“Perfect beach hotel for a short stay.”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Rooms were adequate size with balcony and air conditioning. The pool made our stay even better. Internet was just at the reception, but at least it was working. Nice friendly staff and a good buffet. Ocean wiew was beautiful from the pool.

This guest house is a few doors up from the Ice Bear hotel, it has a sign and is down an alleyway that leads to the beach. I have added this hotel myself because it was really peaceful and very clean. the rooms do vary, the ones with the communal terrace are nicer but more expensive. there are 7 rooms in total. the wifi worked with good signal. the staff were very friendly and were forever sweeping up and keeping it tidy. they are fan rooms with cold water which doesnt suit all but this is what i prefer. i thought it was good value. they do offer tea and breakfast too, i just had the tea.

Our first impressions of the room were not good,it was a street facing room and not a lot in the room worked including no hot water.We requested a change and got a sea facing room where everything worked.Lobby and floor staff were very friendly and helpful.Both rooms had pretty ordinary furniture but it is adequate although a proper room safe would be better than the current set up.The rooms are a good size and we had a very big balcony with sea and pool views.The swimming pool and beachfront area is a nice spot to relax on the sun lounges with excellent waiter service.Breakfast was ok considering the room cost and there are restaurants nearby in the main street.

Room Tip: Grab a sea facing room.

It was my cousin brother's wedding reception which was held there. Beautiful hall facing the sea. I dont know about their room facilities but they gave a good service, though we had a problem in parking vehicles. But the wedding buffet was excellent. We enjoyed their food so well and it was indeed tasty.

We were a batch of 34 travellers who stayed at this place on 22nd January 2014. The hotel could not accommodate us in the main building and about dozen of us were asked to stay in a neighbouring nameless hotel building. For boarding, we had to come to Rani Beach Hotel. The rooms we stayed in were new, smelled of paint and varnish and were cramped. There was nothing like an ambience or individuality in these rooms. Front of the hotel is unimpressive. But, access to beach is direct. The hotel has a swimming pool and good facility for westerners who want to have sunbath. Dining area is not completely walled and provides view of pool and beach from certain locations. Staple food such as rice and rotis are undercooked. Breakfast was a modest fare and nothing to write home about.

Room Tip: Seek room accommodation only in the main building, preferable in the higher floors.

This hotel was booked by our guide for only 1 night. We were flying back to home next morning.

According to European standards it is a quite expensive hotel, but during high season in Negombo price was not bad.

We paid 100$ per night.


Room was clear, but also very loud. You will hear a lot of noise coming through doors.

Beach in the front of the hotel is very dirty.


For a longer stay i'll get depressed, for 1 night it was ok.


Breakfast is terrible. We did not try a lunch menu.

Arrived very late in the evening following a long train journey in 3rd class! Went looking for a hotel with our taxi driver and settled quickly for the Rani as it had a room, pool and was not too expensive. Room was fine, clean and with a balcony facing the ocean.
Breakfast was average. Pool nice and clean with sunbeds, towels etc. We stayed for two days. I would not have liked any more time there. There was so much noise everywhere! The first day there was extremely loud music for the full day just up the beach, and the second day two local cricket teams had a match just outside on the beach with loud commentary and background music which seems to be the local way. Enjoyed the cricket match. However not so much the music, as behind us in the hotel a wedding was taking place in the outdoor dining area competing for even higher decibels!
Negombo is very convenient for the airport and that is the only reason to stay there in my opinion. The rest of Sri Lanka is wonderful especially if you travel around independently.
