I stayed here for my stopover accommodation provided by Srilankan Airlines after a 12 hour flight. Needless to say I was quite disappointed. You have a bed, a bathroom which would just meet your needs. No TV in room ( may be because I was a stopover passenger ) , bathroom looks antique and shower just managed to work. The... More

Stayed here on the first night of a Intrepid tour. The accommodation was average but clean. Had all the amenities that you needed and nothing more. Close to the beach to watch a perfect Sri Lankan sunset. I personally didn't find Negombo worthwhile for a visit but this was where the tour started.

The Golden Star was our first stop in Sri Lanka. We arrived in the dead of night after 9 hours of flight and after finding someone we were directed to our basic but comfortable room.The sound of crashing waves and the sea breeze blowing through the palm leaves very cool. All that was needed was a good shower to wash... More

I visited your hotel last month.Very good food. Also you get a nice feeling when you are sitting in the bar. A very nice place and the pool is good too. But the only negative is the Calypso band.They come near the tables and just scream. Only sings sinhala songs even if they sing English songs its pretty hard to... More

Could use some updating in the pool area. Becareful what room you get. On the first part of our trip we had an older room with a poorly working air con that leaked water in our room and a rather tired looking bathroom. On the end part of our trip we had a deluxe room and it was much better.... More

This hotel is quite decent - linens were clean, rooms were renovated; has a beach at the back. Breakfast has variety, even for vegetarians. Generally a decent hotel. Rooms are quite spacious and beds are clean.

Stayed here the first two nights via an Intrepid tour. It is an old hotel, not well maintained, but it works. The paint is falling off the walls, and it probably hasn't been updated in a few years, at least this is what struck me upon arrival. The rooms are basic with fan/AC and small fridge/kettle. Beds are okay, with... More
