Hotel Country Comfort
Ranked #9 of 11 Hotels in Ella
Reviewed February 12, 2012

I really don't like to write it because the people working there were so nice but the room was not really clean. My husband had a allergic reaction when we stayed there. We didn't dare to use the pillows. We didn't notice at first but it could be cleaner.
Food was oke! Not special but tastefully.
It is quiet. There is not a great view but if your lucky the local school plays cricket. Which is very nice. It is near the train station.

We stayed one night in the old part of the hotel, cheaper than the new one (aroud 40 USD if I remember well).
The room was charming, and comfortable (especially the bathroom).
The staff was very nice.
We did not have diner there.
It is quite, as not located on the main road.
We would come back.

we stay here for a night. the hotel looks cute on the outside. room is big but needs improvement (some cracks on the wall) bathroom is ok but the black toilet bowl gives us the impression that its not clean.

we came back from dinner in the evening and realised that there was no hot water! as it was a bit late and we were already in the shower, we didn't complaint to the manager. however, we dropped him an email that night that we were disappointed that basic hotel services were not available. (p.s. ella is hill country is temp at night is quite chilly!)

next morning, the manager met us at the breakfast area and didnt say anything. when we check out abt an hour later. he has the cheek to ask 'u sent me an email right'? we replied yes. he then gave us the receipt and make us pay 6000rp plus 600 service charge!

ok hotel but bad impression.

Just to put this review in perspective, the photos on the Villa's website are gorgeous but they still don't quite do it justice...it really is a small piece of paradise nestled in Ella.. If you are looking for a relaxing few days away from all the stresses of life then this is place for you. The rooms are comfortable, spacious and kept meticulously clean. They all look out over the beautiful garden and there is just the right combination of sun and shade to suit your needs at any given time of day. Also, since the rooms all face in towards the garden you're guaranteed to meet your neighbors, an eclectic mix of Brits, French, Auzzies, Germans and Yanks. Breakfast is served every morning and its delicious and healthy with an emphasis on fresh local fruits. Wine, beer and cocktails are available whenever the mood strikes you.As well as the lunch n dinner as per your choice .

The staff are simply exceptional, we had the pleasure to meet Mr FErnando , the owner while we were there and he's a wonderful man, gregarious, charming and quite funny! He also knows a good deal about the island of Sri LaNka , its history, traditions and culture and can recommend day trips and excursions in the surrounding area that will suit your itinerary. They will also arrange trasnport for you . While we were there MR FERNANDO was kind enough to organize a day trip to NUWARA ELIYA and to the nearby temples of which were spectacular.

The only thing to be aware of is that the boutique is located in the countriside so if you intend to plan a very active vacation and see many of the sights you should plan to use it as your home base and then arrange day trips from there. They also have bicycles on hand should you like to take a drive thru the country. Highly recommended

The hotel is located below the train station. To get there, take the path on the left side when leaving the station. Unfortunately we didn't arrive by train because the train was 4 hours late or so in Nanu Oya so we took the minibus. This hotel lacks a view on the Ella gap. To enjoy the Ella Gap drink tea in the garden of the Grand Ella Motel (The Grand Elle motel has a great location but a rude staff). Ella is a nice and quiet village with luckily not so much traffic. There a some restaurants, shops and bars on easy walking distance from the County Comfort Inn. The rooms were fine but nothing special. Staff was friendly, food was OK.

The hotel is located in a quiet place, not far from the train station.
The room was spacious, well equipped and clean.
Dinner was good but breakfast was poor in quality and choice.
