what a find tucked away in busy Ella. Perched on the hillside looking down over the plains between little Adam's peak and Ella Rock. Simple rooms but extremely comfortable in the cooler airs of the highlands. Glorious dining area with view, of course, serving wonderful food- perfect poached eggs at breakfast and a wonderful array of curries in the evening.... More

Zion View was a wonderful oasis for 2 nights. Sena and his wife and staff were fantastic, the views are unbelievable, the food was great, and the room was very comfortable - spacious with lovely bathroom and a balcony with that view. It's a dog-lovers paradise too, with two beautiful and very friendly dogs, so well-behaved. Recommended, and we'll be... More

Expensive, but lovely place, with stunning views. We stayed in the bungalow near the entrance, and it is a bit small for four people, but nice and well maintained. Good view, hammock and chairs on the balcony and comfortable beds. Unlike many other guesthouses Zion view is very well organised, the people are very friendly and helpfull. The foor is... More

We stayed for two nights at Zion view. Indeed: gorgeous view and the best beds I stayed in in the whole of Sri Lanka. Everything in this hotel is efficient, clean, not broken and with a European twist. So if you are looking for a charming Sri Lankan guesthouse feeling with disorganised management you should skip Zion view. If you... More

This place has an absolutely stunning view of Ella Gap, and coming here is worth it for that alone. The room was wonderful, and the waiting staff friendly. Other reviewers have singled out the manager or the food as being particularly praiseworthy, but I would differ. The evening buffet was overpriced and bland. I asked for a chicken curry and... More

Having just returned from the most phenomenal trip to Sri Lanka, I would recommend anyone visiting this beautiful part of the world to go to Ella. This most incredibly tranquil and beautiful spot is nestled high up in the Sri Lankan highlands with stunning views, wonderful walks and lazy afternoons. If you visit Ella, then the only place to stay... More

My son and I only managed one night's stay as we used Zion View as a mid stop between Kitulgala and Yala. This was a mistake as there is a lot to explore around Ella and this Hotel is beautifully organised for travellers of all ages. My son loved the hammocks and the massage treatment and we both really enjoyed... More

Set on a hillside overlooking Ella Gap and Ella Rock this is a smallish guest house set on platforms on the valley side. To say the view is stupendous is an understatement. As well as sunset make an effort to wake up early and watch the sun come up down towards the plain. The rooms have a balcony and a... More

This was a lovely place to stay and just relax. The rooms have everything you need and lovely beds, but you will spend all your time in the hammock on your verandah soaking up the incredible vista. The owner Sena was a little prickly, but I think I would be too if I had to put up with tourists trying... More

My first sighting of the view left me awestruck. I was at Zion View for 2 nights and never tired sitting on the terrace gazing in wonderment. The rooms were comfy but the individual outside seating and hammock area were a definite plus. The food was fresh, tasty and authentic .The hosts were friendly and very helpful with helping to...
