The room we had was at the ground floor and the access was either through the kitchen or the parking lot. The furniture was old and cleanliness doubtful. The mattress was obviously not clean and so were the bed sheets, unfortunately. Only one light bulb was functional and the ceiling fan looked as if someone had plucked it out. Breakfast... More

Excellent price for my large room with bathroom right in the centre of town. Good wi fi and fantastic that the two levelled restaurant is adjoining in front. This creates a buffer from main road noise of which I heard none from my room. A nice big roof top with clothes line to sort out some washing was a bonus.... More

It was probably the hotel we appreciated the most in Sri Lanka. It is well situated in the center of Ella, the rooms are big, we had one with a balcony and it had a lot of charm. The staff was really nice. It wasn't expensive, comparing to some other hotels and gh in this region.

We went to this place for a beer and some food and noticed the nice Lion glasses. When asking of we could buy them somewhere our waiter Pubudu talked to his manager and they gave us the glasses for free, which was really nice of them. The food is good, reasonably priced and there is a nice atmosphere.

Wide variety of food options. Our order came in a good time and was well priced. Around £3 each. Recommend the king prawn stir fry! Great friendly staff, a special thanks to Anuruddha who gave me lots of fresh good coffee with a happy smile :-) We will be back thanks :-)

Me and my friends had a nice and comfortable stay in this hotel. We visited in the peak season hence the place was so crowded and we had to reserve a table well in advance for the dinner. (you are not allowed to dine in the rooms) Rooms are spacious, clean and looks very nice. Room was really big and... More

Hotel is very nice and comfortable for staying in the mountains, it is close to bus stop on the main street. Hotel has tasty cuisine, kind stuff, free wifi ... Room was clean, bed with mosquito net. You can visit Little Adam´s Peak or Ella rock - cool trips. Within walking distance you can find lot of nice restaurants/bars.
