2/10 Poor

Think twice when booking this hotel
I understand this is a very old hotel but need to keep up to the standards. When i checked in, there was only one towel in the bathroom and few hours later i managed to get two additional towles. The food was good.

6/10 Good

Booked on Catered for my family. FREE welcoming drink was nice in the hot weather. Waited for our extra bed to be put in the room as they mustn't have received my message, but I'd only sent it about an hour prior to our arrival. Bags were carried to our spacious, clean room with a balcony & city view. Bathroom was spacious, clean, had enough good quality towels for all of us with good hot running water for all of us. My only issue was upon checkout they handed me a bill for room payment even though I'd paid online with like i have in 50 countries. After we showed them our booking in conjunction with bank withdrawal & they made a few phone calls to the company it was sorted. Well they said they'd call if any issues. We did have our driver (we've had for 5days) with us communicating so I'm sure that helped.

We just finished a two week holiday in Sri Lanka and this was one of our least favorite hotels. Breakfast was not good - the rooms and bathrooms are very dated and could use an upgrade. Staff are friendly.

It’s a beautiful colonial building and it’s well situated, it requires some major renovation in the way the Galle Gace hotel has been renovated to make it more appealing
