This is a simple basic, cheap, clean place that is good value for money. Its a house with rooms that has been coverted to a guest house. Its a short walk uphill from town. The owners are nice people and will go out of the the way to help you in your need ( directions, suggestions, food selction, sites around ella etc). My bed was hard with average pillows, I made sure that I closed all the windows in the evening so that the mosquitoes stayed out.
A suprise for me was the well maintained tennis court. The road into the compound is a mud road with potholes, they provide accomodation for your driver which is nice.
Cynthia and her son were very prompt in email and helped is all the way. The food ( breakfast) was nice but nothing out of the oridinary for Sri Lankan guest house. There seemed to be a lot of fruit but they were all semi-ripe or un eatable ( maybe the wrong selection of fruit for the season). Over all a well above average place and a quite and reasonable retreal for a long stay but not really my kind of hotel -- I missed my fluffy pillows & soft bed
