Clean, neat and quiet. Family house extended. Amazing service and hospitality. For those that doesn't bother with hotel standards it's definitely recommended. The place is very clean and very close to the railway station ..few minutes walking to the town center. Thank you Cynthia for the huge breakfast

We stayed here for one night. We arrived really early so we were glad having a place where we could drop our luggage. The room was basic but nice. The breakfast was good. You can just walk from the train station to the guest house (10 minutes)

After a long search at accommodations in Ella we eventually booked Sunny Side Lodge via Tripadvisor and had pleasant contact with Anjelo, he responded quickly to our questions. What an amazing place. It has a view over the tea plantations and although it is on walking distance from Ella you're in an absolute paradise and it's quiet. We are with... More

Found this guesthouse online when searching for a place to stay in Ella on a trip with friends who were visiting Sri Lanka for the first time (three years ago now - delayed review!). Cynthia made us feel very welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the bungalow. Lovely antique furniture and relaxing outdoor space. Shame we... More

Only 5 minutes drive from Ella station. They provide free transport from Ella railway station. Service is friendly. Meals are excellent. This place has a quiet environment and it gives a "home like" feeling. They helped us to arrange a vehicle for our trips from there at a reasonable cost. Rooms were clean.

It was very pleasant to stay at Sunnyside HB. The climate was very beautiful and the hospitality given by the owners was really amazing. You can get Tea/Coffee & breakfast at your own time. They never hesitate to serve at anytime. Their breakfast preparation was very good and filled dinning with Juice, bread, fruits, egg, etc. It was located near... More

I would like to thank the owners for the lovely time we had. The price of this guesthouse is definitly worth it. Distance to main road: 50 meters. Distance to Ella mainsteet is 400 meters (7 minute walk). Bring a light after dark! Breakfast was far above standard. If I can make two remarks: the matrasses were a bit thin... More

We decided to go to Ella for just one night and then jump on the train from Ella to Hatton to walk Adams peak, but Sunnyside and Ella was so nice that we decided to stay another day. It's a short walk out of town and lies a little hidden from the traffic noice. Cynthia welcomed us with a smile... More
