I didnt stay in the hotel, but location is nice and quiet - not far from the restaurants, shops, bus and train station. I came just for the cooking class, which I heard is great! I was the only "junior cook" at that evening, but I enjoyed time spend in the kitchen with Niranjala Thilakerathne who is preparing cooking classes... More

I really enjoyed my stay at the Sun Top Inn. It's set back slightly from the main road through Ella, so I enjoyed sitting on my top-floor balcony watching folks head to their respective spots up on the hill: kids going to school, police officers heading to police headquarters, and tourists taking a short cut to the picturesque Ella Train...

Attracted by the positive reviews, we booked a room for 3 nights. As mentioned, the family (staff) is really nice. They go out of their way to arrange all your needs. However, our room was very humid and the bed linnen was damp, making it very difficult to sleep well. Secondly during our 3 night stay, the room has never... More

If you are looking for a night's stay at Ella for an affordable rate, this is the place to be at. The owners were very friendly and I had a game of carroms before sleeping off for the night. The location is very good and is located very close to the railway station. There are affordable restaurants and cafe pubs... More

We stayed for 3 night. The room was on the 2nd floor. Clean with mosquito net, could be bigger. The location is very good, away from the main street but still in the centre and close to railway station. Friendly and helpful owners. They gave us a good map for walks. We could also look how to cook rice&curry. We... More

Stayed here for 1 night in early December of 2012. Room was dated and very basic... Breakfast was decent - (chioce of) eggs and toast on a common balcony c/w a partially blocked view of Ella's Gap... Quite friendly and helpful owners - we had limited cash and wanted to move down south to the beach... After some discussions, the... More

Don't normally write bad reviews, and I'd like to stress that the hosts were extremely kind and helpful at all times. However, don't really know how the reviews are so great. The bedding in our room was damp, as was all the others rooms we were shown to - our hair was actually wet after lying there for a few... More

The family running this inn provided an extraordinary service, they went out of their way to make our trip in Sri Lanka an unforgettable experience. The location is great as you are close to most of the attractions and right next to the station. The meals are cooked by the owner's wife and are the best we had in SL.... More

The family that runs the place was sincere, friendly and very helpful. The location is perfect since you are right next to the train and... More
