A wide range of food with a lot of non veg options for a very good price. Dont eat lunch if your planning to go there. Starts at 3.30-6pm daily. Food is halal so muslims dont have anything to worry about

hotel is very good with sea facing room, room size are quite large as compare to normal room size hotel is equipped with restaurant where morning breakfast is complementary. Food choice is good during dinner if you take buffet included in your room price for that you have to book hotel through agent or service providers (online)

The Hotel needs lots of updates. Staffs are friendly. This is not a hotel to go and stay with family. Majority of hotel guest are business men. the food was ok but if you really want to eat Sri Lankan food around this hotel area then i would walk over to Hilton.

Located in the heart of Colombo with a fantastic view of the Business District and sea. We were there for the new year's and the hotel was vibrant, brightly lit and bustling with activity and people from all over the world. The breakfast buffet is fantastic, although dinner and lunch have few options for vegetarians. Great rooms - spacious and... More

The hotel seemed a bit dated but clean and friendly. You can walk on the promenade by the beach 1 minute from hotel and is busy and safe. Food and service in the hotel was excellent, only downside was you had to pay for Wi-fi. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was very good and the restaurants were excellent and... More

We were at the Galadari for a conference and stayed a few extra days so we could explore Sri Lanka. We had a nice upper floor room facing the old parliament buildings. The warning sticker on the window about taking pictures of government facilities was a little strange. The staff was excellent and always helpful. Breakfast and dinner were included... More

Extremely helpful staff made my 3 months there very happy. Nothing was too much trouble. Food was very good and the restaurants were excellent and reasonably priced. Would happily return there if I ever do back to Sri Lanka

Had lunch and was quite impressed with the variety on offer at the buffet. Service needs a bit of improvement thought as it comes across as an average bistro where attention to details is lacking (one has to constantly ask for things to the waiters). Had the chance to visit a room which has past its time (despite them boasting... More

This place is OK for a weekend stay. The food at the restaurant was not up to the mark and I'm not new to Srilankan cuisine. They have a High Tea buffet at late afternoon, which was good compared to the breakfast buffet.
