Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 April 2014

The owner and his staff were friendly and efficient.
The cabin was beautifully situated to the rear of the main house,the bed mattress was thin but it was immediately doubled up. The walls of the bungalow were thin and you could hear what the neighbours were up to......beware!
The food was home cooked and delicious. Cakes made a regular appearance at most meals including breakfast!
The owner spoke good English and gave us some excellent walking routes.

They have two lovely log cabins. the floor of the cabin is made of wood and cement . All the walls except for bathroom are made of wood. You get the feeling that you are staying in a true log cabin. Cabin, wash room very clean and having hot water. Mosquito nets are provided but we hardly notice them in our stay.

Located very close to Ella town , only a few meters away from Ella junction. Behind the cabin you will find a thick forest of pine trees. Its a nice view and make you relax.There are lot of scenic places close by and the owner is so helpful in providing the information and directions to those locations.

Little folly provide good food at reasonable price. They are famous for moist cakes . We had the opportunity of tasting their chocolate cakes.

Room Tip: They have two log cabins , the one on to your right is better than the other.

Little folly have lovely log cabins with big rooms and clean bathrooms. It is a short walk to the restaurants and cafes. We had a great stay here the only problem we had was we needed help to get a bus and no one there at the time spoke English which was quite difficult! Apart from that it was great and we would recommend it.

This is a little cake shop located at the very end of Ella village with a large sign 'Moist Cake'. We didn’t know about this place but thought we would try it. We bought two pieces of cake – chocolate and lemon. They were quite expensive in Sri Lanka terms (140 rupees per piece). The cake is definitely moist so they have lived up to what they claimed to be!

We stayed here for 3 nights after the great reviews found on tripadvisor. On arrival we were expecting cake, but where not given any :( but had to order and pay for it.
The cabin were really nice, though the walls between the 2 are paper thin. The Owner did draw a map for a walk around the region, and it was quite nice.
The Owner asked us if we wanted to visit a tea factory, and he said there was one he would recommend. He said he called them first to see if they where working, and they said yes, but upon arrival found out the factory was not working as the day before was a public holiday and no picking was done. The tour was still good, though we where unable to appreciate the full experience.
On leaving here, there was a 10% surcharge on the bill for the included breakfast's, as he said the service charge was not included, which is the first time we have come across this despite having had breakfast included at every other place.
Overall a nice place, but did not live up to the reviews given.

Room Tip: go for the log cabin over the standard room.

This is a great place to stay in Ella. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The home cooked food is also fantastic. The location is great very close to little Adams peak. The owner is extremely friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

If Ella is a little corner in Sri Lanka, Little folley is a little Corner in Ella. Slightly apart from the rest but on the way to Little Adam's Peak, it has two gorgeous cottages made of wood and surrounded by flowers. The rooms are extremely clean and you get a welcome juice and cake when you check-in. Both are not to be missed as the guesthouse has a reputation for being the best cake shop in town.
