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

A brilliant little spot for a few days in Ella. The owner Gunesera and his staff (Kumar I think!) Were brilliant and always on hand to help. The cabins themselves are spotlessly clean and comfortable and the food (especially the cake and tea) are wonderful. Can't recommend highly enough.

Even though we had booked a month earlier for a log cabin, we ended up at the room next to the road for a night due to some confusion before we got shifted to the log cabin first thing in the morning. A bit of an inconvenience but it didn't bother us too much. The owner was away so it... More

We stayed 3 nights in one of the two log cabins at Little Folly. The B&B is however expanding, so more rooms should be available in the nearby future. When we arrived, we received a nice cup of tea with some delicious (!) lemon cake (every day there’s different cake). Apart from our breakfast, we did not have lunch or... More
