“Good location run by a Lovely family”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Nelson, Ramesh and his family run this lovely 2 bedroom guest house just 5 minute walk from the pretty little tourist village of Ella. Nothing is too much trouble for Nelson from fixing my sandals to finding a beer supply on a hot Sunday arvo, he did it with a smile. He will draw you a map of the local walking trails and even has his own tuk- tuk for free pickups and drop offs to the bus/train stations.

We stayed 2 nights with Nelson in his guesthouse. We had a wonderful time in Ella. The guesthouse is close to everything.
We booked the room ringing Nelson 2 days in advance, and he pick up us from train station.
Rooms are nice and clean.
He draw a map of the Area, how to get to Little Adams Peak, a tea factory and to Nine Archs.
He´s very helpful and always available for a nice chat.

We had a wonderful time here and the owner, Nelson, support us in every step we did.
He have his own tuck tuck and he taking you (for free!!) to wherever you need inside the town.
Highly Highly recommended..close to the center of the city but still very secluded and quiet.

We had 2 nights stay in Freedom Guest Inn July 2013. We have been travelling around Sri Lanka for 3 weeks and this is by far the nicest and cleanest guest inn we have come across. Great location just a 5 minute walk from the main town, so at night time it's nice &peaceful in your room. Even better it is very close and easy to get to little Adams peak! Nelson and his family made us feel very welcome in their home, with a great breakfast every morning, tuk tuk rides and he was very helpful with information about Ella and onward journeys!!
If your on visiting Ella be sure to stay at freedom!!

Stayed in Freedom Guest House for two nights. The two rooms are new and immaculate and the guest house is close to the town centre and on the road to Little Adam's Peak - my favourite hike in Ella. Breakfast was very good. Recommended.

We recently visited Ella, intending to stay for two nights but ended up staying for three. Nelson, the owner, picked us up from the station in his white tuk tuk and took us to his house (with two gleaming guest rooms) which is about 5 minutes walk from the centre of town. We've been travelling for two months and this was without a doubt the best place we've stayed. The whole place was immaculate with a lovely terrace where Nelson served us breakfast every day. The food was great, we had rice and curry on our first evening there which was excellent. We would highly recommend staying here.
