I have stayed here several times now and it never disappoints me. I always arrive in the middle of the night yet someone is always there to meet us and get us settled in. The staff are so lovely and helpful. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The breakfast is fresh and good. The pool is clean and well maintained. The location is out of the busy town which is what I like, but still within walking distance to the beach and local restaurants. Getting a tuk tuk into town and to the sights is easy and cheap.

Perfect place to begin or end your Sri Lanka trip.
Really lovely rooms, a nice pool area. The people who run it are really friendly and go above and beyond to make the stay an enjoyable one. It's about a 10 minute walk to the beach and restaraunt area.

Nice hotel about 10 mins walk from shops & restaurants in Negombo. Pool area and garden is much smaller than they look in the photo. It’s a family home as well as hotel.

Excellent home-stay style accomodation. Rooms were very new with private balconies. Nice, quiet location, still within easy walking distance to the beach and main shopping / restaurant strip. Good breakfast and great overall value.

Good overnight stop
We used this hotel as an overnight stop before our flight home. It is close to the airport and therefore very convenient. The hotel looks like it has been recently renovated but there are a few bits that still need finishing. The hotel is clean and comfortable. It is only a few minutes walk from the main coast road where there are several restaurants to choose from. Breakfast is good fruit, yoghurt, toast and eggs of our choice. We needed to leave early and they had no problems with serving us at 6:30am. The hotel is very good value for money. It also has a very nice swimming pool, although we did not have the opportunity to use it.
