Nice place to stay in Ella. Not far from but not situated on the main stretch which was nice! Bungalow was nice and clean. Did hear the animal in the wall but wasn't too bad! Breakfast was good and included!

We stayed at little folly for 2 nights. The cabin was very small and dirty, we had an animal scratching and running about all night in the wall of the cabin.The owners were very nice and hospitable. This place is only suitable for back packers not us.

Loved our stay here, felt like staying in the jungle! Staff were very attentive, even took us on a guided 'shortcut' to railway bridge when we were unsure of directions. The new Family rooms is fantastic, and the bamboo cabins offer a rustic charm. If you want a quiet nights sleep then probably not for you as can hear all... More

I was recommended this place a long time before even arriving in Sri Lanka, so made an extra effort to find it out, even though the rain was lashing down on my arrival. Kumara´s greeting and wide, innocent smile made me feel instantly welcome. He showed my a room, we fixed a price. Five minutes later he brought a fresh... More

The manager was the sweetest, most lovely man that we met in Sri Lanka. The rooms where very cute - don't expect the ritz but DO expect genuine Sri Lanken kindness, help and integrity - along with a good nights sleep well away from the backpacker buzz of the main road

We stayed two nights in a log cabin. At first we were stoked that they had space for us but it wasn't too good for sleeping. Pros: Nice setting looking at the garden Big room Warm water for the shower Mosquito net Nice staff Good cake and breakfast (roti, Dhal, jam and banana) Cons: The blankets were tiny and thin...

It was love at first sight in Ella. While we'd already fallen in love with this quaint village the instant we got there, the stay at Little Folly was the highlight of our visit. Beautiful, clean bamboo log cabins welcome you and make you feel at home instantly. The hosts go out of their way to make you feel comfortable.... More

It was a positive experience to stay at Little Folly. Excellent service (incl. handwritten maps for hiking), good location in Ella and very tasty breakfast! The host/owner speaks really good english and is genuine intrested in your well being.

I absolutely loved this place! We stayed here for three nights at the start of our trip around Sri Lanka. The wooden cottages are set in a beautiful garden with pepper, cinnamon and clove trees and beautiful flowers. The cottages themselves are beautiful, like something out of a fairytale and are spotlessly clean with minimal but nice furniture and mosquito... More

We spend 3 nights in a cottage for a fair price. Bed and bathroom were clean. Nature is surrounding. Walking distance to centre and tea factury. The cook is amazing, he has made twice the best rice and curry we had in Sri Lanka! Also try the lemon-cake. Walking trip explained by owner was perfect; beautiful views without any leeches... More
