Let me start off by saying the owner is a gem of a guy! When we arrived at the small hotel, our room was occupied (apparently, the booking was messed up) so the owner allocated us the best upgrade available- with 2 queen sized beds. The view from this hotel is one of the BEST you could get of Ella's... More

My family and I had a short two week stay in SL, one week on the road and one week within noisy hustling Colombo. On the road trip, we stayed 2 nights here and we loved the place, city and the food. The staff at Ravana heights were very polite and kind, making my wife's and children very comfortable. This... More

We were late in booking, so this was the only option left. Well, next time, we will just pass Ella by. Although the staff were very friendly, the place it self is very poor. We slept in a room with no airconditioning. On it's own not a problem, but we could not open the room because of the mosquitos. You... More

This hotel offers stunning mountain views and the rooms are of superior quality with more than adequate breakfast options. Although a tad over-priced, I guess the location makes up for it. The staff were very friendly and local currency payment is preferred.

We booked there according to positive reviews found on internet. A little bit expensive the room but it was worth the money. The place is nice and cozy, the view from our room amazing and the staff makes you fell welcome. Senhadi, the host, was always positive, talkative and eager to help us. He gave so many good suggestions on... More

We dropped in for breakfast, intending to make a dinner reservation based on positive reviews. The initial positives: The view. The woman who served and cooked for us was lovely and very attentive. The banana pancake was delicious and the presentation professional. The only downside to the food was that the toast was no longer warm. The negative: The woman... More

Stayed 2 nights in a fan room, no AC but it was fine temperature wise. Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Beautiful views from the room/veranda and common areas. An easy 5 minute (but dark!) walk to the main road of Ella, maybe 15 mins walk from the station. Would stay again.

We stayed two nights at Ravana Heights, an excellent accommodation with spectacular views and a perfect host called Senadhi. We enjoyed the tea and our breakfast at the terrace and also booked one (extremly delicious) dinner at Ravana Heights. The food is thai influenced and was excellent. Senadhi provided us with hiking-tips and organised a dinner and a transport for... More

Hotel has lovely views, although I am sure many in Ella do. I found the owner charming and helpful, despite some whining on here that he talks too much. Most of the Sri Lankans I met liked to talk, no matter their command of the English language. They are friendly folks! The owner organized a hike for us with an... More

We stayed two nights at the Ravana heights and had a mixed experience. On the positive side, the hotel offers a stunning view of Ella Rock, a view it is very difficult to get tired off. Furthermore, the hotel is located relatively close to the city centre, in walking distance, though you have to consider a rather semi dangerous roadside walk... More
