We had a well deserved lie in on the 6th before we moved to The Fortress on the other side of Galle. Our guide dropped us at the hotel through some very fancy double gates like you would expect on a fort. The hotel design is based on a Dutch fort and is very grand, you don't need to leave the hotel complex, everything is here. The suite is over two …

... who was looking after it, due to the 'Fiesta' period the manager was away and so with my newly found negotiating skills we agreed on a bargain price of R3000 per night, it was amazing, nice big and clean, newly decorated rooms and bathrooms with proper 'home' style mattresses not just the flimsy ones we have become accustomed to lately with a balcony and sea view, it was a perfect find, we were very happy and this was to be our base for ...
How has this hotel rated in the past?
The loft room is amazing however if you look hard there are some rough bits, the hotel is having some minor renovations lets hope the problems get resolved.
