Pros: Very friendly and helpful. Will definitely come again, when I need to stay close too the airport.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: When I arrived I received an upgrade and a discount - so instead of paying 61 US $ I paid only 42. Due to the current situation of dwindling numbers of tourists the owner was so kind to give me a discount because I booked before April when the prices were still higher. At the moment the prices are much lower and he didn´t want to take advantage of me. The room was very comfortable and the family very friendly. I have nothing to complain about. They feel the effect of the incident in April very much and they hope that the tourists win back the trust to stay safely in Colombo and Negombo. I hope for them that the situation will improve soon!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Each and every pin point was perfect. From point of pick up till the drop off - at the airport.
Cons: For me, it was a last minute plan but it was an exceptional experience. No black points
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The landlord sent the clear information to me before stayed. When I arrived, he provided the bigger room than that I booked to me and hoped I felt more comfortable. Besides, since I had an early flight, I booked the pick up service to make sure I can arrive at the airport on time safely. I was really thankful I chose the house for my last day stay during the trip.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very nice and friendly owners, who have fulfilled every wish. The breakfast was excellent. The accommodation is highly recommended, we will definitely come back to this place.

Pros: The stay at Henderson Residence was perfect! Really nice and clean room! Very nice breakfast with local food! The host picked me up from the airport in the middle of the night and was really patient. The next morning he gave us many recommendations for our tour and did a day trip to Anuhardhapura and Nilaveli. The trip was amazing he showed us many places and we learned a lot about the Buddhism. Afterwards he drove us all the way to the east coast to the beach and even did 3 stops at different hotels to find the fitting one for our needs. Can highly recommend this place and the tours!
Excellent 9.6
Pros: We (my family of 4) stayed at Henderson Airport Residence homestay in Negombo a few days ago. We arrived late at the airport, and they were waiting for us as in the airport as we had pre arranged a pickup with them. It was a short drive to their home stay. After a quick welcome drink, they showed us to our room, which was excellent. Cool, clean and comfortable. Plenty of bottled water. The private bathroom was extremely clean with a good shower, and a nice touch of extra toiletries. Breakfast the next day was fabulous, a lovely combination of local and western offerings, even home-baked bread. The family were very welcoming and friendly. We headed off on our travels around Sri Lanka refreshed after a good night’s rest. It was great value for money. We felt safe staying in Negombo and would stay at Henderson Airport Residence homestay again.
Cons: Nothing.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Perfect place to stay when we got in on a late flight with our two children. They arranged airport pick up for us. Provided excellent communication prior, during and after our stay. They also arranged a driver for our trip the next day. The breakfast was amazing and the couple running it we're delightful. We would definitely stay here again.
Cons: Nothing

Pros: Close to the airport. After landing around mid-night we were able to reach the hotel in time for a good night sleep. After a good shower and an excellent traditional breakfast, we were fresh and ready by 9:00 am for our trip to Jaffna. Rooms are vast, clean and comfortable; the host couple were very welcoming and helpful - made us feel at home.
Cons: Cannot think of any. All good.

Cons: Higher price than other hotels in the area, but you get what you pay for.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: They wara always calling us and checking the arrival. 24 hrs they are there for you. Just 20minutes away from the airport
Excellent 10.0
Pros: I had booked this room for a friend and their siblings because I had a room at the same time in the same hostel. These are only very late (after 24 clock) at the hostel. Nevertheless, they were well received, and they could relate to a good, beautiful, furnished room. They were only there for one night as they had to move on the next day. So you had a good breakfast, but then it was off to the airport. Thus, they can not say much about the hostel because they were there for a very short time, but they said that the room was good (I only have ask them about the room - because the other things I have realise by myself that it was good). But at breakfast I noticed: everything else in the hostel was good for them in this short time. I would definitely book this hostel again for acquaintances of me, or recommend this to acquaintances. About my feedback: I have write this feedback for my friends - so good how I can. But I think they would write nearly the same. Because the question how the bed was: They have telling the room was good. They have telling notthing about the bed - so I think this was good also - so I have give a good feedback about this also.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The cleanest homestay I've ever seen in Sri Lanka! Super nice host and super comfortable stay. Drop to the airport possible. About 15mins away from the beach.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: New and clean home stay. Beautiful house. Very good service by the owners. Relaxing and refreshing place to stay for example before or after flight, it was only 20 minute to airport by car. I would stay there again.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Everything’s clean. Bed super comfy. Very few mosquitos outside and none in the room. Pool is beautiful. Great mosquito net. Staff are very eager to please which is nice
Cons: I paid 3,500 for a massage through the hotel. Being expensive I expected a decent massage. It was the worst! No offer of a refund. The manager insisted I have some food, I wasn’t really hungry but it seemed like it was his way of apologising so I agreed to a sandwich - 2 days later I realise I’m being charged $5 for that sandwich

Good 6.3
Pros: I like that was clean. The staff booked a car for me for airport.
Cons: The pictures are far from reality. I have booked this place before my departure for airport. My intention was to have a quite stay and rest before departure. As i read in comments is a very quite place. The room was clean but very bad smell of humidity, very simple as a hospital room. Ac was doing a very bad noise and the people outside the door was talking so loud that i cant sleep at all. I have complained this but still didn't changed. The next building was doing work on the building and again another noise. I couldn't sleep at all. I left with a big headache. For the next travelers, please post real reviews. For the owner : Please make rules to be a quite stay for everyone. This is a transit stay so people come to have rest before or after departures.

