This guesthouse is family run and the hosts are really nice. We arrived hot and dusty from a long train ride and within five minutes we were sitting on a nice balcony overlooking the gardens and being served cold beers. It's a great place for meeting other travellers since there are only a few rooms and the optional meals (breakfast,... More

Room was clean and the owners very friendly and helpful. They helped us finding an accomodation even if all guesthouses were full. Also food was really good and the house is really nice and we'll kept. Ella is a great place to visit also with kids.

We stayed here with a group of 4 people and we enjoyed our time in Ella. The only thing is that the wifi did not really work at all times and the shower was a bit cold! The service is very nice, very friendly people! The rooms are a bit old and small... Could make you feel claustrofobic but was... More

Absolutely lovely family, had a fantastic cup of tea as soon as we arrived and shown the family wedding photos which we loved. Clean and very comfortable beds. In their family home but given lots of privacy, they went out of their way to fix and bring in a fan for our room. Arranged a good guide for Ella Rock... More

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

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
