I definitely like the natrual view that Justin front of my room. The breakfast is good, nice staff. Don't take their recommendation for the massage place, the air ventilation in the room is not good, cos thee is no window

Our stay was absolutely wonderful. We started off by booking two days but ended staying there for 5 days. The scenary was incredible and the staff was really kind and helped us arrange tours and find small markets. The chef cooks the best rice and curry :-)

      Come for view, stay for hospitality. ”
      The view is great, anyone will realize that immediately. Then highlight of the time in Ella was staying here. Engaged, happy staff. Tasty food. Only areas for improvement is the wifi, which was useless. Also, the room locks were flimsy. I had my own sim card with a data plan and found the property to be in a secure area and wasn't worried about the locks. Would stay again.

      Amazing view and awesome breakfast”
      Ella's Edge is perfect in so many ways. The view is incredible, the food is amazing, especially breakfast. The chef is so lovely and comes to all the tables to explain the food and make sure everyone is satisfied and happy. In fact all the staff are very friendly and helpful. My room was very basic ( could do with a bit of a renovation), however I do believe some rooms have been done up. A little out of town ( 1 km at the most) but that is a positive because you can get away from the Main Street bustle. Would recommend this place for the view alone. Thank you Ella's Edge

      Wake to an awesome view”
      The view was amazing when we woke first morning: mountains valleys and sunrise right outside your doorstep with cool fresh air. Breakfast was delicious. Think only 8 rooms so quite private experience. Front desk elder male staff wasn't looking very friendly though he fulfilled our request. Like that we can start Ella Rock trek directly from this place. We like the location is slightly away from the buzz and 5-10min walk though u need a phone /torch cos complete darkness.

      Breathtaking Views & Delicious Meals in Ella”
      Amazing Views, Delicious Food and Comfortable Stay
      We absolutely loved our stay here! The views, direct from our rooms and from the restaurant balcony, are one of the best you can find in Ella - facing Little Adam's Peak and Ella Gap/Rock. We had a warm welcome from the friendly staff, who made our stay special. The food, cooked fresh for each meal, and a daily changing breakfast menu was extremely delicious. Highly recommended to try meals here, esp the mixed fried rice. Our only drawback is that it is a short intense uphill hike to the main town area - maybe 15 mins, and sometimes many insects after dark. But the views more than make up for this. Highly recommended.

      We absolutely loved the views of Ella Rock and Little Adam's Peak - both from floor to ceiling windows and from outside dining area. Very convenient to walk into Ella but not necessary because the dinner is amazing - one of the best Sri Lankan curries we had. Breakfast also delicious. Only problem was flying insects (including wasps) in the bathroom but the staff were very helpful - they moved us to another room.

      Cross between a hostel and hotel”
      The view is unrivalled and is absolutely fantastic through Ella's gap. Mosquito nets are supplied and are useful. The staff are lovely and we had a great time playing Carrom with them. This is great value for money as it is very cheap. The electrical system is really bad here so be very careful when operating light switches and plugging anything valiable. in to charge. We also experienced a power cut for a good few hours so take torches for sure. Staff put out candles which was nice. The bed really needs better linen and pillows and the bed cannot have been cleaned under for months as it was so dusty. Your driver may not take you up the track to it, as the entrance road is a steep unmade track. Could be a top top hotel with a few little changes.

      The best day view of Ella Gap, with little Adam and Ella rock. Night sky full of stars, you wish for black out to see more stars. My room #1 was budget, basic: bed, shower, wifi. TV not working. No kettle. No bottled water. Rice and curry yummy, value for money, all cooked on the spot by the friendly chef, hence the 45 min wait for dinner.

      What can i say, location alone was beautiful, a paradise away from the city and swarms of people. The hotel, where do i start... not a fault in sign from the very first step of that taxi the staff was so welcoming taking our bags, offering us a beverage and a hot towel we stayed in alot of places in Sri Lanka this topped them all. In service, staff moral, and food! The food itself was incredible. The rooms clean, comfortable, and you sure did feel safe! Lets just say i have nothing bad to say, the host made us feel welcome and there rottis are incredible :) From James & Kate

But other than that, there is nothing much to say abt this hotel. Our deluxe room is big but old..and no hot water in our room!! We gotta shower with cold freezing water in this cold weather and then i caught a cold the next day.. :( told the owner abt this and she said she will ask someone to fix it.. well good luck for the next person staying :p well at least they provide generous local breakfast.. overall it's not a bad stay.

      Ella's Edge Resort makes a good first impression with its large, modern, clean building with an absolutely stunning view of Ella gap. The accommodation itself is fairly standard and rooms 1-4 offer a full view. Avoid room 5 if possible!! It is much pokier and the view is through a smaller window. I was initially put in there and although I wasn't able to be moved the first night, the staff were very accommodating in moving me the next day. The staff were tremendously friendly and helpful and the breakfast was absolutely delicious - especially the hoppers and sambal! The location is also an easy walk into town whilst still being afforded the famous view.

      A hidden gem!”
      Location, food, cleanliness
      I had a fantastic time at Ella's Edge Resort. I was traveling alone and the staff did all they could to make sure I was comfortable. Everyone was extremely nice and the food was amazing. The cook at the hotel is named Amarawonsc and he makes an excellent curry that changes each day. The kitchen is out in the open and you can peer over the edge and watch to see how they prepare it. One night Amarawonsc invited me down to the kitchen and gave me a lesson on curry cooking! He also makes a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast which was yummy. This hotel is about a 6-8 walk into the center of town. I like that its not in the heart of things so you can have the stunning views in peace and quiet and if you want to go out you're only a walk or a cheap tuktuk ride away. Out of all the hotels I stayed at in Sri Lanka this was the best value for what I paid. Please note that it is considered a 4-star hotel for Sri Lankan standards but it would not be a 4 star for western standards. The room was basic but clean and the view from my bed was incredible. The staff told me that the hotel was built about a year and a half ago which explains why everything seemed nice and new in the room. Thanks again, I will be back!

      The view is spectacular, the staff are lovely and v good at their job, the food is outstanding
      We had only one night at Ellas Edge but could have stayed longer - the view alone was worth an extra night or two - but also the staff were excellent and the food outstanding. We had the Sri Lankan curry for dinner and it was delicious, very fresh and tasty. The room we had was upstairs and was clean, spacious and perfectly comfortable. In terms of location, the hotel is about seven minutes by tuktuk down the hill from Ella railway station, so, very handy. The village of Ella itself is five minutes away, and for the intrepid hiker, there are plenty of beautiful walks in the area. Good little hotel in a stunning part of the world - and excellent value for money.

      2 night stay at Ella's edge resort ”
      Staff, location, view
      We stayed two nights. The room was okay, it had full floor to ceiling Windows/door with curtains, which had a great view but was where everyone else's room was, so you couldn't relax in the room with the curtains open as everyone would walk past and look at you inside. The bed was comfortable. The general staff were lovely and always greeted you with a huge smile. However the manager/owner was not so friendly. On our last day to check out we went to Hortons plains and not realising how long it would take us to get back to the hotel, mistakingly arrived back at 1pm instead of 12pm (check out time). The manager was waiting outside the front of the hotel and yelled at us as soon as we opened the car door, despite our multiple apologies that it was an accident and we would be out within 5 minutes. He never apologised for having a go at us.
