We stayed at Marine Tourist Guest House in Negombo the first and the last two nights of our stay in Sri Lanka. We got the room No.8. It was very clean, got a big and comfy bed with mosquito net, a balcony, a fridge to cool beer :-) and A/C but no hot water in the bathroom. And free of... More

Staff are friendly and helpful, the room we stayed in was spacious but quite basic. The bathroom, again was big but basic. Both bedroom and bathroom were clean. The breakfast was awful, we were served (without being asked) slightly toasted bread (as is the way in Sri Lanka), undercooked fried eggs, sausages and fresh pineapple. We both would have preferred... More

One of the tidiest and well-maintained places I faced during my 4 months of traveling in South-Eastern Asia so far. Toilets and showers (and these are shared toilets and showers) are of an extreme cleanliness. My special prize goes to the owner and personnel - it almost feels like you are a part of a family. The area adjusting to... More

With a huge king size 4 poster bed, AC and fan, a balcony, across the road from the beach, a nice common area and friendly staff, this is a good budget option for backpackers. Don't expect the Ritz (remember its only £18 per night) but the bed alone puts this place in the would recommend category.

We booked this place for arriving in Sri Lanka. The room booked was arranged on the spot by the owner since we needed extra bed and space as a family. The staff was very helpful. The beach is about 100m across the street. The room had a balcony with sea view.

We booked a 4 bed dorm for our family for $40. Room was fine, 2 bunk beds, good mattresses, power socket and reading light with each bed. Hot shower, bathrooms clean, staff were friendly and helpful. Overall, basic but good with easy walk to beach and restaurants. Somewhere to stay for a day or two before catching the plane at... More

This is a lovely little guest house tucked off the main road. It's opposite the beach which is quiet and clean to swim in. The sea Joy restaurant next door does breakfast: The room we stayed in was on the first floor and had very high ceilings, a large bed, balcony and bathroom. We didn't see much of the staff... More

The rooms and bathroom are very spacious. There was a fridge in the bedroom, but the furniture (tables and chairs) were of plastic. The rooms on the upper floor are very quiet, and have nice balconies. The guesthouse is next to the beach. However, there is no possibility to take any meal in the guesthouse as it is still under...
