HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Although we had enjoyed our stay at the Galle Face Hotel 2 weeks earlier, we had very good experiences with Taj in India and decided to try the Taj for our final night in Sri Lanka. Its location isn't as good (no direct ocean access) and doesn't have the old world feel of the Galle Face Hotel, the Taj manages...

Everything about the stay was excellent: location, arrangements, room, pool, and above all the breakfast buffet. Staff were immensely polite and helpful and the hospitality rates among the best across any hotel chain.

Doesn't have the ambience of the Galle Face and the rooms are bland and relatively small. Pool area is nice but no protection from the wind. The great thing about this hotel is the food. You can go into any of the restaurants and get great food. Even poolside. Last night I was in an adjunct to the Indian restaurant...

The hotel is by the side of the the beach, and excellent view of the beach. It has good architectural features and good ambience. The staff is courteous. Food is excellent particularly fish variety. We only had a few hours of overnight stay but we enjoyed the stay.

Pool on the back is in partly shaded (by trees) and very calm area. Buffet was very elaborate and delicious, staff is caring and if you are...
