Great hotel and great people

Beautiful hotel with great food and friendly staff
We stayed at The Fortress for 3 days during our honeymoon. All around the hotel was awesome; beautiful grounds, helpful staff, great food, and fast wifi throughout the entire property. We did a couple day trips to Galle (30 minutes) and Unawatuna (20) minutes. There is a tuk tuk stand right across the street and the fares are cheap, just remember to negotiate a price before getting in. There is a great restaurant about a kilometer away called Stick Fishermen View Restaurant that I would highly recommend if you want to eat outside of the hotel. All around this hotel is fantastic and I would happily visit again.

Very Good8.0
Great property but could do with a bit of a revamp here and there. Swimming pool tiles and decking needs tending to and Salty snapper could do with a refurb! Lovely staff who couldn't do more for you and great rooms

Superb hotel
Pure luxury. Fantastic hotel. Word of caution regarding the "Fortress" rooms which face a wall - very much worth the upgrade to get ocean view.

Fantastic stay.
Had a fantastic 3 nights at the Fortress Hotel. Everything from the efficient check in service, room standard, food and service was first class. Tried the Spa during our stay and the 75 minute full body massage was very relaxing. The attentive staff made our stay a memorable one, they certainly aim to please. Having been a resident of Sri Lanka for more than 4 years the Fortress Hotel certainly has the edge over many hotels we have visited here. We will return for sure and will recommend this hotel to family and friends.
