The small resort was super clean and really tidy. The luxury cabana is a high standard room for the Sri Lanka standards. The service is awesome and the owners and workers make you feel in family since the beginning. They can organize for you several services apart from the hotel like tuc-tuc, driver, etc.

Spent 5 lovely days in this clean, comfortable and layed back paradise only 45min Tuktuk ride from the international airport. We opted for Harry's place instead of the bigger, touristy resorts and were not disappointed! We had the luxury cabana with the wonderful bathroom. It felt like we had a whole house to ourselves - ac, big, airy and great... More

This must be the perfect place to stay on the west coast of Sri Lanka. Although most of the visitors go south to the popular package hotels and crowded towns, look north of the airport. Go past the over-rated Negombo and treat yourself to the quiet, tranquil haven that is Briddens Place. It is truly family run. Our cabana equals... More

Having stayed at Bridden’s Place several times I can heartily recommend it. The owners Harry and his wife Chamali are superb hosts. They will do their best to make your stay very enjoyable. Chamali and her helpers cook all meals to order and are always of a very high quality. She cooks western food and Sri Lankan. The fresh fish... More

We visited Briddens family for the second time and were satisfied again. Very nice family run place when you plan to rest and experience local cousine, you still get European standard as the owner is Dutch. Ideal place - not far from the airport as also a good starting point to take a tour through the island (owner planned and... More

Spent there almost 2 weeks in Feb 2013 thanks to my sister's recommendation who was there last year with her family (2 small kids). Very clean, nice spot, rather private calm place without any big tourist hassle. Great swimming pool; you can easily approach the ocean which is next to the place just crossing the way behind Bridden's. Absolutely excellent... More
