We had booked online for a night's stay here along with an airport pickup service. Our flight was scheduled to reach at 2am at Colombo airport, and the driver was waiting with our names written on his banner. After almost an hour's drive we were checked into a homestay (some XYZ apartments) and there was none called Sachal Mir. Next... More

I have just spent a month in Sri Lanka and ended up spending five of those days here. I only planned to spend about two but the owners are quite simply the best people I met in Sri Lanka. They looked after me, they allowed me to leave some of my clothes whilst I was travelling, they cooked the best... More

The Sachal Mir's is a lovely and peaceful place to rest at after or before a long flight. The charming family will greet you as a member of their family and you really don't want to leave. The place is right by the lagoon far from the noice in Negombo town. Rooms are very clean and have got what you... More

The place it's self was ok, the room had it's own shower and air conditioning (though it leaked water my bed through out the night) and breakfast was nice, you eat it sat outside in the garden. What put us off as two young girls traveling alone was the pushiness of the staff, we had arranged a transfer with them... More

We stayed a night in a clean, spacious room. However, the one overhead fan did not cool us very much, and we sweated throughout the hot May night, unable to sleep much. It is a pity, as the place was away from the city centre, and set in lovely rural surroundings, facing a bay, which made taking breakfast made by... More

Great price for a guesthouse on the lagoon , very helpful and friendly staff , rooms are clean and very comfortable , mozzie nets are big enough to cover beds comfortably and towels are provided. The breakfast which was included in the price was excellent and the view over the lagoon from the dining area is suburb. Highly recommended

This is a very nice place, close to the airport and a great view of the Negombo Lagoon. We stayed one night after our flight into Sri Lanka, due to it's close location to the airport. The rooms are very clean and roomy. A bit far from the beach, but only just a tuktuk ride away. Breakfast and dinner are... More

The B&B is located on the Negombo lagoon which beautiful views. Booked this one as I was arriving in Colombo by a late night flight. I regret I did not book it for more than a day as I had to leave for Kandy. The staff was helpful even though we landed up at 3.30am The double rooms are clean... More

I was a little disappointed in this B&B after the excellent references that other reviewers had given it. Room was tidy and clean but no air conditioning despite that I paid extra for this. Difficult to sleep after a long flight in the heat. Wireless internet also not working while I was guest. My ipad connected but service so slow... More
