Sunnyside is an absolutely lovely place. Cynthia is the most helpful and welcomming host you can imagine. We had a spacious, collonial style room, equipped in all you'd need. Only the bed could be a little longer but I'm over 190. The bathroom was nice and clean. Breakfast was delicious and huge. The place is 5min walk from the train... More

This is an attractive, cheerful and clean holiday house, with lovely traditional/colonial decor and friendly, intelligent, accommodating and interesting hosts. The food is amazing and our driver said this was the nicest accommodation for him during our two weeks in Sri Lanka. The bedrooms are spacious and attractive, though the shower is a little weak. Just a short walk from... More

I stayed in Cynthia place for 2 night. The place is charming with a nice outside garden and shaded patio where you can relax. It's 10 min walk to Ella train station and town center. If you return to the place at night, it's better to take tuktuk cuz it's completely dark! My room is very clean and large; it... More

A lovely bungalow tucked away just a short walk from Ella train station and the Main Street of town. The rooms are extremely clean and the food is amazing! You also have access to all the common areas outside which are beautiful. Wonderfully warm and gracious hosts. Will definitely stay here again!!

A clean, comfortable and spacious room, only a 10 minute walk from the train station and Ella's bars and restaurants. Can walk to Little Adam's peak from Sunnyside in 2 hours, there and back. The hostess was lovely and cooked us a delicious Sri Lankan breakfast.

The Sunnyside Bungalow is well situated, perhaps a 10-12 minute walk into the center of town where all the restaurants are. The rooms are basic but spacious, and very clean, with linens and towels in good condition. There is no A/C, but in Ella, it really isn't needed and the room fan is fine to take any warmth out of...
