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

We felt really lucky to find accommodation with Malith's place and all the personal care that he bestowed on us during our stay there and beyond after we had to move to another lodging. Malith was a very reliable guide and no errand was too much for him; so we felt very comfortable and looked after. Unfortunately we could only... More

Ella Guest Inn has a real homely feel to it. The rooms are basic but clean and are actually part of the family house but we loved that about the place! We were made to feel like part of the family. The location is really close to the centre of Ella and 2 minutes walk from the train station. Overall... More

We stayed in Ella on a backpacking trip through Sri Lanka. Malith offered us the 2nd room on the left for 2000rs, He was a very friendly host and we liked chatting with him in the sitting area. Comfortable stay with clean rooms. Very quiet as it's away from the main road. Would definitely recommend.

The communication before we went was prompt and helpful.  When we arrived Malith as promised was waiting outside for us as we walked down from the train station (there are no signs).  The communal area was comfortable, wifi was good and there is a satellite tv to keep up with events at home should you wish. The room was tidy,... More
