Having stayed at the Galle Face a number of times previously we looked forward to our recent visit at the end of our 7 week holiday in February. Despite the ongoing restoration of part of the hotel we were not disappointed.
A beautiful seafront,colonial hotel, the Galle Face oozes character, history and charm. The staff are very friendly and helpful in all areas of the hotel. The manager introduced himself to us and told us a little more of the history of the hotel.
There is a lovely choice of food at the poolside bar,....also a great spot to enjoy a drink at sunset, and the breakfast offers an array of Western and local dishes. There are also very comfortable terraces inside overlooking the lawns and pool area.
The rooms are always comfortable and well appointed, (and quiet despite the work going on outside)
Always a pleasure....we will be back.
