The stay at the rock face guesthouse was very nice. The host was very helpful and courteous. The breakfast was also very tasty. From our room we had a great view over Ella. We would definitely recommend this guesthouse.

A group of us stayed here on our travels. The guesthouse is located in the center of the town. Nice owners, good price the only down side is the hike up the steps but to be honest if you are going to Ella you are most likely going for the mountain hikes so its a nice warm up course!

Peaceful, clean and comfortable rooms. We had such a nice time in Ella, the owner and his daughter are very nice and helpful, they treat us like nobody in the whole SriLanka. I highly recommend this place.

We spent in this lovely guesthouse only one night. The room and the bathroom were clean. For the breakfast we had traditional local food and it was big portion and delicious. The guesthouse is near to centre of Ella.

Me and my family had a lovely stay at the rock face. The helpfull owner arranged a lot in the neighbourhood for us. The place is just a one minute walk from the main street and area. With this distance it makes it a quiet and vibrant place where you can chill or hang with other travelers. And the breakfast...

More good than very good. This BnB is run by a very shrewd business woman and unfortunately her business 'sense' detracts from the potential of her establishment. + great location ..

We were referred here from another guest house near Adams peak. Finding the place was a little tricky at first but it is in a very central part of town. The host is very welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. There are great views of little Adams peak and Ella rock. The price of the room is...
