If you are travelling to Sri Lanka, this could easily be your first stay, after a long and tiresome journey from your homecountry. (Very close to the airport.) We were so lucky, to have picked this place for a two days stay after arriving Colombo. If the rest of our journey in Sri Lanka would be pleasant as this stay... More

That was our first night in Sri Lanka. Sam picked us up at the airport and we had a really nice and big room with a little balcony. Sam and Judith are very nice. Now they started working on a swimming pool. So it will be worth going there next year :-) It's very quiet and in 5minutes you can... More

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

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
