8.8 Excellent

Cons: The only disadvantage is the noice from ariplains landing on the other side of lagoon.
5.4 Okay
Cons: The room we received although it was a suite it was very noisy till 12am the downstairs bar music was disturbing.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: All on all an amazing resort. Absolutely beautiful and super large rooms that reflects the unique architecture of Jeffery Bawa. Beds were comfy and a gorgeous and enoumous pool. Food was good and reasonably priced. I expected to be ripped off with resort level Western prices but they were moderate. Similar to most mainstream restaurants around Sri Lanka.
Cons: Three issues: mosquitoes, unusable beach, poor wifi coverage The rooms, restaurants were riddled with mosquitoes. They tried lemongrass oils to keep them away and electric repellant in the rooms which work but there needs to be stronger measures keep them away. The beach is pretty dirty and Rocky with no fun. We assumed kids would be playing on the sand and occasional dip in the sea but it's completely unusable. Plus stray dogs running around. It's not exactly a beachfront property as you have to leave the resort main area and cross the road. WiFi even in rooms were poor signal with several dead zones. Speed was below average

Pros: Suits are big, clean and with a good view
Cons: Staff is highly incompetent and often miscommunicate Breakfast is average for vegetarian

Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: We loved the hosts and the garden and the building (including our room and shower). Everything was charming--older style building, very good hosting. It was nice to have a garden, but be armed with mosquito spray (but this is in general, for Sri Lanka).
Cons: We forgot to use our mosquito spray--probably because it was our last night and we let our guard down--but that has nothing to do with the house and services provided, as the people there were genuinely kind and interested in us and clearly wanted us to have an enjoyable stay!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Owner was extremely helpful and willing to answer queries and make suggestions. Patient and calm. Also, we made several changes during our stay and he was always accommodating. Bikes provided for cycling. Bus stop really close by Space in homestay I Changed to a backpack instead of a suitcase and they stored suitcase Homestay is down a drive, set in a peaceful garden away from busy, noisy traffic of main road. Road with main hotels, eateries, shops and next to beach is about 10-15 min walk away. . Host's use of Sri Lankan foods
Cons: Some mornings you get woken by a local church 's recorded singing/music, really early. Bicycles were a bit dodgey due to age/rust (brakes, seating)
7.9 Good
Pros: My stay was only very short, but the owner picked me up from the airport. Great service and really enjoyed chatting to him about Sri Lanka. Lovely cup of tea on the veranda. Quite location so a great nights sleep.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Good recommendation by a friend of mine to choose this place to stay after our arrival to Colombo int. airport, the hotel provides a transfer for free 24/7 to/from airport. The airport is about 20 min ride in the night/early morning. The owner is very helpful, easy and prompt communication. Breakfast was homemade and delicious.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: WiFi was good, water was hot, the hosts were friendly, the airport transfer was good. The rest was beyond appalling. I think the other reviewers must have been staying in a different place ... it baffles me how they could be so positive. It was definitely over priced.
Cons: This was sold as free toiletries, tea and coffee maker, flatscreen Tv, bath and shower and access to kitchen facilities. It had NONE of these apart from a shower. The kitchen facilities were there but would have failed any hygiene tests ... running ants, decayed and moulding fridge, units literally falling off ... disgusting and completely unusable. The bathroom had broken windows and therefore inadequate mosquito protection, the bedroom had rags draped over 70% of the windows doing a very poor impersonation of light reducing curtains. Towels and linen were threadbare. I also would expect a lock on the door that worked as the very basic level of security. Worse place stayed since travelling around China in the 1980s.. The worst breakfast, particularly the out of date margarine and fat liquid fried eggs, we have had for many a year. Getting the feeling of it? Don’t go there. It is also 30 minutes from the airport, so not that close. The photos tell it all.
7.9 Good
Pros: Rohan and his wife and staff are lovely, this is a homestay/guest house type set up, I believe there are 5 rooms in total. Made me some lovely tea when I arrived. Wifi not the fastest, but definitely worked! Breakfast was great, airport pickup was great, Rohan also took me to the fish market & offered to arrange a lagoon tour or a massage. The room itself was clean and comfortable, simple and pretty no frills. Walked around 10 mins to the beach.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner Rohan met us at the airport and showed us many interesting things in the Negombo area. We learned so much about Sri Lanka. The property is set back in a quiet private area. We want to come back and spend much more time here. It would be a perfect place to explore Sri Lanka. Thank you Rohan for a delightful visit!
6.7 Good
Pros: The host was very nice and helped us at all time when we needed help. The dinner was delicious and the price was absolutely ok. The area with the houses is very nice and calm and perfect for the last stay before our flight back. Airport shuttle was for free :)
Cons: We felt a bit like going back to the 60s/70s as the furniture of the room was quite old. The bed was not comfortable and the AC, which appeared to be 100 years old, was always blowing exactly in our faces during the night so it was quite cold (but of course, without the AC it would have been way too warm). After taking a shower we needed to wipe the bathroom as everything was under water - all in all, the comfort was quite bad :( The breakfast was also disappointing.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: What makes this place are the hosts. You want to check in really early?, "No problem" : check out late? "No problem" : picking up or dropping off at the airport or railway station, you've guessed it, "No problem". Strictly speaking the place hasn't a restaurant, but meals (other than the included breakfast) are available on request & well worth having. Delicious doesn't even begin to cover it, beautifully cooked, varied and fresh. My stop over was my last stop before home. I merely mentioned I'd like to see the canal and Rohan suggested a boat trip round the lagoon, he organised it with a pal, a real highlight, my back was a bit stiff, "how about a ayurvedic massage?"- no sooner said than arranged with a local spa. (Both MUCH cheaper than flashy hotel prices). Rohan & Mali really care about their guests. Should I return to Sri Lanka this place will be my first stop!
Cons: Not really a complaint but locking the room doors required "the knack".
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Rohan and his wife Marie are amazing and warmhearted people! They are very helpful with everything and Rohan showed me around Negombo. The location is very pretty and quiet and you can still walk everything.Breakfast was really good and also the dinner I have had was delicious. I really enjoyed my stay and would come back every time.

