I was impressed with this hotel, our room was very spacious with a large four poster bed (with mosquito net) and table and chairs. We only ate breakfast here, which was fine. It is in the centre of Ella so easy to get to everything you need. The only downside is that we didn't have hot water, even though we... More

We stayed 2 nights and we enjoyed double bed with perfect mosquito net and balcony. Room was big, well equiped. Price was fair, try to bargain. Wifi and hot water included. Prices for food were higher, but don't worry, there are many places to eat around (we liked Fish&Chips next door).

For our needs it was a good place. We got a really big room with two double beds, the price was acceptable (but we asked for some discount and got it). We didn't want to search for a room long time, so central location was perfect for us. The staff were friendly. The room was upstairs, facing the main street... More

Room was very good, big with two double beds and one single. Staff were attentive. But early in the morning there was a lot of noise, banging upstairs and what sounded like drilling. Very annoying when trying to sleep! Apart from the noise the hotel is nice,

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.

Booked here due to it being on the recommended list via lonely planet, unfortunelty I don't think any representatives have stayed here in a while. 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
