We really liked this guesthouse. It was made especially good by the fantastic Sri Lankan meals we had cooked by Vinesh, they came with lots of different curries to try. You have to book the meal in advance so that they can go to the market and buy the food,it was fresh, delicious and cooked just for us, Yum! The... More

We arrived late in the day having not booked ahead but our guide knew the owners so he hoped it would be okay. We found that they only had three rooms left, two triples and a double. The first triple (that we gave to Imam) was out the front and it was the size of a generous living room. The... More

We stayed four persons in a double room which was very big and clean. Two big mosquito nets covering both beds. The staff provided us with an extra mattress so if you need anything just ask. The mattress didn't come with extra mosquito net, but they might have one. We could borrow cutlery etc. from the kitchen without problems, as... More

One part of this guest house is an old colonial bungalow which used to be known as the Scottish house as it belonged to a Scottish tea planter. The main hall is fantastic, very worn and old fashioned, but commanding a lovely view of the Rock. We had the front double room in the old part with a wide veranda... More

This guest house did not measure up to the description in Rough Guide/ Lonely Planet. There was no evidence of recent refurbishment in the original house where we stayed.we had booked directly by telephone and had not agreed a price beforehand. When we arrived and checked the price against the booking.com price we realised we had been quoted almost 2000... More

Rock View provided an excellent location in the small village of Ella with only a short walk to the main Street (opposite side from the station) and walk to Little Adams Peak. Ella is developing fast with many new guest houses under construction, these are spread out and on maps can appear close, but are actually positioned on the hillside... More

The view is truly stunning. There are so many options here but I really would recommend people check out Rock View. The staff here have been lovely; very laid back and helpful when we needed it. The bed could be more comfortable, I'm close to 6ft and my feet hang off, but not something that would stop me coming back.... More

We stayed here for two nights. Rock View is located at the center of the village, great view of Ella Rock. Also, a landmark of starting point to Ella Rock. The size of the room can fit in at least three persons, nice varanda for all rooms that enable you to view Ella Rock. However, the wifi is rather slow.

We have been here the second time. The family is very friendly and helped us if nessesary. The Rooms are clean. The Bathroom has cold and warm water and you have a moskito net. You can eat good food not expensive. (Leckeres Reis und Curry, nicht so scharf gewuerzt oder so wie gewuenscht).
