The Breakfast,good spread.
Spacious areas. Huge bedroom with a balcony overlooking the sea. Our room had a very large jacuzzi bath and separate shower. Food was good and staff were helpful.
The management upgraded us after the smell of paint thinner made it impossible to stay in our original room.
The hotel was in remodeling mode with the entire Face Regency closed and blocking access to the Green. They were also painting rooms and the smell of paint thinner was noxious. These conditions should have been announced. I would not recommend this hotel.
- venue with history - location at the waterfront - breakfast
- concierge was not able to provide enough information
I liked almost everything of this beautiful Hotel
The only suggestion is to improve the WIFI connection which should be available in more areas of the hotel and in the rooms.
Lovely pool area and sunset view.
Outdated room, dark, not much natural light. However they are renovating.
Lovely salt water pool by the sea front, nice sea side bar, good restaurant and excellent beds. A lovely stay. And sunset view as well.
nice gym and pool area, location at the ocean
The huge renovation is coming to a close but I'm delighted that the hotel has retained its old colonial charm. Sadly the time-honoured "meeter and greeter" , aged in his nineties died very recently, but the hotel retained his services to the very end. The hotel general manager was attentive and nothing seemed too much trouble. We look forward to our next visit once the renovation has been completed.
Loved the generous breakfast, with fresh fruits and plenty of option. The swimming pool with stunning seaview is fab
We asked for a room with seaview and didn't get one. The service at the pool bar is bad: the waiters favours outside guests from hotel guests (45min to get our orders)
Room was great, even if a bit crowdy from the street, Staff very helpfull and proffesional, good English finally, food excelent mostly in reasonable price - you could find quite expensive dishes but there was a choice with better price as well.
That to stay 5h longer because of late flight we had to pay extra half of room price. In general Im just wondering why on SriLanka if want nice good quality Hotel you have to pay much more than in Thaliland, Vietnam, etc... This Hotel was too expensive - that is one biggest minus as for me.
After backpacking through India this was the ultimate treat after arriving in Sri Lanka!! Could not fault the place, the rooms were amazing, pool incredible, stuff unbelievably nice and the breakfast buffet... Out of this world. I want to go back... At the end of my trip haha!
The service is good in the restaurant although a bit slow at the bar outside. But you have to remember things are a bit slower in Sri Lanka... The staff are super helpful and always smiling. The food in the restaurant 1860 is exceptionally good as is the breakfast buffet. Highly recommended. They have the best pool in Colombo (not the biggest but with the best views for the sunset).
The experience at the spa was disappointing. The bed wasn't clean and the arrival to room wasn't smooth and the girl couldn't see that the bed still had oil on it from the previous customer. I have been to the Galleface 3 times and this experience wasn't at all what I've experienced in previous trips. The new taxi service, run by BMW (!) was extremely disappointing and not to the standard I have experienced before. Poor English, drivers didn't know where they were going and expensive. You're better off using Kangaroo Taxis. But if you want a nice car then I guess they're good for that. The hotel car services were much better before and in keeping with the hotel.
rooms are smaller and you can hear everything because insulation is very bad. The place is under construction.
must be in our to 5 hotel stays of over ~200 to 300 hotels. love the history and to service on this perfect located Place. go for a walk in the evening along Galle green. (Stayed at Room 2018)it was the perfect ending to our Sri Lanka Trip.
hmmm perhaps construction but was no problem at all.
The ocean suite was beautiful. The hotel is still undergoing renovation work however this didn't spoil anything for us at all. The view to the sea was amazing and the bathroom and bedroom were gorgeous. The hotel is still beautiful and will be superb once the hotel is complete. The staff are fantastic. The pool area is lovely and there are plenty of loungers for exclusive use by hotel guests. The in-house restaurant 1864 is lovely and provides very good value for money.
Location Gorgeous view and terrace with the Balcony Suite
2 power outages in the course of the night meant no A/C in our room and made for a restless night. After a week travelling around Sri Lanka this was the first place where we felt ill after visiting the restaurant.
The pool. The location. The sunset. The breakfasts. THE BED! So comfortable!
The service was outstanding! Lovely poolarea with an ocean wiev. Wonderful sunset. Really fine dining and almost the best breakfast ever. Expensive wines. A big part is under construction, but it didn't bother us. We had a 4 hour citytour with a private driver / guide in a comfortable BMW, can recommend that. He was a very safe driver and had very good knowledge about everything in Colombo. Colombo.
Expensive wines and a bit slow service in the poolbar.
We really enjoyed our stay at Galle Face Hotel. The hotel is a beautiful Colonial hotel, well preserved with a wounderful atmosphere. Very proffessional and serviceminded staff!
This hotel is part of the history of the city

Location and staff
The rooms were such a let down. The exterior teases with pomp and opulence until you get into the room which is basic at best. The biggest disappointment on our trip to SriLanka. Expecting Raffles and got Ibis.
Nice location with good views. Pool and terrace all good. Staff cater to derails. Shower in toilet so good, TV large.
Wifi is a bit slow.
Good location for Colombo. Bookings.com should have told guests hotel undergoing renovations.
Spa could not provide three quarters of the treatments that they advertised. Poor management.
