About Galle Face Hotel
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.
Sitting in the heart of Colombo the Galle Face Hotel is brilliantly situated to explore the city. Must see sights include the Gangaramaya Temple, which is one of the most important temples in Colombo and is only a 5-minute drive from the hotel. You are also a short drive away from the Independence Memorial Hall located at the Independence Square in Cinnamon Gardens and 10 minutes from the Pettah neighborhood with the infamous Pettah Market. Within the hotel there is also an historic tradition of croquet and Pimms.
Galle Face Hotel, originally built in the 19th century, is a luxurious property located in Colombo Fort that looks out onto the Indian Ocean.
