Convening start for a trip to Sri Lanka
This Guest House is only 20 minutes from the airport. Even though they call Colombo airport actually over in an hour from the city of Colombo so staying here since most flights Get in close to midnight. If you can have a dinner here the chicken curry soup was probably the best meal I had in if you can have a dinner here the chicken curry I had was probably the best meal I had during my trip. Staff are very friendly and the advice is useful. A good driver was arranged for me by the owner, Francis, at a good price. It is not the easiest place to find but it is very close to the beach and very quiet. Very clean and welcoming. I felt safe, secure and healthy at all times.

Friendly and Peaceful
A nice, quiet and peaceful place where one feels insulated from the hustle and bustle of Negombo and can fully recover from the plane journey. The staff are all very helpful and friendly, and I enjoyed my conversations with both Francis and Ivan. Graeme

As friendly as the reviews led you to believe
This is a great little guest house set around a charming courtyard, with a super helpful staff and the smiling welcome of Francis the owner. Ask for a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast and not only will you get a huge breakfast but a delicious one. While the location is not in central negumbo, it is handy to the beach, good eating places and a fun 3 wheeler ride to Negumbo.

Look no further than this guesthouse!
We stayed at Morning Star for our first 2 nights in Sri Lanka. It's a perfect place to get acclimatised in quiet surroundings but with the beach and restaurants a short walk or tuk tuk away. We stayed in a family room which was very spacious. Francis and his team will do all they can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Francis also organised a driver for us for our onward travel around Sri Lanka (and Ruwan was great thank you Francis!).

Perfect Introduction to Sri Lanka
We spent our first two days here and couldn't have been made to feel more welcome. Francis, the charming owner, went out of his way to organise tuktuks, taxis and make suggestions about sightseeing. His staff were so friendly and attentive. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The fish, prawn and vegetable curries were delicious. Breakfasts were very good too with an effort to provide variety. We felt very much at home here and were sad to leave.

Lovely staff, more attention to cleanliness required
Francis and his staff were delightful and very helpful. The breakfasts were ample and tasty and so was the evening meal, which you have to pre order in the morning. The only criticism was that the bedroom décor appeared neglected and not terribly inviting though the bed was most comfortable. The bathroom appeared to have not been cleaned thoroughly on the first night, with dead cockroaches round the back of the toilet and a live one the following morning. there was also a strong smell of drains which fortunately disappeared the following evening.
