Nice spacious and clean room (underneath the terrace) with a splendid view on Ella rock. They forgot to clean our room the 2nd day. Breakfast simple but rice and curry for dinner is super. Take your own beer, because they are not allowed to sell it, but happily keep it in the fridge for you. Town is a stroll away,... More

Nice small guesthouse, friendly owner and staff, personal atmosphere, good food - but nothing much to do in Ella except for the 30 min walk up Little Adams Peak. Like most other people we came here due to the train, and continued towards Yala Nat'l Park. If you stay overnight in Ella, then this place is certainly one of the... More

This place had the most beautiful views of Sri Lanka we saw on the whole trip. Our balcony view was amazing, and we couldn't get enough of it. The room was large and clean, and the food was very good. My birthday was the morning of our stay, and my husband had conspired with Bhathiya, our guide, to surprise me.... More

Simple, clean guesthouse type accommodation, amazing view of the waterfalls. The owner was really friendly and looked after us well - the rice & curry for dinner was amazing and very varied on both nights. Our driver took us here, so there is accommodation available if you're being driven. Recommend the walk along the train tracks to the waterfall and... More

Ella is a nice but very small village with not much to see except the surrounding nature. You probably arrive or leave by train as that's what all the tourists do. The hotel has a really boring exterior and looks like its incomplete. The room was ok but the balcony, believe it or not was on the inside of the... More

Not sure why so many people rated this place so highly, but this was the worse out of our stays in Sri Lanka. This was booked with our tour, so we didn't have a choice. The only thing good about this place is the view, but I'm sure there are others with the same view. When we arrived there was... More

Great location and comfortable rooms. Wifi is almost non existent, but not surprising considering the location. It's a bit out of town, not walking distance, so you'll need wheels. Nice and quiet location

This hotel was booked by our tour company. What a great choice. High above Ella town with great views from our balcony. Our first floor room was simply furnished and clean ... we enjoyed a good night's sleep. The whole place was clean and well looked after. Vegetarian food was excellent, freshly prepared and served in the main dining/sitting area.... More

We were booked in by our driver so we got a very competitive rate. The hotel aspect is fantastic, way up above the town with great views toward the Ella Gap & south. Our room was in the garret, 3 floors above reception & the restaurant. It was very spacious, too big for a couple, the beds were ok &... More

We visited Ella during September 2013. As we were told that we had to be crazy to rent a car and drive ourselves in Sri Lanka, we decided to book a tour of the island with a private driver from London. We did decide the places we wanted to visit, but the tour company booked all the hotels for us.... More
