This little hotel has one of the best locations in Ella, just next to the main road. It is very relaxing and peaceful to sit on the balcony in front of the room and drink a cup of tea while looking at the beautiful view. The service is fine

This is a nice place in the centre of Ella and had a nice view on Ella Rock. We chose for this place because of the excellent mattresses. The room is quit spacious and clean. The bathroom is a bit outdated. We got a b/b for 2700 rp. The breakfast was nothing special though, but not bad either. I experienced... More

Cheap guest house but a bit on the dirty side. The room I had also smelt a bit of damp but considering the amount of rain Ella gets it's not surprising. The place is in a good location and the terrace (and 4 of the rooms) have a spectacular view of Ella Rock. Would stay here again but not in... More

The best view of the Rock and the valley in Ella. Add to that the Scottish Tea Planter ambience of the historical place. Add to that the great location of a few steps to restaurants and shopping in Ella. Add to that a computer and fast internet connection available at all hours in the lobby. Add to that a wonderful...

This is one of the best place I've been in Sri Lanka, you shall find extra clean spacious room, but more than that a real Family warm place, where Amith, Mango and their parents are offering the best care of their guest. And to make your stay even nicer don't miss the local curry, certainly top range in Sri Lanka.... More

Very simple , basic backpacker guest house. I booked through Agoda and for some reason a massive charge was added per person on top of the usual taxes, making this the most expensive place I stayed in Sri lanka and also the most basic. Overall about 90% was added to the initial amount quoted per night. The other guests who... More

There may be a nice view but underneath that is a building site. The staff barely acknowledged me when I arrived and continued to ignore me during my stay. Sri Lankan people are so nice on the whole, these people do them a diservice.
