We had a wonderful two days at this beautiful Colonial style hotel, located in the hearth of Galle Fort. The hospitality and service was impeccable. We were lucky to experience live music for the first time after Corona. By the pool side! Highly recommended.

I enjoyed the lovely room I was allocated, which was upstairs overlooking the pool and had it own lounge. The colonial decor was lovely. The pool is not so aesthetic but very welcome and enjoyable after being out sightseeing or shopping. The location is fantastic, close to walk along the fort walls and right in the centre of shops and places to eat. The food at Deco at 44 was great. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.

A pool is a rarity inside the fort and probably justifies the somewhat high price for an elegant and atmospheric hotel that has seen better days. There are only five or six rooms so you can be fairly sure of peace and quiet. An attempt has been made to keep the decor of the rooms in line with the architecture of the building. Food and drinks were less impressive so it might be better to stay here and dine/breakfast elsewhere - everywhere in the fort is five minutes away.

Lovely old world charm at this hotel. Our room was comfortable and was adjacent to the pool, fantastic! All the food we had here was delicious especially the seafood. Would highly recommend this hotel as an affordable option in Galle within the fort.