9.2 Excellent
Pros: We stayed here after a long flight as it is close to the airport. Our expectations were not high as we were only looking for somewhere basic to stay close to the airport. The room was comfortable, clean and had a fan. However the best part was our excellent hosts - pickup from airport, water on arrival, great email communication, an incredible breakfast in the morning, and all round very friendly and warm hosts.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Its is perfect location to stay before your flight. Close to the airport. Nice personel, big clean room and clean bathroom with hot water! 3 min on foot big supermarket and restaurants.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The room was big with many plugs (not common in Asia), very clean and the bed had a mosquito net. We just stayed some hours before to take a flight a and we arrived around 12 am in the night and they received us. At the beggining they were confused because I booked the room around 5 pm (same day), so we arrived and no one was there, I opened the front door by myself, but then they came down to receive us. The hostel is very cheap so you can’t expect too much, but is a good place to go before taking an early morning flight. At 4 am it takes 12 minutes to reach it by car.
Cons: We just had one towell (I am sure that if I would ask for another one they will gave us an extra one, but it was too late to ask). The bathroom has a window without a glass so the mosquitos could get into the room because the bathroom door also had a space above.

Even breakfast is freshly prepared and the portions are very generous for the price you pay. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean and spacious. Good furnishings. There is No damp and mould like the other properties. The beds are comfortable. The owners put a lot of thought and effort when designing the guesthouse. The design tells you the comfort of their guests are their number one priority. There is a spacious dining area, a kitchen, a scullery, the outside areas is very clean and comfortable with lovely seating spaces. It's a very beautiful guesthouse. They now have an onsite restaurant, serving food and drinks etc. Very thoughtful and considerate gesture. Guesthouses in the area that do not have this option of an onsite restaurant will see you walking 8km return to the nearest restaurant. After a long tiring trip nobody wants to go in search of food and water. Super fast internet and breakfast is included in the price. The hosts can organize transfers to and from the airport, which is fabulous for those arriving for the first time in the country. The airport is close to the guesthouse. The guesthouse offers tours which makes it extremely easy for the traveler. I also saw the owner put up a dart board. Overall my experience at this guesthouse was simply the best. There's a lot of privacy. Tea is offered on arrival. With such good hearted genuinely caring hosts it made my journey all the more memorable. Thank you, and I wish your guesthouse to grow from strength to strength always. This Is Where You Should Stay When You Arrive In Negombo.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Our stay was just perfect. It was our last day arriving from Galle via Colombo to Negombo by train and then we took a Tuk Tuk to the hotel. I decided to stay at the hotel because it's close by to the airport, offers a free pick up and drop off and has good recommendations. We only stayed here during the day until midnight. Would always do it that way. I would highly recommend that place for 1-2 nights arriving at or departing from Sri Lanka. It's a small hotel with great rooms. We loved the super hot shower and the comfortable bed. The room looks super fancy and has all you could ask for. The pool is located behind the restaurant. Super cute and the best for relaxing after a long flight because there is no hussel. The pool is deep at the left side so all the recommendation on the narrow pool might not went all the way to the other side. :D We didn't eat in the restaurant but in the Italian restaurant "prego". The food is ridiculous awesome there. We tried the big brushetta, calzone and homemade gnocchi. It's not cheap but so worth it and just down the road. Close by there is also a supermarket.
Cons: Some parts of the pool floor are missing so make sure you don't hurt yourself. So not ideal with kids but it didn't bothered us too much.
7.5 Good
Pros: Room was great and good shower. Breakfast was amazing. Lots of choice and really well cooked.
Cons: Rooms quite noisy as all off the main walkway through the hotel. We booked this to chill by the pool but looked quite run down, majority of the deck chairs were broken. Pool surrounded by trees (I assume for privacy from neighbours) but means very little sun to sunbathe in. Would recommend as a place to stay but not a hotel to chill by the pool in.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very kind guys We had two great days there!
7.5 Good

Pros: It stood out. Exceptional effort has gone into the room decor. The pool and surrounding area was lovely. Tea/coffee/kettle and small fridge in room.
Cons: The water temperature in the shower was never hot. Lukewarm was okay though as it was hot outside.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The restaurant is very very good, and the hotel manager, Sunil Fernandinho, is excellent at his job. The whole flexibility of the team to deliver exactly what you want is not easy but Sunils team do exactly that.
Cons: Well, while room was very clean it was a bit claustrophobic as no windows. But, a great sleep in a lovely comfy bed.
