The room was nice and calm but not perfectly clean. The staff was friendly (but not particularly the owner) and helped us with some requests. The location was also ok : 5 minutes walking distance from the main road and the beach. To sum up : a good/ok place but a bit pricy (but as all hotels in Negombo).

We did not officially stay here, we were booked here but after visiting the rooms we decided to look elsewhere. I think what you need to understand is that in Sri Lanka and much like South Asia hotel ratings below 5 stars do not mean much. Also, we were mis guided by the high rating here on tripadvisor. It depends...

We stayed here after arriving from the airport. The airport pick up was perfect. The communication via email was very efficient and there was no problem when we had to modify our booking due to flight changes. The bed was comfortable. The air conditioner super effective. The people very very friendly and accommodating. The place is set in a lovely...

Serendib guest house is a nice place to stay. The owner is a very kind lady, who is always helpful. Room was clean and breakfast tasty. What is not that great is location of the villa. Right next to the villa are flats that have been build for victims of tsunami. During day it's OK, but in the evening it's...

We loved Natasha, the owner! She is very kind and intelligent! She served us tea for free every day in the afternoon! She smiles all the time and is always ready to help us! The garden is beautiful! Everything was great!

We spent a night here at the start of a tour. The location is very good for the beach and the main tourist shopping area. The manager Natasha is lovely and gave us a very warm welcome and also a welcome drink and ginger tea at tea time. The building is spacious with good communal area including a kitchen and...

We stayed here one night after arriving on a late flight and before heading down south. Natasha was very responsive and helpful in confirming our arrangements, including two separate airport pickups. The rooms were basic but fine. The outdoors area is pleasant, including a nice pool and gardens. The breakfast was very good. And very economical. Thank you Natasha for...

Conveniently located for restaurants and shops (nice little local baker's just around the corner) and great for airport access and buses south. Sometimes it's the small things that make a guesthouse feel good: pool towels, pots of homemade ginger tea and cookies ... and the ready willingness of the host, Natasha, to sort out difficulties for her guests. Thanks for...

Pleasant and relaxing garden and pool area. Comfortable bed and serve a typical well prepared Sri Lankan breakfast. Quiet location, but close enough to walk to Main Street area with bars and restaurants.
