This hotel is well located, in Galle Fort close to the ocean and near to restaurants and shops. The decor is both stylish and homely. The internet is fast and allows multiple devices - the best we found during out 2 week trip to Sri Lanka. The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit and tasty eggs Benedict. The pool was... More

I'm so glad that their restaurant and hotel are listed separately so I can give two glowing reviews! We stayed at Deco on 56 their sister hotel just down the road which gave us access to their facilities. I will talk about the beautiful location and so forth in my hotel review but it is stunning. A gorgeous old hotel... More

I had braised fillet with rice as main and Sri Lankan cutlets as appetizer. Total bill was 1700Rs. Pretty decent price compared to some of the hotels in the vicinity. The cutlets were a little spicy and helps excites the palate (but not so much that a non-stick fan like me cannot handle!). Had the braised fillet because I wanted... More

This place was a safe bet given its ratings, but it left us disappointed. There was nothing special about it in terms of food, however much the setting is nice. Calamari a la plancha was ordinary and we had to ask for it to be heated up as it came somewhat cold. The king prawns (as pictured) were quite nice,... More

The restaurant at deco is well known for its good food. There was a live band as well singing popular English classics. The menu is selective but very good- good choices of Sri Lankan food, continental food and American food. Try the deco special sandwich- it's quite a mouthful!

We stayed here for 2 nights and ate in the hotel as it was raining and we did not want to get a soaking. We were pleased we did. The breakfast served was just right. A beautiful platter of freshly cut assorted fruits, a glass of tropical juice, croissants and toast with jam & marmalade. My husband had 2 eggs... More

This stylish hotel has comfortable bedrooms, a small but attractive outdoor swimming pool and a good restaurant. Staff are friendly and helpful and the ambiance is very relaxed. The location in the centre of Galle old town is ideal for tourists and it is only a few minutes walk to the sea. A walk along the walls is highly recommended.

This is a true hidden gem. A personal boutique hotel with awesome rooms (very big and clean) great service (lead by Mr Iflal) where nothing was too much trouble and the food was top quality... will be back again.

We took the cooking tour with the chef and then ate the meal. Terrific, authentic Sri Lankan curry to your taste.
