Reviewed September 18, 2012

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.

Thank you for your lovely comments. The taxi service that we use for your airport pick up is not affiliated with the Airport Authority. Therefore the price for the service will always be higher. The taxi service is Rs.1,300 (for driving distance), the Airport Authority charges the driver Rs.300 to enter inside the waiting area and another Rs.200 for the your name display board. This is the reason the Taxi will charge Rs.1,800. Hope this information was helpful. Thank you

We stayed there for just 1 night before our flight home in the non-AC room (for 2500 rupees). The room was basic but very clean,the owners very friendly (even by Sri Lankan standard)) and helpful. Didn't have a chance to try the food as we came late and left early in the morning (on a tuk-tuk organized by the owners).
There were two things which I didn't like: the matress was too soft for me (but many will find this as an advantage) and the next-door bar played loud music until late (so I had to use my ear plugs), but again for some people it could be a plus again))
Overall, I liked it and would stay there again.

We spent a night here before our flight out of colombo. The owners/staff were so friendly and welcoming, provided us with cool water on arrival and complimentary coffee in the morning, let us check out late and organised a tuk tuk to the airport! Nothing was too much trouble. The room was very clean and although we had a cheaper more basic room it was a very comfortable nights stay. I highly recommend it.

Having checked out a number of guesthouses in the area, my friend and I opted to stay here. The rooms were spacious and immaculate but by far the most impressive thing about this place was the quality of the staff. The owner and his wife were charming and extremely helpful and we were even able to use the kitchen facilities to cook some fish we had bought from the local market!
Despite being fairly new, this place is already giving the more established (and guidebook backed) guesthouses a run for their money!

The whole property is well maintained and the rooms are pleasant and very clean. The owner is extremely obliging and the food though pricey was quite yummy!

Room Tip: For a cheaper option ask for the ground floor room.

we've chosen nybc since it's close to the airport and much cheaper compared to the other hotels in the same area which are offering the "same" standard. we originally wanted to stay in there only a night or two to plan our sri lanka trip a bit more in detail but ended up staying there for 5 nights. it's just a perfect location with good food, very friendly and helpful staff and lovely rooms with the things you were missing in so many other hotels before: unscrambled tv chanels on a flat screen, working wifi in the room, xxxl comfortable bed, an ac which is actually quiet and cooling at the same time, a shower head under which you actually do get properly wet and a lovely balcony. the whole place is kept in clean and nice shape and the owners are more than welcome to hang out with you on their bar or at one of the tables where you can enjoy lovely sea food and other yummie stuff. the beach is just across the street (1 minute walk) and down town negombo is about 5 tuk tuk minutes away. you'll find as well an atm just across the street and many tourist bars, restaurants and shops just up and down the street.

Room Tip: we stayed upstairs in a lovely ac room with tv, balcony and wifi
