Our original booking was for only 2 days but we extended our stay since this is such a nice place. We had a triple room with a cot as well which was a bit of a tight squeeze but since all the rooms come with a large balcony furnished with a hammock, table and chairs, the size of the room... More

The Zion view is a wonderful place to stay, welcoming owners, stunning views and wonderful food. The owners even surprised our child who turned six years with a birthday party, including a cake they drove 15 km to fetch at the bakery. Would definitely stay there again.

Excellent guesthouse in Ella. A little difficult to find - but worth it. Fantastic, clean rooms. Beautifully decorated. Magnificient view of the surreounding mountains. Really helpful staff. Wi Fi in Cafe. Evening buffet was best Sri Lankan curry we had. Only improvement would suggest some blinds for little windows in bathroom. Top choice.

The rooms are quite basic but have what you need because most of the time you are outdoors enjoying the view from the balconies. Great food and great service make this the best place to stay in Ella. We also are at the Chill Lounge, good but the food wasn't a patch on rice and curry at Zion view. The... More

We love it! The owner goes to great lengths to run this place well. His staff are trained and courteous without being in your face. If you are travelling with a family ask about the 3 bedroom apartment. The view is beautiful the rooms are clean and spacious ,the hot water is plentiful and welcomed after climbing Ella rock. If...

Amazing views and a very helfpful owner made our 4 night stay very relaxing. Rooms are clean and comfortable but nowt special. But sitting in your hammock on your own private balcony with THAT VIEW is just awesome! They will collect and drop you at the station, do your washing, deliver drinks to your room all night, find a guide... More

We loved Ella so much the first time in 2014 that we went back and stayed again at Zion View. Sena and his staff are helpful and the food is good. The view, of course, is stunning. We could sit and look at it for hours but there is so much to explore in the area and in the town.... More

After two weeks trekking around Sri Lanka our family was wonderfully surprised as we walked onto the deck at Zion View. The view was sensational. A perfect place to relax. We hiked up Little Adams peak with our kids ( aged 9,11,13,15,16) and it was about the right difficulty for the younger ones. We also got up early (5am) and... More

Awesome venue, away from the madding crowds on the main strip but unfortunately the road below does intrude every now and then. If in the area, this is a must. the food is also good as well as sufficient and a beer looking down the valley, never to be sneezed at. Enjoy.

We spend three days in Ella hiking and relaxing. Zion view is a great location from which to visit the surrounding, go hiking or relax in a bar in Ella. The rooms are good size but most importantly is the view. Just lay in your hammock and look at the waterfall and ella rock. Perfection
