We stayed 2 nights in Zion View and found it functional and clean with really great views. Although the views were amazing there was a lot of noise from the road, the amount of building and development in Ella makes it difficult to escape from the noise. Food was great but the restaurant felt quite functional and a little soul-less.... More

We came to Zion View since we've heard such high recommendations on Sena and his trip planning. The guesthouse is really good. Very clean and functions on high standards. Service was amazing and the views are even better. But when we asked for Sena's help we were disappointed- He was all over the place, asked us to book hotels ourselves... More

We stayed here 2 nights - unbeatable view from room and dining area. Good host who clearly was working very hard to create a great hotel, good service. Food was very good- breakfast excellent. Had laundry done here too. The only real downside was a poor mattress. Also access is only via steep steps- luckily they carried our heavy cases.... More

we were picked up by the hotels driver, he was helpful and went out of his way to take us to interesting waterfalls en route. The views from the hotel are stunning. The rooms are scrupulously clean and airy, each has its own hammock! The veranda is lovely. We only ate lunch and thought it was ok, nothing special though... More

This was by far one of the most amazing places my mum and I have ever stayed in. Besides the food and views, the staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and it was so close on foot to Little Adam's Peak, Ella Rock, and town. Would love to stay here again next time I'm in SL.

Really great little hotel. Rooms are brilliant, each with a private balcony and hammock with the most spectacular view of Ella Gap and a huge waterfall. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to help us even though there was local landslides over the Christmas period. Sena, the owner organised entertainment for Christmas Day, food... More
