              Agoda gave this in a surprise deal as a 4 star property, it's not a star property at all”
              The only positive is the size of the rooms and very friendly staff who unfortunately have little to work with. The upholstery, fans and curtains have not been cleaned in years, moldy and dusty. There are no electric Kettles in the rooms, no floor mats, bathroom mats and no toiletries. There were no glasses or mugs in the rooms either. No iron or table, no blankets, A/c hardly works. Right next to the sea but no fresh sea food served, only frozen sea food. Negombo beach is not a great beach either. All in all, terribly disappointed in Agoda's rating of the property as a 4 star. It is not a star property and more like a guest house. Not going there again. Not recommended for the price.

              Official pics are deceiving. Arriving at the hotel (thankfully only for a couple of hours before we had to go to the airport in the middle of the night), we realized that the whole place is a bit shabby. Room smelled badly (mould?), the sheets were so thin that they were transparent. Staff tries hard to make you feel comfortable, though - most of them quite friendly and helpful. All in all barely recommendable even for a half-night.

              Hard to imagine a worse start to our trip. From smell to variety of stains around all areas of bedding and room it disappointed especially at the price. Only 500 ml water each on arrival as got in around 1 am. Had to walk myself to the pub 1.5 km away to get any. Only redemption was breakfast.

              When I booked this agoda offered me an upgrade...waste of money don't bother. The hotel is fine it's clean & has a good pool so lovely to sit & relax. Staff very friendly, breakfast was good thou sometimes a bit slow on putting more fruit out. The place needs a bit of updating but it's ok for a short stopover.

              Staff hospitality, good location, homely atmosphere, spacious rooms.
              It is a very quiet and peaceful place. For the nature lover the chipping of birds especially in the morning is very pleasant and soothing for ones soul. Taking a walk along the beach road you come across local fishing community busy with their work. People are very friendly and helpful. Negombo is very special. The place is dotted with many catholic churches. You could find a church every two klms .

              Pool, large family apartment, inexpensive.
              We booked the 2 bedroom apartment, which was a treat after a month of triples for our family of 4. The apartment was not fancy but clean,comfortable and very spacious. The children enjoyed the pool. Not a huge range of options in the breakfast buffet but it had enough choice to satisfy everyone. It was a good budget hotel to chill out in for the last 2 days of our trip.

              Staff is receptive to feedback, breakfast is fresh and plentiful, it is inexpensive
              We booked on Agoda, which we would never do again, and I would recommend against (I would book in person and negotiate a rate). There was almost no hot water (barely tepid), for one day the power kept going on and off (I think they might use solar, which I applaud, but this was a high rate to pay for such inconvenience), and there were bugs in the room (not sure what kind, probably mosquitos, but got several bites). There is only a sheet on the bed, no blanket, and the sheets did not smell clean. You are provided two bath towels, no hand towel or washcloth, and no toiletries except a small bar of soap and a two teensy teaspoon-size packets of shampoo. There is no kettle with tea/coffee, and I would not drink the water. In addition, the toilet was running non-stop and we spent quite a bit of time trying to get it to turn off. If I were to visit this place again, I would recommend: 1) be prepared to bring your own linens 2) bring toiletries 3) bring bug/mosquito repellant 4) stock up on clean water at the local store for things like tooth-brushing, etc. The pool looked clean, but we did not swim in it, as it was raining and poor weather when we visited. The breakfast was delicious but it is not like a traditional American breakfast, so you will be disappointed if this is what you are expecting. The coffee was weak and terrible, but since this is tea country, I'd expect that. I felt like the staff tried very hard, and probably would have said they'd try to fix the issues if we complained (but ultimately would have been wasted breath since it would not get fixed while we are there, which is why I'm posting after the fact). As far as a bare-bones place over your head this place was ok. Next time we will definitely book at a different location, however.

              Very nice place to stay. We enjoyed the beds and the large rooms. The pool was excellent. Good location in negombo, close to lots of restaurants and other touristy stuff. The staff was excellent, and the service was impeccable. Very well kept grounds and lots of space and privacy, compared to other hotels we have stayed at in negombo and colombo. The only thing I can say that's negative is that the breakfast wasn't that good, not very many choices, and not that tasty. The dinner/lunch menu was overpriced, just like most restaurants on Negombo Beach Road. We did come in the rainy season and there weren't many guests.
