A truly spectacular view from the bedroom window. Had an upgrade of room after first night.
Staff great, food really nice, some of the best we had in Sri Lanka.
Lots of walking options close to the hotel. We booked after reading all the excellent Trip Advisor reviews

We stayed at Mountain Heavens for 2 nights in March 2013 and it was fantastic. Lots of other reviews have mentioned the view and I concur - it is just stunning. However, we enjoyed our stay for lots of other reasons as well - the rooms were lovely and spotless, the food was very good and the service was fantastic. We met the manager and the owner, both of whom were very helpful and great to talk to. We ate both breakfast and evening meal at the hotel and enjoyed. The location isn't remote - you simply walk down the railway track for the quick route down to the centre of Ella in 5 mins ;)
Highly recommended - this was probably the highlight of our trip in Ella, just beautiful!!

Room Tip: the lowest rooms have the garden space :)

Excellent location, and fantastic views of mountains, especially from top floor rooms. Situated within wallking distance of Ella, and all the local trekking area. Prasanna the general manager is a gem, helpful in everything and charming. Je's still single ladies...all the staff are excellent also.
Good food, and choice of menu.

Wonderful position with breathtaking views through Ella Gap. We booked a top floor room after reading reviews on Trip Advisor ... spacious, comfortable and clean. Staff were helpful and available. We loved the short walk along the train tracks to the village (the 200 rupees for tuk-tuk home was well worth it) and walked the other way to the waterfalls in the early morning sun with sparkling paddy fields laid out below the falls. Helpful guides will spot you and for a few rupees will show you to the head of the falls .. a bit difficult to find. (500 rupees if you are feeling generous). Brave and fit and prepared to scramble down a few rocks? .. you can swim in one of the waterfall pools (not for those with vertigo!).

If you want a taste of the mountains and good clean simple accommodation in a stunning position, Mountain Heavens is for you.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms are spacious and modern. Didn't see the others but took advice from previous re...

We enjoyed the stay over 1 night. The room and the bathroom were very clean. We were lucky to have a driver, who took us down to town for dinner. Otherwise the only option would have been a tuk tuk- you would not want to walk that road in the dark.
Overall good experience and excellent stop between the sea and mountains.
