Very accomodating personnel, spacious room, basic bathroom, average dining area, close rooms for travelling families, close to the airport for easy transportation, great for a one night stop after the long flight from Australia

This is a nice guesthouse near the beach. The owner is helping with questions and the rooms are fine. I took room with a fan no AC, so it was not the most delightful room but it matched the expectations. Nice breakfast for 500 rs.

Stayed at Ocean View just over 2 years ago for over a week and returned with my partner and mum to find it's just as I remember. The hotel is a comfortable, safe environment right across from a pathway to the beach. The owner and staff are friendly and helpful and my stay both times have been such a breeze!...

It's a simple, really proper guest house near the Colombo/Negombo airport. The rooms are big, the bed is comfortable, the shower was the best of all we experienced in Sri Lanka and the wifi works perfectly. Additionally the rooms have a balcony, a TV, a fan and a mosquito net. The staff members are extremely friendly and one person always...

Chose this place over others based on the reviews and wasn’t disappointed. This beach is about 50 metres across the road down a lane. If you need to see the water, this is not the place for you. When we arrived, we were immediately taken to our room (10) on the 3rd floor (no elevator). The room had two singles...
