Impressive experience and staff”
A Very impressive stay The hotel is located in the center of Galle Fort and it used to be an warehouse many many years ago The room is different than normal five star hotels but as clean and cozy. The staff was really helpful and smiling all the time. And they gave us a special tea during check out which was a surprise.

Haven of tranquility - great location - superb ”
We stayed a couple of days in this lovely hotel and truly enjoyed it. The place is stunning with a nice pool. The location is perfect to discover the old town. The rooms are charming. The food is great and staff is super helpful. We had an issue with one of the tour guides they advised and took full responsibility. Highly recommend

Good service ”
The manager and other staff were kind and helpful, decoration is nice as well, but the facilities are old and lack of maintenance. Be careful when you swim because the edge of swimming pool is very sharp

Fantastic Service”
We had a amazing stay at Galle Fort Hotel, Zameer the manager was so hospitable and welcoming. He let us leave our bags all of the following day after checkout and also use the facilities to change before our evening flight. Will be coming back for sure!

Very poor service, especially by Samir”
service was slow and poor. the ultimate disappointment was the treatment meted out by the manager Samir. The GM was wonderful but he wasnt around. two interactions with Samir were enough that I will never go back to this hotel.

Aaaaa”
This was a beautfully reconstruction Our criticism was two-fold 1. No reception desk leading to chaos re checking out, ordering of taxi's with no-one in command 2. Poor bar service - provided by the same member of staff was ultra slow (1/2 hour to get served) and breakfast equally slow and to top it all - our order for banana bread did not end up on the table, but because the service was so slow, there was no time and little inclination for us to put this right 3. Despite requesting the bill, breakfast and a large tuk tuk to be ready for our departure, none of this had been attended to; comically the Gardiner came to our assistance and got our tuk tuk whereas the front of house staff didn't have a clue 4. While we booked a room for three, when we arrived, the booking was only for two resulting in a rather expensive $100 charge for our son - not good value or what we expected from the hotel/argoda

avoid at all costs”
this hotel prides itself on its historical feel but unfortunately that stretches to the décor and facilities too. the room was old, dirty and full of dust whilst the pool looked positively unhealthy. I was forced to check out early for the health of my family. staff were friendly
