View was stunning. Rooms were large (able to accommodate 3 teenage children in one without being too cramped) and clean. And did I mention the views from the rooms? Getting to the property was an eye-opener. Very steep and narrow road in. If you have a driver, you should make sure he has a conversation with the staff well before...

Big rooms with a great view. Rooms were not dirty but not well cleaned. Dust under the beds and the sink was not cleaned. Brekfast was boring and tasteless and the juices tasted only water. The staff was not rude more distant except for the manager and the driver, who was really nice. But i have no problem staying there...

We stayed 3 nights in a family room, one room had enough beds for 5 of us with a bunk bed. All beds had mosquito nets and the rooms were spotless. Dinner was good breakfast was beautiful and the service was the best we have seen in Sri Lanka, top marks for this! The kids play room was a hit...

Rather expensive and yes you get a view but nothing else. Dogs are barking to midnight, noise from trucks on main road, in the morning 5 am the sound from the mosque wake you up. So no good isolation. Internet is bad and slow except at reception area. And last but not least the price is too high comparable what...

We really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms all face the beautiful view of Zion and have a hammock on the balconies of each room. Modern, clean rooms. Large bathroom. Wonderful breakfast. Very friendly staff. We didn't eat dinner here, but the staff gave us a flashlight to use on the walk down to the main street. Would stay here...

We visited many hotels during our stay in Sri Lanka and Zion View was definitely the best. It really was a highlight of the trip. Amazing views, great rooms (again, incredible views), wonderful staff and two beautiful german shepherds. Charles provided exceptional hospitality, always willing to go out of his way to help. We left early on our last day...

We had a great time at Zion. Our room on the top level was spacious (2 double beds), clean and had a fantastic view across the valley and of Ella Rock. Location is ideal for town and the start of the trail up Ella Rock. It was my birthday while we were there and the hotel staff baked a cake...

Overall this hotel is fine, nothing particularly stand out but nothing negative either. The hotel is well located for walking into Ella (less than 5 minutes) and has a lovely view. The rooms are basic but clean and have a small balcony which is nice to sit out in the evening. Breakfast was tasty and filling. We only arrived around...

We travelled with my 2 year old. She loved he play zone and we stayed in the room directly next to it which really helped! Clean room and bathroom. View is beautiful. The breakfast was amazing - one of the best we came across, a true taste of sri lanka that so many guest houses don't offer. Staff very friendly....
