On arrival, we were greeted by the staff who were great. Laid back and helpful. Downside was firstly the "welcome drink" that had tap water added and laid me flat for eight days after. The rooms needed a good clean and the toilet could only be flushed if u lifted the cistern lid. The sheets were grey and stained and... More

Most of the small villas have a single room. The views are nice. There is no air-con. Not good to leave the windows open as there are mosquitoes and insects. However the room cooled in the night. Still, if there are screens on the windows or doors, some fresh air would be very nice. Exterminate 2 big cockroaches in the... More

We only were booked in for one night and I wished we had more time. This guest house is situated a bit outside of Ella on a hill. The villa had a big terrace outside which opened up into the tea plantation. We had our early tea there and enjoyed the fantastic view. We were welcomed in the afternoon.

First of all the positives: this place does have the most absolutely stunning views, and from your bed in a very spacious room, you look out past a balcony to an unforgettable panorama. Staff are very friendly and breakfast, although the same every day, is delicious, with some fresh fruit, eggs and coffee. On initial impression, the room was amazing,... More

This development comprises 7 bungalows set in an amazing setting some 6 km from Ella but sadly these bungalows are very poorly maintained. Many items just did not work and the rooms are not cleaned each day with you having to ask for clean towels. Food was very overpriced for what it was. Cooking classes were offered but at 3,000...
