At the beach
Somewhat dated hotel with excellent location, big breakfast and friendkly staff, Renovations were going on and they were quite disturbing.

First night, and glad it was the only night...
This hotel is in desperate need of love and updating, the food offering was fine, the rooms were large, but in need of updating and refreshing. All we needed was a good night sleep after a long flight, but were kept up by the internal staff telephone ringing all night. We will not go back.

Generally good
A lot of early noise from building work at the side of hotel a bit annoying at 7am. Otherwise a good value hotel with good food. Swimming pol could do with a clean up around the edges.

Maybe due to current construction, there are too many mosquito within the vicinity. For the pricing, the facilities and rooms must be updated.

Overrated, run down, wouldn't recommend.
The photos do not accurately represent the hotel. The room was out dated, the beds were really uncomfortable. there are many rooms in the back of the hotel that you may end up in, like we did. There are weird sewage smells emanating from places. The bathrooms don't come with complimentary shampoo, which compared to other hotels at this price across the country is out is the ordinary. The staff we the most unfriendly of any hotel we stayed in; for example, our flight was leaving later after we checked out, and the hotel was keeping our bags, but then the pool attendant kept questioning us and made us feel uncomfortable for being there. You can get WAY better accommodation for the price all across Sri Lanka. There are many touts on the beach in Negombo, which isn't the hotels fault, but still annoying, and other places we visited don't have them. If you want a beach vacation, I wouldn't recommend this hotel or city to anyone. I was hoping for a relaxing time on the beach for the last days in SL, but the hotel hosted a wedding, so there was 0 view of the water, just a giant white tent, and loud music. That was just bad luck, but again, for the price, I was really disappointed.

Two star hotel
Service in reception and location
Golden Star Hotel is a two star hotel not a four star, slow service and average menu. Rooms and beds terrible bad condition.

Arrived & was in room within 5 mins, Front staff good. We enquired about one-way taxi to Train station $65 Hotel Vehicle!!!!! Went out hotel, less than 5 mins walk, got the same requirment for $30+ amg. Staff were friendly. Thou, dont want to be asked by staff, locals if I/we have booked trips. This seems to be the way over here... Would I go back again if in area, then for price & location a big yes.
