I did the cooking class and learned to make delicious curries! We made 8 dishes in total. It was great! Especially when we could eat it afterwards, delicious! The staff are very attentive and the view is great! The price for taking the cooking class is 2000 rupees.

Nice place. Clean. WiFi. Toiletpaper. Towels. Warm shower. Nice view. Price 3500 Rp. A bit highin comparison of the rest of the island, but in Ella everything is >1.5x more expensive. We didn't have breakfast or other food. They offer cooking courses.

We did not stay here but went to eat dinner. The owner of our hotel recommended this place to us for a proper Sri Lankan meal. It was so good! It is all vegetarian, and comes with all the trimmings! If you are not staying at this hotel, I would highly recommend just going for dinner. We had an early... More

We spend 2 nights in this hotel. The room was simple but the extra of the hotel was the welcome of the staff and the amazing food (the best meal in Sri Lanka). We did the cooking class during 3 hours, and we learned a lot of curries, delicious.

Nice staff. Clean rooms. Decent surrounding. Close to city. Many thanks to the staff. I booked from the phone call and the manager had reserved it even in the peak season. Could improve the parking. All in all good.

Only top floor has the good view, that is also not the greatest view, rooms and food also at the average level, manager and staff is very helpful. local travelers, don't expect much hospitality any where in Ella. Really disappoint about that, I experienced it every where in Ella(hotel,restaurant, shops)

4800 Sri lankese rupees for a dirty room smelling of fungus and a very meager breakfast. No value for money even though recommended by lonely planet. I think they have doubled their prices after being in lonely planet but the service is not there. Better places in Ella !

This hotel was recommended to us by the driver we hired. It is very good, has hot water and the balcony is common, but each room has a smaller part of it with long chairs and a table. The rooms are big, clean and have hot water. Note that there are rooms that are really not good; we didn't see... More

For a budget traveller this place is fantastic. The rooms are a bit basic but huge with balconies and great views. The staff couldn't be more friendly, breakfast is above average and the rice and curry is superb-we had 7 different dishes. They are also happy to let you into the kitchen to see how it's done.

The property is located very centrally in Ella, and given it's hillside position has beautiful views (especially in the morning before the clouds descend!). The room we had was very spacious with a private balcony, ensuite bathroom, mosquito nets and a fan which is good value for 2500R. The Sri Lankan breakfasts are v tasty and 1 is enough to... More
