Rooms are very clean, pool is nice but a bit to cold in september. Friendly staff and really close to 'city' center. Good place to stay! Good prices as well. Nearby the trainstation and you're sleeping in a green enviremont!

We've been in Forest Paradise for one night. Our room was good and clean. We've had a mosquito net and a nice view all around the room. The place was in construction, therefore we might have been there one year too early. They are going to build a pool and some more rooms. But that's not a matter. Our Stay... More

When we went there were constructions so we were almost alone in all the place. I guess there were constructing a pool which could be very nice. We stayed only one night. Host was very helpful and talk a good english. Sheets were almost clean and shower had hot water. It was pretty nice !

Pro: The place is very calm as some minutes foot walk away from the big street. The bungalows are simple but in a lovely style. We felt save although it would have been easy to open the old windows with bare hands. The curry is rich of variation and so can be the breakfast. The garden was useful for our... More

This is probably the nicest guesthouse in Sri Lanka that I have stayed at so far! It is situated in a very nice garden with trees: very relaxing!! The rooms are very tidy, the furniture very nice and I had a little terrace with chairs and a table... The bathroom and towels were clean and there was nice hot shower.... More

Reasonable price, clean room and super friendly staff! The lady made a delicious breakfast for us both mornings we were there consisting of omelette and toast and fresh fruit. Definitely a good and quiet place to stay in Ella with lovely staff. Tuktuk transportation was included in our room price.

We came here 15 years ago for the first time. There were only 5 guesthouses in town! Now you cannot count them anymore. It was our favourite spot then and it is still now. Not the best viewfrom your room in Ella, but a very nice garden next to the forest and 5 minutes from the far too busy main... More

The guesthouse is situated in amongst a lovely Jungle area which is peaceful and quiet, you can wake up to the sound of the forest. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean, with all the amenities you could need. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the rooms were for the price we paid. There is a bar/restaurant at the...

I have not experienced any downsides to our stay in Forest Paradise. This was one of our best stays in Sri Lanka especially for the price. The rooms are very clean and in order. The beds were soft and nice to sleep in. The garden had a lovely view over Ella and the hotel is well situated.
