We stayed 4 nights here in July. We stayed on the top floor. The room was spacious with air con and mosquito net.It has a view over the sea. The staff were friendly and helpful and organised a driver to Kandy for us. The guest house is good value for money.

Marine Guesthouse is an average hotel about 20' walk from the main part of Lewis Place (ie. where all the restaurants & bars are). The room was basic, the breakfast barely edible. The reception area is colourful & looks nice. Ok for the cheap price, I guess, but I wouldn't go back.

We have been here the first night and the last two nights of our trip. The rooms are big and clean, the location is good, staff is friendly and breakfast good aswell. Good price/quality balance. Only negatieve point is that it could be a little noisy at night when your are a light sleeper.

This is a quaint little guesthouse in the heart of The Negombo Tourist Beach area. It serves the purpose of primarily being the first stop of your Sri Lankan itinerary or the last place one ends up before catching a flight home. For this purpose, the guest house does it's job! The staff is more than willing to accommodate their... More

The guesthouse was easy enough to find on Lewis Place. I took the #905 bus from Negombo bus station (10 minutes). I was warmly greeted by the people who run the place. I stayed in a 4-bed mixed dorm room with air condition (a rare luxury on a budget!). I was given a huge lockable cabinet and a key card... More

Had a great stay here just before flying out of Sri Lanka. Stayed in the mixed dorm. It was very clean,tidy with your own locker,power point and personal light above each bed. The sprung mattresses were very comfortable and gave a good nights rest.Each dorm also has air-conditioning,which was very welcome as I'd not been able to afford a room... More

The rooms here were large and clean but I have to agree with some other reviewers that the place is a bit over-priced for what you get. Other than that I have no complaints though, the staff was nice and friendly (even though I arrived super late and woke everyone up), and the location is good with several restaurants nearby.

I stayed here for 2 nights at the start of my holiday and 1 at the end. I opted for the dorm room (4 beds). I slept well and the room and toilets were clean. The location is great for both Negombo and the airport although Negombo beach is a bit dirty and the area itself isn't all that with... More
