A well known travel book has a gushing review of this place so we were looking forward to a lovely moist cake. We tried the lemon and the chocolate cake, both were very dry. The service was friendly but not overly interested, the ambiance didn't resemble coffee shop but felt more like you're on somebody's (rather untidy) veranda. If you... More

Me and my boyfriend had a really nice stay at little folly. Because it was full we had to take the really big family room. Which was clean and had a lot of space. The host was very very friendly and helping and will give you the best hiking and scooter routes. Because of him we made the best scootertrip... More

We absolutely adored this place. The owner was so lovely and friendly and always willing to help. Our bamboo cabin was cheap and so clean and large. The bathroom was nice and big and we felt so at home here. The breakfast was delicious, location convenient and overall it was an excellent experience!

The place was just up the road from where the bus drops you off on the main road which is perfectly located to restaurants. The staff were amazing, eggs on toast in the morning with fresh fruit juice and the best chocolate and lemon cakes!! We had the bamboo lodge with a terrace/veranda, ensuite, double bed, very quaint :) Being... More

We stayed here for one night with my family. Located about 300 meters away from the small city center of Ella. It was a cabana covered by bamboo. Not too much expensive. Family owned hotel. Owner was very helpful. Average facilities. Amazing sri lankan foods. Recommended.

We stayed for two nights in Ella - a town that comes highly recommended and we're not entirely sure why. Ella was fine, but not exceptional. One got the impression of a little town that was straining under a massive tourist growth. The noise was incredible, the power was spotty, and for two days or so the only ATM in... More

Little folly was really nice, and very good value. The rooms were clean and charming, the bathrooms were also good. The owner, Gunasiri, is very helpful. The location is great, especially if you like a sunset beer at 98 Acres (recommended after hiking Little Adam's Peak!). Ella town is also close by, 5 minutes down a non steep road. You... More

Nice place to stay in Ella. Not far from but not situated on the main stretch which was nice! Bungalow was nice and clean. Did hear the animal in the wall but wasn't too bad! Breakfast was good and included!
