The family run location is up the hill with a beautiful view to the opposite green and forrest covered hill. 3 rooms with a grass terrace are cheaper though even nicer than the ones with balcony that are above. It is tempting to spend the whole day lazying around on the terrace watching the birds and squirrels. Food is freshly... More

Be aware that if your room is on the top floor, the walls have great ventilation gaps and don't go right up to the ceiling. That means everyone's party is suddenly your party! Also, the dogs in Ella all bark like banshees at 3am. The room and bathroom were clean but our bed was very rickety. The food was great... More

We booked this hotel based on fantastic reviews of the food but were sadly disappointed. The curries were watery and had very little spice, although they were nice and fresh. Furthermore, the showers were cold everyday and we had to wait 30 minutes while they warmed to lukewarm. There was no wifi in the rooms or reception area.

The room was very spacious with a large balcony. The bathroom was clean and the water hot. The dinner was very good and the garlic curry was different from anything else we had in Sri Lanka. Breakfast was average though. Unfortunately when we stayed half of the place was a building site so it didn't look particularly attractive.

I stayed with this Guesthouse on both visits to Ella and it was my favourite place as a budget traveler in all of Sri Lanka. The rooms upstairs with the very large balcony are so clean and comfortable which I found very hard to find in this price range. Most beds in SL are uncomfortable and rooms small but I... More

I was travelling with a friend, and we already made a bit of research in some book guides, so we basically ghave a few options where to head to find a room. We were walking in the middle of the night (although it was only seven in the evening) and already from afar we saw this guest house (although we... More

Rooms are forgetable...but the food is great! ordered the vegan curry..the non vegan is so so only. Wifi available...but not in the room....hot water had some problem we got to wait for awhile before we can get hot water. Nice garden n quiet setting. No hassle and no fuss.
