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

Great place! Fantastic mountain view, nice rooms, spacious and comfortable. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Located near Ella, it's very quiet place, you can enjoy the peacefulness of the nature. And it takes only about 5 minutes to get to Ella by car. We spent there four days and had very good time.

This property has some great reviews based on the views but when you arrive, late at night, very tired and hungry, you need more than a view! We were very disappointed in this hotel - from the lack of hot water ( in fact a lack of water at all from 8pm to 7am), the strange bed linen and dirty... More

We stayed 3 nights at View Point Villa. Our villa was overlooking the mountain. We had a triple room with baby cot to cater for our family (2 boys of 1 & 3 yrs old). The room was comfortable. In the morning they set our breakfast table in the garden at the corner were the view is the most beautiful.... More

What a magical place. We got our own little house with a a wonderful view of the mountains. The food was great and the service very good. This place is located a few kilometers from Ella, but it's quick and easy to get a tuk-tuk. We took a cooking class and the chef taught us how to make delicious curry... More

I recommend this place, very good rooms with a lot of space, clean and good beds to sleep. The bathroom is also great with hot water. But the most important point in this guest house is the view, just incredible, you are directly inside the mountains. The only bad point is the location, far from the town but the view... More
