Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Susana Colombo

Shame about the construction!

from

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights in mid December 2005. We chose to stay in the new Regency wing. Externally, the hotel looks very grand. When we booked we were told that the work on the new wing would be complete, but on arrival this was not the case. On check in (in the evening) we were not advised that we could experience any disruption due to the work. We paid for a deluxe ocean view room, but when we looked out of our window we had a great view of the new pool bar area that was being constructed. We felt that we could live with it and we were very happy with the room itself. The room was very clean, the minimalist style was nice and the bathroom was really lovely. We spent most of the next day in Colombo so the construction didn't have an impact, but we surprised to find it still going on at 6:30 in the evening. The next morning we were awoken at 7:30 with the construction noise from just outside our window! We informed the reception staff when we were checking out who seemed to be surprised that we found it to be a problem. In the end, we didn't have a lot of time to pursue the complaint and received a 10% discount for 1 night of the 2 night stay.

Great Location

from

Chose the newly constructed ( partially under construction ) Regency Wing of this hotel after checking the website.

Worn out, but great travel desk

from

While it is a grand hotel, it needs some updating. Ask for the new wing, facing the sea if you choose to stay here. We had the Scandanavian suite which was good. Highly recommend using the travel desk, even if you do not stay there. Friends had recommended a particular drive - Shelton. Great experience (23 years with Galle Face), always smiling and helpful. His English is not so good, but enough to understand.

Loved it

from

So far, Galle Face has opened 5 rooms in the new Regency wing and I stayed at the Ocean deluxe room. The room is beautifully decorated with a very nice bathroom. I liked the small touches such as the complimentary fruit basket. Staff is extremely friendly although service at the veranda is a bit slow. TThere's a nice gym but I was very disappointed to find that the Spa was closed.

Wonderful experience

from

We stayed at the Galle Face when visiting Columbo and treated ourselves to the Ocean Spa suite in the recently restored and renovated Regency wing. For sheer quality in terms of space, facilities and service it would be hard to beat. The hotel has an ambience all of it's own, with a long history as a hotel, and some of the fixtures and fittings are evidence of this. This lends a certain charm to the place. However, the restored rooms are luxurious. We had a huge room with great ocean views, huge private terrace with sunloungers and hot tub, a jaccuzzi and rainfall shower cubicle in the bathroom, four poster bed, and almost our own personal staff who genuinely could not do enough to serve our every need with a smile. The buffets are excellent in the Seaspray restaurant, tho the service elsewhere was a little slow. It was lovely to see the squirrels around the breakfast tables, and also the seemingly never ending procession of wedding parties having their photographs taken in the grounds. We loved the whole experience.

Great place to stay!

from

I loved this hotel. Excellent location and wonderful staff.

Would recommend it to anyone visiting Colombo.

Comfortable Old-Fashioned Charm

from

We stayed in December 2004, our first stop on a tour of Sri Lanka. I have never had such a huge hotel room! It was very old-fashioned, with lots of wood and a bathroom with more character than comfort; we loved it. Large, comfortable bed.

the general atmosphere was of bygone luxury. Not too much had been updated, but it hadn't been allowed to moulder away either. You could easily spend hours happily relaxing in the terrace bar - OK, I admit it, we did. Breakfast was splendid, a huge amount of choice and excellent quality.

It was lovely to be right by the sea while staying in the city.

No question about it - we'll stay here again on our next trip to Sri Lanka.

Great location and ambiance

from

We stayed at the Galle Face in December 2004. There are better hotels in Colombo, but the Galle Face has a ambiance that is hard to beat, the food is great and the buffets good value. The rooms are large and clean with views worth the stay. The pool was closed for renovations while we were there, but otherwise the renovations didn't affect our stay. The staff were friendly and helpful and service was good, I have to say it was much better than we exprected after reading other reviews. I would stay there again.

Great Treasures

from

I stayed at this hotel in February 2004

Is there anywhere else?

from

Okay, so there are more luxurious hotels in Colombo, but can anyone really want to go to Colombo and not experience the majesty that is the Galle Face.

Just get yourself a Panama hat, learn to drink Pims and sit on the Terrace Bar of the Galle Face looking out over the Indian Ocean. There can be few more graceful and peaceful experiences in the world.

Big (old-fashioned) rooms are clean and comfortable. The water pressure for the showers on the top floor is not too good, but who cares! This is about atmosphere. Let the breeze cool/warm your wine on the ocean-front restaurant and then fall asleep with the sounds of the ocean lapping onto the hotel walls below you.
