This is a very nice guest house
This is a great location, right across from beach path and in the hub of shops and restaurants in Negombo. The manager was exceptional, going out of his way to find me a full service salon and everyone was welcoming and helpful

Relaxed place to stay, close to beach, restaurants
Friendly, clean, helpful, excellent breakfast. My room had its own balcony, a bit near the road, but I slept well. Very good value.

8/10 Very good

Great position for the beach and restaurants.
For what we paid, we were delighted with the room, large bed with mosquito net, good sized bathroom and shower, lovely balcony with comfy chairs and a table. That made for a super place to have a sun downer before going out to eat. The beach being literally just over the road meant you could leave valuables in the room and go and swim and return for a shower.

10/10 Exceptional

Exactly as described
Super quick check-in, big room (I stayed in #3, non a/c), comfy bed, nice bathroom and mosquito net (you need it!). There was a light damp smell in the air and we didn't have a TV like other people but we didn't need it. Cute sitting area in front of the room, quiet but central location, close to everything you need and to the airport. Wifi was strong in the public area but not in the room but this is mentioned in the hotel description and we didn't really need it anyway. Great value and I would stay there again

Nice hotel.
Really appreciated having a very early breakfast provided and being driven to Colombo to catch the 7am train. Travellers dont forget when staff go that extra mile.
