Everything about this hotel is perfect. Even though it is in the middle of a busy city , once you enter the room you feel relaxed. We booked this Hotel for our wedding and would recommend to everyone.

We had a room at the back of the hotel so no sea views! Staff were helpful at all times, but I agree with other people that it is slightly jaded and needs an up date. However rooms were serviced early and always to a high standard. Food was average. Breakfast had a variety of options but no muesli, unflavoured... More

This a nice, comfortable hotel although the rooms are a bit out dated. Service is good. The location is perfect, the view from your room on the ocean side of the hotel is magnificent. Buffet restaurant in the hotel is OK but crowded for breakfast.

While the Galadari has a few theme restaurants, the arabic restaurant Sheherazade is a true authentic experience of arabic cuisine to be found in Sri Lanka. The dinner buffet to which I took one of my guests from the UAE, was well presented with many nice dishes and desserts. The chicken shorba was quite flavorful and and the nice selection... More

Its a nice hotel and if you are with family or a group of friends you shall have a nice time. Its a little old in comparison to the newer hotels around so it sums up to be a 4 star deluxe and not a 5 star hotel as per our experience. Having said that, nothing takes away the pleasantries... More

When we recently stayed 2 nights; we found the service quite inconsistent. Front desk at check-in was quite unfriendly and the tone would even probably be construed as rude by some. Concierge was friendly and helpful. Depending on which housekeeping staff you spoke with, you may or may not get your request attended to. Staff at the ground floor international... More
