Not bad hotel to stay

The room was nice and service perfect. The hotel outside was crowded and not that great. There are people sleeping on the streets and terrible traffic on the road outside. Took a Ling time to get back
7.7
Overall the stay was great but the expense was not worth the price paid. The advertisement was overrated an price was too high. However the hotel staff was very polite and helpful but not overly enthusiastic about helping us make dinner reservations. I asked for a dinner reservation to be made but when the time came out reservation was in existent

A hotel that made a business trip into a holiday

colonial ambiance, public spaces, sunset by the pool
9.3
I chose the Galle Face because I was bringing my husband along on my business trip and wanted a nice place. Galle Face was the perfect choice. I had been hesitant based on reviews renovations: well THEY ARE OVER. It's fully open, fully restored and resplendent. We loved it. The ambiance of a bygone era seeps through every inch of the place and you just feel relaxed by being there. But it's got all the mod-cons necessary for a luxury hotel whether for business or pleasure. Plenty of plugs & good wifi for work. A myriad of public spaces incl. the library; the two lobbies; other small sitting rooms; the bar down by the seafront - fabulous for watching the sunset or enjoying a drink in the evening. The pool is large and clean. The main restaurant is a fabulous semi-open space next to the famous and beautiful tiled verandah - the meals there are all buffets. Good quality food; selection could be better. One negative - the "egg man" at breakfast really could do with a personality implant as he's pretty sour! But he was the only unfriendly member of staff we came across - most others were delightful. At breakfast you can watch the groundsman with the catapult scaring off the crows and watch the squirrels running around. There is a small (uneven) croquet lawn for a fun game (made more exciting by the lumps and bumps!). There is an average hotel gym; a spa; a business centre. The rooms are all different - I would recommend going for an ocean view more because the non-ocean views are closer to the busy Galle Face Road and the whole hotel is low rise so noise is more of an issue.

Overprized, not super clean but good location

location, pillows and views

Like so many other places on Sri Lanka, Galle Face Hotel is overprized for what you get... The hotel business is slowly catching up.. Stayed two nights in two different rooms. Second night I payed for an upgrade to "superior ocean view", but then I lost the tub I had in the first room that was cheaper.. Weird. If I had to choose I would take the first room again.
