Staff let down the hotel

Comfortable rooms, Good buffet, Central location
Staff at galadari are a let down. Starting from the reception where they barely greet guests with a smile. Check in and Check out staff do their jobs but fail to realise that they are in the hospitality industry. I observed one of the counter staff snap at an elderly lady who made inquiries regarding changing some currency, which appalled me. Good luck trying to get some food packed to go - which we needed done as we had an early start one morning. I was transfered 7 times from the reception, to #2, coffee shop, back to the reception, concierge, back to reception and finally the lobby manager. Who included had no clue how to get this done. After wasting all that time, I was asked to come all the way down to place an order where as our friends had gotten it done via the concierge. To cut a long story short - you need to be extremely stern and firm with them to get something done, which was the case for us where they ultimately did sort the order when I threatened to talk to the management and called their bluff. They apologetically said that the hotel was on full capacity and that they had received many complaints from guests inhouse. This however is not an excuse for the lag in service levels and processes neither should it change how staff treat guests. Having stayed at possibly all the 5 star hotels in Colombo, Galadari certainly doesn't live upto to its 5 star claim because of their staff. High time the management did something to train their frontline staff the basics of customer handling - from the doorman to bellboys and counter staff. Disappointing city hotel.

31st Night at Galadari

Location, Service at the Door
It was horrible 31st night we ever had. We were being informed that we can book for Gala dinner at the time of check in. But when we went to book, it was sold out. So we have to look for somewhere else to have our dinner, and finally we found a place but not up to the standard we needed outside of Galadari. Galadari should give their residence a priority to have dinner inside the hotel instead of outsiders to have dine in. Also when we went for the breakfast on 1st jan 2015, It was like a musical chairs. It was extremely hard to find a table to sit, and no glasses to have a soft drink. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking forward to have a great stay in Sri Lanka's Capital. Better Look for somewhere else. We have stayed over 15 hotels during 19days visit in Sri Lanka and this was the worst.
