“Simply the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012 via mobile

Outstanding resort, with lovely spacious gardens, and excellent swimming pool. All rooms are well furnished, and cleaner than most top hotels. Dick and the staff there are 12 for 7 rooms make your stay unforgettable. The only exclusive gay place, others claim to be but are not. Don't miss this gem if you visit this island

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Stayed a few times now and have never been disappointed.
A quietly located GAY bed & breakfast establishment.
Location: 15-20mins from the airport, they'll pick you up/drop you off, down a lane off the main Poruthota Road in Negombo. The lane is unmade and some problems can occur when it rains.
Welcome: Excellent by the owner and all staff, including drink.
Rooms: Huge, with floor to ceiling glass wall and aircon.
Food: Breakfast is excellent - particularly the fruit plate. It is possible to order an evewning meal but it does mean eating around 6.00pm.
Facilities: Inhouse - Swimming pool is excellent, wifi and laundry available for a small fee - though check payment detail as some things can be inclusive. Trips can be arranged.
Electricity: Sri Lanka can have power outages, there is an onsite generator but don't expect the internet!!!
Outside - the beach is a short walk away, a varied choice of restaurants and bars
Night life: This is not Thailand or Gran Canaria!
I have always found the staff, friendly and accommodating. The owner, Dick, lives on site and keeps a strict control on his staff and on who can/cannot come in. His policies have maintained a very high standard.
Overall, if you're looking for a quiet holiday location then this is probably ideal!

Room Tip: All are of a similar quality
