“Stay by consequence, not by choice”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We were put up here by our airline as a result of them having cancelled our flight (to say that this was by consequence, not by choice, wouldn't be a lie) and when Jet Airways told us their Managing Director stays from time to time (obviously a lie!) our expectations of the place were evidently high. Sadly, the property is nothing to boast of, as this is/was a deli/restaurant in its previous life and the evidence is clear in several places. The rooms are small, bed accompaniments smaller, toiletries virtually non-existent and breakfast - modest. It is located at the start of a 5km stretch on Beach road - day strolls through the market are quite pleasant
The proprietor, Mr Surakshan Dias is a proud assertive gentleman, laying down the law from the get-go. With him its more a case of what needs/has to be done rather than what can be offered (a quality that doesn't go too far in the service industry). Just stay away from his computer and you'll have a decent stay :)

Room Tip: Rooms inside the proprietors premises are very small and have noisy aircon's Toilet doors in so...

We spent our first night here,the room was very clean with hot water, the owner was extremely nice and sat down with us to give us some advice on Sri Lanka and places to visit. This guest house is not in any tourist area, so if you want to explore Negombo and meet the locals it's a great place to stay. It is located about 10 minutes from the bus stop and train station. good place to stay when starting your trip.

We're a group of family and friends on a motorcycle tour around central and southern Sri Lanka. We wanted a reasonable place to stay in Negombo, close to Colombo's airport without paying huge resort prices. The Hamilton Deli has a reputation for good Sri Lankan food but not a lot of ratings for its accommodation. Anyway we decided to give it a try.

The place is right on the Dutch Canal, as advertised and was originally a well-to-do doctor's house and surgery, dating from the early years of the 20th century. The rooms are pleasant but not outstanding, the bathrooms plain but functional. There is a very nice sitting room adjacent to the bedrooms making the accommodation block pleasant and comfortable. Our host, Surakshan Dias was pleased to help in any way that he could.

Sadly, one of the reasons that we chose the Hamilton Deli, the food, wasn't available because the chef had gone on vacation back to India! The owner's wife still managed to cook up a storm for us, so we didn't go hungry.

All in all, we liked the Hamilton Deli and will stay there again before we leave.

Great & secure place to stay in srilanka at an affordable price. This is close to Columbo airport near to beach. The building which is built during the British era is mainntained along with the furnitures. Enjoyed great hospitality there and Srilankan Cuisine which they offer is very delicious.
Thanks to Mr Suraksan Dias (+94777888484) for their wonderful hospitality.

Room Tip: Rooms opposite to the main building are excellent
