Marine Tourist Guest House
Ranked #20 of 272 Negombo B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 5, 2013

It was a pleasure to stay at Marine Tourist Guest House when I was in Negombo. The room was clean and comfy enough as a guest house. The location is convenient, not so far away from the beach. The most delightful part of staying there was to talk with the warm hearted owner Nishan and his mom and have dinner with them along with other tourists.

Room Tip: The dorm room is just next to the street, so it can be a little bit noisy at night.

This was the third time we visited Sri Lanka and our first time at Marine Tourist Guesthouse. We were very pleased with the way we were welcomed. Nishan (the owner) and his mother did their utmost to make our stay a happy one. We noticed the cleanliness of the building and our room (especially the bathroom). A relief compared to other hotels we visited in Sri Lanka.
We had a room at the third (top) floor with a view over the ocean.
Negombo has a beach that is not so "friendly" as for instance Hikkaduwa but is close by the airport and a good point to start daytrips. So: when visiting Negombo I would surely recommend this guesthouse and stay longer than just one or two nights. Nishan can organize daytrips too for a reasonable price.
Nishan helped me out when my iPhone was covered by seawater and bought a bottle of batterywater for me to rinse it. (no extra charge for that!) After drying it came to life again!

Room Tip: The rooms at the top foor (7 and 8) have a view over the ocean.

We stayed for two nights at Marina guest house and were very fond of the spacious, modern and clean rooms (large & comy beds, balcony, fridge, ..). The owner always went out of his way to make sure we fully enjoyed our stay, booking tuktuks (at local, fair rates), recommending us good (fairly priced) restaurants and making us great breakfast. The guesthouse is located just a couple of steps away from the beach.. I can highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed here at the start of our travels and liked it so much we returned for a night before flying. The owner and his mother are lovely people, ready to help and advise as if you are part of the family. The rooms are spacious and clean, equipped with ceiling fan, AC if you opt for it and mosquito netting. There is a lovely, shaded court yard downstairs where you can relax, read, use internet, socialize. I'll go back there if I ever return to Sri Lanka

This is an ideal spot for your first or last night in Sri Lanka as Negombo is a lot closer to the airport than Colombo itself. Good location on a street adjacent to the beach beside a number of restaurants. The rooms are very nice and large with comfortable beds, mosquito nets and air conditioning. One minus was lack of hot water but that's the norm in SL unless you go for a fairly upmarket place. Wifi signal isn't great in the rooms but adequate and it's strong in the common area downstairs. Overall would definitely recommend this guesthouse for one night. Wouldn't bother spending more time in the town as there are much nicer places south of Colombo

Very nice guesthouse with pleasant and careful owner. 3 minutes to the beach, 10 minutes to fish market by tuk-tuk and 10 minutes walking to the center of entertainment in Negombo. The room was clean and comfortable. Thank you, Nishan!

Room Tip: You will see the Ocean if take 4th floor
