My daughter and I stayed 2 nights in this hotel in early March.
The hotel was well situated within the fort.
The property had been very tastefully restored. both our bedrooms were gorgeous, roomy and airy with a tiny balcony. Above all it smelt fresh.
The lounge area was superb and one could have your breakfast here or on the tiny verandah that was cool in the morning.
The small garden contained numerous chairs and day beds to relax in the shade.
The breakfast we had was excellent and included many varieties of fresh fruits including mangoes from a tree in the garden.
What surprised me was the numerous species of birds that were present in the trees, a delight for anybody interested in bird watching.
The Proprietors and the staff were very obliging, friendly and helpful. What more could you ask for?
If I ever visit Galle again, I will definitely stay here.
