With amazing view like that I felt like I found myself in some beautiful landscape painting or somewhere in the Middle Earth! I wish we could have stayed there longer! Each room has a terrace and ours had a private garden, the service was excellent, the food too, rooms clean and very comfortable. We will definitely recommend it to anyone

I came here for 2 Nights. You are in the middle of the mountains - walking distance to the village center and the Railway station. The Hotel is perfect. Clean, nice staff, good food and the best is the view you have. Get a Lager and enjoy the view after a long day. Room is spacious and has nice design...

Mountain Heavens in Ella is the ideal place to relax, chill out and enjoy the most beautiful view over the landscape and mountains. The hotel is clean, stylish furnished and the staff is very friendly! From the hotel you can easily walk to Ella town with many restaurants and small shops and it is also close to places like waterfalls,...

Love the view, the staff and the small town Ella. In august I visited Mountain Heavens for the third time. The mountains and the nature sounds that surrounds the hotel gives me peace of mind. This time I brought friends and family, and we climbed Little Adam's Peak. I will definitely recommend this hotel to others. The thing I have...

Stayed 2 nights as a family this August. We liked it, though we understand the diversity of comments made so far. Obviously we liked the views and the very spacious, very clean rooms. Don't expect a luxury hotel (it's all tiled floors and simple but nice furniture, with a central staircase that feels a bit narrow and cheap), but anyway...

Stayed here for two nights. No bells and whistles but perfect for the area. Amazing views and warm and friendly attentive staff. 3.5 hr trek available locally up to the top of Ella rock. NOT for the faint hearted but worth the efforts if you can!! We were also lucky enough to be entertained by a terrific light show at...

A very pleasant surprise upon arrival. As advertised the views were breath taking and the rooms larger than I had expected. The staff were very friendly and immediately make you feel at home. The only downside is they really do need to add air conditioning if they are going to be counted as a top hotel. The village is also...

This small hotel is at the top of a track that our driver/guide couldn't go up so we changed to a tuk tuk. The views were breathtaking. We booked a triple and the room easily accommodated 3 adults. We were asked to order tea early if we wanted it and asked what time we wanted it served, in hindsight this...

At the top of an extremely steep track lies this tiny clean and hospitable gem with outstanding views. The rooms all have glass walls to enjoy the view however they are hot due to lack of air conditioning. Other than this the hotel has very friendly attentive staff and although little choice the food is freshly prepared and very well...

Stayed two nights at this breathtaking, unbeatable location. Our room had great view and a private terasse. Very clean and spacious room, but have to concur with previous reviewers pointing out the lack of AC/mosquitoproblem, spent some very hot nights here. Food is average, but should be no problem as there are plenty of good options a short walk away.
