Wow. Such a beautiful view and why we stayed here. The food was fine and the room was not expensive. Our bathroom did smell a little of drains though. On balance, it's a decent place to stay because it has a beautiful view and is low key/low impact on the area around it. I think some basic maintenance/painting could make... More

The location of the hotel is great when you want a fantastic view but less if you want to walk into town. But I don't think you can have both in Ella... Room was nice with a thick and big matress. Too bad I had to get up so early to walk Worlds End;-)

Hotel is basic but that is the least important in Ella. View from the room even from the bed its just magical. Price is very reasnoble for such an amazing location and stunning view. Staff is very friendly.

The view from Ambiente is truly stunning. It was the first thing my sister and I noticed when we pulled up. All the rooms have the gorgeous view from their balcony and it's definitely the best feature about this place. The rooms were clean and comfortable, with very little noise. The gardens were a great place to relax, although the... More

Their view is worth a million bucks. So happy to have stayed here. The restaurant is ok, and the service friendly. The rooms were clean and the balcony great. Get up to watch the sunrise. You won't regret it! They offer a lot of other services but I didn't use them. Other guests seemed pleased though.

I agree with previous reviews. The room is basic. No a/c, but it is not needed. I was missing some hooks that will enable to hang staff. They do not tend the room during your stay. Based on previous reviews I checked the room and bathroom when entering, and found the shower did not work, so I got another room... More

We really enjoyed (while having breakfast, just sitting on our balcony) the majestic views over Ella Gap with sunset, clouds, waterfall : beautiful! The rooms are basic, not the best but could be worse. Staff is friendly but a little bit weird: hard to say why. Food in the restaurant was just good.

The view from the hotel is amazing. The room was clean, comfortable and it had a great view! Breakfast was great and they have wifi in the restaurant (although not in the rooms). Not easy to get to the town centre as it is on a hill, easier if you have a driver/tuk tuk.

It is difficult to review the Ambiente because on one hand it provided us with one of our most memorable stays during our 6 week holiday in Sri Lanka, yet on the other the rooms were probably the most basic we stayed in! The Ambiente is situated in the most beautiful position looking directly down Ella Gap it is hard... More

This guesthouse is in a fantastic location with breathtaking views, beautiful grounds and good rooms. The problem is it is badly managed. 1) when we arrived, they told me that I have not made any booking, although I have done so both in writing by emails and by telephone. So we ended up in a driver's room for the first... More
