Norfolk Villa is located jut 2-3 km from the Bandarnaike International Airport. It’s a really convenient option if you are landing late or have an early morning flight. It’s a beautifully done up guest house with a decent sized lawn on the side. Its located in a residential neighborhood which has very large size row houses, some of which are magnificently made. The owner Mr Ilyas is a genteel Sri Lankan native whose family is now settled in UK, so he shuffles between the 2 countries. He strikes a great conversation if you happen to catch him during your stay. He is ably assisted by a ever-smiling housekeeper. The bungalow is spacious since it was made for his personal use as his residence. Its also tastefully appointed by his wife. One can see the effort put in choosing each artifact. Their highest category room is fairly large and has a big-sized stylishly done up washroom. I would have definitely that one had I seen it earlier. It’s worth the upgrade. PS – I had left my backpack by mistake. Mr Ilyas was most helpful. Kept it in safe custody till I picked it up on my way back to the airport.…
This small hotel, situated in a quiet, leafy suburb, among green gardens and old, colonial style villas, was a pleasant surprise: Old world charm, a "family hotel" atmosphere - and, above all, a very friendly and attentive staff, always on the alert. We warmly recommend it!
We have one night here, before we get our plane back home to Denmark. The room was big, clean and comfortable. The food was great. The welcoming was perfect. We got a cold wet cloth in the heat and a cold glass of soft soda. I can recommend.
Came here on a change of mind from previous booking. Took some finding but it was worth it. The villa is very large, in the lion city estate. Very quiet. Outside it looks a bit tired. as did the bathroom but everything worked OK. The evening meal we had was Ok. The early morning transfer into the airport only took 10 minutes.
our stay at norfolk airport villa was spectacular, owner took good care of us and also planned tour for us. we stayed in hotel for 1 month but never felt like away from home. we liked the property so much and will be looking forward to visit again next year.
