This was the first stay in Sri Lanka. I am glad to have chosen Ocean View. It was a short 15-20 minute ride from the airport to the guest house. It is close by a few restaurants and other businesses. The check-in was quick and easy. I was shown directly to my room. I had an A/C room on the 2nd floor. The room was nice and comfortable. The bathroom was nice and clean. Breakfast cost was minimal with a few eggs, toast, and tea. Check out was simple as well. I would recommend Ocean View as it is a good value for the stay.

Room Tip: A/C Deluxe room is worth the extra expense to beat the heat and humidity to relax.

Hot shower, a clean and comfortable room and a friendly welcome. The owner was very helpful imparting local knowledge and helping arrange transport to Kandy. I may just swing by before leaving Sri Lanka

Clean, comfortable rooms with hot showers and extremely friendly service. Provided an extra mattress for our room free of charge. Good value for money in comparison to other guesthouses in the area. Allowed us to store baggage before our flight with complimentary use of a washroom and shower. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try and haggle down the price in low season

Quite noisy for sleeping once the traffic starts in the morning (and it starts early!). Breakfast was fairly average; didn't feel that we were made particularly welcome or given much information considering it was our first day in Sri Lanka.

Dear guest thank you for your feed back. I was really sad to hear about your experience. Our road is not a very busy road normally, it is not a main highway to any ware. but on the day you stayed it was the day that Sri Lankan cricket team won the T20 world cup against India and people celebrating it on the street throughout the night. Then about not providing information. For this you have to come to our travel desk. We never come and disturb you like on the street or on the beach asking or promoting tours or goods. We are sure about giving very correct information for our house guests or even if some one come from out side. Thank you.

We booked ahead to make sure as we were going to the airport from Negombo and wanted to make sure we had a taxi sorted as we flew at 4am and I didnt want to haggling at this time of the day! Rooms were clean, nice balcony/garden, staff were helpful, the taxi was perfect, prices very good.
