I initially was looking for a hotel to spend my first night in Sri Lanka because my plane arrived at 11:00pm from Singapore. When I saw the Marina Inn's price and near-beach location, I decided to stay for 2 nights. The remainder of my trip was focused on the archaeological sites around Kandy and Dambulla. My arrival at the hotel... More

We chose this hotel for our first trip to Srilanka through booking.com and was given a family room for accommodation. The owner is very helpful and the service was fantastic. Negombo is closer to the international airport than Colombo, this is the most imp tip for travellers. The beach is 5 min walk and the shopping areas are close by.... More

My experience here very similar to other traveller. Basic but spacious room, good location, very helpful owner and staff. BUT... It was in the process of changing hand when i was there (Dec 30th) and the very helpful Dr Habib was moving out and taking a lot of the fittings with him. I actually met the new owner and he...

The hotel is on a side street away from the busy main road but it was only 5 minutes walk to Negombo beach (which looked nicer than I expected). The 3 bed apartment is a good size and good value for money. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance.

We chose this hotel 20 driving minutes away from Colombo International Airport because of early check in. Had a very relaxed and pleasant stay. Very kind and helpful staff, providing early breakfast before official breakfast time. Reasonnable price and close to beach and restaurants. Try it and be happy.

Dear Antony, We appreciate that you take time to inform us about our short comings, but it is strange that there is no complaint regarding your stay at marina inn, and your own liking and disliking completely personal, it only was because you wanted an extra favour of a very late check out at mid night, and was told you...

The Marina Inn is a Very quiet, clean, peaceful haven. The Dr who owns and runs the place is very hard working and onto everything. This place is very homely and we felt very welcome here...highly recommended! They have a network of 3 places and can always find you a bed. They can arrange anything for you. The man who... More
