I got food poisoned from the food there. They were the last stop and restaurant i dined at. I have been at a hospital for two days with a stomach infection from the burger I had the last night at Galle Fort hotel. Terrible. I have been extremely sick since. Will not recommend whatsoever!

Two night stay
Positives: location, walkable to all that old Galle Fort has to offer. Interesting history of the hotel itself. Pool to cool off in . Room was large. Bed was comfortable. Breakfast was great (did not eat any other meals here) Negatives: pool has a dreadful old drain/sewerage smell at the far end (not in the pool itself- but could be from the drainage vents on the end/side?). Shower and sink in the room could do with a really good clean. Sink had a crack right across it. Mosquito net is looking really shabby. Feels rundown rather than heritage. Table in the Main lounge area was actively being eaten by insects while we were being checked in. requested transport to the train for early morning to be told no problem tuktuks here all the time . Did speak with a driver who did not turn up ( the only transport arrangement we had in 3 weeks of travelling that did not turn up). And no other vehicles in sight. Did send a staff member down the road to try to find something . Fortunately we had time to spare.

Old needs renovation and the rooms are a bit small. Also bathroom facilities are out dated and in dysfunction.

Charming Hotel in perfect location!
Highly recommend Galle Fort Hotel! So beautiful in a perfect location and the staff (especially Kusal - I hope I am spelling that right - who was at reception). My only comment is that they tried to charge us an egregious amount - the cost of an additional room - to add an additional guest into our Library Suite room. I booked the largest room specifically because I knew it could accommodate more than 2 people and was happy to pay an upcharge but not a whole room's worth! They were very pleasant and the pool area, the room, all of the small details were so wonderful. Breakfast in the morning was quite tasty and large - I wish I could spend a few more days there!
