We only had a night stay but we were made to feel very welcome. Breakfast was served in a very pleasant room and included a delicious smoothie! Room was nicely appointed and overlooked the sea. Good location

Tucked away in a narrow lane inside the old fortress, is the tiny Fort Bliss hotel. We were welcomed with a cup of tea and then shown to our lovely rooms. This is one of the few hotels that is actually better in reality than the photos you see online. It is quaint, calm, welcoming very beautiful and a lovely place to stay. It is a very small property and offers only bed and breakfast, but we were continually being asked if we'd like another cup of tea and were generally well looked after. It might be a good idea to ask for your room to be made up when you go out in the morning, as they were a bit slow on that front, but the management would do anything you asked, so just ask! If I return to Galle I'd definitely stay here again.

A lovely little B & B hotel situated in Galle Fort itself where Mr Aman takes great care of his guests. The hotel is very clean and has a very peaceful ambience. Excellent service/breakfast and lovely bedrooms make this hotel an excellent choice for a stay in Galle.

Beautiful refurbished building within the fort - so easy to then amble within the citadel and soak up the ambiance. Excellent service with comfortable beds and a great shower - highly recommend a stay here, only wish we had booked 2 nights instead of 1.

Galle is such a unique place in Sri Lanka. The fort and the streets with the shops,restaurants and people are amazing. Fort Bliss is a superbly renovated guesthouse right in the middle of the fort precinct. The staff are very, very friendly. The decor and ambience of the place make you really feel like you are somewhere special and the breakfast in the morning was very nice. We loved our stay here and if you come to Galle, which is a must, stay here

The guesthouse is located within a few steps from the fort walls where you get the best views of the sunrise and sunset as well as within walking distance to restaurants and shops. There are only 5 rooms in total so there is a very homely and cosy atmosphere. We stayed in the end room on the second floor which was clean, spacious and comfortable. There is air con in the room as well as wifi. Breakfast was great, nicely presented and filling! The chef is extremely friendly and will ensure you are well fed! The owner/manager Aman is also very polite, helpful and a pleasure to speak with. One point to highlight is that only cash is accepted for payment which is understandable for a small guesthouse and is not really an issue but something to take note of.

The accommodations were quiet, well appointed and maintained. The staff was thoughtful with ice made from purified water. Breakfast was beautifully presented. The hotel staff were helpful with dinner recommendations.
