we spent 2 nights in total at this beautiful, charming and wonderful hotel. we just loved it with its great location in a nice city (forget about going to Negombo to/from the airport -hit straight to the wonderful Colombo instead!). We stayed in the newest wing in a deluxe spa room, which was quite small for the 5 of us but so worthwhile. acturally, we were offered a HUGE room in the old colonial wing, but it had none of that luxury feeling we found in the other part.
We stayed with our 3 children age 2,3 and 7 and it is not in particular chidlren-friendly, although staff loved the kids :-). But the view there and the whole thing is amazing. great buffet as well, both the dinner and breakfast. also, our kids ate for free, which was highly appreciated.
If we ever go back to Colombo, we would without any doubt stay at the Galle face hotel again - WAAAUUUUW!
