My girlfriend and I stayed here before heading to the airport for our flight out of Sri Lanka. We didn't out much thought into Negombo but we were so happy with this little place. The room was massive and the staff couldn't do anything more to help us out. They arranged an airport transfer too, which was brilliant. I wouldn't... More

We had the privilege of staying 7 nights in Sri Lanka and we stayed in 7 different hotels there. This was by far the most expensive one but it was definitely not worth the price! It was nice to be close to the airport since our flight arrived very late so the nice hosts were waiting up for us when... More

Although it has only 7 rooms, the rooms are spacious. The open-air kitchen is unique and the surrounding well maintained. Its location is quite central - a short drive to the airport and walking distance to the beach as well as the fresh sea food market by the beach. It also has a lounge show casing antiques equipments illustrating their... More

We stayed here on our last night before the flight home. Not booking online, we turned up at the gate after getting off the train and we were accomodated without any trouble at all and offered a discount. The room was lovely, well decorated and clean.

Well managed well organized guesthouse. The manager is very helpful (flights, taxi, touktouk). It is not a fancy beachfront hotel and it is a little noisy (road, train), but in very good shape, clean with a garden nice to have breakfast. A good place before or after the airport which is at 15 / 20 ' by taxi

We decided to spend two nights here at the end of our holiday. Compared to many places near the airport this was relatively good value (although I think we benefitted from a discount at the time). The hotel is very comfortable, rooms very clean with all mod cons. Lovely four poster bed in our room. We overlooked the back garden... More

Whilst we were only at the lodge for 12hours, I cannot see how this property rated so highly. The rooms have all conveniences, but are nothing special for the fee. The hard beds and pillows offered an uncomfortable sleep and the noise from the road was inconvenient. As we left for the airport before breakfast was served we were promised... More

Lucky to pick lodge 19 as our first stay in Sri Lanka. The guesthouse is located in a quiet road, near the town's center, near the bus station, and near the fish market. It is clean, tastefully decorated, especially the shower is very comfortable and better than most guesthouse I've stayed. We did't pick the seaside guesthouse, and it turned... More
