Lovely hotel, room was huge but very basic

Hotel Facilities and Grounds were excellent.
6
Overall the experience was reasonable, although I expected more of a 5 star hotel as the room was basic despite being large (very old air con unit, tiny CRT TV, wireless internet was terrible and had to be paid for). Although the majority of service was very good, I did have an issue with the male staff staring at my female friend. This was evident across the hotel and also when room service was delivered, to the point I put myself between the waiter and my female friend. This seems endemic to Sri Lanka where the male population will all stare at women, but I think some training should be given to the staff to let them know it isn't acceptable for international guests.
Shopping Tip: If you're not Sri Lankan, expect to be treated as a Tourist and prices will be dramatically inflated for this reason.

great hotel, very helpful staff, right on the sea front, get a room in the refurbished side of the hotel, regency wing is better rooms, amazing sea front colonial hotel, watch the eve's crashing against the sea wall, great pool and bars. hotel next to galle face green, lots of local eaterys, a must is the kottu roty stalls. great room, comfy bed, with a jacuzzi ....was freezing though! def recommend a stay here. charge for wifi!! should be free in this class hotel!

great hotel with a lovely view of the sea

centrally located,good service and good food.
6.7
our booking was for the classic wing but we were upgraded to the regency wing.the check in was very smooth.the service was prompt.the unpleasant thing was the presence of ants in the room.they should get the hotel fumigated routinely in order to maintain the standards.
Shopping Tip: try the lakhpahana for srilankan stuff as it is the cheapest.lakhshala is very expensive.also do try the food at the sea side...the nanas.also the food in the majestic city mall was pretty good for a bargain.

Good Location

Great Upgrade to suite next to pool
7.3
enjoyable for first couple of days of our holiday. a good location and great place to enjoy a beer watching the sunset over the beach with a lion beer. i recommend the seafood bbq buffet they have occasionally. breakfast is one of the best in sl with a wide range of options.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Go and see Ajith in the tourist office at the Fort Station to organise a tour round the island - he is brilliant
Nicola A. Business travelers Italy, September 9, 2012
Good Hotel good quality service

very good spa service
7.3
Good position, the quality of the room doesn't respect the price but you can enjoy the swimming pool and all the good service. The food is very good and the breakfast buffet is useful especially after a long travel in sri lanka eating only local food
Corinne M. Groups Australia, September 9, 2012
fantastic hotel, modern rooms, lovely staff

location was right on the beach and close to restaurants
9.3
We really enjoyed our stay, staff were very friendly, rooms modern and clean, breakfast could be improved, cooked food was always cold. Housekeeping staff need to be quieter outside rooms, especially when :do not disturb" sign is on

Andrew H. Couples United Kingdom, September 6, 2012
Great hotel, but needs some refurbishment;

Location very good;
9.3
Great hotel, with lots of notable visitors over its lifetime (there is a marble list on the reception wall). Room great with a fabulous view ofer the Indian oceon. The one problem was the dinner; expensive and limited choice.
Restaurant Tip: don't have dinner in the restaurant; there is a very good Italian restaurant at Cinnamon Plaza, less than 200 m from the hotel.
