Be aware. When you arrive you will get a decent price from the owner. When its time to pay they will try to screw you over. They also put an extra service charge on the room that hasnt been spoken of before. First time this happened to us in Sri Lanka. You will end up pay much more then you... More

We found this hotel when the one beside it charged too much. The staff from the hotel came running to flag is down. The rooms are spacious, we had two twins together as a king and an extra twin. Bugs nets are a must. Not so much for Mosquitos but I think I saw every other bug on the planet... More

We did not stay here, we were actually staying just next door so I can at least say it has a good location as long as you don't mind a short but steep walk up a hill to get there! We did eat here one night though and my god do I wish I could do that again. The rice... More

Stayed just one night. The room was comfortable enough with a lovely view. The dinner was amazing, a huge selection of different curries to try, some of which were truly delicious! Especially the aubergine curry and garlic curry! Yum! The hotel is in a good location for the town centre which is less than 5 minutes walk. Little Adams peak... More

We stayed here for four nights and really felt lucky. The staff were super helpful and friendly and we had a huge family room with three huge beds (we are five and this was the most room we had on our whole year of traveling). We even had a huge balcony with a super view of this beautiful area. Breakfast... More

I wouldn't call it a resort as it isn't very luxurous but since I don't need luxury, I didn't mind. The staff here is very welcoming and friendly and you can ask them anything. They always help you with a smile.

I had the names of several suitable guesthouses in Ella. Rawana was chosen because the recommendation for the restaurant. I was very happy with Rawana. A large room with a large bed. There was a huge shared balcony outside my room with great views. The room was simple but clean. Exactly what I wanted. The restaurant lived up to and... More

Welcoming small property with a range of rooms up a very steep hill slope. The upper, newly built rooms have a lovely large balcony, reasonable room and an okay bathroom. Plumbing or tiling is not first class in a new bathroom that leaks water across the floor and walls. The manager, was very attentive and helpful. Breakfast okay. If you... More

We stayed here for two nights and were treated like family by the staff. On our honeymoon we were greeted with flowers on our bed and had the best Sri Lankan curry and rice we ever had in the cute little restaurant. Do not underestimate it just by looks, it beats the food in town ten fold! Rooms are decent... More
