Home away from home

It's history, the wonderful staff who never forget you, it's feeling of comfort and removal from the hectic chaos outside its walls.

This was my 3rd stay at the GFH in 9 months. On my first visit to Sri Lanka last November I stayed a week. Then June this year I returned with the intention of living here, because I fell in love with Sri Lanka, staying initially at GFH. Now staying south of Galle, a return to Colombo and GFH was a welcome change and a chance to shop. The welcome I received from all the staff, from reception to doormen to restaurant waiters was fantastic. The quality of every detail in this hotel is an experience not to be missed. It is does not have the modern atmosphere of neighbouring hotels, but its colonial grandeur is impressive. When the older wing has been refurbished, I know it will be even more luxurious. I will make monthly trips back to GFH because of the standards it maintains.

Unusual to find a hotel in the middle of a city with such traditional routes, whilst still maintaining modern comforts

So far so good for a business travelers. With the location near to embassy, a shopping mall, and the people there are well versed with English speaking. I'm quite satisfied with the stay, especially the staffs there are polite and prompt in response.

Historic hotel centrally located.

Ocean view rooms, excellent buffett breakfast, historic
9
Historic hotel on the watefront with elegant, spacious rooms. Staff is ok, not outstanding but servicable. Food especially the breakfast buffet is worth it with a wide variety of choice. The only complaint is the remodeling as portions of the historic part of the hotel are blocked from view which is a tad disappointing. Watch out for the con artists on Galle face road who claim they work at the hotel (or one near it). Overall a good experience, go for the historical charm and quirkiness. Remember there is a supermarket across the street at the Cinnamon hotel basement so you can stock up on supplies there.
