Serendib Guest House
Ranked #8 of 269 Negombo B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 December 2016

After a long and hard journey, we have a pleasant rest in the house, which is beautifully decorated with a beautiful garden with a swimming pool. The location is also very suitable for families. The pool is just the right size and clean.
Serendib G. H. is near the sea and close walking distance to nice restaurants, shops and a wellness center.
The breakfasts were great. The staff also. Many things about Sri Lanka we learned from them. We hired a van from them and their man took us almost to the north Sri Lanka and back. If you go to Sri Lanka you must select Serendib Guest House.

Room Tip: All rooms are OK.

Serendib Guest house is located one street back from the main beach road. It is very close walking distance to nice restaurants, supermarket and ATM. As arranged, i was met by Prabeep at Colombo train station and taken back to the guest house. My room was big and the aircon worked really well and it is needed as it is humid. The swimming pool area is very well maintained and being able to relax there in the peace and quiet is very enjoyable. Natasha is a great hostess who will assist you where ever she can.

The Guesthouse organised me a city tour with Lucky Tuk Tuk. Lakmal (Lucky) is more than a tuk tuk driver- he is also a great guide who can show you all the sights in Negombo. I also went on an amazing boat cruise around the harbour and lagoon with him and he took me to the airport at 1am. He is a very friendly, reliable and helpful guy!

We stayed here for our first two nights, a lovely place the gut used to the Sri Lanka climate and culture.

As agreed they arranged an airport pickup what is really convenient! Serendib has a nice pool, bike for use to go to the beach and/or city when you do not want to walk, and the offer massages.

The ATM is on walking distance so do not get your money on the airport! Serendib has as well a tuctuc as a car with which they can bring you everywhere even to the next destination.

The breakfast the super and a western/Sri Lankan combination.
we like to eat in the guesthouse, so it was a pity they do not offer this, this would be the 5th star!

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 wonderful, highly cooperative, graceful & friendly lady Natasa & a very cooperative guy Pradeep. These guys alongwith 2 other staff members gave us immunities like a family. Natasa cooks herself a very tasty and huge breakfast. She provides complimentary ginger tea in evening too. You can use bicycle to go anywhere. As a matter of fact, this place is the best place to stay I found in my 2 tours in Sri Lanka. This place is highly recommended for short / long tour.

Room Tip: spacious A/C room, clean floors, hygienic bathrooms

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 and bathroom had had it's best time. There is a fridge at your disposal. Outside is not much light and place to sit. Owner and staff are nice.
It's actualy located at the wrong side of Negombo with not much restaurants around.
better find something near Lewis place.
price/quality is average for Sri Lanka
