"My fourth visit to the Closenberg Hotel and I can't wait to get back there again in the future. Hotel is a little tired as are many of the hotels in Galle of its age and era. That is part of its charm. The best thing about the hotel is the staff and service. Nothing is too much trouble and everything is arranged with care and enthusiasm. The location and outlook are perfect and you fall asleep each night to the sound of the ocean. Peaceful and private, it is a joy. Barb : )) "

"we had a 5 night stay at the Amari Galle hotel and it was very good. Clean modern rooms, good food, big pool area and superfriendly staff. the only negative is that you can't walk in to town from there. You have to take a tuk tuk. the hotels cars are very overpriced so don't bother. also if u want transport to airport or some other hotel I recommend you to use a local taxi service instead of the hotels. The price difference is about 100 %. but with that said I can say that this is by far the best hotel we have visited in Sri Lanka. "

"Tamarind Hill was outstanding! The rooms and public spaces of this colonial era mansion are decorated in an elegant and unfussy style, with dark wood furnishings and floors, high ceilings, crisp white linens, huge bathrooms, and a private terrace outside the room. The service was attentive, personal, and friendly. While the food was excellent, the Lighthouse Hotel a five minute walk away provided a good nearby alternative for some variety. While this hotel is not inside Galle Fort, it is only about 15 minutes by tuk-tuk to the fort. This was one of my two favorite accommodations in a month in Sri Lanka."

"Me and my wife, wanted to enjoy a short vacation in our own privacy. And we couldnt have gone a better option than Le grand. Initially, we wanted to book another nearby hotel, but luckily we missed the agoda deal. I said, luckily, because the experience we had at Le grand was unmatched. The most distinct feature was the friendliness of the staff, along with almost mechanical precision they put in to service. The hotel s located at the very end of the galle fort, offering an amazing view of the fort and its ramparts. There is a secluded area right at the beach forming a natural pool, which was very convenient for a private dip away from the usual beachside rush and hustle. The food was another big plus we experienced. (A-La carte menu) According to the staff, the desserts were "designed" by a popular chef and almost has a gourmet quality. The only hiccup was probably the bakery products. Still they were better than any pastry shack you might find in sri lanka. "

"You really can't get a better location than Muhsin Villa. Galle Fort has extremely limited hotel options -- if you're looking for a budget accommodation, Muhsin Villa is far & away the best deal. The rooms are basic but functional, and the roof is a great relaxing spot. Really friendly owners who answered all my questions and helped when necessary. Highly recommend Muhsin Villa for a visit to Galle!"
