The room was nice and big, clean and has a great view from the balcony. Staff is very welcoming. It is located right on Ella main road, near all the restaurants and shops. There is wi-fi in the lobby and it works well. Breakfast included, you can ask for Sri Lankan breakfast if you want.

Stayed here for 3 nights after our original place fell through on booking.com. The staff are top blokes - very friendly and willing to help/meet any request. Bit of a steep hill to get to the hotel, but if you're put off by that you shouldn't be in Ella. Location is right in the middle of the main drag. Rooms... More

Huge spacious rooms with a large bathroom. Warm shower. Big comfy beds with crisp sheets. Good wifi in common area. Nice view from all rooms. Right on the Main Street with a range of choice of eating and drinking places with a steep driveway to hotel. I would recommend to stay here.

Each room has a balcony with a good view. Hotel is located at the centre of Ella town where there are many restaurants. The hotel staff... More

Hotel is big but obviously old. Shower heater is not working well. We had to endure the cold shower at 5am. Upon check-in, there is no electricity. We didn't know that we need to request electricity to use it as they can only turn on the generator at 6pm. Wifi is working but only in the resto. Room has a... More

A great place, just 100 meters of the buzzling main street in Ella. This hotel offers great comfortable rooms for a decent price. This hotel is cheaper than some guesthouses, but offers better rooms and service. I definitely recommend this hotel to others. It offers more for less and the staff is very friendly and helpful!
