Food : Excellent food every way. Villa quality is another, clean linen, very spacious and view is breath taking. Overall excellent place to... More

We spent one night at view point villa and we were greeted by the most enthusiastic staff who wasted no time getting us a cold drink and carrying our bags up to our room. The room was amazing, clean and comfortable. The food was great and the service you could not get better in a 5 star hotel. We had... More

Thankfully positioned way out of the bustling, tacky town of Ella, amidst the tea plantations this small hotel was in an idyllic position. The views over the hills were ever changing but always stunning. The rooms in individual bungalows were decorated in a bit of a wacky way but the teddies on the beds welcomed us. Unfortunately there were problems... More

The room was good but the hot water was not working and the meals were poor. The service was not attentive although apparently understaffed. 6 km from Ella. Recommend the walk to Little Adams Peak. Ella is a great location for trains

t was the worst experience we had in a hotel in Sri Lanka. We arrived there with high expectations after reading the review from Lonely Planet. After a very difficult climb of the steep bumpy driveway, we were welcomed very very coldly by a young guy that seemed to be the manager. We had a look at the room, we... More

I love this place, the staff are very helpful, warm and friendly, and the owner, Suna is very hospitable. The views are worth the six km trip out of Ella as the place is very peaceful. Just prior to sunset, the birdlife comes alive and some rather rare Sri Lankan bird species can be seen as well as heard. Dont... More

We arrived in Ella from the train which was a fabulous journey with plenty of great scenery to enjoy. The accommodation is abt 6kms out of town and when you arrive the scenery is just spectacular. The villa we stayed in was great, beautiful balcony with panoramic views, big bathroom with plenty of hot water and a bedroom that looks... More

After a disastrous trip to NE we arrived in Ella relieved to set foot in the glorious surroundings of Vie Point Villa. The welcome was warm and the situation is just idyllic looking down into the misty mountains with 180 degree views. The rooms were ok, nothing special, but they were clean and had bright bathrooms. They also had a... More

This is a difficult guest house to review, in terms of the approach and attitudes of the boys that work there it cannot be faulted. Everyone is so lovely and so helpful. Isuru's cooking is fabulous too. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel very much. So I guess I am hovering between the 'average' and the 'very good'... More
