Haven in busy locale”
Great room and property. Lush garden with swimming pool. Amazing Sri Lankan breakfast. Close to beach, shops and restaurants. Could not handle the female owner treating her staff so badly, consistently. This ruined it for me. Apart from this they were kind to me and helpful in booking a tour.
We swapped to this guest house for our last night in Sri Lanka after having not a great stay at Hush Lagoon at the start of our holiday, we only wished we had found it for our first 2 nights stay. Brenda and Ron were great hosts, the house is situated down a side street away from the hustle and bustle of the town, which I can't recommend enough as Negombo is very noisy. It was about a 10 to 15 minute walk into the town to eat in the evening. We didn't get to use the pool, but it looked great and clean. Breakfast was whatever we asked for, poached eggs, bacon, sausages etc however I am sure they would have rustled up anything you requested. There was a fridge upstairs for guest, where you could buy beers, soft drinks, chocolates etc all at a much cheaper price than the hotels! 20 to 30 minutes to the airport so an ideal location to arrive or leave Sri Lanka and transport can be arranged and a very reasonable price.
Very attractive B & B convenient for airport ”
Beautiful garden & pool. Excellent breakfast. Convenient for restaurants. Much more peaceful option than Colombo.
Great option in Negombo”
The guesthouse was so clean it was almost scary. Great value for money IMO.
A little gem in Negombo”
I stayed at this delightful guest house for 1 night with my brother. I must say the Ayubowan Guest House was a most welcomed stay after a long flight from the UK. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, we were treated with warm friendly smiles from the owners Ron and Brenda. They were both so amazing hosts and were always helpful and friendly. The guest house itself is a little gem in Negombo. The whole guest house including rooms were clean and well maintained by both Ron, Brenda and their staff. The pool was an added bonus especially after a long flight. Breakfast in the morning was exactly what l read about in previous reviews. Delicious! A huge thank you to Ron, Brenda and their staff for a truely lovely time at your beautiful guest house.
Very good guesthouse and the owners are very helpful and nice. Must go!:)
Good place to recover from flight and get your bearings. Delightful place and helpful owners”
Handy for airport and restaurant/bar strip but in a quiet back-street with nice garden and welcome pool. Sri Lankan breakfast recommended. Good source of information to sort out your trip
While "Ayubowan" in Sinhalese may be a welcoming greeting, it is a pity that the attitude of the "hosts" at this guesthouse does not match the sentiments of the greeting. The two hosts' previous work experience apparently consisted of 29 years as a prison officer for one, while for the other the occupation was that of a local government employee. As an ex-pat British couple, they seemingly created themselves "jobs" by owning this guesthouse. They fail to appreciate that to be a host is not merely to have a "job", it is a service occupation. The word "service" is crucial. If they feel trapped by the choices they have made, then get out of it and return to England. The guesthouse itself is beautiful, and the pool delightful, but a rule that it can't be used after 6.30pm when the day is still 30C is ridiculous. Graham Ross
Perfect for a peaceful getaway”
I was traveling just to have a beak and to lie by the pool for a few days and this was the perfect guest house to do this. I didn't particularly like Negombo as a destination but if you're here to go on day tours or to chill out then this place is idea. It's nice to get to talk to the hosts and other guests and it's not a stuffy hotel. The only thing I will say about facilities is that the water pressure wasn't great in my room, but other than that I can't fault it.
Best of British!!”
This wonderful british couple made our stay a truly awesome one! The place is immaculate & the breakfast to die for....Bacon AND a sausage,which we thoroughly enjoyed after 3 wks in Sri Lanka. I would not hesitate in recommending this Gusethouse to anyone and when we come back shall definitely be staying there again
Short stay, quiet and comfortable”
In town for a short getaway, really enjoyed the proximity to the airport and the local beach in town. Ron and Brenda provided a sparkling clean premise, serene garden, and plenty of advice. Highly recommended!
We can totally recommend this guesthouse. Brenda and Ron are great hosts, very professional and organized and have a delightful humor. Location is great as well: calm but calm to the beach and lots of restaurants.
Great short stay - felt like home”
Owner might seem a bit intimidating at first but he's really nice and super helpful Lovely guesthouse with great value for money Nice location and great breakfast.
Great Place, Great Owners”
We arrived at Ayubowan after a long flight from the UK and it was a great place to spend the first night. Ron and Brenda were very welcoming and ever so helpful. Their home is lovely, with a wonderful secluded garden with swimming pool. Ron's breakfast was awesome too.
Lovely guesthouse, ”
exceptionally clean and quiet, comfy bed, good location, lovely helpful owner. Will stay again when next back in Sri Lanka
Superb in every way. ”
We had a fantastic time at Ayubowen. Ron and Brenda provide the perfect place to stay; nothing can be faulted.
The best place we stayed on our 3 week trip”
We only stayed one night but I honestly wish it had been at least 3 before we embarked on our trip around SL. The garden and entire ambience were unmatched once we left Ayubowan. I can honestly say the English hosts really know how to do it properly and the Sri Lankans for all that they are beautiful people might take a large leaf out of their book! Fantastic place, fantastic hosts and a fantastic breakfast.
A must stay when visiting Sri Lanka”
With airconditioned rooms, a lovely pool and plenty of spots to relax outside in the gardens, Ayubowan guesthouse is the perfect way start or end to your trip in Sri Lanka. Only 20 minutes from the airport and lots of resturants near by.
Perfect place to start or end your holiday”
You feel like you are home :) Ron and Brenda are excellent host, the house is clean and the location is perfect, the beach and the train staition is in walking distance.
Ron and Brenda have created a welcoming serene guesthouse. The gardens are immaculate with many native birds visiting. The pool is great for a refreshing dip after a day out sightseeing and shopping. Ron and Brenda have great local knowledge and recommendations, and can organize onward travel or a local taxi or tuk tuk. Thanks for a great stay.
