We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time!! The staff were very thoughtful and went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible..after asking our plans they went ahead and made us a goodie bag to take on our excursion at 5am in the morning. It was great that the staff always asked when b'fast/dinner should be served! The hotel is a relatively new establishment and is tasefully decorated with a central location which is an asset to its visitors. The hotel is maintained by a young energetic staff who gave us an impeccable service!!

Good upper range choice
We chose the Yara Galle Fort as an alternative to the higher priced hotels in the Fort area like Galle Fort Hotel. The room and the hotel overall was spotless and nicely decorated. Staff were helpful and friendly without being pushy. If we were to return to Galle we would definitely book here again.

Recommended hotel in Galle Fort
Would recommend a stay here for those looking for a hotel in Galle Fort. The premises is in excellent condition and the rooms are very spacious and new. The layout of the hotel could be better—the restaurant is in the front but the kitchen is all the way in the back, and air does not circulate too well in the patio. Otherwise this place is a very nice option with excellent service, beautiful premises, and a good value.

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.
