Turned up in Ella without any booking and after looking around found the view, which delivers exactly that! Absolutely amazing setting overlooking the waterfall and valley below. The rooms were clean and adequate, though the shower had very little pressure. We were a group of 15 and so managed to reduce the price from around 2000 a head to 800,... More

Even closer to the train station. Hotel had a good atmosphere, all the staff were happy, friendly and seemed to work well together. Wifi only in public areas which... More

The name tells it already: the view is really awesome. I would recommend an upper room so you have the best view with a shared balcony! Had a great and relaxing time. Try the Rotti, I liked the dipps!

This is a good value for money hotel if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful place to enjoy the breathtaking views of the hill country and are not looking for any luxury facilities. Of course the tranquility depends on the other guests as well but we came on a fully booked day and it was perfectly quiet which makes... More

Owner you have to do something......be carefull, the stairs have a different height. Large patio and Great seats. The manager would like... More

We enjoyed the stay very much. The view was gorgeous, the family room huge. And once you found out how to take a hot shower (it was necessary to remove the shower head!? Otherwise you had either hot hot or cold cold) it was almost perfect. Of course, its not a * hotel. It’s a guesthouse but a very clean... More

Really enjoyed our stay here, of course it isn't a 5 star hotel if that's what you want, but it is was very clean and comfortable. Obviously the view was great so try to get a terrace room on the first floor if possible, you can see for miles around and great seeing the mist over the mountains first thing... More

We stayed only one night here (unfortunately) in a familly room, which was big, clean and nice with hot shower. We arrived before lunch and had a very short tim here and the manager was such a great help! He gave us tips on what to do and a map. He was just so helpful!

We loved our stay at The View! We enjoyed our terrace with incredible views of Ella Gap. We loved their delicious eggplant curry, their grilled prawns, as well as their rotis and kottu rotis and sauces. Laxman, the manager, is very helpful and he made sure that we were very comfortable. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. The View... More
