I was SO surprised this place got into the latest lonely planet book! We stayed here 1 night before our flight back to London, we were planning to celebrate the grand finale of an amazing 2 weeks journey through the island, so we didn't go cheap, even though it was just one short sleep. What a mistake! Here is why:... More

A very small and quiet place in front of the sea, full of old people looking for a rest( most of they are germana, of corse) The rooms are clear but old and very simple. The workers are obviously nice, but the breakfast is veeeery simple. If you are looking for peace and relax, this is a perfect place for... More

The hotel must be praised for its fantastic location, simple but clean rooms, and lovely breakfast. Unfortunately, it is situated opposite the only nightclub in the area, which is very loud. Management agreed to give a generous price reduction. Overall, the place is ideal for staying the first night after arriving in SL (will organise airport pickup), before travelling onwards.

Not suitable for families as it is impossible to sleep before midnight... It is very close to the road and a night club with high live music accross the road. God service and nice food Accomodation overpriced

Booked because everywhere else was full. The room was very basic but clean enough and had no wifi in the rooms. The communal area had nowhere comfortable to sit and was perpetually populated by shirtless overweight Germans who were constantly smoking. The worst thing about it however was the value for money (or lack thereof). Just not worth the money.

We stayed here twice. The rooms were always very clean, the staff extremley friendly and helpful and the food, especially the curries some of the best we enjoyed during our holiday. We definitely recommend this place.

The hotel is ok and the romms too. But the noise from the disco next door is hell. Never had such a bad night in a hotel so far. The very cheap and monotone hammering went until 5:15am. Couldnt sleep at all.

Nice hotel in a nice location : facing the ocean, in a "living" area of negombo, close to shops, restaurants, other hotels. Nice beach also, clean the day we where there. It is only 20 minutes from the international airport, and they can pick you up there. Very nice to relax after the flight. Our room was very spacious, quite... More
