Just a short walk from...

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!!
