It was a lovely space to stay at and would stay there again. The room was comfortable with a mosquito net, fan and HOT shower. Great WiFi too. Beanstalk Breakfast included and perfect way to start the day. At the time of writing laundry was available across the road 400Rs a kilo. Also they had 2 puppies there!!

Very nice owners, who helped us plan our visit in ella! Good location, near the train and the main road. Great breakfast, great price. The only thing we did not like was the sheets of the bed and the towels. They were old and itchy. But other than that, we recommend this place!

Rooms are clean and comfortable. We stayed in a newer room which was huge although it seems a little unfinished. Breakfast was tasty and filling. Lovely family that run it - really friendly and attentive. Off the main strip so more peaceful. Perfect location near the train station and close to all the attractions of Ella.

5 of us stayed 1 night and the hotel was perfect. Very comfortable beds and our hosts were lovely. Breakfast is simple but delicious, roti bread is a must! Great outdoor area to chill after a big day. Showers warm and wifi worked well. Also new rooms are mahoosive!!

The management makes all the difference here. The rooms (I was in the new block) are still pretty much unfinished but still clean and comfortable. The overall atmosphere is relaxed and the management cannot do enough to make you feel at home (inlcuding pointing the way to the local beer shop). This place will only get better when the new...

Really, really friendly owner, always smiling and ready to help with any queries. The main area in Ella is very small so it’s really easy to get to if arriving via bus, it will only take 5 mins to walk to, it is also very close to the train station. Breakfast was lovely you could get things like banana pancakes... More

We were pleasantly surprised by how nice this accommodation was considering how cheap it was. We had a clean, nice ensuite room and it was the road down from the train station (easy to find). The best bit though was breakfast - banana pancakes, tea and mango juice all included in the price of the room. Bargain!

We had 3 nights in Ella and the Ella Guest Inn was a big part of our enjoyment. It is close to town (1 minutes walk) but no noise. The rooms had an excellent bathroom and tiling. There was soap and a hairdryer and always hot water even for the hand basin. The bed was well sprung and not foam.... More

This place was one of the best we found in Sri Lanka. The owner couldn't have been more helpful, the room was a good size and the bathroom was amazing. We stayed in the cheapest double room as a treat (we were backpacking) and it was great value for money. Hot shower, comfy bread, great breakfast. The location is just... More
