A wonderful hotel in Galle Fort. The hotel is small with just 7 rooms and this allows staff to give a personal friendly service. Staff were very helpful and especially attentive to our 6 year old son. On arrival wewere told that this was to like our second home and it was.
The hotel is art-deco style which is a change from the 17-1800's colonial style elsewhere in Galle and gives a fun "Fred and Ginger" feel to the place.
The pool is in a coutyard and was perfect for a refreshing dip.
Galle Fort is easy to get around and the hotel is in a good location.
Food was excellent.
