We are thrilled to be the first people to write a review for this fantastic new B&B in Negombo. We had originally booked a room at The Palace Hotel just down the road (which was terrible, dont go there) but when we walked past the Blue Elephant were easily persuaded to switch hotels. The Blue Elephant has 7 rooms so it is a nice small size and it offers excellent value for money too. We spent a lovely last evening in Sri Lanka here and would highly recommend this place.
Specifically the great things about this place were that the owner and staff here were very friendly indeed, the hotel and rooms are nicely designed in contemporary style, there was
satellite TV, wifi and air-con in the room, the hotel felt very clean, the shower was strong and worked easily, we had a good breakfast (included in the price) and also very conveniently the owner runs an excellent gift shop downstairs where we were able to buy lots of lovely presents for people back home before getting on our flight. All in all VERY highly recommended.
