We spent 2 nights in Zion View close to the end of our holiday and it was definetly the nicest place we stayed. we had a room for 5 ( 2 adults and 3 kids) which was spacious and well equipped and the view from the balcony was to die for. View from the restaurant terrace was also gorgeous and... More

I recently returned from a two week trip to Sri Lanka with my boyfriend. Unfortunately, Zion View was a huge disappointment. We had chosen this hotel to be our ‘treat’ hotel as it was a fair bit more expensive than any of our other accommodation. I will start with the good bits – the view from the rooms is wonderful,...

A really spartan accomodation, no aircon, toilet in which you cant throw papers, Shower which is open to view from the rest of the room, sounds and smels from paper in the bin spreading throughout the room, reallly for the price of 95 USD you could book like 5 star hotels in Lanka, view is nice and the food is...

We almost had to call the police. We had booked two nights on the phone and we I arrived he told me I only had room for one night, and even with rude manners. Didnt call the police to avoid a bad situation during a pleasant holidays, but it was the worst person I came thru in this lovely country

Spent a few days with the kids. Food was OK (the same on both evenings) and the staff was very helpful and professional . Great place to get your laundry done. The view is amazing. Rooms are basic and clean.

We had a family room at Zion View for 5 nights in August, and couldn’t fault our experience there. Sena, the owner, told us most people only stayed a couple of nights but we found Ella a pleasant chilled out place and a convenient base for trips to tea factories, as well as local walks, etc.; and we certainly had...

The hotel does not look very promising once you've made the climb up the little road, the rooms are however nice, the bathroom fine enough and the view from the terrace is absolutely stunning and will make for the nicest breakfast ever. The food is good, not as special as expected. Same goes for the Ayurvedic massage. The staff is... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The owner could not have been more helpful and accommodating and went out of his way to endure that we had an enjoyable stay. The rooms are beautiful and clean and all the beds have mosquito nets. The guesthouse is about a 3min walk to town albeit the walk involves a fairly steep hill... More

Our original booking was for only 2 days but we extended our stay since this is such a nice place. We had a triple room with a cot as well which was a bit of a tight squeeze but since all the rooms come with a large balcony furnished with a hammock, table and chairs, the size of the room... More
