This was one of our favorite hotels in Sri Lanka strictly because of the incredible view. We've never had such a perfect view before, it's truly something. We stayed here for 2 nights. The hotel itself is simple but well maintained. The owners/staff aren't incredibly friendly, but again, just look out the window and it's pretty easy to get over.... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of our tour of Sri Lanka. We can't fault the room or the food and the view from the room was something we will never forget. However baring the young man who served us breakfast nobody else seemed to understand good service. We waited around for 20 minutes when we arrived whilst... More

Initially this place was not on our itenary. I felt both foolish and stupid for ignoring such a place and experience. First time I thought Internet is inadequate.

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

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
