Stayed 1 night in September 2013
Location, food, size of room
There was a wide choice of food available (both Eastern and Western cuisine). When I arrived at the hotel with a print out of my reservation, the single room which I had booked was not available. It appears that they had allocated my reserved room to someone else. At this point, I stood in the reception while 4 people spent 20 minutes struggling to check me in. Eventually they gave me a double room (at no extra cost) since the single room I reserved was not available. The most disappointing was the attitude of one of the staff members - who kept pestering for for 100 rupees so he could go and buy a drink! I note that I have left it quite late to write this review and I hope that since this happened their staff have been trained properly.

Friendly colonial style hotel.
The friendly & helpful staff, the old colonial style and the location.
As returning guests at this hotel it's always nice to be back. The staff is extremely friendly & helpful and the rooms are oldfashioned and comfortable. The location is also great, overlooking the Colombo harbour.

GOH was OK and met my requirements
Location, history
GOH has a great history but is in bad need of updating. Rooms are very big. They tried to downgrade me when I first arrived and, talking to other people, this regularly happens. When I questioned it they immediately changed my room, blaming the "system". Rooms are huge but pretty much empty. Furniture, such as there is, is old and uncomfortable. Bed was OK. Bathroom was very basic. Staff are all friendly but not necessarily very good.
