This 5-suite boutique hotel was first a college and then a print shop, hence the name of the hotel and its suites - History, Geography, Arts, the Headmaster's, and the Prefect's which are all different in layout and design, but all spectacularly well-designed. This historical hotel was fully renovated in 2009 and welcomes guests in the lobby where 24-hour check-out service is also available. Facilities include air conditioning, a hotel safe, currency exchange, hairdressing salon, TV lounge, conference facilities, wired and wireless Internet access, room and laundry services, as well as a car park and bicycle hire. Guests can wine and dine in the café, bar or restaurant.
Galle Fort is a warm and breezy place, some streets bustling in the morning, but the afternoons and evenings are quiet and serene. The Fort is now a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are numerous restaurants, bars and shops in Galle Fort. Links to the public transport network are about a 10-minute walk away.

The restaurant offers a fresh and vibrant menu that uses predominantly fresh seafood and organic local produce. The chefs plan the menu for the day based on guests' preferences and lovingly create soups, mezzes, and mains comprising grilled fresh seafood, Mediterranean-inspired specialties, and traditional Sri Lankan rice and curry (which includes several vegetable dishes and at least one fish or meat curry).
