Nice an quite place to stay in Ella where you cannot find big hotels. Great views and good breakfasr. Room quite big with a simple bthroom but confortable. Views from room are great! We only stay one noght no time to gete in touch with the family also due to the poor English spoken. Good experience however.

This hotel was stunning, the views were out of this world and the rooms were perfect! Check-in was a little confused and communication was a struggle but the family who run the hotel are very smiley and try hard to understand the guests needs. Location is good and it was definitely the best place to stay to get those views!...

Wow what a spectacular view from this perfect little hotel. OK, so not all staff speak English, get over it you are in Sri Lanka, should make your stay even more fun. The rooms are clean, large and comfortable. If you want five star luxury go to 98 Acres but you wont get the personal touch, the home made food...

Great wifi, hot showers and delicious food made to order. The curry and rice dinner option was great - seven small dishes and a huge bowl of rice. Friendly, helpful staff. Very...

Charming helpful attentive and patient staff and mangers. Great place to contemplate mountains and peace and quiet. Breakfast on the upper deck a highlight. A fridge and a little more space on our balcony keeps this to very good.

We stayed for 3 nights at this charming little hotel. The owners and staff were so friendly and made us feel so welcome. The Sri Lankan curry and rice was wonderful! And we loved the breakfast with the view of Ella Gap :-) Room clean and spacious. Highly recommended! Thank you.

The hotel is up the hill but still close the the city center of Ella..It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk. The rooms are nice with a balking and the view great! sheets are clean, breakfast is delicious- you get it on the rooftop while you see the Ella rock, unfortunately it's always fully booked, so book it on time!...
