We have been in ella highest inn for thee nights. The room was very big and clean. You have to do a little climb but is was worth it. The owner was very friendly. Hè helped us with everything and offered us a free meal. It is a nice stay especially for backpackers

The room is ok. We booked there because all the other place were full. Difficult to access but close to the railway station. No tuk tuk wants to drop you there as it is at the top of a hill. You walk up to the hotel with some difficulty. Close to Main Street and restaurants.

We tried to connect to the hotel host but he only answered the night before we arrived and wanted to get more money...

The room was small but ok. We had a good breakfast. Hard to get to the hotel as you need to walk with the backpack on your back on a path going up the hill and it was raining and thus a bit muddy. No tuk tuk goes up there. The view is not really like in the pictures. There...

Ella Highest Inn is a peaceful retreat just a short walk from town, with basic but functional accommodations. The breakfast of eggs, toast, fruit, and tea was delicious! I'm giving this place 3 stars because of the owner. While I found his wife to be extremely pleasant and helpful, I cannot say the same about the husband. When I arrived...

Really nice building in a pretty nice location close to Ella Main Street. But the hill to the guest house is v steep and dark, so take a torch. Bathroom was a shambles, room basic but ok, and some of the photos are mis leading - there's now a collection of hotels where there used to be nice jungle. Owners...
