Nice Staff
The rooms are old, but still comfortable. Not the most spotless hotel I've stayed in, but what do you expect for less than $20/ night on a beach?

Pot of tea
Very disappointing it has the potential to be so much nicer. Rooms stink bathroom very mouldy. Bad 1st impression of Sri Lanka - now know hotels can be cheap and clean!

Acceptable for a night or two
Reception and dining place are clean and spacious, close to the airport and beach
The hotel is located just like all in Negombo - on "Hotel road". It means that you have a good connection to the airport and some places to eat, shop, massage or get a trip. The hotel is close to right next to the beach, but the beach is shabbby. We stayed in another building very close to the sea. But in my opinion they were of lower standard than the main building - the choice is yours. We had some issues with the reservation in Agoda but the management helped us - a plus. In general - an OK place to stay before/after flight. There are better places to spend the rest of your vacation.

Average room but good location
Staff were very nice on arrival, it's convenient to the airport and it was a decent breakfast
Unfortunately the room was very average. We had ants infested in the doorway. When I tried to open the curtains it fell off the wall and when I tried to fix using the chair in the room one if the legs was broken. The fan also worked very poorly . Considering the cost of the room (even at a discount price) I would have expected more. But the staff were nice and breakfast that was included was nice. The beach itself is not that great but really this is a destination for a transit night only.

Average stay
Stayed one night and the breakfast was good
Budget accommodation. Reasonable price for Sri Lanka but pretty average at best to be honest. Stayed one night before boarding a plane to elsewhere. Was not the best location for that as a bit of a trek out of town if you not into getting ripped off by the tuk tuk drivers. Only somewhere if stay a night , the beach is absolutely filthy and covered with rubbish. Bed o.k, bathroom o.k everything's just really average. People complain bout the noise but it's a event centre of sorts for Sri Lankans I guess, we got to see traditional Sri Lankan dance for free and the people at the party were really polite so no complaints there. Just average really . Breakfast was one of the better we had in Sri Lanka though , make sure to put on muzzy repalint though .
