Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ambiente is a simple but clean and welcoming guest house, with nine perfectly acceptable rooms. Seven bedrooms are en suite and the other two rooms share a conveniently-located bathroom with shower, toilet and wash basin. There is also a small restaurant offering predominantly Sri lankan dishes. All rooms, and the restaurant, have balconies overlooking the hills. Activities can include: treks to nearby caves and waterfalls, or to Lipton's Seat, birdwatching with local guides, cultural tours (Dowa cave temples, Maligavila Buddhist statue, Haputale monastary, Adisham), train journeys from Ella and a visit to Horton Plains. ... more   less
