I was due to stay at this hotel with my father but he sadly passed away before our trip. In my grief, I did not cancel the booking and although Agoda tried to get my money back, the hotel refused and would not answer any communications from me. They charged me the full amount. I found them cold, uncaring and unsympathetic.

Location: Good location with a 1-2 minute walk to the main road, beach and stores. Cleanliness: Good cleaning protocols for covid along with clean rooms. Wifi: Wifi was terrible on the second floor but better on the third floor after being changed to a room up there. Food/Hospitality: The breakfast was good (Standard Sri Lankan and American) Facilities/Room Amenities: Air conditioning, fridge, private bathroom, pool, fenced location with security guard on duty. Value for Price: Value for the price is not bad but you can probably find better. The host did as much as he could in his power to make sure that we were happy as we were working abroad and definitely needed better wifi. Shehan went above and beyond but there was only so much he could do. I give him 5* for doing what he could for us. Both Shehan and Jenat were very attentive to our needs and are both an asset to this company. Thank you both for your hard work and making us feel welcomed during our stay.

Our family booked 2 Deluxe rooms at St. Lachlan hotels and suites a small luxary boutique hotel newly managed by Barrakuda situated in the art of Negambo town from 1st to 2 nd August after the covid 2019. This unique hotel caters locals and foreigners with an exceptional and excellent customer service since only locals were patronizing these days due to covid 2019 and there were lots of promotional rates offered to locals and foreign residents.  We have been warmly welcomed in Sri Lanka style "Ayibowan"  by Mickrantha Mirando an Executive in charge and his team who gave us a brief note about the hotel and it's facilities also attended to our needs from the time we checked in to the hotel. He made sure our stay was comfortable with excellent customer service. Furthermore Interior design of the Rooms are large and spacious including bathroom which has all the amenities equal to 5 star standard but hotel needs some slight maintenance since I was told that new management took over this hotel only recently. Also special thanks goes to Raj who over looks F & B department and his team members for decilious, tasty Srilankan and Chinese food served for us.  He attended to our food preferences by checking what we need and ensured it was well delivered. Finally thanks to Barrakuda Management and their team members for great hospitality offered to us and we will visit once again.

Booked 2 suites at this property for my family. The state of the rooms were very poor. Very old and shoddy. Seems like this place has not been refurbished for a long time. There were cockroaches in the both suites and rooms were very dimly lit. Wifi password provided was not usable. Would definitely not recommend this place to anyone. Certainly not a 3 or 4 star place as depicted on booking.com. Moreover, we were also charged for our driver's accommodation. And the fan in the room was not in working condition.

I understand this hotel is re-establishing itself after a recent change in ownership. There is much to do. The rooms are simple, air conditioning works, plumbing is okay and the shower has a good hot water supply. The pool area is very nice and the breakfast is fine. But ... service is lacking, cleanliness could be much improved and there are very limited facilities. It’s secure and handy to Negombo beach - so from that point of view it’s quite okay.

I went to St. Lachlan hotel negombo, some days ago with my girlfriend. No one in reception to welcome to us, one of the security reserved from the main door and asked us to sit, after 5 minutes on of lady came us and welcome to us, No welcome drink but we too tired at that time, then she took us to the room, room was very dark, they promote their hotel pool view, beach view, etc.................. But we saw only huge bush around the hotel, rooms are very dirty, bathrooms are rubbish, staff ok, hotel garden very dirty, no one in the restaurant, this hotel like a alone house, this is not my first visit to sri lanka, I have been so many times there, but they destroyed my all tour in first day. I want to tell everybody who willing to go this hotel, please don’t go there, I wrote this with my experience.

I have never left a negative review, instead choosing not to say anything at all however on this occasion I feel it is warranted. This hotel is marketed as a 4 star hotel. It definitely is not. We checked in at about 3.30 PM with the intention of staying until our midnight flight. Check in was fine and the staff were really helpful and lovely. When we were shown to our room the smell was the first thing that hit me. The non smoking rooms have a musty smell. The carpets, lamp shades, doors and walls are all visibly filthy. The towels were a dirty off white and in desperate need of replacing. Only one light globe in the room worked. We showered and checked out a total of three hours later and headed to the airport instead. We had planned to stay longer but the mosquitos in the room were unbearable. On checking out we were held up by a staff member who requested we pay for the room, despite paying for the room on check in. Not a massive issue that was sorted out within 10 minutes but annoying at the end of our experience. The photos used to market this place are not a true indicator of what the place is like. Definitely not 4 star and definitely in need of a really good clean and some maintenance!

We stayed one night prior to flying out to Thailand. Our room had a filthy carpet and initially the air conditioning did not work. The knob to turn the ceiling fan on was missing and the door to the ‘secure lockup’ did not lock. The door knob on the inside of the bathroom door was missing. Good thing we only stayed one night. Not recommended!!
