Popped into here for breakfast. A wide range of Sri Lankan curry on the buffet but I didn't fancy it. There was no one else in there and I just had a fruit plate and a bottle of water which was fine. Staff were good and it was reasonably priced. No wifi.

I can only speak for the restaurant but we were very satisfied here. We had rice&curry for both breakfast and lunch here (brkfst 100 rps., lnch 150 rps.) in a buffet and it was fresh and tasty. More spicy than usual though.

Really quiet release. A good place to take a vacation in Negombo. Inexpensive. Too may want to use as a private beach. Do not forget to tell about the good food. Food was very delicious. High Recommended...........!

I think the reception and eating area has been upgraded since people last uploaded photos of it because it was a lot more fresh now than in some pictures. The rooms were average for that price and it has a good location, close to the airport and to negombo city and the beach. Super friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfast,...

The rooms are tiny, Bathroom dirty. The rooms stink. No wifi in room. Breakfast was toasted bread with butter or jam and tea. No other options for breakfast. Bad location. Only good thing is the beach. however it is not a 'private' beach as claimed. There are other cheaper and better options. Rooms were damp and Stunk.

We spent 1 night there. The ad says there is high speed wifi, and that's nit true. There isn't wifi in the rooms, just in the reception. The rooms could be more clean. The beach is very dirty, but nice views from there. The food was delicious! We stayed in November and there were a lot of mosquitos.

Great place. Very close to the airport. Amazing Crew and manager, Very Helpful and warm hospitality. Excellent breakfast and a very peaceful atmosphere. Walking distance to Restaurants,Pubs and city. Clean beach. The rooms could be upgraded more. But reasonable for the price.

Very bad don't book this hotel again. Room is very poor and bad smell also. Bathroom Is like a public toilet. I never recommend this hotel for travellers. No security no room service no wifi. Very poor breakfast also. Without mosquito coils you can't sleep. So if you book this hotel bring one mosquito coil

We stayed two times in this hotel each time for one night. First stay was ok only had to change rooms as ac was not working. Second stay when we were returning from srilanka was bad. No hot water, makeshift light in the bathroom. We saw people emptying trash right in front of us on the beach. The hotel staff...
