The Hotel is located in a quite area that is also not far from the busy city center. It is extremely easy to get to the city center . The private road which the Hotel is situated on is secluded and pretty. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The managers are easy to talk to and always keen for your feedback of your experience at the hotel. The room was spacious, clean with a very good WIFI signal for when i needed to access the internet. The bathroom was very modern spec and also very clean. The hotel itself is picturesque, well maintained and has a very relaxed vibe. The food was outstanding. The head chef speaks to each guest and gauges exactly what it is you would like to eat . I was never disappointed with any of the food served and could not believe how good the food was ! I will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Colombo and would recommended the Hotel to anyone who requires a calm and peaceful location of a high service standard.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Ellen's Place was named after Ellen Senanayake - the youngest child of Mudaliyar Don Charles Gemoris Attygalle and his wife Peternella Abeykoon. Ellen Senanayake contributed much to Ceylon's independence struggle, being the supportive wife of F. R. Senanayake, one of the post independence national heroes who propelled the Independence movement. Ellen Senanayake, who at one point owned all the houses and land down Shady Grove Avenue in Colombo 8, built a house for her personal physician who was expected to live there and treat her and other members of her family. Years later, the house was inherited by her great grandson Hon. Vasantha Senanayake, a young and dynamic parliamentarian who decided to convert the beautiful house to a modern boutique hotel, yet retaining some features of its original decor. He decided to name the property "Ellen's Place" in memory of his great grandmother, an ardent Buddhist, generous Philanthropist, astute businesswoman and a devoted mother to her six children. ... more less
