Stopped here for one night. The food was great but they had real coffee!! So hard to find in Sri Lanka.
Staff were great and the room was beautiful. Stayed in the 1 bedroom with its own lounge and balcony at the rear. Excellent value.

We enjoyed the stay in this renovated hotel. Rooms are very spacious and clean. The restaurant is serving more western food, so we had pizza after 8 days of only rice and curry. The only thing is that the service is pretty slow.

Very nice, clean and spacious rooms! Good rain shower with warm water. The cafe is nice, with good western style food (try the pizza: delicious!). The service was a little bit sloppy, but as Samintha (owner) told us this was caused by the holiday period (sinhalese new year). However, this changed immediately when Samintha was back from his new years celebration..

A very good place to stay when visiting Ella, good location for hiking to both little Adam's Peak as Ella Rock (we arranged a guide via Dream Cafe, was very good).

definitely recommended.

Stayed here for one night in March. Room was large, clean and simply decorated with a Good bathroom and great shower. Comfortable bed. We slept well, although it was a little bit noisy in the morning as the guest house is on the main road in Ella

Friendly staff and great food in the lovely garden cafe. Overall it was good value.

Very happy with our stay, only thing to note is that lots of people come to Ella for the stunning views which you cant see from this B&B as it is in the centre of town.

Had a lovely two night stay, well located, fantastic food and clean and spacious rooms. Sam was very accomodating especially with our three year old. Little Adam`s Peak is accessible via foot from the guesthouse. Sam also advised us of thee best Tea Factory to visit, accesible via tuk tuk. We can highly recommend the Dream Guesthouse, especially with children.

Love the cafe ambience & food, good & reasonable...room was well design but need to maintain the cleanliness as the bed sheet was dusty & saw a cockroach staying with us for two nights. Location was great right at the center of the town.

Right in the centre of Main St., really central, but doesn`t have the great views that outlying guest-houses have. Yes, it is noisy, dogs and traffic in the small hours, but in every other way, it makes the grade. Excellent large modern rooms, some with separate living room, wonderful bathrooms, good lighting, universal sockets and a lockable drawer. Narrow balcony where you can sit with a drink and watch the world go by. Food fair to good, if rather more international than local. A prawn cocktail in a coconut (naff, I know) was so large that two of us couldn't finish it ($3) All beautifully and very professionally presented. Licenced, which not too many places are. Staff friendly and very efficient.
