Friendly colonial style hotel.
The friendly & helpful staff, the old colonial style and the location.
As returning guests at this hotel it's always nice to be back. The staff is extremely friendly & helpful and the rooms are oldfashioned and comfortable. The location is also great, overlooking the Colombo harbour.

GOH was OK and met my requirements
Location, history
GOH has a great history but is in bad need of updating. Rooms are very big. They tried to downgrade me when I first arrived and, talking to other people, this regularly happens. When I questioned it they immediately changed my room, blaming the "system". Rooms are huge but pretty much empty. Furniture, such as there is, is old and uncomfortable. Bed was OK. Bathroom was very basic. Staff are all friendly but not necessarily very good.

Not worth the cost of the room
Easy access to the new highway, so quick to the airport
The hotel claims to be a historic luxury hotel, which it may have been 100 years ago, but now it is old and in need of much renovation. There was no hot water and the quality of food was quite poor. I would expect to pay half the cost for the quality provided. Consider staying somewhere else.
