After a week of travelling across Sri Lanka so far this is the best place I've stayed it. It's up a narrow steep path from the main town and set into the hills which an amazing view if the Ella gap and waterfall. The rooms look directly out to the gap and are clean and comfortable. For a change there... More

I stayed at Zion View for two nights. The rooms were fairly decent for Ella, and the views were quite nice. However, I wasn't particular pleased with the service (especially being a Solo traveller). It was hard to get a smile out of most of the staff, and I always felt unwelcome in the common areas - which was strange... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our 2 week trip in Sri Lanka. Our room was small but with high ceilings, no A/C but you don't need it as the nights are cool. In fact we used the blanket provided. The hammocks are inspired, great for soaking up the view. Good but simple breakfast, fruit with curds and honey,... More

The views from the rooms and terrace are unparalleled. Clean, good service, relatively limited choice of food but it is all delicious - assuming you like curry, and if you don't, Sri Lanka is probably not the destination for you. It's not a hotel that you would stay in for a week, unless you want to spend the time staring... More

The main draw at this place is the amazing views to Ella Gap. The room is smallish and there is not much to say about it. Fan, no A/C. Dinner was excellent and homecooked. Breakfast is a fairly standard, lovely Sri Lankan affair with eggs of your choice, fresh fruit etc. It was quite expensive for what we got. In... More

The hotel itself is nice, big rooms, clean, friendly staff, good breakfast but the wow factor really comes from the views! Perched on top of the hill and overlooking the neighboring one it's unbelievably beautiful. Ella being such a small town, it's easy to get to anywhere in town from the hotel, plus the hotel sent a tuktuk to pick... More

After arriving late in the evening in the dark, and waking early the next morning still jet-lagged...it was quite breathless to soak in the stellar views throughout sunrise. Stellar is an understatement. Terrific value. Perfectly clean, spacious, fantastic food, kind service, awesome common areas. Monkeys in the nearby treetops hopped around in the morning. Great memories of Zion View and... More

I have recently returned from a 16 day trip around Sri Lanka and stayed 2 night at Zion View in Ella - great place to relax and hang out for a couple of nights - this place is amazing with fabulous views directly down through Ella's Gap whilst hanging from your own hammock. Loved it all - accommodation, food, staff,... More

I read a lot of good about this hotel. We arrived in the evening by train from Colombo and had a free transfer by tuk-tuk. The dinner that was pre-ordered was delicious and as expected not cheap. The room is spacious with big bathroom and a fan. The bed is provided with mosquito net. But the most beautiful we were... More

The most wonderful hotel we have ever stayed in. We only spent one night in the hotel and it was beautiful! The rooms are clean and have the most amazing view!! The breakfast was one of the best I have eaten in Sri Lanka.
