The clean rooms are basic but have hot water, blankets and mosquito nets. The staff are friendly and we were even given a jar of their home made pickle to take with us. The real draw is the excellent restaurant. Food needs to be ordered well in advance but vegetarian curries were numerious and generous in size. Some of them the best we've tried in Sri Lanka. All round we had a fantastic experience and would definitely come back.

Excellent value for money! Cheap basic rooms with great views (balcony rooms). The curries are the best we have tasted so far in Sri Lanka!
In this point in time you are working on the construction of more rooms. Looking forward to know how this will look once completed.

Stayed 3 nights and ate in the restaurant each night - the reviews in the comments book are absolutely true - the food is AMAZING!!!!!! Fabulous flavours and excellent prices - it really was the best food we ate in our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka travelling extensively on the island. The food here is delicious and the staff VERY friendly and helpful!! Carpi the dog is a delight!!
Great value for money - good sized room, hot water, balcony.....checked out many other places in Ella and selected to stay here - good decision!!!!

Room Tip: quiet at night - just a stroll from the restaurant to the room - reasonably prices beer.

This hotel is in a great location and each room has a large balcony with a nice view. The rooms are really clean and the bathrooms are large. The curry was great and breakfast was good too. Do not be put off by the entrance into the hotel, this is great value for money.

The hotel is very good and comfortable. Nice rooms with good views over the hills, great staff. From the outside it looks a bit rough but the inside is completely different, which is a shame. The real highlight of the Rawana is the restaurant - unfortunately we only ate here on our last night, so couldn't come back again, but on hindsight I would have eaten here every night - fantastic curry here. The cost of the room was OK and food was reasonably priced too. It is a 10 minute walk up a big hill from the main town area, so if arriving by bus I would advise taking a tuktuk with your bags to the hotel. Highly recommended.
