I recently had the pleasure of staying at Gomez Place and it is a fantastic alternative to larger and more impersonal hotels. The hotel grounds are a small Oasis - lush gardens, small pool lots of really nice places just to lounge around and read a book. As others have said, each room has its own table and chairs in...

Very gay... some super rooms and lovely staff... breakfast is good and with a smile... nice to dip in the pool during the heat of the day. Negombo is a great place to start and end a Sri Lankan trip as close to airport and some nice restaurants nearby (king Coconut!)... We contacted Steven Silva from Kulansa travel (from Utopia)...

Lovely, welcoming and homely. A little treasure trove in Negombo. Compliments to Gomez. Exquisite staff....and most of the guests very friendly too, like one big family! Would certainly return most gladly.

This lovely Hotel is so spacious without being too big and is Gay Male only. The only non gays are the boys who clean the rooms and serve the breakfast. However they love to flirt with the guests, but not harassingly so. The whole place is totally clean and a pleasure to stay at. Breakfast is wherever you want it... More

Stayed here for just over a week in January (had not joined trip advisor then) - an excellent place to stay. Mr Gomez and his staff are super-friendly and helpful and excellent ambassadors for Sri Lanka. Excellent large and clean rooms with free wi-fi and serviced daily - also rooms have a safe. Daily breakfast is a treat. Airport pick-up... More

I had to move from the original hotel I had booked in Negombo for my holiday in December '13 -January '14 for personal reasons. When I asked Mr Gomez if he could accommodate me at Gomez Place at such short notice, he said yes and both he and his staff were incredibly kind, professional and helpful. I had a wonderful... More

We stayed at Gomez Place the first and the last night of our round trip through Sri Lanka. Both rooms were big, clean, with fridge and a big bathroom. Breakfast is good and staff are nice and helpful. They also organized a reliable driver from and to the airport for a reasonable price.

We came to Negombo after travelling around Sri Lanka for 10 days and staying at some really good places including The Planters in Kandy and Sobaco Nature Resort in Bentota - all places with 'character', value, friendly & efficient service & clean rooms. I want to emphasize that Gomez Place in Negombo has all these qualities and more! It is... More

Big spacious rooms with modern facilities, comfortable beds and newly upholstered. Staff are friendly, helpful and speak very good English. Location is great for beach and restaurants. Breakfast is very good. Plenty to eat with eggs, toast and coffee/tea etc. Very gay friendly! Highly recommend this hotel.
