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

Maybe one of the best places to enjoy the sectacular view on the mountains around Ella. The rooms are basic and clean. Hot water is not working. The lights in the room and on the veranda are to weak, impossible to read a book or to see the keyboard of your lap! The WIFI is working well. The matress could... More

We were told to awake at 6am and pull back the curtains of our room, we had arrived at night so were blown away by the view. An amazing sunrise, with a stunning view of Ella Rock and beyond. You should stay for the vista alone! Although the rooms were large and clean with a good bathroom.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Its perfect to hang out and enjoy the incredible view from aour terrace or from the restaurant. I can definately recommand this place. The food quality was also good, Lassis have been great. very friendy servcie. Price-Value was absolutely ok! You need a tuk-tuk to get there and to do things.

The rooms are pretty grim. We stayed in rooms 7 and 8. Very basic, mosquito nets were full of holes and the doors and windows didn't fit well. No7 has an ant infestation that comes out in the dark. Despite what they claim there is no air con. But this is not a problem as Ella is cool. Most the... More
