Good place to stay arriving/leaving Sri LankaPosted Apr 26, 2014
Pros: Large room/bathroom, breakfast, quiet, pool, lovely staff, not far from the airport.
Location: There are a lot of restaurants in walking distance
This hotel is good for a couple of nights. I arrived straight from the airport for 2 nights before I started a tour of Sri Lanka. The room was large and clean. I didn't go into the sea but spent my time by the pool which was very good. Buffet breakfast was good - eggs made to order and various other options available. I had just arrived after a long flight, so wasn't in the mood to do much exploring. After my tour, realised Negombo is the best place to stay instead of Colombo after/before a flight - being near the airport!

Old Hotel that really needs renovationPosted Mar 7, 2014 on Hotels.com
The hotel is located facing a beach being the best feature plus a reasonable breakfast. Other than that, the rooms are old and run down, furniture creaks, showers leak, outdated air-conditions that take time to cool the room, tv with fuzzy reception, and loud drumming music from beach parties (non hotel guests) makes it hard to sleep. Around the hotel are a couple of boring restaurants which offers little choice on their menus; you need to walk a further few kilometers up the road to find more interesting menus. Hotel has a car park at the back which comes in handy if you hire a car. If you are catching a taxi from Colombo, drivers from there may not be familiar with Negombo and end up being lost especially with the bad street lighting at night.

Avoid this hotel at all costPosted Jan 22, 2014
Pros: The pool and dining room were ok.
Cons: Yes. The entire wing I was in needed major renovations , painting and fixing the electric power outlets which were completely inadequate! It's a dump
Location: Location right on the beach with a great pool. That is were the positives end. Avoid this hotel even if they pay you to stay there!
The first room I was shown I was shocked by its shabby condition. It was more like some backpackers accomodation. I asked for another room which they obliged me with. It was better but still the worst hotel I had in my four weeks of travelling in Sri Lanka. It's location is fantastic, the pool and dining room are ok but the rooms need several millions of dollars for refurbishing. I had to change the fridge plug for the a TV plug as there was only one power point in that area. The staff were lovely too but I ended up leaving two days sooner than I had booked for because of the condition of the room and the facilities.

Great location obliging staff.Posted Jan 17, 2014
This hotel is great , on the beach and a lovely bar over looking the ocean. We couldn't fault anything. It made our holiday. We got complimentary water every day which was a lovely touch. The new year gala was magical.

Staff is friendly but slow, quaint sleepy townPosted Jan 9, 2014
We booked 3 rooms but front desk staff only printed one room and had to wait a long time for the rooms. And one room was smaller even though all of them should have been the same size. Location was good and breakfast was also good. Would stay again.

Great beach front hotelPosted Dec 10, 2013
Extremely friendly and helpful staff, great view, wonderful breakfast, close to shops and restaurants. The only big downside is that wifi is not available in all of the rooms... Helpful hint: check whether there is going to be a beach party before booking; if you value your sleep at all, choose another date.
