Stayed 2 nights at $26 a night on single basis in Room 8. Spacious room with comfortable bed. Shower had good pressure and hot water. Lower ground room towards the back. Quiet and dark when needed made for a good sleep. Wifi worked well. A little tired and a few rough edges but great value at this price. Breakfast included... More

Considering the cost of accommodation in Negombo, Blue Horizon is still very good value for money. However over the years, its quality has deteriorated due to lack of maintenance. Rooms 1,2 & 3 facing the road experience road noise. If the noise is not a problem, these rooms have the best balconies. Room 4 can be considered as the best... More

stayed at Blue Horizon November 2014 and returned to stay February 2015. The reason we returned is that the staff are very friendly and helpful. The location is really good. Close to beach but not in one of the bigger posh hotels that are on the beach. The price is great and its close to the airport. The rooms are... More

The hotel is located on Cemetery Road - one of the two main roads coming from the town to the beach area - and a 10 to 15 minute walk to the strip of restaurants along Potutota Road and the main beach area. A tul tuk is essential to visit the town and fish market, and these are readily available.... More

Our family of six adults stayed here for 2 nights prior to flight home. The staff organised bike hire for us and we visited the fish market which was very interesting. The guest house is situated on a quiet road. There is plenty of space. The breakfast was surprisingly good - fresh fruit and omlette and toast. Tea available all... More

I stayed here for one night on the first day we landed in SL. The hotel is below average in all aspects. The only reason for our stay was to have a rest after our flight and to have a rest before we drive to Dambulla the next day. We arrived at 2:30ish with a driver. And a few days... More

Like most travelers, we needed to stop in Negumbo on our way to Colombo airport. We had an early morning flight and needed a roof over our heads for about 10 hours. For $27.72 we got just that! As most of the reviewers will tell you, this place is pretty sparse. The adage, "You get what you pay for" could... More

Hotel is on the road next to the busy beach road, yet 200m from the beach, and near to eateries. Breakfast was standard with fruit platter and eggs to order and toast, jam and butter. Understand there is a resident cook during the high season. Tea/coffee is 24hrs in the lobby. There are 2 new rooms on the ground floor,... More
