Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 September 2017

Just had a chance to stay in Serendib Guest House again. Very recently I came to know that the wonderful and extremely courteous lady manageress, Natasha of Serendib Guest House has now been cornered by a native administrator Mr. Pradeep. So guys make sure you stay in the portion of the guest house which is being under the administration by that lady. Wish you guys great holidays ;)

Room Tip: Choose the portion under administration of the lady manageress

Lovely place. We stayed here for 2 nights before leaving SL and found ourselves rejuvenated when departing.

The garden in itself - pool, deckchairs, patios are fantastic - so relaxing

Cimmon areas are comfy, breakfast is great. Natasha is the most warm and welcoming owner we've had the pleasure of meeting here. Very helpful

Rooms are large, bathroom also. 5 min walk to the beach

Lady the dog was a bonus!

Originally we planned to spend one night somewhere close to the Negombo airport to kick off to a journey mainly by train and buses. When our friends recommended Serendib Guest House, we changed our plans quite a bit. We ended up staying for two nights. Natasha and Pradeep organized activities for us around Negombo. Most importantly, they organized us a driver and a van for twelve days. This was really a good and efficient way to explore Sri Lanka. Our driver Mr. Prasanna was superb and we cordially recommend him. He was an excellent, vigilant driver. We felt really safe. In addition, he was also a guide and a companion.
Our stay at Serendib Guest house was nice, the best breakfast, nice garden, clean spacious rooms. The house is close to restaurants, stores, but still in a very quiet surroundings.
