“Private and clean”
Reviewed November 18, 2013 via mobile

We only spent one night here but it was very good. The owner is friendly and helpful, without being overbearing. He gave us travel tips and directions to walk up nearby Little Adam's Peak. He actually arrived at the train station to pick us up, but we didn't know he was coming so we walked! It's less than a kilometre from the station and we were happy to stretch our legs after the long train trip. The room was clean and comfortable, but it would have benefitted from a fan.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

Spotlessly clean rooms with an amazingly comfortable bed (double sprung mattress, a rare find in cheaper accommodation in Sri Lanka!) Rooms are a little small but this doesn't matter as there is a spacious dining/living room and outside patio for relaxing.

Nelson, the owner, is just a really nice guy. He gave us free rides in his tuk tuk, drew us maps and gave us extra breakfast to fuel us for the journey on the last day.

Rice and curry was very good here, as was breakfast. And best of all was the price - standard price is around 3500 but in low season we stayed for 2000rs including breakfast!

You can contact Nelson on 0716897778.

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!!
