We first visited The Galle Face over 30 years ago and had a fabulous stay in this amazing historic hotel. So when we revisited Sri Lanka we thought we would go back. We arrived at lunchtime to a very disinterested concierge who said The Veranda was serving a buffet and that was our only option for lunch. The buffet was at best average and some of the dishes inedible. The service was poor and the entire building appeared unloved and run down. The hotel has an amazing position overlooking the sea and is potentially a beautiful hotel but would not be my choice of accommodation whilst in Colombo.
