We stayed 4 nights, one more that planned. The room was spacius and there was plenty of hot water in the shower. Good bed. Even better is the Big balcony in front of the room and the top terasse. It is wonderful to spend time in the hammocks or the other chairs, looking at the top Classic view over the... More

This was a wonderful guesthouse run by a family that takes very good care of their guests. We stayed two nights, and because we had to leave very early in the morning, we got sandwiches with us for our bus ride. The view from the rooftop of Ella's Gap is absolutely magnificent! I spent an afternoon in one if the... More

I've stayed here 5 times now over the last 13 years and will never tire of the view from the terrace. Chatura Swarna, the owner, is invariably friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The rooms are fairly basic, but clean and adequate. (In Ella you won't want to spend much time in your room anyway.) The traditional curries and lamprais (Google it)... More

Do not come here if you are expecting a 5 star hotel, as the name states it is a guesthouse. That said, you will be welcomed by the friendliest owner and its staff in the warmest way, you will be astounded by the magnificent views from the balconies and terrace, and you will enjoy delicious home-made curries!

We stayed at the guesthouse for three nights. The rooms are comfortable and clean and the place has the most amazing rooftop and terrace with view to both Little Adam's Peak and Ella Rock, where you can eat your meals and relax. You can simply go from the hotel by foot to both hikes. The breakfast was rich and delicious... More

We came to this guesthouse in august 2014 and it was probabily the best place of our trip to chill on the terrace and roof. Rooms are nice and well thought out for travelers. And the boss is a funny Guy but he manage seriously his business. One of our 2 best adress of the trip.

The view of Ella gap from the rooftop terrace of this guesthouse is really amazing!!! Very comfortable bedrooms, friendly and helpful staff, delicious pancake breakfast and home cooked Sri Lankan curry dinner,... I cannot say anything negative about that place. The beautiful Little Adam's Peak is just a short hike from the guesthouse and the city "center" of Ella is... More
