Galle Face Hotel is a heritage property that dates back to 1864. Once the mansion of a British Governor, this masterpiece of Victorian architecture was refurbished and reopened in 2006 and now offers a contemporary colonial feel. Its stately wooden panelling and Victorian rooms make it a tempting alternative to Colombo’s modern five star hotels.
Galle Face Hotel caters to the leisure as well as the business traveller. A wide selection of restaurants and bars is headed by the newly-renovated Verandah Restaurant. Watch the sunset with a pre-dinner drink in the Verandah Restaurant, or head to Inn on the Green for a lively pub atmosphere.
