This town was probably our least favourite on our Sri Lanka and the story is similar with the hotel.
The room was pretty basic and dirty, with rock solid beds. The whole place came across as unclean and basically ugly. Other reviews suggest it reminded them of home (England) and that it was a good stay which is why we chose to stay there. However it was far from this in my opiniom and just simply looked out of place in Sri Lanka - it wasn't even particularly English.
The only real positive was the staff were very friendly, particularly the manager. Living in the clouds its difficult to make a place like this nice.
The breakfast was OK which is what you'd expect from a place like this.
Overall I would not recommend staying here or even the town. It seemed a bit edgy at night and also too cold! Ella looked much nicer.
