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.

I've stayed here two years in a row now. Great central location but elevated off the main street with spectacular views looking out over Ella Gap. Rooms are spacious and the family is friendly yet gives you privacy at the same time. Great value for money.

We turned up to Ella without booking a room, we read about this place in the Lonely Planet guide book&snapped up a large family room after hearing the price 4000rupees. The beds have been the comfiest so far on our trip around Sri Lanka. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest but we overlooked that for the price we were paying. This... More
