“Very clean and Central”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The Room we stayed in was really clean and comfortable. You have all the bars and restaurants right in front of you while being in the most central spot of ella. It's a really nice place, also for eating, because the restaurant offers really good and delicious food.

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel a couple of nights and the staff was very friendly and the food was alright also, compared to Sri Lankan standard. I was travelling with a group and everyone in the group agreed that this place was really nice. Prices were average and the only thing we needed was aircondition - a minor thing.

Room Tip: If possible, then order a room with aircondition.

We went here in the offseason period in late May. We had been travelling in Sri Lanka for 30 days and this is one of the Best places we have stayed. Food was cheap and well-cooked and the rooms were big and nice, but the staff was the Best part of the hotel. Serviceminded and ready to help any time.

We stayed here for 1 night and had a great time. Beds are comfy, rooms are clean, but the best about that place is their food! We had a great, truly thin and crisp pizza, a burger and an amazing chicken breast with veggies (all was freshly prepared and truly yummy). Pizza was amazing even by western standards!! A must try

We chose Dream Cafe because of the excellent reviews but we were disappointed with the quality of the accommodation. Some lights didn't work, the mosquito net was littered with holes, the bathroom window didn't shut and there were lots of ants. We discussed these issues with the management and he was happy for us to pay less. Rs 5000 was very excessive for a more than basic room. It was pretty clean with a perfect location but not worth the 5000.
The restaurant at Dream is amazing though. Despite the very slow and simple service this was where I had the best food I had in Ella.

Reviewed 16 March 2014

We stayed here for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The vibe was chill, the rooms were large and spacious, the showers were awesome, the deck was sweet. The only problem was the barking dogs but this is Ella! I have no complaints, the price was right for right in the middle of town, considering the cleanliness and presentation.
Dream. Cafe also offers great meals, i strongly suggest their salad in a coconut shell. Pardon me for not remembering the exact name of the dish but it was over two weeks ago..however the staff will know what you mean or you will recognise it on the menu. Bon appetite!

We stayed here for two nights in February and enjoyed our time there. We had a room at the back and it was still a little noisy late and night and early in the morning. You should consider staying off the Main Street if this is a problem for you. The rooms were very good but the bed was a little too hard for my better half. The food was super in the cafe and service was very good.
