We arrived after a long train journey and then spent around 10 mins trying to find someone to check us in. Eventually we did track someone down and they took us to our room and then vanished. Trying to get information, wifi codes took another half hour (during which time I was ignored several times by staff) and then when...

This must have been a good hotel in the past but as things stand now the place needs a lot of maintenance and general housekeeping that goes with running a motel, For example the rooms at the top level have a beautiful view but that is all. I had no towel no soap or shampoo and when I asked for...

Not a lot to say just that we finally changed hotel as it was very dirty, the service was bad and the furnitures was broken. The employees did not even try to understand why we were upset and laugh at us! We went to another guest house in the centre!

If you want to enjoy the view, get a rooftop room, although warning there are a lot of stairs. The accommodation is budget, although they are charging mid-range prices. The door to the room was broken as was the fan that kept me awake all night. No hot shower and no aircon. One power socket in the room. Food and...

The manager Rizwan was a great bloke. We had lots of stairs but the view was worth it. All in all we liked Ella and thought Rawana was good value for money. Not all cards work in the only atm so keep that in mind because some hotels only take cash. The waterfall is worth going to, chilli is not...

I booked a triple, roof top room through tripadvisor (tingo); however, when we arrived we were told we weren't booked. I showed our confirmation paper and were told there was a double, roof top room, but no triple room anymore and there might be a single room as well. After a long wait, this was confirmed and I was asked...

Tired, basic, not overly clean, poor build. The price is cheap by western standards but is in no way fitting with what you get. They do a nice omelette at breakfast. There seemed to be a big crowd for dinner so I'd imagine the food is good. It is located conveniently close to the town centre.

Simple clean room, a bit tired but fine in this price range. Curry buffet meal was superb (order before 5pm) Great view from top floor terrace, and small pleasant garden with a couple of hammocks to chill out. We'd definitely come back here one day

We arrived without prior booking for a hotel in Ella as our whole Srilanka trip was last minute. Checked 3-4 hotels upon arriving and most of the good ones were fully booked and the ones available lacked one thing or the other. Our driver took us to this one and everything looked okay. The room was big & clean with...

Stayed here in January. Arrived after a wonderful 7 hour train trip through the mountains and tea plantations from Kandy in the evening.
