This guest house did not measure up to the description in Rough Guide/ Lonely Planet. There was no evidence of recent refurbishment in the original house where we stayed.we had booked directly by telephone and had not agreed a price beforehand. When we arrived and checked the price against the booking.com price we realised we had been quoted almost 2000... More

Rock View provided an excellent location in the small village of Ella with only a short walk to the main Street (opposite side from the station) and walk to Little Adams Peak. Ella is developing fast with many new guest houses under construction, these are spread out and on maps can appear close, but are actually positioned on the hillside... More

The view is truly stunning. There are so many options here but I really would recommend people check out Rock View. The staff here have been lovely; very laid back and helpful when we needed it. The bed could be more comfortable, I'm close to 6ft and my feet hang off, but not something that would stop me coming back.... More

We stayed here for two nights. Rock View is located at the center of the village, great view of Ella Rock. Also, a landmark of starting point to Ella Rock. The size of the room can fit in at least three persons, nice varanda for all rooms that enable you to view Ella Rock. However, the wifi is rather slow.

We have been here the second time. The family is very friendly and helped us if nessesary. The Rooms are clean. The Bathroom has cold and warm water and you have a moskito net. You can eat good food not expensive. (Leckeres Reis und Curry, nicht so scharf gewuerzt oder so wie gewuenscht).

We landed up at Rock View on recommendation of our driver. It was just for one night and thankfully so. We were a family of 4 and were given a room with a double bed and a single bed for 5500 LKR. The room was large enough, with mosquito nets thankfully and a small standing fan. Luckily Ella doesn't get... More

We arrived late in the day and most places were full but we were lucky to stay at Rock View. It is tired looking from outside but the large, renovated rooms are great and the view from our front balcony was wonderful. The hotel is not too far up the hill for a long steep walk but far enough for... More

Ella is basically a very touristic "city" with 1 main street. Most of the accommodation available is located in or near that street. This guest house has views to the Rock. Rooms are really basic. They are big but they have no wardrobes. They are not very clean and they don´t make the room if you are staying more than... More
