We arrived at 1am and the owner came to pick us up from the airport as the driver we booked cancelled. We thought that was great service. The rooms are very clean and spacious but they are very basic. Great for a stopover night, probably wouldn't stay longer but for the price it was perfect for us and close to... More

The kitchen I found smelly and less ok, but we only used it for coffee in the morning. I can recommend the place. And we had the most loveable... More

He woke up at 3AM to direct our taxi driver from the airport who did not know how to find the place. He also allowed us to check... More

Easy to get the three wheel to go wherever you want to go. Negombo city is not far. Once you get to know the place you can walk to the city.... More

Nice place to stay. We only stayed one night for a transfer elsewhere but good place to stay. Cheap and cheerful. Owner picked us up from airport and also arranged reasonably priced transport to east sri lanka. Overall very friendly and accommodating, would stay again and recommend to others.

We stayed one night and fled. It is a cheap option and in all fairness the chalet is very nice with two separate rooms (one sitting area one bedroom) with satellite TV (that we did not manage to work out), DVD player, tea making facilities and couches. BUT The smell was an overpowering mixture of pipi and dampness (the smell... More
