Galle Fort Hotel is in perfect position for walking round the town and is a beautiful oasis when Sri Lankan life gets too much. We chose the Blue Porcelain room which has extraordinarily high ceilings and beautiful decor. One warning about the glass doors in the bathroom - they swing and I got my fingers crushed in them twice - still suffering!
The pool is small and in the rainy days we were there seemed a little dingy - but all the public spaces are very well looked after with amazing floral displays and beautiful furnishings. We had a good breakfast and great dinner at reasonable prices compared to some other places we stayed in.
Unfortunately we were without water without warning for a whole afternoon so couldn't shower or anything which was a bit of an inconvenience and none of the staff seemed too concerned.
Otherwise staff were all very friendly and efficient.
Galle is a great little town and well worth staying for a couple of days. We rented a scooter which was a great way to go to the beach and explore.More
