We had a wonderful stay in this hotel, 4 of us in the 4 rooms, all furnished with beautiful old Dutch furniture. Very comfortable, very central. The manager Rihan was most helpful, and the cook Sunil served an amazing breakfast. Would stay there again any time I was lucky enough to return to Galle.

Well situated within the Fort close to Rampart Steet. For the price this place is just great. The staff running the place can't do enough to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The breakfast is amazing and far more than I could eat at one sitting. Although I had the room overlooking the Ramparts it couldn' have been quieter....

This is a super little bed and breakfast in a terrific location at the heart of the lovely old walled port of Galle. Thanks to Aleem, from The Earth Trip, for recommending it and getting us a lovely room there (there are only four rooms available, I believe). We were shown to the room whose window looks out right onto...

Everything about this hotel was excellent. The location is perfectly situated near the ramparts in the old fort. The staff were very attentive and as everyone in Sri Lanka, incredibly friendly. A tasty breakfast and clean, comfortable rooms, make this an excellent choice in Galle.

Fort Bliss in Galle is a very comfortable place to explore Galle. Staff are friendly and helpful, room was great and the breakfast was very generous. The location can not be beat. If we return to Galle we would stay here.

Nice place to stay! Very large room & en-suite, and very friendly welcome. Stayed for two nights, and gave us time to free walk around the Fort area, which is fascinating! The time also allowed us to catch up with some travel laundry, which the guys did a wash, dry & fold service free of charge! A note for travellers...

We spent two nights here in the ground floor room. It was small, but perfectly ok and the bathroom was great. We had a warm welcome, really wish I could remember his name as he looked after us so well.

We had decided to spend 5 nights in Galle Fort on our return to the island after 30 years, and we were very happy to have chosen Fort Bliss. It's position is perfect for people who enjoy walking around the lovely old lanes in the morning and evening while the day trippers aren't around, and it's on a fairly quiet...

This is a difficult review to write. The genuine warmth and service from some of the staff - plus the the breakfast - were real standouts in our holiday round Sri Lanka. The hotel itself was small and intimate and very much in keeping with the Fort area. However the room we stayed in was pretty noisy. All three of...

Stayed here one night while visited Galle. Perfect location as right in central Galle Fort. Stayed in ground floor room, very small but adequate although had a musty old smell. Bathroom and shower very good for a guesthouse. Air con and WiFi worked OK. Nice breakfast in courtyard. Helpful staff. Good value for such a good location
