Sachal Mir's Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #77 of 269 Negombo B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Sachil Masie (sp) run a very informal and friendly hostel which is excellent value for money. No where else have we stayed so generously offered free beer and food. The Cabin we stayed in was cute and we really enjoyed our stay here. The location was great to get into Negombo and all the people we met were helpful and chatting.
The only negative aspect was on our return to Negombo. The hostel was full so we ended up in a overspill B&B down the road. This place, (Villa Marina) was not the cleanest and would not really recommend.

Great place to stay. Me and my friend stayed here as we needed a place to stay after our late arrival at Colombo airport. The place is conveniently close; a quick taxi ride gets you there.
The double room was clean and simple, same for the bathroom. Warm water was available, which is not a trivial thing in Sri Lanka.
The next morning a nice breakfast with fresh fruit, toast, and eggs was served. The breakfast was included in the price. Checking out a little after noon was no problem. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I can definitely recommend the place!

we arrived quite late ... we did call them but i didn't leave my number. the guy in reception gave us a very clear instruction to get there from Colombo Fort by bus ... when we arrived they were having dinner and Sachal rushed went out to buy more food for us, he's a very thoughtful person. Arack is the next menu to blow us away after the long trip from Galle. Room is nicely arranged to fill our basic needs up, the bathroom is big enough to stretch out after a good night sleep. breakfast is incredible ... all guests were gather in the dining room, extra space in the back garden is available ... we talked, laughed, joked while Sachal and Masi preparing our food

Arriving at Colombo at 3:50am, after roughly 16 hours of travel is quite a feat within itself. We randomly picked Sachal Mir based on its offer of a late check out (3:30pm), knowing we would need the sleep. We stayed another night because of the incredible and genuine hospitality. Sachal and his staff of friends are some of the loveliest and most welcoming people I have met on my journey. The house was clean and inviting, the service impeccable, we really felt like guests in their home, friends even. Definitely plan to visit Sachal before my flight out.

We stayed here upon arriving in negombo and were blown away by the friendly welcome we had on arrival. The rooms were clean, comfortable & the offer of a drink was much appreciated after a long journey!

The breakfasts are great, especially as they are included in the price! We were given great advice on where to visit & therefore added a few places into our trip which were amongst the highlights. We didn't hesitate in revisiting again for our last night!

Everyone is so friendly & welcoming I wouldn't hesitate in recommending sachal's to anyone visiting Sri Lanka!

There is just no better place to be on our planet. When you sit in the garden under the trees with a freshly brewed cup of tea you have arrived. And then you will forget about all your plans to go to fish market or kandy, just relaxing and enjoying one warm day after another in this extraordinary guest house. I highly recommend visiting this place and if you just plan a stay of a half a night after you have landed, this will be truly your own fault!
