We chose one of the cheaper rooms to stay in which was a tad noisy as it was next to the kitchen and a working garage. Room was small but clean with a decent bathroom. Nice restaurant attached with good free wifi. Staff were lovely and very happy to help and advise on activities and round ella. Decent place to... More

We went to the resturant for an afternoon snack/early dinner. The food was ok, but the staff were atrocious. We ordered our first bite to eat with one staff member who never placed the order. The same thing happened with our second order. The staff didn't seem to care about placing out order, customer service and instead we're standing around... More

I can't comment on accommodation as didn't stay here. The food I had was lovely, the service is a little slow at times but only because the staff seem to be really overworked and busy. But the great thing about this place is Ruwan; he will arrange taxi's for you at a better price than the taxi stand, give you... More

We visited this place to have lunch. We were a sri lankan family. The food and the staff was not good at all. The staff wasn't friendly and their service was terrible. The restaurant staff mainly are concern about the foreign customers as well. I do not reccommend this place.

Our only requested when booking was for a quite room as we had been traveling all day and just needed a good sleep, we where shown to our room on the ground floor around the... More

Although the staff is nice, the manager: the man running the place, became mad at us because we wanted to get out the hotel at 10.30pm to have diner, he told us the hotel was CLOSED and that we could not get out, we were very surprised because nobody never told us the hotel would be closed at that time....

It mad us feel uncomfortable. Our room was at the corner so we had big windows looking over a small terrace. The... More

We stayed here after leaving an awful hotel in Ella, it is right in the middle if the Main Street with a great view from our room. It was very good value, we would have paid more. We had a very large room with two four poster beds in it. It wasn't spotlessly clean, pretty on par with other hotels... More

We stayed 2 nights here. We found the room quite dirty. Not cleaned from previous people & not big on service either. Take it of leave it attitude. Breakfast ok & location ok as there is only one Main Street in Ella anyway. If we go to Ella again we would look elsewhere.
