About Galle Face Hotel

Description

One of the oldest hotels east of the Suez, the Galle Face Hotel was established in 1864 along the seafront facing the famous Galle Face Green. Over the years, this iconic historic hotel has housed royalty and celebrities. It has survived many trials and stands testimony to the vibrant heritage and history of colonial Ceylon.

Today it is where old world charm meets modern, luxurious hospitality. The hotel has two wings known as the South Wing and the North Wing. The South Wing offers 84 rooms, some of which provide a spectacular view of the Indian Ocean. There are two restaurants, namely the 1864 fine dining restaurant and the Pool Bar, a gym, a spa, a library, and a unique saltwater swimming pool overlooking the seafront. The hotel is a about a 45 minute journey from the airport.

No visit to Sri Lanka is complete without staying at this elegant historic award winning hotel built in 1864. The hotel reflects the grandeur of a bygone era while offering modern comfort for today’s traveler.

Beautiful location
The architectural style of this hotel is colonial and the view over the ocean provides an unbeatable spot for sunset. Don't miss the taking down of the flag every evening to the music of bagpipes.

Farewell in style
We spend our last night of our 3 week visit at the Galle Face. It felt very luxurious. The rooms are good, staff is very attentive and friendly. We spend more in one day then a whole week in small guesthouses. But we felt like Queens.

So much potential
A very sad experience considering I used to visit this hotel in my childhood. The staff need to greet the guests and understand that they are here for us! The gym is very disappointing and half the machines don't work. There are no towels either! Signage is pretty non existent around the property and on several occasions in ended up in the staff area. No point adding preferences on agoda as the hotel doesn't even make a comment about them!! food was ok but cleanliness of our room disappointing and n set time would rather of booked at cinnamon grand across the road. Such a shame as this has so much potential as the grande dame of Colombo.
