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.

Fantastic views and garden. Positioned very close to the main street but further up the hill making it very peaceful. Good breakfast with eggs, fruits, toast, tea/coffee. Really friendly staff. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a basic room to stay, just off the busy main road, then the tea garden holiday inn is your place. The owner is very nice and helpful. Our family room was perfect and the bad room is spacious and clean. Take notice of the old school pics of the family who run the place. The... More
