Adequate o/n stay close to airport
Helpful staff, close to airport, close to restaurants
Room was very basic, very hot (beg April) and there were a lot of mosquitos. However, we were given A/C though we had not booked an A/C room. The owner provided an early breakfast as we had an early flight, organised a taxi and was generally very accomodating

best value guesthouse
Valuable travel info from owner, good location, great food included in price
Best budget place to stay close to Colombo airport. Welcoming small guesthouse. Great place to meet other travellers and to arrange excursions and travel to airport. Busy market to visit in Negombo town. Beach close to hotel.

The best welcome ever
So friendly
Such a welcoming place to stay in Sri Lanka. The ownercould not have been more helpful. We felt very at home there. The room was very clean, the breakfast excellent, and there was plenty of hot water!

Unexpected extra's
Friendly staff
Sachal Mir is just what it is: A guesthouse with basic facilities, clean, nice breakfast. Rates are too high, but that goes for ALL accommodations in the Negombo/Colombo area. Considering this Sachal Mir is a good choice in the budget category. Staff is very helpful. Great extra's: Free beer and mineral water.

Generous to a fault.
Exceptionally clean, uncommonly friendly, welcoming environment.
Upon arriving I was greeted with a volley of smiles and a glass of orange cordial. My room was immaculate, the cleanest I had seen in a month. As it was late and I hadn't eaten, I was invited to share dinner with the staff which the owner prepared with great skill. The people were all very wonderful and interesting, and we stayed up long in to the night talking. I promise you, you will rarely stay at a B&B of this quality, the kindness and generosity shown by the owner towards guests is far beyond anything I have experienced before.

Environment condusive to interact with other guests. Close to airport
Owner and staff went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable. Breakfast freshly prepared in the morning. Provided tea at other times. Near the beach. Quiet and peaceful.
