The owner is very friendly and knowledgeable and happy to help you out with anything you could possibly need. I could see how some people might find him a little overbearing, however he means well and went above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasant stay. The room was lovely and clean, with a very comfy bed, and as... More

A very small guesthouse with nice view and delicious breakfast. Our double room is small, clean with old TV, no in room coffee/tea but with complimentary bottled water. A huge basic bathroom, clean with good shower. Staff were pleasant and helpful. The entrance off the main road is up a very steep and small driveway with literally one parking space.... More

We stayed here for one night in December and wished we could of stayed at least another night. Ella is just a lovely place and Ravanna Heights Hotel, which is only a short walk from the main town is the perfect location. It has wonderful views, exceptionally comfortable beds and the rooms are well appointed. We stayed in the family... More

The rooms are lovley, I loved the furnishing and design of the place. But it is a guest house and highly over priced. (we paid around 100$). The manager influences the place - interesting and assertive. The views are nice, the gardens beautiful! a plesure to sit in. For breakfast we received a fruit platter, a banana pancake we thought...

We were here for 3 nights, and really enjoyed our stay. The ladies will welcome any request with a relentless smile, and the owner was most accommodating making us early morning tea and takeaway sandwiches when checking out for our 6.39am train. The rooms come with breathtaking views, and are very well cleaned. Animals scratching were definitely audible during the... More

We stayed in a family room for two nights as part of two week trip to Sri Lanka. We arrived in Ella by train and had no trouble finding it. The room was great with stunning views. Probably best to take a torch for the short walk back into Ella at night. Breakfast was great fruit, omelet, toast and tea... More

We stayed here for 2 nights only. But it wasn't the room that made our stay unforgettable. They also offer a set menu with Thai dishes that are really great and I bet the best you can get here on the island. You are a fool if you miss it. The entire place with only 4 rooms is really stylish... More

We didn't stay here. Rooms looked nice. Actually, the owner of the hotel has a history as mountain guide and knows all the tracks in the mountains in Ella and surroundings. If you want to hike, you need to get in contact with the owner of this one. And I mean not just climb Ella Rock or Little Adam's peak,... More

Beautiful views and not much else. The owner shouted at our Taxi driver to get off the property (he was in the garden waiting to be paid and to take us into the town, not doing anything offensive in the slightest, very respectable character). We advised the owner that we wanted to check out as we didn't accept this kind... More
