“Great location. Great place”
Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

You will probably meet Sumitra, the landlady, at the station. Lovely smiling lady. Hop into a tuk tuk and head for her guest house situated in a pretty garden with her own tea bushes. Rooms are simple but clean. Large bathrooms with hot showers but the water pressure is very low. Easy walk into town (6minutes) and close to the start of Little Adams. Good home cooked meals and you can join in while she cooks. Very helpful with advice about the local area including buses and trains. She also has a mini bus for hire if you want to go further afield.

Sumitra makes her place a real pleasure, it's just outside the centre of Ella, well place for Little Adam's Peak
She prepared a fine supper and breakfast and everyone eats communally which was a really lovely polyglot evening when we were there
Lovely birds in the garden (including a metallic black-red woodpecker)
One small thing
I don't think it ever gets dry in Ella - it's jungly and humid and hence things do not dry, hence one thing that may improve the room is using "hammam style" towels (made of thick sheeting rather than towelling as these could dry better?)

One of the most hospitable guesthouses of Sri Lanka. Sumitra (the owner) is very kind and willing to help you with everything.

Rooms are clean. Due to the weather it was unfortunatly a bit humid in the room.

The guest house is a 5 min walk from the centre.

Situated in very quiet area with Tea garden. Reasonable rates, The Manager Sumitra is kind and very helpful so does her mother next door. We even got free Mangoes from her. This is the only hotel we got free TEA in the morning-true Sri Lankan hospitality. (Most of the Restaurents around Ella hasTourist price menu items-too high for some-)
