Whilst today The Fort Printers is a chic, small hotel located within Galle Fort, the hotel building is steeped in history. As well as formerly operating as printers the building has also housed a school and so the 3 rooms in the main part of the building are named after subjects: History, Geography and Art and the suite (our top pick) is called the Headmasters Suite.
All these rooms have high, beamed ceilings and some have beautiful vistas across the roof tops of Galle.
Due to the popularity of the hotel The Fort Printers has acquired and developed an adjoining new wing as well as a villa which is located just across the road. There are 3 rooms in the new wing and they have a much more contemporary feel with polished concrete floors and more neutral décor. The villa is also contemporary and stylish and could certainly be hired exclusively for a family or party group.
The guests all dine together in the main building, so despite being divided by a street, there is a very communal feel.
