We didn't get to meet the host as she runs this listing from another country. The onsite housekeeper was very helpful however. She made a fantastic breakfast and was very accommodating. The photos are accurate and the rooms were clean. Unfortunately, those are the only positive points of our stay and there were several really bad aspects too. One room didn't have any usable power outlets, and didn't have a remote for the AC so we had to climb on chairs to try to adjust temperature. There was no WiFi until the 2nd day we were there and even then the signal only reached one of the rooms. During the night the power to the whole home was shut off and not turned on till the next morning around 10am. It also rained that night and the living room flooded which got a lot of our stuff soaking wet. The home's location is really out of the way and you can't walk to anything. The beach is unusable and not even worth visiting. It took over 30min to get to the home from the airport and the address provided by our host was not clear enough even for the local taxi drivers to find it. Getting to the home was a much bigger problem than advertised. Overall....we really wouldn't recommend this listing to anyone other than locals who want to get out of their own home for the night. It is not good for travelers.

Cecily's place is perfect for the amount of money you spend! We had a delicious breakfast and standard accommodation. Also the pool was a real treat especially for the kids and also since the beach was not really that good for swimming (waves and rocks). This place is ideal if you want to stay one or two nights after or before your flight home...

As everywhere in Sri Lanka, expensive for what you get. Strict minimum. Host was responsive despite she's not living in Sri lanka so not much help for taxi for example. Gate Cottage is right behind a road so very noisy since Sri Lanka Buses love their horn !! Plus, a party somewhere until 4 am... But we really appreciated the Housekeeper, she is really nice.

Very disappointed by your review. FROM ENGLAND I tried getting you a tour to other parts of Sri Lanka. Did you ask my house keeper to get you a taxi? No. The bus stops outside the cottage. No other customer has ever complained about the Road, and there is not much I could do about a neighbour's party. Gate cottage was £40.00 for 4 persons B&B plus swimming pool. You are asking for too much!

Thank you for your review. I hope you enjoyed your stay. But surely you could not expect to have the luxury of AC for 4 persons for £35.00. per night. Cecily

We very much enjoyed our stay in the beautiful Gate Cottage. The house had lots of room for our family (two children 8 and 10) with two bedrooms and two baths. Cecily's housekeeper greeted us with water and fruit and was very helpful and attentive. The kitchen was well-equiped and we were able to find supplies at the local shop for breakfast. Everything was clean and attractive and the gardens were very lovely. The only downside is that it is very far outside of Negombo and a trip to the main beach takes about 30-45 minutes and cost about 1200 rupees. The beach is ok for exploring tide pools, but there is a reef with sea urchins so it is not really good for swimming and the sand is very dirty though there is definitely less plastic trash than on the main beach. The swimming pool was fantastic, but it would not be advisable to rent the cottage when the main house is full. Thanks Cecily for sharing your place!

Renuka (the care taker of the place) is a wonderful and warm person. But the house is not as shown in pictures or as expected from the description. It(the gate cottage) is a tiny space in the front corner of another villa(Samaya).the pool is not attached to the gate cottage(it is attached to Samaya).And the passage to the beach is from behind samaya (not a direct view from the gate cottage). Also, all the doors inside the house have no locks(only the main doors have locks). The oven is a broken one,etc.

Having read your review I am sorry your unreasonable expectations were not met. So I re-read my description of Gate cottage. Firstly Gate cottage is exactly as described. Nowhere did I say Gate cottage has its own private pool, nowhere did I say it had a beach view. Gate cottage front door is 30 seconds walk to the surf. As to your complaint about the oven, I enclose a quotation from my house keeper " Dear Madom, The guest who was in Gate cotage asked a micro awan when she was here. but i said we have no micro awan and i said about the electric awan. then she did not want to have it. Nowhere in my description did I say Gate's cottage had a microwave oven. It has an electric oven which works. I think your expected a lot for £36.00. Cecily
