We stayed here one night. The staff was friendly and very efficient. The hotel is very popular and fully booked so rooms are turned over very quickly. The front courtyard had wonderful views which we were only able to see in the morning since it was raining the evening we arrived and the cloud covering completing blocked the view. We...

Stayed one night which was relaxing with great views. We orders tea not really expecting much and wow what a marvellous meal. This would be the very best Sri Lankan meal we have eaten in two weeks. Room was new and hot water worked well. View from our bed.

We stayed for 2 nights here in Dec and enjoyed our stay. The view is amazing! Room was comfortable and was such a treat to wake up in the morning with the view of Ella Rock. Breakfast was also good. Dinner option was not great so we only ate there once and had our other meals in Ella town while...

My wife and I stayed here for two nights over Christmas when exploring Ella. The rooms are ok but could do with a bit of a refurb. The hot water was not very good and we only had slightly warm showers. We can look past that though as the view from our room was great. You could view Ella Rock...

We stayed 2 nights and had a large room with TV and ensuite bathroom. Didn't feel to clean but okay (room was not made during our stay). Owner and team were very friendly and helpful, dinner and breakfast were as expected (I stick to Sri Lankan dishes and therefore never get disappointed), even string hoppers and kiribat (milkrice) were provided...

We spent two nights last Sep 2015. The staff is very friendly, the food is simple, traditional and very delicious. We especially liked the Sri Lankan breakfast. The rooms will need little refurbishment but it really doesn't matter when you are at a place like this. The view from your balcony and the garden are the best experience in this...

Just came back from a 4 nights stay at this "hotel" Place is clean, well maintained, rooms was ridiculous big and had a terrace with heaven view!!! Breakfast was also good. This place is just missing a mini bar inside room and a better (more attentive) cleaning team. Ill definitely go back if visiting Ella again
