This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Fort Inn is a small place, much like many others in the Galle Fort. It is pretty basic, but pretty clean and convenient and the owners are really very nice. This is basically a home-stay, so it is vital to have nice people and they are. The main problem was odd water noises and smell in the bathroom, but this might be the pipes outside their control.

This place is not unique in the Fort, but is a nice place to stay. Be aware that the price seems to vary quite a bit online (Travellerspoint is relatively cheap) and is 'reasonable' for Sri Lanka, but that means it is a bit more expensive than many other places. Value is OK in these terms, but perhaps other places can be bargained for in the Fort.

I like the Fort far more than all the resorts plaguing the coast...

We were recently in Galle, and called up the Fort Inn before arriving for accommodation. On arrival, the owners seemed really nice and met us at the guest house. However, we were given a back story by the owner and taken 50 m away to another guest house where we paid the same price. It turned out that the owner of Fort Inn house took us around the corner to a much cheaper hotel, and pocketed more than half the money we paid as commission. We felt quite ripped off and justifiably upset due to these events. I would suggest all future guests to be careful and ensure something similar does not happen to them.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Situated in the heart of the town and excellently ran by Rasifa and his charming wife. Very clean and nicely presented rooms. Food excellent , our only criticism is the Travellers Point site says breakfast included and tea/coffee facilities in room and this is not the case. We were presented with a bill for 2 days breakfasts when we were leaving and whilst I didnt mind (it was worth it) it may catch out another traveller on a limited budget. We will definitely stay there again if in the area.

A lovely, friendly, family-run guesthouse with good facilities and tasty meals. Rooms are spotless and the owners made us feel very welcome. Free internet is available on site. The guesthouse is located in the heart of the old town, within walking distance of all the main attractions.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We were warmly welcomed and quickly shown to a confortable, clean room; actually in a new part of the same hotel called, "Fort 50"
There was a degree of noise at times which detracted a little but overall, we were confotazble enough to extend our stay here by one day!
The owner is very friendly and lively and any difficulties were quickly put right!

A nice hotel in an area which seems to us to be over priced!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I stayed 5 nights in the Fort Inn guesthouse which is run by a very friendly, helpful and serviceminded couple. The rooms are clean and all you need is there. The guesthouse is close to some restaurants and the small beach of Galle Fort. It was a pleasure staying in this guesthouse and I definately recommend it.
