As name suggests, the view is breathtaking. Take advantage of the roof terrace on top floor and great table for breakfast. Looking over ella rock and the train line. To get there, other than by tuk tuk, walk along the railway track (surprisingly common place in sri lanka) North (same direction as drive up to station) until the railway meets...

With a breathtakingly spectacular view, this bright, clean home-stay was just what we'd hoped for. We were lucky to have Rooms 1 and 2, with small balconies where we could watch the ever-changing weather sweep across the landscape. The walk to and from the centre of Ella isn't as daunting as it looks when you first arrive, up a steep,...

Just simply amazing! No pictures or descriptions will make the place justice. There are monkeys in the trees aswell as birds and squirrels. The breakfast is more then you can eat and served on the balkony with the brilliant view. We had the room in the back with no view over the mountins but loved it just as much anyway....

The views were great & the family even better! The family was so sweet and very helpful. It's very clean, organized and in a great location! The beds were comfortable and the balcony was a great place for breakfast and to just chill. I would highly recommend this place!

Arriving in the dark the night before, we awoke to the most stunning view and breakfast on the balcony that overlooks Little adams Peak and Ella Rock. The family are very friendly and welcoming and organised a taxi for us at very reasonable rates to get to Galle when we left. Its just out of town (1km) and its quite...

We arrived in Ella after dark after taking the train from Kandy. The hotel is relatively new and situated along the track at the back of the village - a track that is quite steep in places and has virtually no lights at all - so bring a torch. The view at the back is magnificent - you have Ella...

Loved this place, the view is brilliant as correctly stayed in the name. The owners are warm and friendly and very helpful. We had food cooked for us one night and it was delicious. The location is great too, you can walk into town in 15 minutes (but remember a torch) and you can walk along the railway tracks and...

Stayed 2 nights in the room, cute and clean. 10 min away from the town, I loved being totally lost into the jungle. Although we went for the cheaper room with no direct view on the mountains, every morning we had our breakfast on the terrace facing the mountains and waterfalls, seeing monkeys jumping just in front of us, truly...

We had booked 2 nights there, but as soon as we managed to find it (the owner promised us to put up new signs), we immediately decided to book a third night. Everything was clean and quite new. Warm water and Wi-Fi worked fine. The place is owned by a family that lives on the first floor and run by...

This homestay offers excellent value for money for those on a limited budget. Although the short access is very steep and 1 km from the centre of Ella, it's well worth the walk if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of Ella centre. It's set in a beautiful quiet location with views of the waterfall and hills beyond.The...
