    Great Hospitality ”

    Hotel staff is fantastic! I ate a meal at a local restaurant and came down with food poisoning. My husband and I had a late flight that evening and had checked out of our hotel room already. Once I told the staff I needed to hangout somewhere near a bathroom they immediately tried to make me as comfortable as possible. Their hospitality and generosity were greatly appreciated and they never hesitated to help.

    Pleasant stay. Will surely return again. ”

    + Cozy, spacious and clean rooms, very warm, friendly and efficient staff and crew. - No lift service is available and we had to climb up to 6th floor to our room. Swimming pool is too close with the furnitures and water splashes all the time while were relaxing on the lazy chairs. Would have been better if the bathroom were fitted with handheld shower too apart from the available fixed shower.

    great place to recover from a flight”

    The large suite was a very comfortable place for us to relax for a couple of nights after arriving on a late night flight. The breakfasts were among the best we had in our trip and the swimming pool was lovely. Only the location was somewhat disappointing, so far from the main town of Negombo, but it was easy enough to get around by tuk tuk.

    It is a good laocation and also clean. The rooms a very large but i found the lighting in the room is not enough. You can not open the windows because they are facing a corridor who ever passes can see the inside of the room.

    Well hidden but charming place ”

    nice place, very good cuisine

    we stayed there on our last night, before flying back home. the hotel is well hidden and not easy to find, but only a 15 minutes drive away from colombo airport. it is a little treasure and we were all positively surprised. the staff was very friendly, competent and always tried to help. the food was excellent and prepared with a lot of fantasy so that the eye too was enjoying it. only disadvantage: a little noisy during the night. we recommend it for all your short stays after arriving at and before living sri lanka. the fact that it is not situated on the beach should not be considered as an handicap! in other beach hotels in negombo you get less value for your money.

    Worst place we stayed in Sri Lanka, not recommended”

    The hotel looked alright in the photos but was not the same when we reached. We had had a long day travelling from Matara to Colombo by train and reached the hotel in the evening. It was completely empty with no other guests during peak season in February. The food at the restaurant was pretty bad. The staff seemed friendly enough but didn't speak English that well and it ended up becoming very frustrating to communicate with them. Thankfully we were only there for one night. The room was average, not very clean but the air conditioning worked which was good. For some reason there was a mix of English and Sri Lankan plugs in the room and most of them didn't work so we couldn't charge our phones. In all, it was a pretty bad experience ending our otherwise amazing trip to Sri Lanka.

    Beach and restaurant location, clean, good English

    The hotel located off the main high street in the beach area of Negombo. The main bars and restaurants are located just a short walk from the hotel. The room was clean and well maintained, the staff have good English. No need to spend 9USD on breakfast there is an array of places that you can eat at outside.

    Mixed experience”

    Quiet location, near to beach, helpful staff

    There were good and bad things about the St. Lachlan. On the positive side: the staff were very pleasant and helpful, the hotel itself is perfectly nice with a small pool and comfortable lounge / restaurant and the room was a good size (large bedroom and separate lounge / kitchen) even if the bathroom was a little on the small size. On the negative side: I didn't think the room was especially clean, the place itself has clearly been refurbished but this has not been carried out in a very effective way and so everything is a bit wobbly or not affixed properly, the TV stopped working and had to be replaced whilst the air conditioning failed to cool the room below about 26 degrees.

    Great hotel in Negombo”

    Clean, quiet location and good link to the airport

    We stayed here before catching a flight home. The hotel is on a quiet side street and you dont hear any of the noise from the main street which is a minute walk away. the pool area is nice, and the bar restaurant is an nice place to while away a few hours. the staff are great here and very welcoming and attentive, the room was nice and clean with a soft but comfortable bed, there is a fan and also ac which was nice. The bathroom is also clean and the shower was good. The hotel offer a shuttle service minbus to the airport which is about 2000 rupees ( this price is pretty competitive with the price we were quoted at the airport) and was very comfortable and efficient. the airport is about 25 minutes drive from the hotel, but this timing is dependent on traffic. we would happily stay here again at the hotel for a night before getting on a plane, but the beach on Negombo is not very nice, it was crowded and had a lot of rubbish on the beach and the beaches on the south coast are beautiful, deserted and clean in comparison.

    A little gem”

    The staff, the food and the location

    The hotel is off the main street, which means it's quiet, though perhaps a challenge to find, and the beach is only a few minutes walk away. The staff were adorable and always smiling and helpful. The food was delicious and beautifully presented - better than Lords, which is the popular place on the beach strip! The pool is ideal for children but too small for any serious swimming. For me it was the perfect place to begin and end my trip to Sri Lanka because it is only 20 minutes or so from the airport and a truly relaxing environment. Good shower, comfy bed and probably the best wifi connection of my entire trip. The only downside that, because if the way the building is designed, other guests walk by your windows to get to their room, but you can simply lower the blinds.

    The price on agoda almost made our decision for us, but when we got there the hotel was off the beaten track so no noise issues. The staff were really friendly and the food was very nice with a full range of both european and sri lanken food. They try very hard to please and for the last night or two before flying home, that's all you need.

    I had a very enjoyable stay. I originally only planned to be there for a few days but as my travel plans then changed I elected to stay much longer. The staff at St Lachlan accommodated my request without any problems at all, and also allowed me to check out late afternoon without incurring a charge for an extra day.
