“View and food were great, the room....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

This place has magnificent view, and the welcoming staffs and the food were terrific too. I just wasn't so keen on the bed room, it's big enough, but rather old and worn out. Insects from outside flying in, the bathroom is like a eco-system for them, the window was broken so I could not shut them out. While sleeping, I noticed some "lights" were flying around, was a little frighten thinking it was a visitor from the twilight zone (lol), turned out to be some fire flies visiting my room, well that was a unique experience. One night in there is more than enough.

Room Tip: You must try and shut all the windows in order not to have flying insects into your room

On a recent trip to Sri Lanka, we stayed at this charming hotel. The view was spectacular. The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. The food was some of the best we had in Sri Lanka. If staying in Ella, this is worth staying at and it is reasonable in price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the front with a view of the mountains.

High above the town, this guesthouse has the most magnificent view. The rooms are pretty basic but adequate. Unfortunately we were there over the new year period and had power blackouts for a large majority of the 2 days, plus the noisy men that sat up all night drinking and smoking didn't help. All this of course no fault of the guesthouse.
The staff are great and very hardworking. Breakfast is basic but dinner was delicious. Great curry. For those that like a drink be forewarned. They do not serve alcohol so bring your own.
The gardens are very pretty with lots of birds. You can probably get nicer places in Ella but this is reasonable for the price and the view...wow

The view here is absolutely breathtaking. After 4 days, hadn't got over how great it was. Amazing food, lovely staff and comfy, basic room (one whole wall was a giant window so we could enjoy the panoramic view the whole time) Thank you so much for an incredible stay!

Fabulous guest house, the owners take great pride in it and really look after it. We spent the evening sitting out side soaking up the view. Rooms are spotless, Food was perfect there was even an option for a western dinner for those of us tired of curry and dahl.

Room Tip: All rooms we occupied had balconies with beautiful views, I dont think theres a possibilty of a bad...

Lovely familyrun guesthouse. The views are gourgious, the food was good and the rooms big and clean. Though it is located some 5 minutes by car from the centre of Ella it was well worth that for the surroundings. You can start the trek to Ella Rock straight from the guesthouse.
