good choice when in Negombo
staff helpfulness, value for money, location
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Whatever they could do, they were happy to do so. Francis really made you feel welcome and at home. The room was basic, but clean and airy. Plenty of hot water too. The pool was good. I would recommend this place as a solid budget option when staying in Negombo. My only complaint was the internet would switch from one account to another so you would lose the connection sometimes.

Fine for quick overnight stay
service, room comfort
All fine, except for the loud birthday party they hosted, which made it virtually impossible to sleep until midnight.

Comfortable but needs security.
staff, early breakfast for dinner, comfortable bed.
The stay was fine until we were locked out & could not get out or make anyone hear us to catch a taxi at 4:30 am. We explained the night before that we needed to get out. Also, there was a drunken Russian guest locked out. He was still drunk carrying a bottle of alcohol and got very angry that he couldn't get in and kicked the glass door in and walked in. My friend and I were afraid that he might get angry and take it out on us also since we could find anyone to open the door. Our taxi and police came and we made it to airport, but not a good experience.
