            Comfortable stay in a neat hotel!”

            The hotel is located perfectly in the middle of the fort. You can reach everything within an short walk but still sleep calm. The room was clean (doppeldecker) and nicely furnished. The bathroom was big enough and modern. We tried the breakfast and it was good (fruit platter, sri lankan omlette, fresh juice, coffee/tea, Toast, butter, jam). Only a pool was missing, but you can swim at the beach nearby.

            Superb room in a lovely colonial property, right in the centre of the fort. Luxury for a very reasonable price. The only issue was that the laundry service was prohibitively expensive.

            A night in Galle: Galle was our last stop and we were wondering if we should go big..”

            And fancy.. or something more moderate. When we saw a deal on 56@decco we knew this was the best value we could get. When we reached the hotel it was perfectly located in the centre of the fort area. Couldn’t have picked a better location. The room had a funny smell when we arrived but the staff quickly took care of that. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. Water ran perfectly with hot water and great pressure. Wifi worked. A bit choppy. Staff were with big smiles and accommodating. Overall very pleasant. No major complaints.
