Stayed her one night late August. It's located a bit up the hillside, so be prepared for some walking up/downhill. It's right in the center of Ella. It's basic, but it was all we needed and the price was reasonable. The breakfast was basic.

The room is big, clean, with a nice wooden floor and with a balcony with a beautiful view. The bathroom is not new but clean. The manager is very friendly and helpful. It would be good to have wifi in the room, right now is only available in the lobby.

The rooms were okay but the price was good for what we paid. They were very attentive to our needs and the location was right in town. Now they are located on a hill and have a road so if you are walking it is great exercise but you need to be able to walk up a steep incline.

The staff is very friendly and really tries, yet not completely there yet. The room and bathroom were spacious with private balcony, however quite outdated with old bed covers and some knitted art on the wall. Stayed there for two nights and one of the nights there was an arrival of Danish(?) students. The staff already informed us they were... More

First I start with the positive things. Huge room and beds, huge bathroom. Nice views. For people with disabillity issues this is not a good place. Many stairs to our room. The hotel is on a steep hill. To climb the little Adams peek is easyer than the road to the hotel. The road is paved with stones like the... More

On arrival, our room had both a faulty shower and no functioning television and one functioning power outlet in the room (after the manager had spent 15 minutes piecing together three different outlets to make one functioning power board). The hotel manager was helpful but this was more a function of the number of problems his hotel had, versus actual... More

The room was nice and big, clean and has a great view from the balcony. Staff is very welcoming. It is located right on Ella main road, near all the restaurants and shops. There is wi-fi in the lobby and it works well. Breakfast included, you can ask for Sri Lankan breakfast if you want.
