Fantastic hospitality and friendly staff
We booked this hotel as it was reasonably close to the airport and we were meeting our adult daughter who was arriving on an earlier flight and we wanted her to have a comfortable place to spend the afternoon. Despite the fact that our already late scheduled flight was delayed for four hours, and with our daughter telling him that it was absolutely unnecessary, the manager insisted on staying up until our arrival at 3.30am to provide us with a welcome drink. Genuine hospitality with a happy smile. We were really impressed (and quite embarrassed to be honest). In the morning, we were proudly served our cooked breakfast and the manager gave us helpful information about onward travel. Arranged a tuk tuk for our departure to the bus station. Our triple room was fairly basic, quiet, clean and with very comfortable beds and bedding. Highly recommended for an overnight stay with staff providing a very warm, welcoming introduction to Sri Lanka.

8/10 Very good

1 night stay
We had a shakey start as didn't get a message to say we would be met at airport and had to take a local taxi. But on arrival we were met with big smiles, clean room and comfortable bed. Food good, staff excellent and pool lovely.

4/10 Fair

Wasted potential
The Chinese receptionist never smiles and just sits around doing absolutely nothing.They gave us welcome drinks on arrival but did not bother offering anything to our driver who was sitting right next to us. There are many mosquitoes around. They should consider closing doors and adding mosquito nets. We were promised Sri Lankan breakfast but instead got bread, jam, and an omelette!?! The garden is not well maintained. To access the dirty beach that is behind the house one needs to go through a small wooden gate that is barely visible. The layout of the bathroom is strange with the shower right in the middle of it. The soap looked like it had been used by the previous guest. The reception area needs a makeover. The rooms are clean and the location is convenient (for people who need to go to the airport) but other than that the owners clearly did not make the best of it.

peaceful rest stop for travel to/from airport
stayed here for 2 nights after long journey in Sri Lanka before getting plane home. Lovely, family run hotel, all personnel very friendly and welcoming. Very clean and comfortable, I slept really well and woke to lovely breakfast with huge pot of tea.There is a very attractive garden to relax in. It's a long way out of town but that adds to the peaceful environment and, as a frequent bus service runs right outside the door, getting into town is easy.The garden backs onto the beach. Not really an attractive beach for swimming or sunbathing, its rocky and litter strewn( unfortunately, that's Negombo, the litter gets much worse closer to town) but I enjoyed a walk along it and listening to the waves and watching the sunset over the sea. Negombo town is interesting to pass a day or two before travelling onwards, much preferable to big, noisy Colombo while recovering from your journey.
