Aged hotel, gone way past it's expiry. Everything was worn down and ancient; not to the standard you would expect given it's cost. The customer service was diabolical- they never responded to my email about lost property. We only stayed there for a friend's wedding but moved to the Kingsbury Hotel, across the road, which was a relief.

It is a shame to see how such a formerly well-known and ideally located hotel is allowed to slide into mediocrity; the owners obviously are not bothered to at least maintain and keep up the existing hotel infrastructure ... Whilst the lobby area is all nice and neat ..once you get up to the rooms the picture changes. Mouldy wallpaper,...

Basically the Gold Hotel name at the entrance is an indication of the let down to be expected. - Broken letter. Filthy stained carpets, pealed stained...

Hotel is good, by and large staff is good and supportive. But a person named Sanan, Front Office Manager is very rrigid and non supportive person. He does not understand the need of the customer. No flexibility.

Located close to the gall face green at the very heart of Colombo. Friendly helpful staff. Food is average( I was there for an academic session. May be the menu they have selected). Overall expression is good.

The hotel location is very good but our room was northern face, so the sea view was not possible than the southern face. Room was cleaned, wide screen TV,...

Went for high tea with a group over a weekend and the spread was excellent. Good selection of food and beverages at a reasonable price. Service was good and staff are friendly. Baked Alaska was really good!
