We stayed here for the first night on Sri Lanka. Nice hotel for good money, we had room with A/C and sea wiew. Hotel is on the calm place and on the beach. Room was clean, sheets and towels as well...but bathroom door was very dirty and full of fingerprints. We realy enjoyed breakfast close to the beach.

The hotel was a convenient one night's stay at Negombo before we left Sri Lanka the next day. It's situated on a dirt road off the main Lewis Place road. It's quiet and looked like it was slowly being renovated or just renovated. The air conditioning unit was cold so passed with flying colors. The sheets were clean. The room... More

We only stayed here for one night. Our room was situated on the 2nd floor and a bit rustic. Our A/C was not working properly and we got help from the staff to fix it. It wasn't as cool as we expected but it was working better so we decided to just let it go. Our bathroom was a bit... More

Another night in Negombo in this place. Situated directly at the beach with nice garden. Rooms were clean and comfortable but bad smell out of the bathroom. A/C was not working powerful enough. Service was very poor.

Our room overlooked the beach and had a balcony and also steps up to our own rooftop verandah, room was airy and clean, A/C and fan, cable tv, Staff were friendly and cheerful, only ate at this hotel the one evening service was ok...

While visiting Sri Lanka for the second time, this place was the first and only one choice to stay again for very kind atmosphere, friendly staff and nice seaview. Very pleasantly surpriced because it has changed significantly! Hotel has been renovated, newly furnished clean rooms, hot water available anytime. The hotel manager is very caring helpful person and nothing is... More

We stayed at the Star Beach after having to change our plans at short notice and have 2 days in the Colombo/Negombo area. We looked at various options and this ticked the boxes for both location and price. (If you want to pay package holiday prices go on a package tour). Check in was simple and we were allocated rooms... More

It's in a perfect location, right on the beach, but like most places on this strip of Negombo, the rooms have been severely neglected. On the good side, Star Beach does throw together an excellent curry. And Negondo, which is close the airport, is an amazingly quiet beach. I think most folks just come here for the night before flying... More

This guesthouse has a nice location with direct access to Negombo beach. However, the rooms and lobby with the restaurant are quiet a bit shabby. Things could be much more maintained. The staff is friendly, but the overall service is very slow. E.g. we waited for more than half an hour to get breakfast.
