A small hotel in a quiet yet central location. The room was large enough, with a spacious bathroom. Everything was clean and well kept. There is a medium size swimming pool and a restaurant that also serves dinner. We only had breakfast - which was more than ample and tasty too - so cannot comment on the food. A good hotel for the first or last night in Negombo.

We used this hotel as a break in our journey on our route South. This hotel is located in a good location - within walking distance of the main street and beach. The rooms were clean and well maintained however the bathrooms were in need of updating. The owner of the hotel was very attentive to our needs and looked after us well. A couple of tips - if travelling with young children who need high chairs, worth bringing your own portable seat because the hotel does not provide any, also the food was slightly overpriced, however the breakfast portions were generous!

Higly recommend Blue elephant boutique hotel for any foreign or local traveller. The interior wall arts and portraits are magnificent. It's a different and rare kind of experience in a town area like Negombo. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and attractive. The pool area has a nice view with wall arts. The staff is friendly and very helpfull.

Hotel was located in a quiet and dark street. Rooms are spacious but old. Unable to open the cupboards, no hair dryer nor toothbrush. Breakfast was only toast, sausages, eggs with juices or hot beverages. Staff are trying their best to provide the best service.
