Overpriced hotel

Dining area facing the sea

Galle Face Hotel is a hotel filled with tradition, history and culture. Many wealthy locals hold their wedding at this hotel. The restaurant faces the sea and is a good and relaxing place to chill out, read a book etc. The pool looks great too. However, the room is crappy. The toilet facilities looks like a 2-3 stars hotel standard max and has a stinky smell to it. The furniture are old school but can be forgiven since the hotel is "old-school".

Beautiful old colonial mansion. The old part of the hotel is due for a make over but still has its charm
Travel tip: The fine dining restaurant in the regency wing served lovely food
Timothy M. Families with older children Australia, December 21, 2012
Grand old building

Great ambience and well-situated
7.3
We enjoyed our stay. The staff were generally accommodating, but very busy over Christmas, so service suffered somewhat (e.g. Getting coffee at breakfast).
Restaurant Tip: The Sea Spray Restaurant does a very good seafood buffet.

historicaly important hotel, nice coastwise garden
6.7
We can feel and enjoy old colonial atmosphere. garden and pool locate nice place to see beautiful sun set in the Indian. The quality of service at reception and restaurant are barely passing grade level.

Hotel that is trading on its past glory.

The back garden, pool and sea aspect make it worth the stay and the cocktails are wondrously good.
5.3
The Galle face hotel is in a lovely spot with a beach front unparalleled in Colombo. The veranda and restaurant are lovely with good and attentive waiters serving decent food. The breakfast is good and varied, the bar food served all day is nice, I had the best mohito I´ve tasted and the Singapor Sling was also great. It´s lovely to sit out at any time of the day and watch and listen to the waves splashing, the city seems far and away. Our room was a deluxe classic, large and spacious but there is a feeling of decline. There are some nice pieces of colonial style furniture but also a smattering of 70s chairs and sofas that have seen better days, the bathroom desperately needs redecorating, the tiles have obviously seen better days so they have been painted over, floor, and walls. Cleanliness was also an issue both in the bathroom as in the room. The whole hotel looks as if it could do with a really good clean. The carpets on the stairs were matted with dirt and the walls down the stairs are painted in a 70s style uneven lava effect which is hard to keep clean at the best of times but has thick crevasses of dirt. We arrived at the height of the wedding season and were delighted to see a Sri Lankan wedding but they do 2 a day so on the third day it was feeling a little bit like ground hog day. My children loved the old fashioned lifts which were great fun. It´s a hotel that could be wonderful but isn't quite. It feels a bit lazy in it´s standards, believing that it´s enough to have been great in the past.
Restaurant Tip: Great cocktails
