      The beach, the swimming pool, the peace.

    • 8.8

      Amazing service and staff, great pool, good breakfast. Amazing in-room bathroom!

    • 8.8

      The ocean and beach. Pool was nice. Room ocean view. Staff. Untouched long beach strip. The burger in Pepper restaurant was nice.

      Breakfast (eggs) - not nice. All other breakfast was good.

    • 8.8

      Very nice & romantic hotel for honeymoon. Staff friendly and polite.

      Open Toilet in the room very bad. No private sandy beach

    • 7.8

      The sea facing rooms are very well appointed, stylish & clean. The swimming pool area is idyllic.

      The main attraction is Galle which is 13km away. The mattresses seem to need replacing. The staff, whilst friendly spend a lot of time standing around in groups, chatting to one another rather than attending to customers' needs (particularly male restaurant staff). "3" restaurants boasted of are in reality only one with three areas, we saw only one menu.

      Good bed.

      Very bad food (Too much peper. I eat pizza for all two days). The room was very disgasting, humid and slipery. All the clothes and bed are humid. The bathroom was dirty. The room was dirty and dark. No comfort at all. The sofa is no comfortable, the tv is in the bad position (You can not watch by the bed). Completelly bad experience. They are crazy about prices. This the worst place that I had stay in all Sri Lanka (I stay 2 weeks in more than 10 hotels). The fort is like a prison. No beach, no place to stay, its a shame. Very bad experience. I had paid more than 300 dollars per night. The meals custs more than 50 dollars per person. Didn't vallue 10 dollars. It was an absurd !!!

    • 9.6

      Just got back from Sri Lanka, stayed at the Fortress for four nights. Really pleased I found this place, it came highly recommended by friends. Went with no expectations and was very pleasantly surprised with the high standard this hotel has. Had a certain calmness about the place, the service, the rooms and good food. If you are looking for a quiet break away from it all,then I would highly recommend this place. Choose the Ocean view rooms, they are lovely
