Without A doubt we were very pleased to stay at Little Folly. Great little cabins on the quiet road/ area on outskirts of Ella (Tip: don't stay in Central Ella. It's very noisy and busy road and building work going on all around. Little folly was peaceful but also close to everything you need. The food is excellent! And the... More

Loved our two night stay here. The log cabins are in a lovely setting, the owner really helpful and his cheerful assistant Kumara is always on hand with a smile to attend to you. Dinner was delicious and the famous lemon cake didn't disappoint. The towels have seen better days but the atmosphere and food made up for that.

It was our delight to return to Little Folly after our previous stay in 2012. We were warmly welcomed and really loved the log cabin accommodation which is spacious, spotlessly clean and beautifully situated away from the roadside. Nothing is too much trouble for Gunasiri, his wife and Kumara, their chief assistant - whether we wanted cake or train times,... More

This place is a short walk away from the village. The staff is extremely friendly and the cottage is a neat place that however is lacking a bit of furniture. The lemon cake that they are serving is absolutely phenomenal. Highly recommendable.

We stayed in Little Folly after reading a few reviews online and on a friends' recommendation. We stayed three nights in July 2014, and despite very hot weather, we found it to be restful and relaxing. Ella is a gorgeous little village surrounded by beautiful walks and views. Little Folly is a perfect place to chill out, read and eat... More

There are lots of places to choose from in Ella. Big, small, with views or without views. This was a quaint little place with no views of the Gap that so many other places advertise, but the cabins set in the jungle and back from the road. It is close to the main road in town and just up the... More
