The pool is just the right size and clean. Serendib G. H. is near the sea and close walking distance to nice restaurants, shops and a...

The place is a bit inside (still very near from the beach) but it adds the advantage of noise free and calm atmosphere. The hotel has a nice, well maintained rooms and clean pool to enjoy. The management is run by a...

Serendib is a quiet guesthouse with a small pool. No noise and nice beds are the best of this hotel. We made an error in booking one room with one bed instead of two for our teenage children. The owner fixed that quickly by putting a matrass on the floor. The room is basic, bathroomlock was broken in both rooms...

My husband and I stayed here at the start of our trip in SL, arriving after landing. The guesthouse was clean and comfortable and we had a nice, warm welcome from the staff. The room was huge albeit a bit dark if you had a room with windows not over looking the pool like we did. The pool was small,...

We ended our holiday in Sri Lanka in Negombo and we were very pleased with this guesthouse. The rooms are very clean, the garden looks amazing and the breakfast is great too. The owner is very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended!

Our hopes were a little down when we reached the guest house as they were fully booked and said booking.com had made a goof up. But the lady running the show (I'll call her M) gave us her room for the stay instead. The room itself is Spartan yet big enough to accommodate 3 - incl our infant. Has a...
