Yes, the view is just as good as all the other reviews say. It does make a difference where your hotel is located, and I believe there are very few with this great view. The room was colorful and spacious and clean. The sheets on the bed were very pretty. There is no need for air conditioning - we were... More

We spent 2 nights here after climbing Adam's Peak and had wonderful, relaxing stay. The location is amazing with incredible views and 2 mins to the main road. The service was spot on and the family running the guest house were so welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was included in the rate and was delicious, and the curry was so good... More

We stated for three nights at the Hilltop Guest House after taking the train up from Colombo. From the minute we arrived, the owners and their staff made sure we had everything we needed and answered all of our questions. The room we stayed in was good-sized and the bed was comfortable. Although there was no air-con, it gets so... More

A lovely place to relax after the heat of the south . The friendliness is wonderful and the view + food even better !!! ( watch out for the Banana pancakes ). We only had three days here ,but it easily could have turned into a week if the time was not running against us . Thank you Hilltop .

My friends and I, a group of 4, stayed for one night at the Hilltop Guest House in Ella during our stay in Sri Lanka in August 2013, and we're so pleased we did. A member of staff travelled miles and miles to pick us up and take us to the hotel, and he was friendly and courteous during our... More

The guesthouse is cosy, comfortable and in a very good location. The views from the terrace and the top floor are stunning. Chathura is a warm, friendly and knowledgable host and can give you impartial travel advice. The rooms are quite basic but comfortable with en suite bathrooms and hot water (a/c not needed as it's cool in the mornings... More

Firstly: the views. Oh the views. There is a rooftop area here with hammocks and reclining chairs where you can gaze out at the mountains and contemplate life. It is wonderful. Secondly: the breakfast. They make damn fine French toast and nice tea in proper teapots. Thirdly: the rooms. They're very rustic, with a lot of light fixtures not working,... More

We were very happy with our stay at Hill Top guesthouse. The view over Ella gap is splendid, especially from the roof terrace that has chairs and sun beds. The owner was particulary friendly and helpful, taking time to answer all our questions about the political situation etc. He has made a map over Ella that he gives to all... More
