Stayed here for two nights. The views from the rooms are just wonderful with the clouds billowing over the face of Ella Rock. Also the breakfast was extremely generous and the terrace to eat on shares the same views as the rooms. It's also very clean but we found some dead bugs in our bed. NOT bed bugs I must... More

We stayed 2 nights in Ravana Heights in July 2014. The rooms was luxurious compared to most of our other stays. The Thai meal cooked for us the first evening was excellent. The owner and his staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. The views over the mountain are fantastic and we would recommend this guest house strongly.

We had a great stay at Ravana Heights in Ella. The views from the room and the hotel balcony are fantastic, the breakfast is excellent and the staff are welcoming and knowledgeable (from dinner tips to local/global politics, if you decide to venture there!). I have to say that Ella was not the magical mountain town the Lonely Planet had... More

Ravana Heights was THE surprise of our stay in Sri Lanka, unfortunately Ella was the only place where we stayed only one night. In Ravana Heights, it was simply amazing, beautiful, cosy, perfect! Senadhi was extremely welcoming and fun to talk to, and his staff so charming. Wow this breakfast on the terrace with the view!!! And we loved Ella.... More

Very good location with fantastic view. Delicious dinner worths for trying, but you can eat cheaper in the city (try both). Owner speaks english excellent. Good ajurvedic spa only 100m far. We expected a bit more for that price, but aren't disappointed. We started to hate owner's small talks about money, high taxes and guests not paying tips, because it... More

We got upgraded on arrival which was a really nice treat as it was our first night in Sri Lanka and we'd traveled 11hours on the train from Colombo. The owner greeted us in very good English and was really friendly. We arrived too late for dinner but the restaurant smelled so good! It was a shame we arrived in... More

This place is conveniently situated close enough to the main market area but at the same time, it's location affords it a great deal of privacy. Breakfasts are on the verandah of the house overlooking the mountains - what a beautiful view to start the morning with. The one in-house dinner I had was made vegetarian on request and was... More

We paid a very full price for our room here and were disappointed. The owner is arrogant and controlling and we felt very uncomfortable with the way the lovely female staff were expected to lug our heavy cases up all the steps, not to mention watching them heave heavy concrete pots up to the top garden terrace. Our top price... More
