Nice hotel, delicious food

Review by Tls1128 Colombo, Sri Lanka

My family and I stayed there for couple nights. Delicious food and super nice to staff. My children loved the Beach which is surrounded by rocks...

What keeps it from 5 star is because the room we checked in at the first time was not clean, bugs under the table and in the bathtub. Then the moved us to second floor. Also every time when we trying to use the telephone in the room to call someone and nobody answered. Besides this everything is good.

Jetwing Hotel Group's Crown

Review by Max J Colombo, Sri Lanka

This iconic hotel, another creation of the legendary architect Geoffrey Bawa, is located in close proximity to the town of Galle in the South of Sri Lanka and by the side of the main road to Colombo. It borders the sea, unfortunately most of its beach frontage is rocky (yet adding colour to the hotel) with a little stretch of sandy area. With foreign tourists yet unseen due to the Corona pandemic, the hotel has opened its doors to the local clientele at concessionary rates, while strictly observing medical guidelines...

The hotel has 78 spacious rooms, all facing the sea, and 7 suites. Each room has a balcony (and covered patio for ground floor rooms). Two 'infinity' swimming pools and a very large lawn filled the grounds. The property is under Priyanthika, a hands-on manageress, who greeted us with a hand-written welcome note - quite a touching and unusual gesture. I must commend Alwis, the steward at the restaurant, who took pains to see that my wife got the special meals that she had to take due to illness.

Overall good

Review by Vimukthi1990

Overall a pleasant stay. Location is perfect as close to galle fort and city. Staff were friendly...

Rooms were comfortable. However, needs to improve on small details of the room . Some amenities were not there. Certain doors wont close properly. Ideal if the room service is bit more swift.

probably one of the best sunday buffets in Galle

Review by Santanna_de_Alwis London, United Kingdom

Sunday Buffets in Galle have definitely got to be at the much upgraded & beautifully set Cardamon restaurant at Jetwing Lighthouse , Galle. The new Food & beverage/restaurant Manager manager ( Nishantha )has definitely had a massive impact on the quality & selections of the food. The meats are perfectly roasted, the selection of Sri Lanka varieties just prefect without overdoing it, and being too spicy The deserts are still looking for improvement as many restaurants in Sri Lanka try to create classic European desserts without too much attention to the details, however im sure they will get there with this management team
