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!

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.

I stayed in Serendib Guest House with my wife for 3 weeks starting from end of August 2016. The place is a bit inside (still very near from the beach) but it adds the advantage of noise free and calm atmosphere. The hotel has a nice, well maintained rooms and clean pool to enjoy. The management is run by a...

Serendib is a quiet guesthouse with a small pool. No noise and nice beds are the best of this hotel. We made an error in booking one room with one bed instead of two for our teenage children. The owner fixed that quickly by putting a matrass on the floor. The room is basic, bathroomlock was broken in both rooms...
