Lovely place to stay ”
We stayed here for 4 nights and loved the place. The lady was very very helpful, she arranged us everything we needed (from a scooter to tea in the room when we felt sick to extra bedsheets, new towels, an extra cleaning of the room, etc). We couldn't ask for more. Breakfast was very good, it was a small party each morning! The hotel isn't in unawatuna city itself, but just outside the village. If you don't have a scooter, this might be annoying. However for us it was no problem and we enjoyed the quiet nights.
Comfortable Beds, average sized Bath and good decent water pressure. The pool seem to be relaxing even though its small (we couldn't use it). However I wish they had Tea/Coffee making facilities in the room which was a bit of a dissapointment. Overall a decent Stay
The hotel rooms have balconies either overlooking the river and swimming pool or the entrance of the hotel. The double rooms are spacious, clean, and complete with towels, shampoo, shower gel, and lotion. Breakfast was included with toasted bread, butter, jam, egg, fresh fruits, yogurt, and coffee or tea. The location of the hotel is around half hour from airport.
Great value, wonderful place”
Nice, modern and clean rooms. Soft, comfortable bed. Lovely pool and property backs onto a river. Quiet at night, we had a peaceful sleep. Staff are friendly and helpful. Short walk to the beach and restaurants. Breakfast consisted of toast, fruit, eggs and yoghurt. We had a pleasant stay and would recommend.
Great place to stay with a friendly staff”
Very accommodating, clean, new and modern. The main road with all the restaurants is a 10 min walk, but it's quieter than most places. Bed was super comfy. Breakfast was excellent with a perfectly cooked over-easy egg.
Cheap, clean and comfortable”
Pros: Clean, A/C, fridge, comfy bed, good breakfast although we would have preferred Sri Lankan breakfast. Cons: The pool could be cleaner and there are no sun lounges to relax. The juice at breakfast is terrible and should be made from fresh fruit not powder. Can recommend if wanting something quiet and clean for small budget.
Simple, clean, great value”
This place appears still new, and the room and bathroom are still in excellent condition. The staff are extremely nice, even though we arrived past 2am from the airport. Breakfast was just simple continental but still very filling. It's located in a quieter area of town, with a 10 minute walk to the beach. You would need a tuktuk to go to the main part of town and the fish market.
A lovely little property and a pleasant staff team”
Everyone here was lovely from the minute I arrived. Breakfast was great, basically three courses and right beside the river. Rooms were comfortable enough :-) The owner even had a member of staff give me a lift to the train station on his motorcycle. Great service!
Was a nice stay”
The hotel located in Negombo city about 20 min. from Colombo int' Airport, The staffs were been very very friendly and helpful feelings really like a home, The room was very clean with a good size, WiFi had a strong signals, I got a TukTuk driver his Name is Nilanth and he really helped me a lot to tour around with a very reasonable price, i can suggest this driver for someone who is interested and here is the contact details for this driver, Skype: Shehan chmpaka, Facebook: Shihan Silve , and his mobile number is: +94777470863, Thanks.
Fabulous and unassuming ”
Quiet location within easy walking distance of the beach and some great restaurants and bars. Excellent value for money with a very big breakfast! The rooms are fully furnished and very comfortable with all the mod cons and definately one of the best places I was able to stay in during my trip. able to organise a spa treatment and transport to the airport through the hotel.
Very good hotel with nice staff.”
The room is very clean and well equipped. We stayed on the second floor and there is a balcony in the room. The staff greeted us with nice cool drinks and helped with our luggages. The checkin was pretty quick and smooth. The boy at the reception was very friendly. The food for breakfast was really good and delicious. They even have yoghurt for breakfast, which was very nice. There is a church close by. I would like to stay here again if we come back to Negombo in the future!
Excellent Value for money”
Could not really find fault, small neat garden, quality building, very clean premises, attentive staff, good privacy, quiet location, very reasonable breakfast, we stayed two nights and would recommend as good value for money.
Oasis in quiet neighbourhood”
We stayed just for one night. Our flight was very late and also the road seemed to be little complicated for taxi driver, we arrived in the middle of night thought the hotel staff was waiting for us. There was no breakfast time, they said 'just come down stairs when you like', so we did. Very nice, small opened restaurant looking to a river. We got continental breakfast together with fresh fruits platter. We didn't use swimming pool because the weather was not good. Only one negative was that we didn't get hot water in shower. The room was very clean, nice, and value for money
Comfortable stop over hotel”
We stayed here for one night after travelling to Sri Lanka. The perfect stop off before heading down south. Probabely the best value for money I have seen in a long while. Not flash but clean, comfortable and a balcony overlooking the canal. Quiet and close to restaurents/ beach.
Great boutique hotel!”
We arrived late at night to Colombo and were heading to Kandy the next day so we wanted to stay near the airport (Negombo is closer than Colombo). As it was night time, the taxi driver had trouble finding the hotel but we called the hotel and they gave the driver quick and clear directions. Even though it was quite late, they were waiting for our arrival, and took us up to the room straight away. The room was clean, large, modern, with a balcony and fast wifi. The service was personal and friendly and breakfast was great on the morning! I would definitely stay here again!
nice new hotel at a reasonable price”
We booked a deluxe room for one night and were very happy with the hotel and the quality of the room. Breakfast was pretty good including even some extra fruits (my friend asked for more). The room has a french big window so nearby palm trees looked pretty good as well as a small river.
An awesome modern, clean, quiet, budget room!”
I stayed at this hotel on my first day in Sri Lanka, waiting for my friend to arrive the following day from the airport. It was a great way to start your trip. Ruwan, the owner made my stay felt like I was home. He was willing to help you with almost anything, all you have to do is ask (but ofcourse sensibly). The room was very clean with modern design for a budget hotel. Nice relaxing view from balcony facing the Dutch canal. Not a problem with late/early check-in at all, although I had to wait 10-15 mins for the room to be cleaned up for the early check-in. Breakfast was awesome, toasts with butter/jam, juice, eggs, tea/coffee, fresh fruit platter... couldn't ask for more. In summary, it's a nice, simple, clean, quiet, budget hotel... I'd definitely come back again.
I wish I could have stayed longer”
the room was clean & spacious. the deluxe room came with a big bed. however it was big enough to put in an additional single bed. so even though you are not traveling as a couple, there is an option to still share the room. or travel in a group of 3. just contact the hotel directly. i loved how summer side was located away from the bustle of the main street & yet only a nice 10min walk to the beach. the walk would take you past homes of locals, a church & a school for the deaf. you would see people setting up shop along the street. from the snack vendors in the morning to people selling fish in the night. there seem to be a few local families who live on this compound. ruwan the proprietor himself just welcomed a new addition to his family less than a month ago. he was a friendly & helpful man. this hotel is value for money & i recommend it. it has sufficient amenities to make this a comfortable temporary home for those visiting negombo.
