This hotel, close to the most beautifull railway in the world is not bad. Nice rooms, ok breakfast (nothing special!) with an amazing view. (The View!) De gastheer doet zijn best maar ziet lang niet alles, het personeel is vooral aardig!

The view is amazing but the hotel is terrible . Poor food, luxury room with air on that did not work. Waiting staff unsupervised . Not a good experience . Maybe when all the building work is completed it will improve .

We booked this hotel very last minute and paid around £40 / $60 so were expecting a decent room for the night. We checked in around 10am and had a chat to the manager about our onward travel dilemma of how to get to Adam's Peak. He was really helpful and recommended a private driver who could pick us up...

The best part about this Hotel is definitely the really spectacular view over the Ella Gap. The staff was very nice, provided us with a hiking guide to the Ella Rock and organized laundry and massage for us - all at fair prices. Generally they were very helpful and gave us good advice for dinner, transport et cetera.The breakfast is... More

A very enjoyable stay at this lovely guest house on the outskirts of Ella. A very pleasant surprise to find a really nice pool has been completed and it certainly is a pool with a view!! Our room opened onto a terrace and the views are truly breathtaking. Breakfast was served outside the room on the terrace and was very... More

We have throughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in the upper suite. The views are absolutely stunning. The patio area is framed between Ella Rock on the right and Little Adams Peak to the left of a lush valley - a perfect place for yoga! The staff have gone out of their way to be welcoming, provide helpful information/reliable contacts,... More

We stayed for 4 days in August 15, booking two rooms for our family of five. The rooms were clean and attractive, with comfortable beds. The balcony was beautiful, we spent most of our time there enjoying home cooked food, tea, rum & coke and beer watching the awesome view through the gap in the hills, it is stunning at... More

We stayed here for just the one night on 18th November. It's quite delicate to get to, along a small hilly road, not really fot for the taxi we were in but we made it in the dark. A peaceful night’s sleep with the lizards in our room (it is to be expected/I don't mind them) and daylight awoke us... More

We really enjoyed our stay, away from the business and noise of the road, yet centrally located using the short cut path to the main part of town. The room was clean and comfortable, the view exquisite and the staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good too. We are happy to recommend this place.
