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

Terrible hosts”
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.

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!

Absolutely recommendable!”
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 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.
