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

Very calm and atmospheric place with a fantastic view located above Ella gap. The host is very attentive and service oriented. Food was great. The house can be reached only via a small path through the jungle (it is a 20 minutes walk from the centre of Ella). Be sure to take a torch :-) The place is not cheap... More

Oh dear lord, the food is to die for. Podi and his beautiful family are just lovely. The views... I don't have words to tell you how beautiful. The only thing is that if you have mobility problems, the path would be tricky. Podi is very helpful people, too. Did I mention the food? Best coconut sambal in Sri Lanka.... More
