Hi there,

Yes Lewis Place is more or less central Negombo. Which means enough stuff at walking distance. Negombo town to Colombo is around 90 mins by train and bus, by car a bit less in real off-peak conditions.

All the best,

The hotel is approx. 37 km from Colombo City. The centre of Negombo is about 2 km from the hotel.

Negombo is better thought of in two halves. You have the shopping area/main town and then the "beach strip" to the north where all the hotels and restaurants are. Lewis Place and Porutota Road are the two roads where these hotels and restaurants tend to be, plus a handful of touristy souvenir type shops. You can get a tuk-tuk from the beach area to the main town. With hard haggling, you can do it for around LKR 150 but they are used to tourists paying a lot more than that for the ride, so be ready to haggle or pay considerably more than that....
