Views of Ella Rock and Ella gap are magnificent from all the rooms (with their individual terraces) and from the main restaurant & terrace at this small, simple guest house. The garden is pretty too. The rooms & bathrooms are simple, ours were not as clean as they could have been. One pair of rooms has an adjoining living room... More

This hotel best value is the view from the top of a hill, both from the rooms and facilities. The room are simple but clean, the garden will help you relax after the walk. Very good address to recommend at a very reasonable price

The Hotel deserves its name, fantastic view into the landscape. Rooms were quite small, but clean. No safe available. Bathroom was ok, but water pressure rather low. Dinner was nice, rice and curry tasted well. Waiter was a little bit short of words. To sum it up, amazing view, the rest fits to the cheaper price

The views from the rooms balcony and the restaurant are awesome! The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable with mozzie nets. The staff are all very friendly! Breakfast was tasty: fruit smoothies, eggs and toast. Would definitely recommend staying here!

Although up a steep hill, it is possible to walk to and from Ella if you don't fancy a tuk tuk. We stayed for two nights, and the main assets of the hotel are the view and the staff. Gorgeously breathtaking vistas of ella gap, and to see the famous sunrise you just need to sit on your patio. Food... More

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
