We found this through trip advisor and trust it turned out to be a Gem of a place in Galle. The electrifying view of the sunset you get once u step out of this hotel is amazing. The food was good. The service provided by the smiling and welcoming staff was exceptional. Even when the whole Galle was blacked out...

Nice clean place, friendly staff. Breakfast was good. Hotel is well maintained and in a great location close to plenty of restaurants in main tourist precinct. We stayed one night as part of a tour and this was one of the better places we stayed.

This is a boutique hotel with only four rooms and is in a fantastic location in the Fort. It overlooks the ramparts and the ocean. We had some problems with the air-conditioning and as the hotel was full, they could not move us to another room. The staff went out of their way to have it fixed as soon as...

Had a wonderful two nights here. The location is superb and the accommodation is beautiful, clean and comfortable. What made the stay extra special was the staff. Isuru and Rohan were very welcoming and helpful and Sunil the chef made us delicious breakfast. We had the best banana pancakes and he even grinds the flour himself.

This hotel has excellent facilities and is ideally located next to all the key attractions in Galle (and the many many jewellery shops!).

We stayed here for two nights when we first arrived in Sri Lanka. Rooms were clean and comfortable.

Fort Bliss is a beautiful hotel, with a fantastic location and wonderful surroundings. Our visit was thoroughly enjoyable and this is without a doubt the best boutique hotel in the fort (especially for the price). The service was excellent, rooms very clean with modern facilities, and the staff very friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel but suggest tourists book...
