Nice quiet location not far from the station. We stayed in the new room in a building next to the main house. The garden is very nice. The breakfast was one of the best we had, with a real omelette with good flavor (and tomatoes and oniion, not just eggs), the roti were very tasty. Unfortunately the mother was absent... More

We didn't stay in the guest house, but the owner was our taxi driver for one day. We went from Ella to Uda Walawe Park and after the safari we drived to Dalhousie. It costed us 13.000Rs, but it was really worth to do it with him. He drove really safe and calm. Moreover, he chatted and explained us many... More

dont be surprised if you arrive at the guesthouse in the afternoon and every door is locked. They just closed it, so we couldnt get back in and had to break in by climbing over a fenced door. They have wifi but ist really slow and they Switch it of all the time, i guess to save energy. good we... More

A stay at the Eeshani guesthouse puts the cherry on top of your stay in Ella – as if it could get any better with all of the walks, waterfalls, people and food. We were treated to the best of Sri Lankan hospitality, the owners were incredibly warm and generous during our stay, the little grandma is such a beautiful... More

This place is just awesome: we negotiated a great price that was totally worth it, the place was spotless (a plus, as many other GHs need to improve on this), the beds were comfy and warm, the rooms decorated with taste and proper furniture, the bathroom could have been one of a high-category hotel, the gardens beautiful, a really quiet...

Very clean new rooms. Nice bathroom with hot water. I stayed in the recently built rooms behind the main guesthouse so a little off the beaten track but worth it for the quiet location. Would especially be suitable for couples as it is quiet and private but still within walking distance of the main street in Ella. Also convenient for... More

Walked in as advised by other travellers I met in Ella. A beautiful house with a charming colonial style common room and a nice garden run by an old couple. The room is ok, basic and clean, maybe a little overpriced for a fan room. The bed was not so comfortable and the bedding had a stale feeling. Do not... More

Excellent place to stay for a couple of days. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Prices are very reasonable. The owner is pleasant and his English is far above average. The owner is also a guide for several trips in the area. We took two with him and he turned out to be an excellent guide and prices, again, are very... More

Here has a big and beautiful garden. An old couple live in this big house. They have married for more than 50 years. I liked to hear them tell me their big family and the disease they have. Although my room is a little bit dull and there are some ants in the bathroom, I really have a happy night... More
