Stay here! :-)
Price, service, everything!
This place was great. The room was huge and comfortable. The staff were so helpful. The breakfast was so so good! The only very minor negative is that it's located slightly away from the action but it's only a $3 tuk tuk ride away so that wasn't an issue.

Convenient and Comfortable Room
Close to Airport and Railway Station, Comfortable Room and Helpful Staff
Choose this because it is close to airport, and beach. Conveniently going to Colombo and Beach by train or tuk tuk respectively. Originally booked double room, but found that it is just beside the road. Worrying about noise, and changed to another farther away from road. The manager is extremely helpful and kind, guided us to different locations, arranged transportation to airport etc.

Great hotel before or after a flight!
Extremely helpful staff, super close to airport, great shower
Although we were a bit worried driving through the area, once we arrived at Lodge 19 we were pleasantly surprised! This hotel is gated and very secure. The hotel staff were amazing and spoke very good English. We arrived late due to traffic and the manager arranged to have pizza delivered for us. They also packed us a big breakfast for our 5am checkout before our flight. This hotel is in a great location with easy access to the airport. The room was massive and had an amazing shower with great water pressure and hot water. The bed was also quite comfortable. There were a few ants crawling around which was the only minor downside. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel if you need accommodation close to the airport. The staff go above and beyond!!!

This Hotel is not bad except Location
Service, Room is big
Not bad except location. It's far away from Lewis Place and not convenient to have lunch and diner.

Great place to start your trip
cleanness, comfortable, spacious
Lucky to pick lodge 19 as our first stay in Sri Lanka. The guesthouse is located in a quiet road, near the town's center, near the bus station, and near the fish market. It is clean, tastefully decorated, especially the shower is very comfortable and better than most guesthouse I've stayed. We did't pick the seaside guesthouse, and it turned out to be a smart choice, for the seaside in Negombo is so-so. And the breakfast here is just superb! Fresh for the whole day! strongly recommend this place.

Great hotel near the airport
Near to the airport, great rooms, friendly staff and fast internet
A small hotel with very friendly and accommodating staff. We stayed for 1 night prior to a early morning flight as it's ideally suited for the airport but would stay again. The only negative is that one of our 3 rooms (the superior double room) faced the road and so was quite noisy, but this was only a minor flaw.

Ideal location to start (or end) your holiday
big charming room, good value for money, great garden
Our driver seemed a bit concerned that we were too far off the tourist area, but with Lodge 19 we had made the perfect choice for us: big charming room with a tasteful mix of old wooden furniture and a luxurious modern bath including a great rain shower, nice peaceful garden, very friendly and english-speaking staff and a most hospitable owner! A variety of drinks is available any time and the breakfast was very tasty. The beach area where most restaurants are located is only a few Tuk-Tuk minutes away (approx. 1-2 Euro) so the location is not an issue at all. Our 20 month old toddler enjoyed the walled garden where an occasional squirrel or cat could be seen and the artificial waterfall and fish pond which is integrated into the house (sounds weird, looks great!). Our room was facing the street but it is not a particularly busy road and we were not bothered by the sounds. Right behind the garden wall the local train passes a few times a day, but this was not an issue.
