Reviewed 13 November 2011

after staying 7 (!!!) nights in this pleasant environment, I would recommend this place with a nice wooden terras and restaurant. Doing very good food and good travel information by the owner himself. Very important is of course de free WIFI en de use of the computers of the hotel with fast internet and Skype. You feel home away from home.

Used Ella Holiday Inn for most of our eating & drinking, whilst staying in this lovely town. The food was great & cheap, the same with the beer, cheap & cold. Also looked in the kitchen & it was spotless as were the bathrooms. Really enjoyed the curries.

We were caugh on the road just after getting down from the bus, by a little man with moustache offering us a double room for 1000Rs, low season. It was for us the first time in SriLanka with Hot water in the Shower, GREAT..... The place is clean and Tidy and the staff is there to help, guiding for hikes and other things to see arround. We appretiated our stay there. It proximity form the main road makes it a little noicy during the day, but nights are quiet, it is the same for most places in this village. The brand New Terrasse offer a great place to eat and for all budgets, first price the traditional "rice and curry" for 270Rs. Right in the center of the shops and other Guest House, one is beeing currently built on the other side of the road....

Room Tip: Allways hask to see the room before saying YES....

We stayed in a quad room in this hotel, which is located on the main road of Ella. Do book through the internet to get better rates as we were overcharged when we just walked in and took a room. The location was central and there were no steep climbing on battered roads, but there was a lot of noise on the road which kept on disturbing us. The room had tasteful decor. It was airy but it had no air conditioning. The bathroom en suite was spotless. The service of the hotel was rather slow. There was internet access in the hotel foyer. We got free parking and driver stay.

Room Tip: Get rooms on the back of the hotel to avoid the road noise.
