lovely stay ”
good location situated by the seaside resort. a couple minutes walk to buses stop for central colombo. 10-15mnts walk to a cozy railway station, that journey alone is a pleasant experience. my luggage was too large & heavy to carry travelling around sri lanka, the own was kind enough to let travellers leave our stuff at the hotel without charges. this helped me immensely or id probably wouldnt be able to travel as i did. staffs are extremely polite & helpful. id strongly recommended!

Just a stop over ”
We only stayed for one night on our last night in Sri Lanka, location was good, close to beach, easy walking distance to train or bus stops. Main road has shops and food out lets and was close by. The place it's self may not look pretty and could do with some paint and a tidy up but staff are friendly and the place is comfortable, there is a nice common area with an out door deck with chairs and tables and even a shared fridge/freezer. Not the best value for money place we stayed in on our 2 week trip but overall pretty good.

Good management, location and support staff....but”
There's a full time senior gentleman who manages the guest house,but the lack of facilities like lifts make the movements cumbersome esp. with heavier luggage.Currently, the management had inducted a Tamilian houseboy John who apparently, was quiet efficient in housekeeping and helping the guests.For the location, the guesthouse charges are reasonable,but they need to do more in providing individual room facilities and keeping the rooms free of wall lizards, cockroaches etc. Overall, I would not recommend anyone staying out in Colombo, as its a mighty expensive place esp. when compared to Indian metros with lack of any proper shopping mall and enough stuff in the supermarket.There's hardly any touristic attraction in the city and cleanliness is just a hyped up myth if you travel to the inner parts of the city.....they still use the open drainage system with forked out filth kept on the sideways for collection.There's also no metro for the city and the train system hark barks to the days of metre gauge.Best to avoid the city with gruelling,sticky weather,and if have already arrived in the country then head for the hills!

Good value and location”
Friendly staff, comfortable room, good location
The staff is very friendly and helpful although they don't speak English well. The room was comfortable with a good shower and plenty of hot water, comfortable bed and pillow, and t.v. The guest house is well located 5 mins from the beach and 2 min walk to shops, restaurants, and bus route. We will stay here again when we return to Colombo. I highly recommend this place. It's a great value.

Truly Golden”
Staff (and their family), room size, beautiful balcony and trees
Absolutely wonderful place to stay! The staff and their family was remarkable, knowledgable, loving and kind. The rooms were amazing and the bed was the best bed that I have slept on in several years! the staff at Golden Bridge are so warm and caring and helped me learn so much about Mount Lavinia, Colombo and other parts of Sri Lanka. This is a 3 star Guest House with remarkable prices! It is just a short walk to the beach with great restaurants and an unforgettable view of downtown Colombo as you are walking the beach. And Gold Rd. is just one street above the Golden Bridge where you will be able to find nearly all things a tourist or similar would need. Mount Lavinia is a remarkable place! And right next door to Golden Bridge Guest House is a beautiful Buddhist temple and school! I can't recommend enough Golden Bridge Guest House! Grandpa, I set up the dart board upstairs for you to practice at while I am away! I love you all there, truly I do. I will cook everyone the most amazing and delicious dinner when I come back. I think about everyone there each day and it makes me smile =) I miss hearing "it's a small world" while having fresh Sri Lankan Coffee and gazing out at a horizon glimmering affection, nature and love.

Older hotel but great location with friendly staff”
Location, staff and cleanliness
Although the hotel is past its prime, it still has a great handy location, massive rooms and a terrific shady patio balcony on which to enjoy breakfast etc. Our room had the added advantage of a huge separate bathroom with oodles of hot water and a small private back balcony to hang washing. It is a short walk to the beach, etc. It is certainly not flash and it is showing a bit of age...but very comfortable and charming nonetheless. Owners and staff are incredibly helpful and friendly.

I did not understand the rating on agoda because it seemed to be a very nice guest house. But we were very disappointed as we got there. Room and bathroom were in a very bad condition and not clean and full of moskitos like crazy. The staff was very helpfull. Even it was only for one night we could not enjoy our stay there

The good location, close(attentive) and perfect service, excellent(different) hotel!!!
Hotel I have reserved on Agoda. At the airport has taken a taxi and has arrived, at a gate me have met, have taken my bags and spent in a hall, where the owners of hotel have accepted me very warmly and hospitably. Me have offered a cool firm drink of hotel, which I have grown fond and then saw it(him) each day of. After me spent in my number(room), which very much has liked to me. Initially I planned, will stop in this hotel for three days, the very pleasant service, support in shops and on a beach is benevolent also, by the way which is in 100 meters, it is very convenient, I simply have grown fond of this hotel and has decided(solved), will stop in him on all time of rest. Though I leaved for other cities and hotels, early in morning to me prepared breakfast, saw off and met, but came back in hotel, all is so excellent. In hotel there are a lot of tourists from the different countries, acquaintance both dialogue a pleasant and interesting, perfect place for rest. Large thanks, both owner and personnel.

Female solo traveller”
The family were very friendly and helpful but not obtrusive. The room was basic but clean. Room cleaned and fresh linen and towels provided every 3 days.
O.K. In the end. The security for my room was questionable. None of the keys fitted and of the locks, the barrel bolts inside didn't work either. I could lock it with my own lock when going out and could lock my bedroom from the inside at night. As a female solo traveller room security, especially for getting a good night's sleep is very important. No one tried to enter my room when I was in it and my posessions were safe when I was out, but I didn't slept very well the first few nights due to this and a noisy long term resident who liked to stay up late. The family were very nice people and the Wi-Fi worked in common areas and in my room.

Friendly family-run hotel”
Very helpful staff !! Conveniently located. Good value for money.
I took taxi from the airport at 23:00 and checked in midnight. When the taxi driver called for the direction, the staff was very sincere and helpful; made me fall in love with the hotel immediately - especially she would have not know she was on the speaker phone. Two more staffs came outside to help the driver to find the hotel. In the next morning, the staff's father greeted me with the friendly smile and showed me the direction to the beach. Overall the staff/atmosphere was great I will be returning!
