It is a walkable distance from The Galle Central Bus station to the property, probably 10 to 15 minutes walk. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The place is cosy and comfortable.

Inside the Fort
Small place in centre of the Fort Rooms small but ideal for exploring. We were in the eaves and room a bit cramped but fine for overnight stay. A/C kettle hot shower Wi-Fi Do take a stroll round the Walls in the morning

4/10 Fair

Not worth the money..
Lovely family & great location yet after check in the cracks started appearing. Not only is there the worlds most mosquitos in your room due to wholes in the design of upper ceiling & the mosquito curtain aiding this swarm yet blocking the ceiling fan - there was a water shortage at 10:45pm in which they decided to manually pump water for an hour to the room above us.. fair to say my partner didn’t need sleep, water was only cold & I got eaten alive. Ultimately, not worth the money. He did drop ya to the train terminal at 7am (I think he felt bad)

Great Location, kind and helpful owners
We stayed here for one night. The location was perfect, right in the center of the Galle fort area with plenty of good restaurants, and the ocean beach and viewpoints nearby. The owners were very homely and helpful. We were leaving early next morning, and they packed us some cookies and cakes to eat on the way before the breakfast places open. Nice and comfortable stay, will recommend strongly.
