It was my husband's bday so we splashed out on one of the more expensive mountain view rooms, and so glad we did. The views over Ella Gap are phenomenal and it would be very easy to just lie in the hammock outside the room and while away days here. I notice some people mentioned the rooms were basic. Personally... More

I went to Ella for business and not really as a tourist so unfortunately I missed the opportunity to enjoy a longer and lazy time for breakfast and dinner on the terrace. Food is good so one does not need to risk disappointments in nearby restaurants. Service is cordial; rooms and facilities somehow basic and yet so pleasant.

We arrived with the train from Nanu-Oya, it was over an hour delayed. The hotel staff were still waiting at the station. We had a family room, clean, fresh and modern, with a fantastic view of Ella Rock (which we did not get to see until the next day). The vegitarian curry buffet and the egg hoppers we had for...

We had the buffet at Zion view. We ate allot of curries in Sri Lanka, but here the food was by far the most delicious! We had the vegetarian buffet and (despite of being a meat lover) I did not miss it at all! Don't miss Zion view when you go to Ella!

We stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel is in a fantastic location, with great views overlooking Ella Rock but not worth the price tag. Staff are really friendly and when mistakes are made, do try to rectify them quickly. There appeared to be no sign of a manager or the owners to quickly solve problems or answer questions. We...

Worth a trip (10 minute walk from the main town but up a steep hill) for a drink to catch the views before it gets dark. Dinner is delicious (buffet curries) but dinner it is at 7:30 which means it is dark and then there are no views.

Yes the view is spectacular (and the price reflects this) and eating breakfast on the deck is stunning but I would agree with a previous recent comment - be prepared for the road noise. It's sad because this is a prime location but the main road from the south snakes up the hill below. It's probably nearly a kilometre away... More

Wow, a superb location, the most beautiful view down the valley between Little Adam's Peak and Ella Rock. Lovely friendly and interested staff, great food. Just a perfect location for exploring the area. Simple but effective facilities. If I come back to Sri Lanka, this is a definite place I would return to. Thanks

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon, staying here after a hell of a night in Nuwara Eliya! We decided to treat ourselves and the hotel was amazing from start to finish. We were given a delicious juice on arrival and shown to our room - one of the apartment double rooms. We hadn't realised we'd booked a... More
