I stayed at Randiya Guest with my husband and teenage son. Regrettably there is nothing positive I have to say about this place. There are several other places nearby where one can stay. The rooms were dusty and had cobwebs all over. We made the mistake of opening the over head mosquito net... this was probably never washed so we... More

This was arranged by Lankan Heritage & Tours (Pvt.) Ltd. on our first day landing at Colombo Airport (27Dec2015), my wedding anniversary as well. Did not have a good experience at the hotel. The mosquito net was stinking. There was cobwebs in the bathroom. Breakfast next day was also bad. Just two slices of bread, butter, Jam, and tea whereas... More

We arrived to this guest house right from Colombo airport by taxi driver. We stayed for 1 night for 2000lkr. It is actually not in Negombo but more in the north from Negombo. We had double room, with fan and it was quite clean. WiFi signal in the room was very poor but altogether the room was ok. Food in... More

I have visited Sri lanka 10 years ago and again loved all of the different attractions the island has to offer, which is not what I am writting about. I came in 2005 and after moving around for a few days came to stay at Randiya Guess House. At the time most of the clients were from Germany, and Mr... More

We had a room here for two nights, 2500rps per day (double room, no AC). The room was very humid and the bathroom dirty. The person running the guesthouse is very insisting and unpleasant and tried to convince us to catch a taxi he would arrange. We would not come again.

We have been traveling on a budget for a while, and are accustomed to basic guesthouses. The guesthouse itself is a bit overpriced for what you get in the area at 2000lkr, but that part was ok. The part that was pretty bad was that they kept insisting that we book a driver through them for a tour. They kept... More

We stayed 2 nights in this place because we didn't have much other options. We arrived at 3 in the nights and this place has a 24hr service. The room was 3500rupee, way too much, other places which are better are available for half that amount. The owner is annoying. He keeps hanging aroumd you, trying to push you to... More

We arrived in Sri Lanka quite late at night and were taken to this guest house by the taxi company at the airport (obviously earning commissions) The man who worked there greeted us warmly and was very accommodating.
