We are a couple in our early 30's and found Green Hill to be charming and perfect. We arrived in Ella from the train in the dark with nothing booked so stayed at one of the first places we found for one night and looked around in the morning. We walked around and found Green Hill. But wouldn't have found... More

Excellent experience! The rooms are very nice and clean and the view is amazing! You can loose yourself for hours starting at Ella's rock and the surroundings. If you are not in the mood to go out food there is very good, specially the amazing breakfast!

Breath taking views. Nice family room with big and comfortable bed, beneath the reception with nice terrace with beautiful view of Ella Rock and Little Adams Peak. The owner and staff are very nice and helpfull. We had great dinner with best curries and other sri lankan food. Tasteful breakfasts with lots of fresh fruit, coconut pancakes...

We arrived at this accommodation in the pouring rain and we greeted by staff with umbrellas to help us to the place. There is no road access to the hotel - you have to walk along on Nguyen a dirt track for about 30m. It was quite slippery but we all made it. We stayed one night and in the... More

Spent two days at Green Hill with my family, stayed in room no 5. Stunning view, secluded and quiet. The manager and staff did everything to make our stay easy and pleasant. Nice food served with another view that makes you wanna stay.

We booked and paid in full for 3 nights several weeks before our arrival. We were 2 couples In our 60's. When we arrived we were tired after a 7 hour train journey. The member of staff took our cases but seemed rather odd and didn't show us a room. After several phone calls he tried to take all 4... More

Upon arrival at Colombo airport, we were met by the lovely Podi (owner of Green Hill) who made us very welcome to Sri Lanka. We arrived at the hotel late so we couldn't see the view but when we woke up the next morning, both of our jaws dropped at the sheer beauty of the view from our balcony. Our... More

We stayed here for 1 night. The view is great, you can see Ella Rock and little Adam's peak. It's a 10 minute walk to main street/the train station. We had a room on the top floor. The room was clean but quite small. There was mold on the ceiling of the bathroom. Also the mattress is really thin, so... More

Really nice hotel. We had a great view from our room. The food was really good! But have to say that I found it anyway a little too pricey for what it was, we paid 120 dollars per night with breakfast.

We arrived fairly late in the evening following a long journey to be told, after some time sitting around, that there was no room for us as they had double booked. We were told that we would be staying '2-3 minutes away'. We were taken by the owner's brother on a 5 minute tuk tuk drive further out of town.... More