Pros: The host was really sweet and she even arranged us a small breakfast on the go very early morning.
Cons: It was just a transit stay only for a few hours. We just wanted to freshen up and sleep for 2-3 hours and leave very early in the morning. But unfortunately, we weren't able to either freshen up or sleep because the room was full of mosquitoes and even it has a lizard as well. The washroom also has a lizard and with no amenities like soap or dustbin.

Pros: - The owner/staff were lovely and very friendly. They were very accommodating and willing to help - Close (ish) to the airport, so it’s good if you just need somewhere quick to stay the night before exploring the next day - Very cheap - Breakfast included
Cons: - It’s quite far from anything. No restaurants or cafes near by and around a 15 minute walk to any shops or anything for food, which isn’t ideal after a long journey - The room wasn’t overly clean, particularly the bathroom - The room had no windows, with no natural lightening which made it seem claustrophobic and dark - Mosquito net had holes in - The bathroom was tiny with the cold shower going over the toilet - Room was V hot, with no way to get air in the room - Overall not much is in walking distance from anything so would only stay if you got there late and needed to leave early to and from the airport

Pros: It was my second time to choose Daffon Villa. Each time they impressed me so much. The whole family is really nice, they always manage to help you as long as you are in need. Thats why I consider Daffon as my top priority whenever I visit Sri Lanka. they were really nice. I gonna to miss you all and will be there again when I have a chance.
Cons: NOTHING

Pros: Really great location for the night before the airport. You can book a tuk tuk via the reception but note that the tuk tuk can't go all the way to the airport, so you have to take a shuttle bus after. So allow extra time. I booked a bed and ended up having the room to myself as there was not many people. So really great value. The bathroom is great also. The lockers come with plugs inside which is really good too
Cons: Could be cleaner and breakfast could be improved.
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Very close to the airport and staff welcomes at every hour of the night. I didn't stay long in there, just one night to rest. So this place is not wonderful but it does the job. Good wifi too.
Good 7.5
Pros: I only stayed here for one night for the purpose of catching a flight early the next morning and it was great for this. Clean room and air conditioned!
Cons: I asked for an airport transfer which arrived on time, but unfortunately it was a tuktuk which meant he couldn't take me into the actual airport which was disappointing when you are a solo female traveller and have to walk in the heat with your suitcase!

Pros: It’s a very good hostel, nice kitchen, good breakfast, clean beds and chill common area. Hot water in the shower. Free coffee and tea The staff is very friendly. Easy to get transport to airport
Cons: The (woman) showers and toilets are a bit disappointing. Not super clean and the pressure of the water from the shower is a bit weak. Also the tabs in the bathroom barely give water.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Literally perfect for one or two nights after or before your flight. Super close to the airport, staff is friendly and willing to help with everything. They'll book a tuktuk to the airport for you for whatever time. Clean, very well equipped, even with kitchen and fridge! And quite unusual accommodation which I really liked ;)

Pros: The staff was very friendly and the owner offered to drop us off to the airport free of charge.
Cons: N/A
Okay 5.0
Pros: The room we had was clean and had a nice big comfortable bed. We had booked a basic room, and this had no window, but other than this it was ok.
Cons: The service. Be aware that although this property claims to be an airport hotel, the only thing that makes it this is that it’s 1km from the airport. We arrived at 3pm, which we thought would be fine since checkin is anytime from 2pm. There was no one there so check us in at all.. we ended up having to call the number so that someone would come and waited nearly an hour! Not great considering they claim 24 hour reception. They also claim to accept card payment. They don’t, which is pretty silly for an airport hotel where people are arriving & leaving the country, so possibly don’t have local cash. We were also offered an airport drop, which we did get, but in a tuk tuk, which due to new security measures, cannot drive into the airport. We had to walk the 10-15 min walk in, which was okay for us as backpackers, but may be a problem for travellers with a lot of luggage!
Mediocre 3.3
Pros: Overcharged; we booked last minutes due to flight schedule. it is mentioned transport to Airport free, but not true. we arranged our transport. breakfast not available
Good 7.1
Pros: Free transport to airport. Close to the airport, so no need to leave very early.
Cons: Spider web in the bathroom. Hotel manager was sleeping on the couch in the lobby when we were to leave and we had to wake him up. The AC was a little troubling and the remote control did not work 100%.
Good 7.9
Pros: the Otha Shy Airport Transit Hotel is extremely convenient for travellers that have to catch a plane in the morning and are looking for an alternative to Negombo for spending the night before. The airport is five minutes away and in our case the manager gave us a free lift (airport drop was included in the room price). the location doesn't offer much options for eating, but we had a decent dinner at 10 minutes walking,
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Very accessible to the airport and the prices are budget-friendly :)
Cons: Everything was nice, although it would have been useful to pay by bank card ; cash only :)
Excellent 8.3
Pros: Good location for a short night after our flight. The room was clean and the airco worked nicely. The breakfest was not very special, but okay.
Mediocre 2.5
Pros: Clean, comfortable beds, hot shower
Cons: Asked the night before for our lift to the airport at 11.30am. 11.45 and still no driver and no staff to be found. Ended up having to hail a couple of tuk tuks which wasn’t easy with 3 of us and 3 big suitcases. Don’t stay if doing it for the free transfer.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: I arrived at 4 in the morning and Fernando the owner was kind enough to send a tuktuk free of charge to the hotel, which is very close to the airport. When I arrived check-in was easy and the room was clean and comfy. Fernando and his wife are both very nice people to have tea and a chat with. They also organised to get me to the bus the next day and there was no rush with check out. There is a nice restaurant just a 3 minute walk away. It's very good value for money and so close to the airport and lovely people! I would stay there again!
