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

From the moment we were picked up at the Ella Station until we left, after spending three nights, nothing was too much trouble. The rooms are spacious and well fitted with great balconies and perfect views of Ella Rock. The dining area and bar also has great views and is comfortably furnished. The staff are attentive and service is excellent.... More

The accommodation here was simple and did the job. It was a perfect base to explore the surrounding countryside and Sena, the owner, is able to supply you with anything you might need locally. We walked to Ella's Rock with a guide who was excellent and used a taxi to transport us to our next destination, also very good. The... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and hade a overall nice experience. The absolute best thing with this guest house is the magical view over Ella Gap. Every room has a hammock where you can chill out and try to embrace the view. The rooms are basic and clean and there is a nice restaurant / lounge (also with a amazing... More

A supreme location, with views down the Ella Gap and beyond from the spacious dining/sitting ares and the front of rooms. Good food and service, and well managed and maintained throughout, the property was relatively new, concrete, and a bit soulless. Our room was small and quite cramped, but nevertheless adequate and no frills. The location also offers easy access... More

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
