...Little Folly do indeed make very moist cakes! A sweet place to stop for some tea and cake and wifi that's off the main drag. If you have made a booking to stay here then please honour your reservation. They have very few rooms and the nice owner had turned down travellers as someone had booked the room. A woman... More

We stayed in the standard room (attached to the restaurant area) for a very reasonable price. Gunesiri was a great host - cooked omelettes for us when we arrived, made us a really nice curry one evening, and gave us coffee with lemon juice when we got ill (definitely not from his food!). The Little Folly is a great place... More

We are just staying at Little Follys and we really love it. Cute bamboo cottages on the road to Little Adams Peak. I found this place on the internet and prebooked via email. The cottages are super clean and cosy and you are surrounded by nature with pine trees. The owner and his wife are very lovely and help you... More

We really loved this hotel, the rooms are so beautiful, the place is quite and it's conveniently located to walk to the village or to climb the Little Adam's Peak to see the sunrise. You can also rest at the hotel, their smoothies and food are very good and the staff is so friendly and nice. We stayed one more... More

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
