Thank goodness we weren’t the bad boy here. There’s a lot of steep stairs down to reception, then a Jacob’s ladder to our room, No. 1. Reception check in was quick and simple and we were soon shown to our room. It seemed a never ending narrow stairway with various rooms on either side. We had a nice outside private... More

Ella The Mountains Heaven Hotel Unbelievable situated hotel. On the top of the hill with a heavenly view over the Ella Gap with the tea plantations. Don’t miss the sunset. It’s a moment you remember the rest of your life. Breakfast and dinner is okay. If you drive your own car, be aware that the road in Ella to the... More

What an experience, we had a huge room, beautifully furnished, but it was the views that were completely wow. It proves hotel stars, sometimes just don't matter. This is a small boutique hotel with a simple restaurant, who provide a memorable experience, We stayed 2 nights and did the 2 big walks direct from the hotel, but I think 3... More

We only stayed here for one night, but enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it without hesitation. Clean rooms, friendly staff, unbelievable view. Easy 5 minute walk down to the main street and just 10 minute walk from the train station. Try to get one of the two rooms that are on the garden floor....they are so much nicer than having... More

Wow! Such stunning views, every bit as good as the official photo’s and maybe better! Our room was clean, beds were comfortable and there was a good shower (although the full window wall in the bathroom is a little strange but not a problem as curtains can be drawn across it). Our room (just under the dining area), had a... More

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in February. They made excellent Sri Lankan food, the staff in the hotel were friendly and attentive. The real selling point of this hotel are the stunning views. Rooms were spacious but a little 'tired' and access to the hotel us via a steep road, tuk tuk is definitely needed to... More

As others have said the view from this hotel is stunning, but there's more than to it than that. Our room was spacious light and very comfortable.We went deluxe and I think it was worth it. the menu in the restaurant was limited but the food was very well prepared. The staff were both efficient and delightful. Highly recommended!

Never stayed at a hotel with a view like this, simply stunning. Lovely modern spacious room, can even look at the view from the bathroom as it has a glass wall. Good food and as we have come to expect in Sri Lanka lovely polite and friendly staff. Will be going back.

Chosen due to TripAdvisor reviews of allocated hotel and of this. An 8 room delight, out of town with a view to die for straight down the gorge. Balconies and windows to maximise it. Very quiet, good food albeit not a huge menu but would recommend this place to one and all!

I stayed here before their recent renovation which was about a year ago. The property looks beautiful now however when i went there, although it was simple, the view was absolutely amazing and I really thought the service was very good as well. Yes its not a high end property so the service staff is mainly locals from the area... More
