We spend there 1 night during our trip. The guesthouse in well located- surrounded by green trees and beautiful garden, close to train station. The owner is one of the nicest man we've met in Sri Lanka. He made us delicous breakfast and gave us a lot of good tips for the rest of trip. We trully recommend stay in... More

The guest house has a good location, just near the Train station and a couple of steps (2 minutes walking max) from all the bars and restaurants of Ella. The owners was nice and the breakfast was quite good, especially the fresh juice. But the main thing, the room was dirty!!! The bathroom was dirty, no towels, animals,... And the... More

This hotel had good reviews but we found it very disappointing. The rooms were not cleanness, the bed linen was dirty and the water was cold with hardly any pressure. The second room we had was worse. The owner changed the bedding when we spoke to him but was not very apologetic. The breakfast was good the next morning which... More

All reviews we had read said great things about this place. Our group of four could not disagree more. One room smelt of cat pee so badly that one of our group had an allergic reaction. Sheets didn't look clean but manager did come and change them. No hot water in the bathroom. Breakfast was fine. Manager did his best... More

The owner is very very helpful and the breakfasts are excellent. The rooms are average though and could be a little cleaner. Great location down a quieter road than the main road. Guides can be arranged for Ella Rock at short notice.

The place is really nice, the owners are really kind. The location is nice also, just some steps to the Main Street where you can find restaurants and the railway station. The breakfast is really good, hope you get to walk to Mini Adam's Peak, there's a really nice view and you get to walk around the tea plantations for... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and we were happy to find this place. Its close to the trainstation, only 5 minutes walk. The "mainroad" is just around the corner, were you can find restaurants and shops. The room was clean enough and breakfast was one of the best in Sri Lanka for us. You can choose between toast with... More

We loved the Ella vibe around town and really liked our guest house. The rooms are good, but it's mainly the friendly eyes of the owner what makes it just a bit better than the rest of our stays in Sri Lanka. The rooms were clean and solid. The bathroom looked also good, but the shower was leaking a little.... More
