"We stayed here for 3 nights during our time in Sri Lanka. It’s slightly out of town and a tuk tuk or moped is needed to get to and from town and the key attractions. This is outweighed by the lovely views and quiet location that the hotel offers and we were glad we chose to stay here rather than in the noisy town. The hotel even arranged the moped for us for a good price and a tuk tuk to Ella station on our last day there. They also prepared us breakfast on the lovely terrace outside our room each day which was great. The only downside was that our room was damp and had a damp smell to it. "

"Manju and family were very friendly and helpful. Food was good - ask for Sri Lankan breakfast not western. Location is stunning, although the short walk to town along a trail was a bit precarious in wet weather, and with a toddler. Tuk tuk pick up service helpful. Views of Ella's rock beautiful. Rooms clean and basic although our room was not cleaned during our 3 night stay. Pillows are miniature, and blankets small, so sleeping not fully comfortable. Balcony/ porch outside room with hammock was lovely. "

"This hotel is located in the most amazing jungle - far from Ella town, but right on a river. Unfortunately, our daughter was sick so we had to check out before being able to walk to the waterfall or do any of the activities the resort has to offer. The hotel generously gave us a full refund, even though we were not entitled to one and helped us out in our time of need. Big thumbs up!"

"Hotel OnRock was at the more expensive end of my accommodation selection in Sri Lanka, but I was not disappointed. I needed to use the business facilities during my stay, and no request was too difficult for the brother and sister team who manage the hotel. My laundry was done in less that 24 hours. The room was clean, had a very comfortable bed, private bathroom with hot water, a lockable closet, and a wonderful view of Ella's Rock, Ella's Gap, and Little Adam's Peak. Breakfast was the best I had in Sri Lanka, with fresh fruit, fresh juice, string hoppers, and your choice of coffee or tea. I also had a delicious diinner with the aforementioned view. I definitely recommend Hotel OnRock, and thank the staff for their help."

"Stayed 3 nights at Zion View and would definitely recommend it to anyone spending a few days in Ella. Most rooms have gorgeous verdant views of the nearby Ella Rock perfect for an afternoon in the hammock. The views do come with having to climb up a fairly steep slope from the town to the guesthouse but it’s well worth it and only a short 5-10 min walk to get to town anyway. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and staff are very warm, helpful and friendly. Rooms also come with several multi-charging points, great for those with a multitude of devices. Laundry is done in one morning. Staff were very friendly and accommodating, they prepared packed breakfast at 4am on checked out day. "
