    Beautiful hotel, stay for the breakfast

    Beautiful boutique hotel. Perfect location in the fort but quiet. Clean and well appointed rooms with comfy beds and nice showers to cool off after a day of wandering. The breakfast was amazing, I wish I could have it again! Staff were friendly and helpful. Was only there for a night, but no issues and would absolutely return.

    Great stay and location

    We had a great 3 night stay at the Yara Galle Fort. The room was very nice, food and service were excellent, and the location was perfect for walking around the fort. Highly recommend.

    Nice elegant place to stay

    New, elegant decoration, cosy, great staff, excellent location. Overall a great place to stay and relax. Much appreciation to the staff who went to the town center, bought and brought back 2 boxes of effective Sri Lanka herbal tea for taking care of my flu and cold-like symptoms. We loved our stay. Hope to come back.

    Good upper range choice

    We chose the Yara Galle Fort as an alternative to the higher priced hotels in the Fort area like Galle Fort Hotel. The room and the hotel overall was spotless and nicely decorated. Staff were helpful and friendly without being pushy. If we were to return to Galle we would definitely book here again.

    I had an awesome stay at Yara. The room, bed and bathroom were awesome and the people at the hote were amazing. From the time I arrived until I left they made sure that I was comfortable including specially preparing breakfast for me. Thank you Smith, Rizan and Lukkhana. Hope I got your names right. The location of the hotel was not far from the main entrance so getting in and going out were easy. I got in, dropped off my luggage and took a stroll to the rest of the fort area.

    Great food!!!!

    We loved the staff here, especially the chef. They are so warm and kind. Construction going in so a bit noisy. No alcohol but they have lovely high teas. Location good—you can walk to train station or town.

    Architecture of the building was interesting. The staff were generally helpful although we did have an issue with being overcharged for breakfast but they did fix that up quickly when it was pointed out to them.
