The city centre bus stop and train station is a few kilometres and a short trishaw ride away from the hotel.Galle is the largest and most important city in the South of the island.

Its significance is derived from fortress of Galle, built during the Dutch Colonial period nearly 400 years ago. Within this charming town one is transported back to a lost world of cobblestone streets and gabled houses. Within the fort dungeons, museums, and churches along with the Galle Lighthouse and awe-inspiring ramparts contribute to making this a city with a character.
