Judith and husband both had very good English (and German), and were very friendly throughout our stay, even taking us to the airport at short notice. Delicious homemade food. 5 minutes walk from the beach and off the main strip so quiet at night. Id recommend a stay here, Negombo is a bit touristy though, we only stayed on arrival... More

We attended a wedding in Sri Lanka and had to stretch our stay in Negombo a bit longer then I would have liked as Negombo is a bit touristy for me. We stayed 6 nights and we found the room clean and well kept with warm showers and TV a bonus for my daughter. Saman and Judith were very helpful... More

We started and ended our tour of Sri Lanka here. Saman and Judith were very welcoming and gave us a delicious smoothie when we arrived, which was a lovely welcome. We stayed half board and the Sri Lankan curry was delicious and the fruit salad for breakfast, toast and eggs were a great start for the day. The rooms were... More

This lovely hotel has spacious, clean rooms with big beds and good showers. It is very close to the beach and relatively close to the airport, which makes it a good start or comfortable end of your trip in Sri Lanka. Breakfast is great (good coffee) and the food is also very nice. Judith and Saman are very friendly people... More

The hotel has a lot of potential, it is not completely finished, but the pool and the buffets are more than enough reasons to pay this hotel a visit. The staff is mostly very professional, with some beginners flaws. The luggage-guy, was amazing he even changed the electrical socket in my room to make it fit to my laptop! I... More

This is the best welcome off all my traveladventures so far. We arrived from the crowdy Delhi at this nice and peacefull guesthouse. The owner (Saman and Judith) are great! We first had a small room wich was a bit smelly. After one notice they gave us a wonderfull clean and comfy room. Absolute favorite!

After a long flight, great to be collected by the owner from the airport. We had a family apartment for the four of us, ideal. Clean, spacious, comfortable beds. Lovely breakfast in the garden. Well recommended as a starting point to a Sri Lankan tour.

This was the most comfortable place that I stayed in Sri Lanka during my week visit. There is hot water in the shower, which is a rare find. The bed is comfortable. The breakfast is good. It is only a dollar tuk tuk ride to the restaurants. This was a nice place to start and end our tour.
