Amazing place, just 5 minutes walk the center of town Ella, in middle of forest, full of life. Excellent food, especially breakfast. And very knowledgeable owner, who provides perfect tips for day trip, can arrange scooter renting and more. Rooms are comfortable and pretty, bathrooms very clean with hot water. I'd rather classify this hotel into a category of boutique... More

A small guest house with a nice garden surrounded by trees. We had a separate cabin, a newer one I think, nice and clean and fresh. It had a small balcony at the back instead of a patio with chairs and table to sit. The only drawback was that it was right next door to another house where there was... More

We stayed 4 nights and the guess house reached our expectations. The price was less than similar guest houses in the area. Staff were friendly and helpful including the owner. Yes, he is very business like but we have no complaints. If you want to be away from the Main Street give the Forest garden a try.

Stay away from this place. The owner is rude and has nothing but dollar signs in his eyes. He wasn’t helpful in the slightest. One night, we went to his house which is inside the accommodation area and knocked on the door to ask him a question. It was only 8pm, but he was very annoyed we disturbed him and... More

Beautiful room, gorgeous food what more could you ask for? Nelly (the owner) was very helpful and informative. It is a very peaceful and tranquil place to stay, surrounded by the sounds of nature. It was my 2nd time here and I would definately be back a 3rd time!

The place is up quite a steep hill, but not far from the bus stop - a 5-10 minute walk. The advantage is it is in very quite surroundings, you only hear the sounds of the forrest at night. The owner - Nelly - is very nice, good English, trying to be helpful. It is in the cold part of... More

We stayed 2 nights at Forest Paradise. The staff was very friendly, however when we asked them to arrange a taxi the next morning for worlds end the price was extremely high. So you're better off booking somewhere else! The room was nice, however it was difficult to keep the mosquitos out of the room because the sides of the... More

This simple review is only to describe the manner in which the owner of this guesthouse made me feel, not to desribe the rooms or services. After approaching the owner and finding his price range was too high for my budget, he offered his neighbor's place, at a cheaper price, and it was still too pricey I thought. He ended... More

We arrived in Ella by train after leaving Delhousie and were taken by tuktuk to Forest Paradise which was a couple of minutes away. Our first impressions were very positive; the grounds were beautiful and our room was very clean and well furnished including a mosquito net. The owner, Nelly, welcomed us, and was clearly knowledgeable about the surrounding area.... More
