The staff is very friendly but the hotel permisses and politics is very dated. The view and the fact that the staff is so friendly makes is worth. I was going for one night and decided to stay longer because this seemed the best place to relax and have a rest from my long travel. Just stayed at the hotel...

Nice view and gardens. Average room, which was not cleaned during our stay. Also everything was very damp. No air conditioning, fan only. Bed linen and towels old. Breakfast average, but in a nice location.

Amazing people work in this hotel! We have been to 4 different hotels in Sri Lanka and here we felt ourselves so good! They were always happy to see us, they told us good tips about what to do around and when to visit some place etc. They spoke good English. I guess their trick is that they have hired...

This hotel was just magic. I wish we could have stayed a week. Very comfortable, and the pool is so refreshing after walking around the countryside in the heat. Very reasonably priced and superb value. The manager gave very useful advice on nearby sights and activities. Very highly recommended!

It is located at top so you can have a very good view.....rooms are nice, may be there is room for improvement, with little effort they can make the difference. They have swimming pool where one can relax. Washroom is nice but towels are worn out better they change it. Menu at lunch was good and prices were reasonable and...

This place is an absolute gem. I only stayed here for one night (currently admiring the outstanding view eating breakfast) and it is a magical little place. That aside, the rooms are all you could want for a little break, clean, characteristic but modern, and the guys working there are very friendly. Only (huge) regret is I am only spending...

We stayed at the View Ella for two nights. The rooms are adequate, but a bit dated. They have a/c but no TV. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful, breakfast was yummy and the pool devine after a long day of walking. The hotel is a quick seven minute walk into town via the railway tracks. If you are arriving...

We were so lucky to stay at this hotel. So lovely to wake up to this magnificent view from our room. A lovely small hotel with basic facilities. We had a nice meal at the restaurant . I think you would have trouble finding a pool with such a view any where. It was a bit out of town but...
