Though more expensive than the average hotel in Sri Lanka this hotel commands an amazing location overlooking Ella Gap with your own private hammock on the balcony and comfortable room. The restaurant serves pretty average food but is a joy to dine and take in the wonderful views. Tours can be organised from the hotel and the proprietor is always... More

This place is one of many hotels with a great view of Ella Gap. Service was fine the food OK. It just lacked something. Everywhere is finished in solid grey concrete. It was very wet when we visited which made the very steep steps dangerous. The Ayurveda therapy room was something to behold. After going down the steep steps to... More

We booked for 2 nights but ended up staying 4 as we so much enjoyed Ella and Zion View. Amazing views from the hotel, excellent service and food. We had the apartment right at the entrance which was very private and with perfect views. Nice bathroom with hot water (you need it as it gets chilly in Ella), fridge with... More

Loved this place -a short, steep, tuk tuk ride up the hill is all part of the experience! Sena was very friendly and helpful and we wanted to take his lovely German Shepherd home with us! Room felt a bit on the small side with a double and a single bed in it -could have done without the single. And... More

We are finishing our 3rd night here (planned to stay 2 but extended) and our family has loved this stay. The views are awesome and you enjoy both clear daytime mountain as well as watch the fog roll in late afternoon. It's really amazing because then the fog leaves and it's clear again. You are a short yet steep walk... More

I don't think I have ever stayed in a hotel or guest house with better views from my room- when we walked into the room we just could not believe it! Our room was basic and small but clean and comfortable. We had mosquito nets round the bed , no air con but it is cooler here in this part... More

Zion View is placed away from the busy main street of Ella on a steep hill. The views from the rooms are spectacular both in sunshine and rain. You can see both Ella Rock and Little Adams Peak, and on a clear night the lighthouse on the south coast. We stayed two nights and really enjoyed lounging in the hammock... More

Incredible mountain views of Ella Rock from every room; a great reasonably priced guesthouse option. Rooms were very clean, food was great. The guesthouse is within walking distance to town. Highly recommended!

Unfortunately we could only spend two nights here. We arrived in rain and mist, as it was getting dark, but were stunned by the view when we opened our bedroom curtains next morning. The food, location and service were very good. We were picked up from Ella station and driven on to Negombo (a daunting seven hours by road!). Zion... More
