This was a great place to spend our first night in Sri Lanka (about half hour from airport and 1700rupees). As with many tourists, we picked a taxi up at airport desk but could have got one for 1000 if hailed outside which looked easy enough! The guesthouse was lovely, clean and comfy. We didn't see enough of Negombo to... More

I found and choose this guest house, based on the review rates from TripAdvisor. They are all very polite and helpful where they can, a real nice experience, like visiting family. Their breakfast was the best of all I had in over two weeks Sri Lanka but the sheets on my bed were not clean, there was no moskito net... More

Very good and very clean. This was our first night in Sri Lanka and it was perfect to relax after our flight (30 min from the airport). The house is peaceful with the refreshing pool and very calm, and so is the very nice and discrete staff

We stayed in Serendip Guesthouse for the last night of our wonderful 2 week Sri Lanka trip. The staff is very helpful and friendly, showed us where to find different things around Negombo and helped us with Airport transfer. The guesthouse is in a nice, residential neighbourhood very well hidden away from the Negombo all inclusive tourist crowd but at... More

We chose this property after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor and checking the rates online which are much cheaper than the hotels in Negombo. We were arriving late at night and asked the hotel to arrange a transfer for us. We were met on arrival despite a one hour flight delay and were greeting up arrival at the hotel... More

Serendib is a lovely place to stay. Staff are friendly and helpful and are always smiling. Rooms are clean and comfortable and all have AC, which I assure you need!! Breakfast is fit for a king and sets you up for the day. Hilary and Buddika ( and the daft dogs Cleo and Fergus ) are warm and welcoming to... More

Located in a hidden lane closed to beachside road. 40 mins drive from airport. Simple but comfortable. Breakfast is great enough for a refreshing morning. Accomodation is quite basic though, for its USD50 price, hospitable and helpful staff make up for it. Good place for first touch down. Start out your Sri Lanka journey from Serendib is recommended.

We stayed for 3 weeks from 31/8/2014 until 20/9/2014 and from start to finish everything was excellent, it just felt like home. We were warmly greeted by Hilary and Budika on arrival with a can each of our favourite Lion beer which was very welcome after a long days travelling. Our room was upstairs, very spacious and clean, a lovey... More

We started our trip in Serendib's house. Hillary and Milinda welcomed us with kind tips for Sri Lanka and helped us getting around in Negombo. We could choose our room and it was very nice:clean, bright and super comfortable. The breakfast is amazingly tasty and fills you up until the afternoon! In the evening we drank some local whiskey with... More

We started our Sri Lanka trip by staying the first two nights in the Serendib Guest house. A good choice! we arrived early in the morning and the people of the Guest House did everything to help us after a long flight. Our room was still occupied (because we were so early) but within one hour our room was free... More
