The Galle Fort Hotel, Galle
Gret Stay!
Staff were very attentive to our needs. When I arrived, I asked if we could be switched into a different room and I was immediately accommodated. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, the location was ideal, and the food was great. I would absolutely recommend this hotel.

Every staff person pleasant and helpful. One weird thing on my part. I was surprised no concierge. So have to visit office. The office is behind closed doors. I felt I was going to principals office(headmaster, mother superior?). Probably just me.

The hotel itself has a great history, but we were horribly disappointed in our day! We booked a terrace suite, and they gave us a loft suite instead (and no refund for the difference). The room was dingy and needed a lot of work. It was so dark, we could barely see. The toilet/showers were horrible - dirty and very little hot water. The poor staff was working so hard, but management was horrible. You could easily tell they had no direction. Took over 45 minutes to get a bill for 2 beers. On top of that, they actually snapped our credit card in front of us (on accident) while checking out - and they told us they had no way to type in numbers, that we needed to find alternative payment!
