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

We thought Ravana heights was a real gem! Such smiley, friendly staff who really wanted to please. We reckon we had the best breakfast during our whole 2 week tour at Ravana Heights. The views from the breakfast terrace and gardens are nothing short of stunning and we enjoyed lounging around in the pretty garden in the early morning sun... More

My family stayed here for three nights and absolutely loved the place. However, as a traveller you need to be realistic about the level of accommodation Ella has to offer in general. It is all built on a hill, it rains - heavily and there are power cuts, all part of the charm of the place ! We had originally... More

Nice location hotel but it is more of a home stay rather than a boutique hotel. Which is fine, for those who like it such. Breakfast menu is limited and telling whether we will have dinner in hotel, in morning itself, was a bit annoying since in holidays we can't be so planned. Again, this is to us, for those... More

A long overdue review from our three day stay at Ravana Heights in late November. The aforementioned owner was away but the three ladies running the show in his absence were the warmest and friendliest we encountered in Sri Lanka, i can still picture their smiles. On our last night, they even cooked a special meal for us. The ladies... More

Thankfully we were only booked in for one night. The owner/manager is extremely 'in your face' and certainly too much for us. I believe he only wishes to please and impress but perhaps too much. He believes that he knows best in most matters and he certainly lets you know. We had a 2/3 hour power-cut in the evening which... More
