Enjoyed a family gathering on a Wednesday afternoon and was worth a visit. Good choice of savouries and sweets although it was missing eclairs, crasonnants and tarts. Having a prayer room is a plus too at this luxury venue.

Provide free internet for guests! The hotel is classy and with all facilities, probably could be a bit more reasonably priced. Gym is good, outside pool great, sauna's pleasant and clean. I simply can't understand why hotels like this will still charge exorbitant prices for internet use, while all guesthouses offer it free...

The Galadari is an old style Srilankan hotel, perfectly located by the seaside. The rooms are spacious and have amazing views of the ocean. Overall it is comfortable and has an old world feel to it- but the fittings need some upgrading and the place is in need of a 'mini' makeover. Facilities for charging phones/ laptops are limited and...

However, the room was quite shabby and some of the light fixtures did not work. The carpet was worn and questionable as to cleanliness. The bathroom needed serious updating, including a...
