Fantastic location!”

We loved staying at Fort Dew Villa, and extended our stay an extra night. We spent most of our time watching the locals play cricket and fly kites along the fort wall from our balcony. The restaurant upstairs has an even better view and good food too. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. A great place to stay in Galle.

Great spot ”

location, the staff, the views

I loved the people that run this spot are kind, helpful, accomidating, funny, and relaxed. The food was fresh and delicious, the rooms were clean, comfortable and quiet. The location is unbeatable if you're traveling in this region I recommend this spot. It's on the farthest west facing point of the fort which makes for a great spot to drink a beer and watch the sunset or take a short walk to the wall that you can walk around on and enjoy this living worl heritage site. The fort walls over look the Indian Ocean and there are many excellent restaurants in the fort as well as shops. I really liked that the hotel is inside the fort it made for much less road noise than spots outside the fort. Local expats think very well of the people who own and operate this hotel/restaurant as well. I met a handful Local people That considered this a favorite spot for drinks and dining. Additionally, the manager connected me with a driver who helped me travel around. I had an awesome experience here. It's not a fancy hotel, but it is clean,quiet, and comfortable.

Fort Dew Villa is very well positioned near the ramparts with a restaurant upstairs with great views. The staff were very helpful and the food was good. It was also possible to get a beer. The rooms were quite small but with a comfortable bed, good bathroom and a small table and chairs outside on the verandah/outside corridor.

Pleasant Surprise”

Great quiet location within fort walls. Roof top breezy bar/dining area great choice of food

After travelling round SL staying at a variety of guesthouses which did not always compare favourably with their internet photographs Fort Dew Villa was a pleasant surprise all round. We had a lovely stay and wished we could have extended it.

Friendly staff & rooftop dining”

We had the pleasure of staying 3 nights at Fort Dew & found Galle Fort to be an excellent "base" for exploring the area. The 2am airport pickup & super-early check in were much appreciated. Our room was simple, comfortable and clean. Highlights were the open rooftop dining area, outstanding local breakfast & balcony hammocks for an evening read. Highly recommended.
