the room was very nice and we had a balcony with a beautiful view. but the whole guesthouse was seemingly neglected, the service indifferent and therefore i think the price was way too expensive... the atmosphere could have been much nicer had the staff been more attentive.

We got a room on the top most part with a nice view of the hills around.Weather in this part of Sri Lanka is amazing too. You can go up to... More

We booked two family rooms 2 month earlier, but when we came toTea Garden we were very disapointed, because the staff didnt want to take our luggage from the bus. The road to hotel is rocky and the staff finally pulled luggage destroying 4 suitcases!! We had to pay for one muldy family room almost 160$ per night, and the... More

Our first disappointment was that there was no accommodation available to our driver/guide despite being requested. We had two double rooms at the top so were grateful for services of friendly staff to take our luggage up the many steps. Our room, especially the bathroom was a but scruffy and the towels worn. However, the view was magnificent and breakfast... More

I asked one of the staff members how much was it for 2 double rooms a night which he replied 5500 rupees a night, and then I confirmed that it was for 2 rooms and he said yes. Only when I checked out I noticed it was for 5500 rupees for one room! I could understand if the room went... More

After a terrible stay at clifton inn in nuwara elyia, we arrive here at the tea garden holliday inn. It is hard to find and the steep short road to get to the bottom stairway is bad. After climbing about 75 steps with our luggage, we met the friendly guest who takes care of us. We rented one of the... More

I have returned twice now to the Ella Tea Garden. For the price you pay, it is excellent value. We stayed in the rooms above the main dining area, and also in a 4 bed room. The views of the waterfalls and mountains are stunning from every single room. The breakfast is eggs and fruit with endless toast. The coffee... More

We had a room on the top floor. Simply amazing view. The staff was friendly and helped with everything possible. Gave us ideas for hikes and arranged a driver to arugam bay in one hour. We had a lovely time and would definetely go back. Only negative about this place is that the shower wasn't to clean.

2 star hotel. access road is rutted and potholed and a steep 35degrees. our van could not drive up. Hotel is only remarkable for a very cheerful and happy staff - Raju- who's laughter was happy and spontaneous. otherwise, book a hotel with A VIEW in ELLA. this one had none.
