    • 8.0.Very good

      Yara Galle Fort is a lovely little place off of the main touristy areas of Galle. There is a small garden on the interior where you can sit and read or take meals. The meals that I had were good. From the location you can easily access the ramparts on the western side of the fort. There are two rooms adjacent to the restaurant and lobby that can be a bit loud but otherwise it is quite comfortable.

      Beautiful hotel, stay for the breakfast

      Beautiful boutique hotel. Perfect location in the fort but quiet. Clean and well appointed rooms with comfy beds and nice showers to cool off after a day of wandering. The breakfast was amazing, I wish I could have it again! Staff were friendly and helpful. Was only there for a night, but no issues and would absolutely return.

      I had an awesome stay at Yara. The room, bed and bathroom were awesome and the people at the hote were amazing. From the time I arrived until I left they made sure that I was comfortable including specially preparing breakfast for me. Thank you Smith, Rizan and Lukkhana. Hope I got your names right. The location of the hotel was not far from the main entrance so getting in and going out were easy. I got in, dropped off my luggage and took a stroll to the rest of the fort area.

      Great food!!!!

      We loved the staff here, especially the chef. They are so warm and kind. Construction going in so a bit noisy. No alcohol but they have lovely high teas. Location good—you can walk to train station or town.

      Architecture of the building was interesting. The staff were generally helpful although we did have an issue with being overcharged for breakfast but they did fix that up quickly when it was pointed out to them.

      This is a lovely little boutique hotel that has been thoughtfully restored. Staff was attentive and very helpful. The traditional Sri Lankan breakfast was fantastic. The room was beautifully appointed and very comfy. The hotel is within walking distance to everything within Galle Fort.
