Hotel Alta Vista
Ranked #7 of 11 Hotels in Ella
Reviewed 10 April 2012

Being set back from the main road and up a hill it is very quiet here and has great views from the balcony. We had a triple which was more than adequate for a family of four. Everything worked and the bathroom was nice. Sadly no wifi. Right in the centre of Ella so an easy walk for hiked out legs to all the eateries.

Hotel Alta Vista is affordable good hotel to stay in Ella. Rooms were clean and has more space.
The view from the balcony is nice but it is not the Ella Gap view as displayed in their website. So if you are expecting to see the view from your room don't book this hotel.

Staff were friendly , food was grate its a nice and happy stay their at Hotel Alta Vista.

Excellent property. Has been recently renovated. Situated on the hillside it is located in a prime area of Badulla. A little far from the Bandarawela town, but amazing to stay if your looking for some peace and quite. I like the view from the top floor.

Absolute rip off - no wonder they ask for a 50% deposit on booking. If they didn't they'd go broke! What happened to the roof garden and bar, looking out to the waterfalls? The place doesn't have a license to sell alcohol, there is no roof garden, it's nothing more than a back packers place, which is okay, but not if you've been sold something else. Avoid at all costs.

We arrived on Christmas Eve for a three day stay in Dec 2010; it is situated in the middle of Ella (albeit up a very steep slope!) which suited us perfectly as it was close to all the restaurants. The hotel is modern and isn't the most characterful but on the plus size the room was a very good size, clean and the bathroom was great - enormous and lots of really hot water - something that was missing from most places we stayed in Sri Lanka. Our room had two double beds and one single, the double beds weren't quite the size of a double bed in the UK so my husband and I were a little crushed.

We had coffee/fruit juices each morning but other than that did not have any food here so can't comment on the quality.

All in all a pleasant place to stay, we would recommend.

Small guest house with 11 rooms in the small town of Ella. Stopped over on our way too Kandy for 1 night only. Room was spacious and clean and the views from the balcony are just amazing. Restaurant serves limited but good food and the service is exactly what you need.
