We were really pleased with our stay here. The views and garden around the side of the guesthouse is lovely. Breakfast was great - a higher standard than the other guesthouses we stayed at in sri lanka. The dining room was lovely too. Some downsides was that the 'double' bed was two pushed together with separate bedding. The mossie net... More

Amazing views, central location, great service and tasty breakfasts. The staff was very helpful and gave us great advice on activities in and around Ella without just trying to sell a tuctuc or other service.

The best thing about our stay at Ella Tea Garden was the friendly service (mainly by Ranju). He's such a nice guy who is always willing to help. The view from our room was very beautiful, but the room was quite basic. The bathroom wasn't very clean (hot water did work). Wifi didn't work in our room (only in restaurant... More

We had a very nice family room, with wooden shutters and a terrace overlooking Ella Rock, surrounded by a beautiful garden with flowers and squirrels. The manager is really nice. He arranged a taxi service for us at a good price and made us rotis for breakfast. It was delicious. The place is clean and the shower had hot water.... More

This is a small hotel near Ella’s restaurant and shops, it’s a very small city so almost everything is at walking distance. The hotel has a great view, we stayed in a double room with shared balcony, and we could enjoy the view from there, or go to a common area where you could comfortably rest admiring the mountains.
