Great place for sunset drinks, let down by surly service and poor attitude. The mango daiquiri was awful, full of fibres and really bitter - undrinkable. The fries came dusted with chilli powder that the 6yo could not eat. And then we had to wait because they had no change.Shame coz it's in a great location but I guess that...

I had a good experience. The staff was great and helpful. The room was huge and comfy. But the location was too far from Colombo for me. The cost of taxis did away with any savings I could have made with the slightly lower room rates.

We had planned to stay at another hotel but due to the joys of poor wifi we couldn't book it and when we turned up it was closed so our tuk tuk bought us to Fort Dew. Clean tidy room of a decent size maybe a little over priced but that seems to be the norm for Galle. The staff...

Great little rooftop restaurant up two flights of stairs above a guest house of same name. Great view of Fort walls and Indian Ocean. Menu has good selection of local and western food. Beer and wine available. Good service. Swing kept the kids occupied until the food came.

WE checked into this place for one night and felt it was so bad that we would rather loose the cost of the room than stay. The room is not clean and I suspect the bed sheets aren't either although I dare not examine them closely. the wooden windows allow mosquitoes to fill the room when closed and if you...

Fort Dew was for us a great stay. It is a lovely building with an eating area up top with great views of the green and out to sea. There's always something going on on the green! It was quiet at night though. The room was a good size, clean, furnished nicely and with a good sized bathroom. I wouldn't...

Lovely little guesthouse. Clean, comfortable beds, great breakfast, lovely staff who do their best to meet your requests. Good location. Perfect spot to sit in one of the little hammocks and view the sunset over the Fort. They also serve very good Sri Lankan Curry! Right next to the Buddhist Temple where they had yoga classes a few times a...

We had our first rice and curry here and it turned out to be the best. We sat on the balcony overlooking the fort walls.A couple of beers and cheap food with no additional service charge. Best value meal of our 3 week trip.
