We recently had an amazing two week trip around Sri Lanka with a large group of friends from UK and Australia after our silver wedding celebrations in Galle. 14 of us booked both Pats main house and the lovely new cottage - with other friends joining as some headed off to Adams Peak. Having stayed at quite a few (spectacular...

We weren't sure what to expect as we climbed the windy roads through the hills and approached Morning Mist - when we arrived, we loved what we saw! Pat's guest house is isolated, but the pay off is uninterrupted views of the hills and tea plantations, it's just magnificent. John and I stayed in the peach room and were instantly...

Well, what can we say about Morning Mist. Sensational food, superb value, beautiful location, brilliant on site masseur, comfortable rooms with jaw dropping views, good wifi, and – of course – Pat herself. It’s rare that a host proves to be one of the highlights of your trip, but Pat was exactly that. She is a wonderful woman who puts...

We were travelling with our two sons aged 9 and 10 who are rather noisy so I was really seduced by the family cottage here which is a short walk from the main house. My husband and I stayed in Ella 13 years ago so were quite happy to stay out of town having heard it had grown from the...

On our last visit to Sri Lanka we discovered Morning Mist. While it's far from anywhere it's location is a perfect place to relax and unwind, nestled a lush tranquil valley filled with wild life the property offers 360' panoramic vistas. Pat's cooking is amazing, which is a blend of Sri Lankan and French influenced flavours. The rooms are private...

We had a very pleasant stay in Ella with Patricia. The long way to find the place is compensated by the view over the Ella area and the discussions with Patricia. She is an excellent hostess and a very interesting person. The food she prepares is very good and we even had a birthday cake for my wife ! The...

Bonjours ! Thank you for your review. I just want to correct something you have mentioned in your review regarding driver's accommodation.

The house is beautifully located overlooking mountains and Ella Rock. You should not choose the Peach room as the other two rooms have much better views (its stunning!). Also the bathroom in the peach room had mold which smelled a bit. The guest house is a bit outside of Ella town on the other side of the Ella Rock mountain...

Dear Martin, thank you for your review to the trip adviser. I hardly respond to the people who send positive / negative reviews.

I am so glad we managed to make the stay at Pat's. Grateful for her organising transport to get us there after the terrible landslides at the end of last year.
