Comfortable room and helpful staff”
We first booked just a night here, but decided to extend it to two nights. The room was clean and spacious. The shower was probably the best shower (with proper water pressure) during our whole trip. The only minus point was probably when we asked for a late check-out with payment for 5pm as we had to leave to the airport at 7-8pm. We agreed to pay 2,500 rupees (which was almost half price of a one night stay) for the late check-out, but on the actual date the staff came to us and said that for that price we could only stay until 3pm (according to his boss). We were quite disappointed and they actually lost money because nobody came to check-in after us. The young main staff was very nice and tried to help us with everything, but he didn't speak English that well.
Quiet Street in City Center”
Great stay in a quiet street close to all the shops and restaurants of Galle Fort. The owner/manager was super friendly and helpful and made us a very nice hot breakfast when we woke up.
Nice location in fort, a bit hard to find”
The staff was nice to provide us hair drier, and told me the train schedule to Colombo. They are very helpful. The breakfast was standard. The location is nice in fort, close to the tourist sites, but abit hard to find.
Nice little hotel in Galle”
The rooms are clean and comfortable. Bathroom is western style (shower separated, tiled, ...). It is located less than 2 minutes away from restaurants and shops. The owner is really helpful. Overall, nice stay and good value for money!
A lovely little stay ”
We stayed here for the location in Galle Fort. The prices were reasonable and the rooms were lovely. They were clean, nicely decorated and the bed was comfortable. The staff were helpful and friendly. They arranged drivers for us to our next hotel which we used again to drive to Colombo. The breakfast was egg of your choice and toast, which set us up for a day of sight seeing. We would definitely stay here again, thank you!
Brand new hotel, good experience”
Very good. After 2 weeks vacation, we feel that we need a comfortable hometown meal, the hotel owner borrow us the kitchen to cook. The room is very clean and very close to fort which so easy to walk around day and night.
Nice and quiet and great location”
It was coming up to Christmas so it was hard finding accommodation in Galle Fort within our budget. Then we found Fort Thari Inn a small little modern guesthouse with only about 4 rooms, down a quiet side street right in Galle Forte. We were picked up from the bus station as the owner has his own tuk tuk although its not free we were charged 150 rupees and they will drop you back again too. The bathroom had a proper shower cubicle, the hot water was hit and miss but we found that all over Sri Lanka. Breakfast was nice a plentiful with string hoppers and toast. Its only been open a couple of months so they are still working things out. It has two rooms downstairs with a sitting room and upstairs is the kitchen with another couple of rooms (I think). We were the only guests at the time, we were only there one night but if your looking for something with a social atmosphere with other guests then I don't think this would be a place for you. The only thing I didn't like was the manager and his friend smoked in the kitchen and although they put them out when I went to get a cup of tea it still wasn't pleasant to be in a smoky kitchen. The other thing is the WIFI only had a strong signal upstairs, downstairs was practically none existent so they need to have another access point downstairs so guests can use the Wifi in their rooms or in the downstairs area. Overall its clean and modern and OK for one night.
Sparkling clean..friendly and thoughtful owner and staff. Ideal location in walking distance to all fort areas. Best of our stay in Sri Lanka
Nice welcome drink, grat location, nice staff, reasonable price
Fort Thari Inn Stay”
Pleasant stay Room on the surface looked clean but on closer inspection could do with a proper clean lots of dust and cobwebs Wash hand basin not attached to wall Good aircon Small room but ok for two days Very convenient for eating out Breakfast passable
Maybe better for younger travellers”
I found the staff a little young. One wanted to befriend me on Facebook within minutes and for me to stay up drinking beer with them. I had the room immediately next to the kitchen and they were up very early playing the television loudly and yelling into their mobile phones. However they were very friendly and accommodating. Good location right in the fort.
Great location homeish stay”
Staffs were very friendly . Although the room is bit small, but at least , it is clean. Very near by the sight seeing, restaurants are walking distance. Loving the balcony, no view but you can smoke there.
fair stay except for the indifferent house keeper”
This block of guest house is encircled by adjacent households on all sides, so it has little sunlight and no garden. All four rooms as maintain by a young house keeper.He was somewhat indifferent (perhaps because Chinese never have the practice of tipping) to us. He was reluctant to let us use its kitchen at fist by saying "need to ask his boss" then reject us at all without calling anyone. He was pushy to drive us away when it was only 11 am.
Very Disapointing, ”
We read the reviews on Agoda prior to booking, I think we where at a diffrent hotel,our the reviews are made up. Room dusty and floor dirty, toilet/shower filthy, toilet paper in window frame to seal the gaps,No hot water for shower (the guy had switched the boiler off never informed anybody) Breakfast no choise just slopped on your plate. We stayed at places of simular cost and 100% better, there need to tidy up there act. Would not recomend
Good for a quick visit to Galle”
I sent an email the day before arriving and promptly received a phone call explaining to me the best way to get there - very helpful guy. When we did arrive, I called the same number again but this time a younger man answered and we had trouble communicating in English. We were then shown to the room and while it was very nicely designed and kept, it wasn't very clean. The beds and sheets were fine but the floor was dusty (especially underneath the beds) and the bathroom had lime scale deposits in the shower and on the floors. The sink had also not been thoroughly cleaned, with fingerprints visible on the metal. The wifi then proceeded to strike until another guest complained and one of the staff called the internet provider. It's a decent place to stay for a quick trip to Galle, nicely located in a small street and within walking distance to the bus station and anywhere within the Fort. However, a little more effort could be put into making guests feel welcome once they have arrived (we weren't given any information about check-out or breakfast) and cleaning the rooms more thoroughly.
The room is good but the facility for kitchen we need to pay to use it. The places also a bit hidden in small road
Affordable and nice place”
This is a simple yet beautiful place to stay for couples. The place is well maintained. The staff is helpful. The only thing missinh is that they dont offer dinner just breakfast.
A nice stay”
Located in a quiet neighbourhood. Helpful Personnel.
Neat and clean with comfortable beds ”
Very good. In fact it exceeded my expectations. The entrance lane is not that attractive but the moment you enter the room it is super clean and comfortable to relax.
