Stunning view from your room. Nice to sit and relax with a cocktail. The room is ok and has all you need. The bathroom a little small but nice shower. Easy to get into Ella by Tuk Tuk. Would stay here again.

Amazing view from room, just what we expected. Photos and room description match reality. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds. Good food but would have liked more choice for breakfast. Road up to hotel very steep, challenging for some. One of best places to stay in the area. Would recommend. Wifi not available in most rooms.

Stayed at Zion View with a group of 8 ranging from 6 years old to 76 years old. We took the 3 bedroom apartment plus another double room. The apartment is huge with a great living room and big kitchen, 2 hammocks on the large deck and a breathtaking view of Ella rock. This apartment would be fine for 8... More

We came literally in from the street and got the last avaliable room. The room and the view was fantastic! And the service was so good at all time. Even when we called in panic from the train to Kandy, when we just found out we forgotten one of our passport in the security box. They were so nice and... More

Clean & cozy rooms, epic view of Ella Rock from large windows and balcony. Easy buffet meals and helpful staff. The last few blocks up the mountain and parking along the street are not for the faint of heart but the hotel is a comfortable home base.

This hotel is not far from Ella Rock and has some of the best 180 degree views I've seen in Sri Lanka that act as a back drop to your porch outside your room and the dining area! The food is unbelievably tasty, they offer the ayuverda spa treatments and it is only a short walk to the small strip... More

Located on a mountain with charming view especially during evening hours. Real high speed wi-fi is provided. If you ask for a no-spicy carry, you'll get it without any doubt. We experienced discomfort with pillows and blanket. Pillows were all too high to sleep on and blanket was served between two sheets and came out all the time.

Stayed here for 2 nights in September 2015. As we drove up the road to the lodge we were a bit sceptical but when we went inside and saw the view, it was amazing. The room was on the small side and didn't have a/c however there was a balcony with a hammock. The food was fantastic, easily the best... More

We booked on booking.com on a non refundable non amenable basis. We knew the terms and conditions very well and Sena ( the owner ) did not have to go out of his way to accommodate us. When we arrived last week Sri Lanka experienced its worst natural disaster since the 2005 Tsunami. With heavy rain, floods and landslides happening... More

The rooms are ok and the food was good. But overall it feels a bit like a hostel. Compared to a home stay or smaller lodgings the staff just didn't seem to care about you. I was new to the country on arrival so didn't know that in places like this the staff expect tips. Apparently my guess at a... More
