Beautiful house turned into a small hotel with four bedrooms. Lot of authentic details. Location is very convenient in the old centre of Galle. We enjoyed a great breakfast also to celebrate the birthday of our twins. Our room had a great view on the Ocean. Great service with a very friendly staff.

I stayed here for 2 nights for a friends wedding - the guys at the reception were great, the rooms were clean and the bathroom was quite big - colorful with a walk in shower. I wanted something simple on a budget, and I was very happy with my choice here.

Fort Bliss is a beautiful hotel in a great location. the hosts were great & the breakfast was divine. We had 2 rooms upstairs, with one room with water views. It's a close & easy walk around the fort with lots of restaurants to eat. We would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone.

We loved our stay here- 3 nights in well appointed renovated old hotel. Airconditioned upstairs rooms, 4 poster bed with common balcony looking over the fort walls to the Indian Ocean. Breakfast was amazing- lovely fresh juices and fruit with our choice of English or Sri Lankan eggs. The clever chef Sunil was keen to show off his skills serving... More
