Marine Tourist Guest House was the perfect beginning to our journey in Sri Lanka. The staff are very friendly and helpful - they helped us with the bus to Colombo, and also we arranged a 4 days trip with a private driver from the guesthouse. The rooms are clean and we enjoyed our little balcony a lot during our 3... More

Good dorm and reasonably priced. Friendly helpful staff. Clean and has all you could want from a guesthouse. Close to beach and restaurants and easy walk into the city. Would recommend for the budget traveller.

clean and quiet rooms, kind host and hostess, easy of approach, very very nice talk with the young girl. Not as expensive as those hotels along side of the beach. but to be honest there is no big difference between them, a little bit of walk is necessary,hahaha. Including all kinds of services even the race boiled water in a... More

I stayed here for 2 nights with my mother and elderly grandmother before flying back to the uk after a long trip to Sri Lanka! The lady running the guest house was so lovely, she went out of her way to help us, even printing our travel documents for us! It was so nice to always be welcomed with her... More

Great place to start or finish your stay in Sri Lanka. Proximity to airport makes it a better place to leave from than Colombo. Both private rooms and dorms are well kept and clean. Private rooms spacious with big beds and mosquito nets. Dorms comfy and with A/C. Super friendly and helpful staff. Raji-angi and Nishan will make you want... More

Definitely a place to stay in Negombo. The stuff is really friendly, A/C equipped room with a balcony, and a really comfortable bed that we really need on a last day of our trip in SriLanka. Stuff there is extra to be mentioned. They offered us a place to store our luggage for the whole day and we were also... More

Marine tourist guesthouse is run by some of the friendliest people I've met. The room was spotless and had AC which was a bonus. Breakfast was a real big feed which consisted of fruit, eggs any way you want, yoghurt and more toast than is possible to eat. All in all excellent value.

I stayed here for my last night whilst waiting for my flight the following evening. The staff were very friendly and the facilities were great, as there was hot water and the beds were comfy. They also put my bags away and allowed me to use their facilities after I had checked out.
