    We reached at hotel and got a huge surprise that our booking was cancelled. Hotel owner Udy helped us with the accommodation at other hotel but that turned out to be our biggest nightmare are our money got stolen and we were not provided breakfast or any other facilities which we were looking for. Our stay at Sri Lanka was one of the worst experiences ever had

    Comfortable Accommodation 10 minutes away from the airport ”

    Thank you, Udi for being such a great host! The establishment has function rooms downstairs for weddings, other events, and their rooms are located on the second floor. From the main road, you have to turn into a small road, which is around 3 minutes by walking. Then you'll see this big compound by the water. Comfy rooms which is ideal to relax in before you fly out back home or before you start your trip to the main tourist destinations :)

    Very Good hotel”

    We stayed at White Palace for 2 nights before our return flight. The rooms are really spacious and clean,, with good a/c, plus tea/coffee making fac. They also serve a good breakfast. The hotel is at the end of a side road, so it is quiet during the night. It is a short bus ride into Negombo town, about 10 mins. and costs 13 SLR. It is a great location for travel to/from the airport. We went by tuk-tuk, it was approx.15mins.and cost 500 SLR. We would recommend and stay again without hesitation.

    Mixed feelings”

    First of all, the staff and owner are just outstanding. So, so helpful. As for the hotel itself, I've very mixed feelings. My room had just a thin door, such that I could hear everything from outside. The door was also of transparent glass, with a curtain that did not reach to the floor. Therefore, I wouldn't want to stay there with my girlfriend. The place also needs maintenance badly, a renovation could do wonders to this hotel. There is also not much around. A tuk tuk the nearest beach is 300 Rs. To the airport it's 500 Rs. You can walk to the train station. There is good food around, Naoymi's.

Although Google maps took us via a roundabout direction, we were able to reach the place with no issues. The hotel has a decent breakfast (includes a couple of local cuisines) and the food was tasty.

    Transit at Negombo....”

    Udi our host is just an outstanding person/professional. The rooms are clean and spacious. This is an excellent transit or short-stay hotel. The breakfast is excellent. Your host will meet to personally welcome you be it late past midnight or early at 6 am. The view of the lake/backwaters is very enchanting. Sushila the head member of the staff works hard to make your stay comfortable. Recommend unconditionally. Best to ask for Rohita for your Tuktuk needs/trips.
