We stayed here our last night before leaving Sri Lanka and booked the place because it was close to the airport and close to the beach and because it looked good on the pictures. It met our expectations and was very good value for the money. A nice big room with good beds and a little veranda with a view...

Pretty place - we had a room with our own "outdoor" patio view a nice view on the beach. breakfast was basic but on the beach though. good value for money. We spent one night after landing as it it closer to the airport than Colombo, and also more calm.

We stayed two nights with 7 people and was a great landing place. Very helpful and smiling staff clean and good price. Arrived after midnight and very helpful and efficient check in. Good place to find you Sri Lankan feet. We had a triple which had a huge lockable veranda with sea views. All three beds together so a bit...

Time your visit so you catch the Kite Festival – although they’re probably there all year round! Right on the sea – really nice staff – really nice balconies! Really interesting town - keep an eye open for the men that sell the hoppers from their tiny street stalls - yummy.

I booked for one night here so that I'm close to the airport. The place itself is attractive, it looks like it's recently been painted, a lot of rooms as far as i can see have their own balcony and AC and you are a short walk to the bottom of the garden to Negombo beach. However it is in...

The room we had was clean. Also the bathroom. You can walk on the beach. Swimming is dangerous. But that's everywhere on Negombo. Very nice garden, friendly persons and taxiservice. I came here in 2005, 2007, 2008 and 2016. It always felt like home. Good restaurant. If you like prawns; take the prawnscocktail!

We stayed here on our first night after a long flight. We booked in advance and they organised our transfer from the airport which was slightly pricey. The room itself was clean enough although very basic and quite dark. We had breakfast the next morning which was ok but not special.
