Brilliant place and lovely family
The rooms and bathrooms are absolutely clean. The family is super friendly and very polite. This place is located a little away from the happening places in Negombo.

Very friendly staff
Our stay at SSR was really excellent. We did' not book three times during our stay in Sri Lanka if it had been no good.

One street back from the beach and close to a trai
This was our first place in Sri Lanka and it set high standard for the rest of our trip! The room was very large and good air con and a nice bathroom/shower. You can walk around the block and be in the hustle and bustle of Negombo beach with lots of shops, restaurants and of course the beach! We also got a tuk tuk through them to Colombo for the afternoon (it was Sunday and it was like a ghost town so I don't recommend this) which was USD20 and the train back to the stop AFTER the main Negombo one and walked back to the guesthouse with an easy 5-8min walk - this cost us about 40-50rupee. The breakfast was lovely - fruit, yogurt, omelette, tea/coffee and toast. The staff were amazing and very helpful! I cannot recommend this place enough for the price and service and location!! Please stay here!! Oh I didn't use the pool but it looked nice!

As first stops go...
... This ticks all the boxes. Negombo itself is not the nicest, but that's no fault of these guys. Clean, comfortable, decent breakfast, lovely staff. My sole gripe was the tuktuk driver they called for me. I'm assuming he was a friend of theirs. Asked to go directly to the town and could not shake him off. Quoted 350 sl rp for the (very) brief journey. 3 hours, several unsolicited stops to questionable "must see" destinations, which he stopped at repeatedly despite my protestations - "no. I just want to go to the town while it's still light".... 4000 rp. I was essentially taken hostage and then charged for the pleasure. Damn you tiredness. If I'd been less disoriented I would have clearly not fallen for such an obvious scam! But Summerside? Yeah. Very decent first stop. However, next time I'll avoid Negombo altogether and just go straight to my chosen destination or Colombo.
