We stayed here on our first day in Sri Lanka as it was close to the airport & they had arranged for a pick up from the airport which in hindsight was a lot steeper than if we had just figured out a cab for ourselves (We paid Rs 1800 while on checking in Negombo we found cabs for about Rs 1200-1300). You could also just pick up a cab from the arrival lounge of the airport. The guest house it self was pretty basic but very clean & the room was pretty large with a wardrobe, AC, a comfortable bed, clean bathroom (really important!) & even a candle. The guesthouse is just across the road from a busy beach and has quite a few restaurants & bars within walking distance. The owners are friendly & helped us out with a tuk-tuk when we were leaving. It’s a good place & great value for money (hotels & guesthouses in Negombo can be surprisingly expensive) especially if you are just looking for pit stop on your way into or out of Sri Lanka.
