Galle, Sri Lanka
"This hideaway has a calm that attracts writers - including Paul Theroux and Alexander McCall Smith. The interiors have an elegant traditional look, with four-posters draped with white chiffon."
"...the Galle Fort Hotel is a cool conversion of a 17th-century Dutch merchant's house with a laid-back vibe. It's the sort of place that means to detain you - and nearly made me miss a plane."

“Loved our time at Galle Fort. After a morning spent exploring Galle we generally returned to the hotel to spend time enjoying the beautiful pool, and later those great Galle Fort signature cocktails. Breakfast also very good.”

“We stayed in the Admiral suite which was perfect for us. Two adults on bottom floor and the kids (10 and 12) on the balcony. Great to be close to the pool. The room was lovely, shabby chic. However, the floor of the upstairs bedroom was just (beautiful old) timber and the person staying upstairs kept odd hours and walked around in shoes a lot and played his music in the small hours, we had fairly broken nights. The breakfasts were to die for. Try the kurd. Oliver, the manager, was very helpful on arrival. It is pricey here, but beautiful.”
