A average guesthouse but with a view to remember. A clear view to little Adams peak as well as the big waterfall. Average breakfast - the hotel don't serve alcohol. Stayed only for one Night. Had dinner in the town, a nice place called Chill. Remember it's colder in this area than in the rest of the country.

Astonishing place to be for a couple of days; charming service and good food cooked to order so don't order at the last minute. Views are truly amazing and town has enough to offer for a short visit; railway station has good connections too. Food is usual non-gourmet Sri-Lankan fayre but lovingly prepared per order.

Views of Ella Rock and Ella gap are magnificent from all the rooms (with their individual terraces) and from the main restaurant & terrace at this small, simple guest house. The garden is pretty too. The rooms & bathrooms are simple, ours were not as clean as they could have been. One pair of rooms has an adjoining living room... More

This hotel best value is the view from the top of a hill, both from the rooms and facilities. The room are simple but clean, the garden will help you relax after the walk. Very good address to recommend at a very reasonable price

The Hotel deserves its name, fantastic view into the landscape. Rooms were quite small, but clean. No safe available. Bathroom was ok, but water pressure rather low. Dinner was nice, rice and curry tasted well. Waiter was a little bit short of words. To sum it up, amazing view, the rest fits to the cheaper price

Although up a steep hill, it is possible to walk to and from Ella if you don't fancy a tuk tuk. We stayed for two nights, and the main assets of the hotel are the view and the staff. Gorgeously breathtaking vistas of ella gap, and to see the famous sunrise you just need to sit on your patio. Food... More

Wow. Such a beautiful view and why we stayed here. The food was fine and the room was not expensive. Our bathroom did smell a little of drains though. On balance, it's a decent place to stay because it has a beautiful view and is low key/low impact on the area around it. I think some basic maintenance/painting could make... More
