We chose to stay at Serendib after reading the excellent reviews on Tripadvisor. We spent two days and nights there before joining our group to travel around Sri Lanka. All the high expectations raised by the excellent reviews were completely fulfilled. We were picked up early in the morning at the airport and greeted warmly when we arrived and immediately offered refreshments.The accommodation was spacious and spotlessly clean. The pretty garden and pool were put our disposal during the day where often we would be offered and brought snacks and drinks. Breakfasts served in the garden were delicious, flavoured with the fresh herbs picked from the garden by Budikka. Hilary was so friendly and very well informed about anything we wanted to know. The Guest House uses its own associated tuk-tuk drivers whom they will phone when you want to go to any of the nearby restaurants or into the main part of the town. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for Hilary and Budikka from the time of our booking to the time of our departure. Situated as it is in Negombo, Serendib provides an eminently more suitable base to start a tour of the country than Colombo which is actually further from Colombo airport. Not everybody tours; one couple we met were staying there for a month! We stayed in a number of hotels and guest houses on our subsequent tour of Sri Lanka and thought that Serendib was the best. It really was just like staying with good friends.
