We stayed here with our 2 boys and rented the family room. This seemed small in the pics but was enormously spacious when we got to it. There were 2 massive double beds a table with 4 chairs, a TV which we didn't test and 2 more chairs to watch it. The shower had hot water and we sat out on our a nice roomy balcony every night from which you can see the ongoings of the street.
The staff were wonderful and went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Breakfast was simple but delicious. My sons both really liked the staff and were even given presents from the shop to remind them of Sri Lanka.
We felt very comfortable and would definitely stay here again if we stopped in Negombo.
The church noise is indeed quite unacceptable, god knows why it has to be so loud (pun intended) but if you are staying only a short period (2 nights in our case) then it's not a problem.
On the plus side there was no church music on Christmas Eve morning!
