The staff here are awesome! Only 15-20 minutes away from the airport this place felt like a home. Right on the beach you can be served almost any meal you like by royston and his staff. We liked it so much we booked again for the end of our trip. The only negative was that the shower kinda sucked.

The hotel host Tissa made our stay remarkable. He gives a spark to the hotel and makes you laugh at all times. We really enjoyed our 2 days stay after backpacking the entire country as a come down before departing from negombo airport again. The hotel is very cute, homey and no mass toruism at all. The beach is located... More

I really liked my two day stay here. The hotel staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. I had been in a very smart hotel about 500 m south for a conference and there was the option of staying on. Glad I moved - very relaxed and authentic. Room delightful. Ensuite and a view of... More

The Room, For the price paid the rooms were pretty good and spacious. The bathroom was clean and the hot water worked (Yeiii). The air conditioning takes a quite a while to cool the room but that would have been because of the ancient AC in our room. The staff were very friendly and helpful besides the lady in charge...

The pros: 1. Clean toilets. They didn't smell funny. The hot water was actually hot. although the shower cubicle leaked a little bit. 2. Breakfast was excellent! Local coffee (with plenty of milk, for once) juice, eggs, toast with butter and jam. 3. It's right on the beach. 4. Quirky interior design. Cons: 1. The AC didn't work well. 2.... More

The warmest welcome we received all holiday! This was our last night before travelling back to the UK, and I had very badly sunburnt lips so was not in the best of mood!! We were pleasantly surprised at the incredibly friendly owner, and the peace & tranquility of the hotel. The room was good, and we had a view of... More

We stayed here right after arriving in Sri Lanka. It's a good place to get rid of the jet lag and get ready for your holiday. Rooms are spacious and very clean, as is the bathroom, which also has an excellent shower. some rooms have great beach views. We stayed here with our one-and-a-half year old, who was well looked-after... More

Returned again and greeted now as family, As before the professionalism and hospitality of Royston and his staff surpassed all our expectations. The Beach lodge is about 20 minutes from Colombo Airport at the quiet end of Negombo beach. This time we stayed in the new room (number 9) which is directly on the beach with an outside sit out...

The staff are super friendly. We just had a traditional lunch in the back yard facing the beach. Good experience. The airport is not too far from this place. Though we didn't reserve a room, but looks like a good place for night-life.
