Cheap and cheerful place right on the beach. Our room was clean but basic and the bathroom was shower only and had hot water at all times during our stay. There were a few mosquitoes around.

The gardens were nicely manicured and breakfast of fried egg, toast, fruit and tea was filling.

The staff insisted on a print out of the voucher from Agoda. Everywhere else we stayed accepted an email or just a look at the electronic copy.

A cockroach tried and failed to hitch a lift back to the UK in our luggage.

Loved the location.. Room was OK.. Staff was very nice, specially Lewis... Good food... Nice garden... We checked in late but the room was ready for us.. The property is on the beach & you'd love to hang around either in your balcony, or the hammock in the garden or in the waves of the beach

Room Tip: Take 110 or 1closest to the beach..

We stayed one night at the Ceylonica and, compared to most of the other places in Negombo, it was not bad. The rooms we dark, but clean and there was a nice lawn of well manicured grass that led to the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful with information. Given what passes for accommodation in Negombo, I would stay here again if I had to stay in Negombo.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to be the same.

My flight back to Malaysia was 8 hours ahead so my boyfriend decided to stay here after we checked out of another hotel in Mount Lavinia. This time, since he was alone (and tired too) he didn't preview the rooms before checking in.

And here's what he found

1. Stained towels
2. Stains on walls
3. Stains on Bedsheet
4. Chipping wall paint
5. Dirty toilet
6.Dilapidated building structure

My boyfriend knew I would be writing this review so he took the hotel's signboard pictures and the phone numbers too. I hope no one stays here ever, even if you are really desperate and this is the last place on earth...DO NOT STAY here!! It was a big disappointment to our otherwise perfect trip to Sri Lanka

My boyfriend didn't shower, he said it was too dirty and the towel was stained (see the picture i have attached) so he wet one of his tees and wiped himself with it.
