As title says. If I ever go back to Ella, I wouldn't even consider any other place. I was visiting with my girlfriend and her parents. First nice surprise was, they send a car to pick us up from the station. The guesthouse is located on a side of a mountain with an UNBELIEVABLE view (and I don't get impressed... More

Stayed here for 3 nights mid Sept, enjoyed the out of the way location, but a major road passes well below in the valley but traffic noise not such a disturbance. Lovely views through the Gap with views of Ella Rock and Little Adams Peak. Little Adams Peak a 90 minute return - leave Greenhill 5.30 am for sunrise and... More

My family of four stayed at Green Hill in September, in one of the larger rooms downstairs with a king size bed and a bunk. Overall we really enjoyed our stay at this hotel, it's a beautiful place (the view is absolutely killer!!). The location is fantastic, though if you catch a tuk-tuk from the railway station it will feel... More

We stayed here for one night in July. I can't imagine staying longer than that. The room we stayed in seemed smaller than it looked in the pictures and the furnishings were beyond sparse. The bathroom had lots of bugs in it, likely due to the unscreened window that was wide open when we arrived. The terrace area was pleasant... More

We stayed three nights here in sept 2014. Upon arrival we were shown our room that looked not quite as good as the ones in the photos we had seen. Turns out they have a private cottage separate to the other 4 rooms. Much more spacious and light ... And it literally looks gun barrel straight down between Ella gap... More

Green Hill is one of the best places we stayed all over Sri Lanka in our 1 month trip. I came here, after staying here 3 years ago, and I remembered the great view, good food, and friendly service. 1) The view is just amazing and worth it by itself. Just open your door room, and have the best view... More

The guesthouse has a stunning view over the Ella Gap. We have stayed three nights at the Greenhill. The fisrt night in a smaller room, but the matress was to thin and we could move to another room. The owners try to make you feel welcome. We also loved the curry and the nice terrace.

This is really a five star guesthouse: intimate (only has four rooms), extremely clean and with a lovely view of the mountains and little adam s peak. The owner is caring,discrete and pays attention to little details, spoiling his guests. Fruit juices are amazing especially if tasted on the terrace. Dinners and breakfasts are also very good and complete. So,... More
