      Our favourite Sri Lanka resort.”

      Attention to detail, cleanliness, beach access

      Of the 4 resorts we stayed in during our Sri Lanka vacation, this one was our favourite. The owner clearly has an eye for detail. This was the only resort with a safe in the room and to offer multiple types of towels. The resort is at a calm location. The resort and the rooms were tidy. The resort is not new, but as it is well kept we thought that the age only gave it a certain charm. The resort residents can use the Beach Lodge, with its clean private beach. Our kids loved the beach, and the shore was shallow so we felt safe despite the relatively strong waves. Our kids loved the pool too. The only minor inconvenient is that it is not possible to have a dinner at the resort, however this is a not a major problem as there are several restaurants within 10min walk.

      We really loved this hotel, set in a quiet off-road position with pretty grounds and and a lovely swimming pool. The owner couldn't do enough to help and our room was full of character and very well presented.

      A little gem”

      Close to airport, great room, excellent hosts

      We just used this guest house to access the airport early next day and it was a real gem, the room was as good as it gets the grounds and pool were nice and the hosts are excellent, the whole area is spotless and nothing was too much trouble, such as arranging early taxi and pre packed breakfast. Well done Morning Star. I would certainly recommend.

      Great staff, very pleasant surroundings, comfortable room

      I really enjoyed my one night at the Morning Star Guest House. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, the room as spacious and clean and the garden around which the bungalows are situated is very pleasant and quiet. There is a nice (small) pool and the beach is a five minute walk away. I only eat breakfast at the Gues House but it was perfectly fine. I would certainly stay here again.

      Great first stop after arriving in Sri Lanka”

      Great staff, beautiful gardens, comfy & spacious room

      We'd chosen to stay in Negombo after arriving at the International airport after a long-haul flight and it turned out to be a great choice. It only took around 20mins from the airport by taxi, and we arrived to very friendly staff and a well-kept guest house set in lovely gardens. The pool was a definite bonus, and the rooms really spacious. The staff were great - very attentive and helpful. We’d been trying to buy sea-sickness tablets and had tried numerous pharmacies but had not been successful as no-one seemed to understand what they were. After speaking to the owner (who spoke very good English), he arranged a tuk-tuk into town for us and explained everything to the driver in his language and told him to take us to a certain pharmacy. He drove us there and within minutes we had what we were looking for! The beach wasn't great but was a good place to relax for a couple of days before moving on elsewhere in Sri Lanka

      Little oasis”

      We loved Morning star! We arrived late & got picked up by a car organised by MS, we got a very warm welcome from Ranjit who showed us our room & made sure we were comfortable. The bed was really comfy as were the pillows, the sheets crisp white & clean. We had a lovely breakfast next morning, overlooking the beautiful gardens, the manager chatted to us & we asked her to check some tour prices & a price for our ongoing trip to sigeriya, we got great prices for an early morning fish market trip with ranjit in his tuk tuk (must do don't let 5am start put you off). A boat trip on the lagoon, which we loved (saw loads of birds including King fishers). And we got a great price for our car transport to Sigeryia. The pool is sparkling & clean & we enjoyed a swim & relax on the sun beds. Outside our room was a little terrace with comfy chairs to sit & read. We really loved the family feel of the place, whilst having the luxury of the pool, lovely cottages & beautiful gardens & great staff.

      This Guest House is only 20 minutes from the airport. Even though they call Colombo airport actually over in an hour from the city of Colombo so staying here since most flights Get in close to midnight. If you can have a dinner here the chicken curry soup was probably the best meal I had in if you can have a dinner here the chicken curry I had was probably the best meal I had during my trip. Staff are very friendly and the advice is useful. A good driver was arranged for me by the owner, Francis, at a good price.

      This is a great little guest house set around a charming courtyard, with a super helpful staff and the smiling welcome of Francis the owner. Ask for a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast and not only will you get a huge breakfast but a delicious one. While the location is not in central negumbo, it is handy to the beach, good eating places and a fun 3 wheeler ride to Negumbo.

      We stayed at Morning Star for our first 2 nights in Sri Lanka. It's a perfect place to get acclimatised in quiet surroundings but with the beach and restaurants a short walk or tuk tuk away. We stayed in a family room which was very spacious. Francis and his team will do all they can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. Francis also organised a driver for us for our onward travel around Sri Lanka (and Ruwan was great thank you Francis!).

Francis, the charming owner, went out of his way to organise tuktuks, taxis and make suggestions about sightseeing. His staff were so friendly and attentive. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The fish, prawn and vegetable curries were delicious. Breakfasts were very good too with an effort to provide variety.
