Dephani Beach Hotel
Ranked #55 of 237 Speciality Lodging in Negombo
Reviewed 9 February 2014 via mobile

Transfer from airport to the hotel worked very well; the rooms were old but quite clean, athough they do not clean every day. all in all the hotel has had its best days, but the personnel is very friendly and the garden to the beach brings lots of charme to it. Mr. Fernando helped a lot with useful tips at our first day here, and we also booked a 6-days-trip to the cultural triangle in the centre of the island with a very good price-quality-ratio!

It's good to go to this hostel at first, is very cosy. people are very willing to help with planning your trip and everyone is very welcoming. U can feel like at home there. Rooms are ok, clean, not very special. Food is average. Close to the beach. They have good wifi connection, but only from 10am to 10pm (later they switch it off).

We stayed here our last night in Sri Lanka. The room was a little outdated but the beds were comfortable and the bathroom was about the same as the other 6 hotels we stayed in. We only needed a place to sleep a few hours before we went to the airport. We checked in on New Year's Eve and went exploring from there. The staff was VERY helpful when we needed a couple things before we left. They were polite and very welcoming. The room we had was a corner room on the second floor with a ocean view. Great view!! We didn't have any food while we were here we dined down the road. I can honestly say though from the short time we spent there it was nice, quiet and great beach front. We actually wished we had another day to take in everything that was around here. For being New Year's Eve it was quiet after midnight hit. Of course fireworks were going off every where until midnight. But before 8pm it was still very quiet and calm all around us.

I would recommend staying here for anyone looking for a nice beach front place to stay and a good price.

One of the best places to stay because everyone & everything is so welcoming at this place.You are always greeted with warm wiggles & smiles.What more do you expect?Food is also good here.The beach is all the more inviting just right at the back yard.Rooms are clean#big#relaxing! Great Value I'd say!

Mr Linton takes good care of all his guests with the best of tour guides/advice about going around the place/which restaurants to eat in..etc etc

Would love to visit soon again !

Despite a good sight view on the beach, we spent a terrible night in this place. The staff does not seem to care about the guests. Food is correct but for the rooms it's different...We had a ground floor room which was indeed dark and gloomy and didn't look very clean. In fact it was infested by mosquitos and we were attacked by cockroaches overnight. We do not recommend to sleep in this place or for sure in the ground floor rooms...

We stayed here for 1 night. It was 2500 rps for 2 of us in a ground floor room. Spacious but dark and gloomy. No air cond but comfy. The bathroom and light fittings are falling apart! Surprisingly with water heater but not in the morning. The wifi is only on 8.30am to 9.30pm.

Room Tip: Not sure if all rooms are as bad as ours were. Probably try to look at a few rooms before deciding.

Stayed here for one night, as our preferred option was full. We needn't have been worried; the room we were given was the most spacious we had in Sri Lanka. OK, tired, standard fittings; mosquito net; but with lots of nooks and crannies to relax in around the courtyard, and a shady area in the back garden, leading to the beach. Owner was perhaps laconic, but service was attentive; all for excellent value.
