We stayed three days at Ella Guesthouse and we really enjoyed it. The rooms were amongst the nicest and cleanest on our trip. Mattresses and bath rooms are also in great condition. There is a great view towards the Ella Rock from the balcony and the restaurant. The food was the best we had in Sri Lanka. The family who runs this cozy place is very warm and helpful. Amongst others they helped us a lot with the organizing of our further trip in Sri Lanka. The only thing we were dissatisfied with was the laundry service – staff seems to be quite unexperienced in this regard. Apart from that we had a great stay there and would definitely go there again.

We travelled to Ella by train last month. Unfortunately the train was late (something to do with wet tracks and wheels slipping - what to do). We had pre-booked the Sun Top Inn stating that we would be arriving from Colombo by train, which was a good idea, said the owner. I think we got to the guest house about 9:00 pm. I asked if there was somewhere to get a meal, to which the owner said that although the kitchen was closed, he would be delighted to make us a Sri Lankan curry and 2 club sandwiches - perfect. And it tasted good too.
The next day we went on a hike up little Adam's Peak - the owner told us how to get there and what to expect - view wise - it was marvellous - what a view. The owner then let us use his van and driver to travel on to Nuwara Eliyia at a very reasonable rate.

Room Tip: Top floor in the front - nice view.

beautiful Guesthouse in a central location with rooms in different categories-depending on the view. however there are accommodations in Ella more beautiful views. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff and the operator were very nice. Trips can be booked here, but we didn't use. Because you can in Ella and surroundings a lot on your own undertake and hikes. The food was excellent. The chef was extremely friendly and inquired always, whether it tasted good. We could watch it in the cook. Ella is quite small and well arranged, there are several other restaurants and bars.

The rooms look nice and are very clean. We had a big balcony with a bench with a beautifull vieuw over Ella. The owner and staff are really going out of their way to make you feel at home. The breakfast is huge and delicious. Especially the fresh shakes are genius. They have mountainbikes that you can take out for free. Its right next to the main street in Ella. Overall a very nice place to stay.

This guesthouse is very cosy and with a nice homely ambience. They can arrange anything for you and they will do everything in their power to make your stay pleasant.
The rooms seem to vary in size - some are very small. But clean!
They serve good food.
There might be some morning noise from the police station, when they are having their morning training and exercise.

Room Tip: Try and ask for rooms on 1st floor just beside the restaurant area.

50 meters from the railway station, 50 meters from city center but away from the noisy road. What else ??
Very nice hotel, quiet, well decorated, with bedrooms that could be bigger. Beds are good and bathroom is clean.

Finally, a very positive comment. We had a better welcome in many other places, but nothing to complain
