After a month travelling in Sri Lanka the room I had was lacking for the price.
AC dripped constantly outside.
LCD tv had no cable and therefore did not work. This was the only reason I wanted the AC room after 4 weeks without tv. Manager said it would be repaired. Not much good for my stay.
Light in the room was dim and not suitable for reading.
Windows faced into central courtyard and curtains were somewhat seep through.
No where to put stuff in the bathroom except around the sink.
Shower head has to be held by hand.
Receptionist is also cook and bellboy so perhaps it is understaffed.
To be fair I saw two rooms downstairs and the rooms upstairs might better in some respects.
If this room was cheap then it would not be worth noting some minor problems such as lighting.
In my opinion Negombo is an overpriced dump and best avoided even for transit. Colombo city or Mt Livinia is better and I would pay the extra $ or take the time on the bus to go to and fro from there to the airport.
