Fort Bliss Villa
Show reviews that mention
home away from home at Galle Fort”
Fort Bliss is a quiet villa that is just a stone throw from the Galle Lighthouse. We are pleasantly surprised how quiet it is although it is near to a popular attraction, and yet it is so convenient. You can easily access the major attractions in Galle Fort, the restaurants and the shopping district. The villa just has 4 rooms, but the room is really cozy and is fully furnished with TV, wifi, very nice shower and toilet. The staff is really thoughtful and considerate, and we arrived during the Sinhalese New Year period. Special shoutout to Imran, he is so kind to accede to our requests. Breakfast was really wholesome, regardless whether you are dining in, or you are taking away. One of the best places we stayed among the many accomodation we had in Sri Lanka!
Clean, no frills, comfortable. ”
The room is very spacious, with a very large bed surrounded by a mosquito net. Hot water, clean bathroom, sitting space on the terrace, friendly staff, huge breakfast, smack in the middle of Fort Galle. What else could you ask for?
Great staff, room, breakfast and location”
The review title nearly says it all. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful, the room is fine apart from a slight issue with the curtains and above door windows not darkening the room. If anything, breakfast was just too much food, although it was delicious.
Beautiful hotel with great service and excellent breakfast”
We really enjoyed our stay at Fort Bliss. The location is great, the service is very good, and the breakfast was excellent. They also let us do our laundry for free. We would definitely stay there again.
Great stay ”
Arrived in the afternoon on a very hot day. Staff were very welcoming, easy check in with refreshing drinks. Hotel staff showed us to our rooms and advised of all facilities in the room. Hotel is in a great location near the lighthouse, in the middle of all the nice streets and shops, everything is within 5-10 minute walk. Rooms were very clean, nice AC, great shower and very comfortable bed. We only stayed one night as you don’t need more than one day in Galle, hotel breakfast was amazing and the chef asked us what we would like, all freshly prepared. I would definitely stay in hotel again due to its great price, location and service. The hotel staff even organised a taxi for us to travel to Bentota the next day (7000SR,2hrs)
Best option within the Fort area.”
If you want to stay in Fort Area while in Galle, don't look beyond Fort Bliss Villa. It is a small old Portuguese style property located near the light house and the sea. 1.5 kms from Galle Bus Station and Railway Station which can be reached in 10-15 minutes or tuk tuks are available from SRL 100 to 200 depending on your bargaining skills. The room is small but has all the required facilities with strong wifi. Their breakfast is the best with local hospitality. Sunil, the Chef, is there all the time to make you comfortable and meet your all the need. Thank you Sunil for taking good care of us. Highly recommended.
Keith from Canada”
We stayed for two nights and were very satisfied. Very helpful staff - they did our laundry on a complimentary basis! Good location very close to the the ramparts. Stupendous breakfast. Rooms are quite satisfactory but without much of a view - they all face onto a small inner courtyard. Excellent value for money.
This boutique hotel is value for money. Each of the four rooms are well appointed and hold a charm that makes them comfortable and inviting. Small details include comfortable beds including good quality pillows, great juice cocktails at breakfast and a feeling of generosity. Breakfast is excellent and generous. Coffee and tea is available on request throughout the day free of charge. We took all the upstairs rooms for our family of six. The sea view room is the same size as the one next to it. The other room is the largest and there is place for an extra bed there. Downstairs I'm told has two single beds. Air conditioning works well and there is also a fan with mosquito netting if needed.
Perfect stay in Galle”
Situated in an ideal location, within easy walking distance from all the attractions in the Fort, and only a couple of steps away from the wall. A wonderful relaxing stay in a very comfortable room. The staff are a delight, and breakfasts are generous as well as delicious. Fort Bliss is a real gem!
Beautiful historic property”
This boutique hotel has only 4 rooms and is truly boutique. It is beautifully restored and appointed, is in a perfect location overlooking the fort wall and the Indian Ocean and is run by fantastic staff who are very attentive. In addition, the breakfast was superb - best fruit platter we had in Sri lanka with a lovely omelette to follow, plenty of toast, fresh juice and yogurt. Would stay here again and again.
Great location m at the lighthouse”
Lovely breakfast. Friendly staff.
Lovely guest house in the fort”
Really liked fort bliss.Had a nice room upstairs overlooking the sea and the fort wall for the sunset.Room was very clean and pretty.Food for breakfast was to die for and the staff were always asking if they could do anything for us.Would recommend.On the higher scale of prices for Sri Lanka but you are right in the fort.You pay for what you get.Very happy
Thank you for staying”
Staff is good. Rihan-san, Thank you for kind our staying. Near by light-house.If going to Gole, recommended this hotel. 20 min.from railway station by walk. Good Staff,Delicious breakfast, and kind staff. Strong recommend !
Nice little boutique hotel with basic rooms and friendly staff”
With a perfect location, this little boutique hotel is great for a night or two while you check out Galle. Staff are very friendly and the rooms are satisfactory. The building is lovely and overlooks the fort wall. Only issue we had was internet not working, despite repeated requests for it to be fixed. No dining options or bar, it's really just a room, but if that's all your after then it's perfect.
We arrived at 2am, staff were still really friendly. Throughout the 2 night stay, all the staff were always friendly. Charming place, and the place is generally clean. Just next to the rampart, so location is really good. The fort area is not that big, so everywhere else is pretty walkable.
Nice place for Galle Visit”
Villa in the fort next to the beach. Really nice place to watch sunset and hear the waves and the wind. Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. Only four rooms available. So living room not crowded.
We stayed two nights in this hotel. We fully satisifed to the hotel, such as excellent staffs and the boss, who provided very good services with dood working attitude. The location of hotel is very good which is near the sea side and the old city. Next time, we will come back again.
Very pleasant place inside the fort of Galle”
Fort Bliss Villa is a very small but charming hotel. The few rooms are very nice, the water is hot, A/C works well. There is even a mosquito net protecting the bed. You can see the city walls and the sea from the balcony. Located in the heart of the old Galle fort, it is very easy to walk around the city from there. The owner is very nice and does a fantastic breakfast.
A good choice for staying over Xmas”
We stayed over Xmas eve and day and we're pleased with our decision to do so. The location is perfect to explore Gaulle and the adjacent ramparts . Whilst some may consider the amenities basic, for us it was just what we both wanted and expected. We will stay again if we return to Gaulle.
lovely hotel in town centre”
it was a very nice hotel in the old town in an old colonial house. nothing to complain about, staff was nice and helpful, rooms were clean, and the wifi was working in the room most of the time(a luxury as we realised during our hols). the breakfast was probably the best that we had in sri lanka. a room on the first floor would have probably been nicer but i really can't say anything against the ground floor room either. i can only recommend it!
