My wife, youngest daughter and I stayed in this bungalow for two nights last weekend. This is a family run business and the host - Roshan and Cynthia were such a lovely couple who went out of their way to make us feel at home. We stayed in the triple room upstairs which was comfortable, spacious and clean. The location of this bungalow cannot be better. Its only about 5 minutes walk from the Ella city main street. We only had breakfast at the bungalow as we wanted to experience the different food in numerous eating places in town. My daughter wanted a certain Sri Lankan dish for breakfast (Pol Pittu) and the lady went out of the way to accommodate. Can recommend this bungalow.

One of the highlights of our trip and our favourite host Cynthia. The room was comfortable and clean and the location was perfect, only a short walk to town and the train station, as well as other attractions. The highlight was certainly Cynthia's Sri Lankan breakfasts - amazing! We really enjoyed our stay here.

Magically located hotel close to the center of Ella. The owner is a super friendly woman who will assist you with everything ;) I think that the family atmosphere is the greatest thing here ;) Super fast wifi is another advantage.

Sunnyside was a lovely place to stay. The bungalow was very pretty, located just outside of Ella with a 5 min walk into town. Rooms were very well equipped with water, nets, fans and lamps and the bathrooms perfect. The No.1 thing about this place were the hosts. They were so accommodating, kind and friendly and made sure we were well looked after. They treated us to a stunning Sri Lankan breakfast. Perfect location for a great stay!

A peaceful (almost reverent) homestay which is a good escape from the youthful buzz of Ella. The host is attentive and watchful. Breakfast is exceptional and delivered in a gentle, calming way. The day of our leaving the power (and therefore wi-fi) cut out around 9am but luckily the town had power so we decamped to a cafe. Recommended if you like things quiet.

This place is a little gem. Super helpful owners Cynthia and Roshan and excellent breakfast, in fact the best breakfast I had in Sri Lanka. Cynthia and Roshan were so nice and went out of the way to help guests. The following morning, Roshan even drove me to the Colombo bus stop some 2 kms away. The place is within walking distance from the Ella train station. What's more, if you can play a little bit of piano, you can play the piano at the place. There you have it! I will highly recommend this place to anyone and will definitely go back there and spend more nights next time.
