongst a good deal much fancier places in Galle Fort, but that can easily be 60+ USD per night. We'd stick to the Fragipani and gladly recommend it further!
