Comfortable, clean and budget accommodation.
Very attentive staff member(Siri),very safe and a fantastic breakfast.
We would firstly like to say thank you to our host Siri,we arrived very late at night and he was waiting up for us,Siri looked after us like we were his family. The breakfast Siri prepared for us in the morning was delicious.A very well managed guesthouse,well priced and very clean. There is not a lot to see or do around this area,if you want to get away from the chaos of Colombo town,this place is perfect. The ocean is at the end of the street,but you have to walk a further 10- 15 minutes to get to a swimming beach.There are a few restaurants nearby and we had dinner at La Rambla Restaurant,it is only about a five minute walk from Omni Holiday Bungalow,we would highly recommend this restaurant,the waitering staff. Were very attentive and the food was amazing,one of the best restaurants we have experienced. There is a train station about a ten minute walk away and that will get you into Colombo town in around 20 minutes.

Value for Money
friendly caretaker, good personalized breakfast, 5 minutes walking distance to beach.
A pleasant experience of a home away from home, and the kind old caretaker, who took care of us.

Good Guest but Far from city.
Good clean rooms and specialy washroom
The stay was very good but the guest house is far away from the main city attractions. It has a good beach in its proxmity but it is more like a house to me. The Hotel staff is extremely good and supportive. So i ll give 6.5/10.

Adequate option in Mt Lavinia
clean room, plenty of hot water, very pleasant caretaker (although he spoke very little English)
we needed a budget place to stay near colombo for 2 nights and chose omni holiday bungalow in mount lavinia. it is an easy walk from the train station and was quite easy to find. upon checking in, i was surprised to learn that i had to provide a passport sized photo along with my booking confirmation. i asked if i could simply provide a copy of my passport info page, but was told that it had to be a photo. according to the owner, this is a necessary precaution due to credit card fraud, but it was annoying to have to provide this when i was not aware this was a requirement as the room had already been paid for in advance. also, the owner of the bungalow is a travel agent and he wanted to meet us to discuss our plans in sri lanka. we told him immediately we were not interested in booking a tour (we've been multiple times to sri lanka) and it was obvious that he does hit up all his guests to see what business he can drum up on the side. lastly, despite the agoda website indicating that wifi is free here, it is not. it is an expensive extra and we felt deceived. as the other reviewers indicated, you will be charged extra for everything, so the final price of your stay will increase if you opt for anything beyond a simple room.

" BAD " donot recommend this to anyone
NONE except for caretaker Mr. Siri
Room very small, dome tent would have been bigger, package included A/c but we had to shell out another 20 $ for the air conditioning, The heading says wi-fi, this guy wanted additional for the just a 2 hr usage. The manager was very very rude, instead look up tropic inn, a lil before this bungalow thing, he delivered what he promised much cheaper as well, and really well maintained rooms.

Clean and friendly
Nice basic and large room
this is more of a house room than a hotel, but it is fantastic and in a great location. the facilities were clean and up to date and the internet was good enough to get the job done. the only trouble we had was directing taxi drivers to the hotel after we had gone out.

Clean and near the beach
Price is reasonable
We arrived very late from the airport (midnight) and it was not a problem we were checked in quickly after checking our Agoda voucher. The room was clean enough, basic furnishing and bathroom. Its located near the beach. The downside is that the owner charges extra for everything (except breathing!) including pricy internet, hairdryers, air conditioning in the living area, breakfast, the list goes on. Its also within his house and therefore we felt a lack of privacy as he was sitting right outside our room. We only stayed a night and moved on early in the morning. Not sure if laungage was a problem as their seemed to be a little struggle to make our requests understood.

Not the best value
Easy access to train
We stayed here for two nights after arriving in Sri Lanka. The old gentleman managing the place seemed nice enough and it was close to the train stop but we wouldn't stay here again. It is just too over priced for what you are given. Moreover if you want any extras, wifi, breakfast etc it is absurdly over priced. The room is not dirty but not the cleanest. If you are in dire need of A bed it'll due but if you look around there is better value available.

Great Location, just like being at home
2 mins from beach, Hospitality
Easy access to Mt. Lavinia beach.Rooms very neat and tidy.However, obtaining food was the only problem, having to walk across to the hotels nearby or ordering.
