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.

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.

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.

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.

Four of us joined others for the reopening Happy Hour at St Lachlan, which featured music and singing from Kandie and Anna - both Negombo music celebrities. During the Happy Hour, wine and beer was heavily discounted and, toward the end, a variety of cocktails were free. It was an interesting evening.

I recommend this place if you're looking for a place Like this.

I would like to thank all the team of St Lachlan Hotel for their kindness and their hospitality. Clean rooms and pool. Their restaurant offers some nice local and tasty food. Beach is 5 minutes away and the staff is here to help and recommend places to visit.
Definitely the place to be in Negombo.

Laura :)

Yes there is a safety deposit box and like most of the hotels in sri lanka, drivers accomodation might be available but i am not 100% sure. Contact st. Lachlans and find out.

Dear Mr. Gaynor, It's bit difficult to add 2 extra beds in the deluxe room due to the king size bed. however we are able to arrange a suite room which can accommodate your children as well. Thanks you
