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

We didn't sleep here, just went over one afternoon after climbing little Adam's peak, since the LP said it is a great place for tea and cake. We ended up ordering rice and curry, and it was the best choice! Everything was prepared fresh on the spot and it was delicious!!! The owner is very friendly also. Great choice for... More

Once again booked after reading reviews in Trip Advisor. The guest house is located on a walkable distance from centre of the Ella town. The log cabin is the best of the lot. It a different experience altogether to stay in it. The power supply was erratic during the morning but Mr Gunasiri, the owner,arranged for hot water. He is... More

The owner and his staff were friendly and efficient. The cabin was beautifully situated to the rear of the main house,the bed mattress was thin but it was immediately doubled up. The walls of the bungalow were thin and you could hear what the neighbours were up to......beware! The food was home cooked and delicious. Cakes made a regular appearance... More

They have two lovely log cabins. the floor of the cabin is made of wood and cement . All the walls except for bathroom are made of wood. You get the feeling that you are staying in a true log cabin. Cabin, wash room very clean and having hot water. Mosquito nets are provided but we hardly notice them in... More

Little folly have lovely log cabins with big rooms and clean bathrooms. It is a short walk to the restaurants and cafes. We had a great stay here the only problem we had was we needed help to get a bus and no one there at the time spoke English which was quite difficult! Apart from that it was great... More

This is a little cake shop located at the very end of Ella village with a large sign 'Moist Cake'. We didn’t know about this place but thought we would try it. We bought two pieces of cake – chocolate and lemon. They were quite expensive in Sri Lanka terms (140 rupees per piece). The cake is definitely moist so... More
