We were aware that the Queens Hotel was a sister hotel to the Galle Face Hotel, Colombo so mistakenly expected the same quality of hotel. How wrong we were!
The room was colonial in style but needed a good clean and redecoration. We were overwhelmed with the smell of moths balls which brought on asthmatic symptoms in my partner which I haven't seen before.
From the bathroom in our room to the toilets at the bar, amenities all needed a good overhaul. Can't stress how dissapointing this was.
The hotel cannot be blamed for the noise of the crows and traffic which keep you awake all night, however it was exceptionally bad. Even the breakfast was poor!
The only positive statement we can make was that the staff were friendly and helpful and trying their best to help you have a pleasant stay.
