We had a fantastic stay at the The View. The actual view was more stunning than can be explained. We sat for hours just drinking beers/tea while reading and enjoying the view. You can also eat breakfast just outside your room. The inside of the room was very spacious and nice. The bathroom was great as well. It was nice... More

Pros: *lovely view(you can see little adams peak and ella rock from your room!) *you only have to walk 5-10min to the village *you're not bothered by the crowdy and noisy Ella. Cons: *the cleaning service wasn't really good. Our room was still dirty when we arrived. (e.g. we found a lot of hair on the ground, the shower contained... More

Stayed at The View for 3 nights enjoying the spectacular views. Clean rooms, the staff was friendly and helpful, and Nimal worked like a hero and spoiled us rotten with his services. Food was ok, but not spectacular. We recieved free dinner the first night.

I loved my stay here, if you come by car it does feel like you are quite out of town at first but honestly by taking a short cut down the railway track you can walk to the centre/train station in 5 mins! Once you arrive here you won't really want to leave as its so peaceful and no words... More

In Ella we stayed at The View for two nights. The hotel name very much lives up to its reputation looking out at the valley and amazing scenery. The staff were incredibly attentive and the manager looked after us very well, arranging accommodation for us at the next stop and also providing us with good directions and advice for a... More

Though a bit of a hike from the railway station with our bags and next to impossible to reach in a tuk tuk, this hotel is lovely. Fairly new, rooms lead out onto a beautiful terrace where the staff will serve you food and drinks. It is a 5min walk from town if you take the short cut (which can... More

Me and my friends greatly enjoyed our stay in the View. We were lying on the counch looking at the sky full of stars at night. The room is finely furnished. The service is amazing. The host is very considerate. He even wrote us a map to tissa and worked out a backup option for us. Wish we could stay... More

Great hotel! Very friendly staff and amazing food. I highly recommend this place. The hotel is at the end of a bumpy road but once you arrive the views are spectacular and the rooms clean and tidy. I have spent 3 nights here and would definitely come back if I could. It's only a short walk to the town centre.... More
