Misty Hills Ella Resort
Ella City,Ella - View on map
"We spent 4 nights at Misty Hills Resort and we absolutely loved it! The service was amazing and went beyond all of our expectations. Manoj in particular was fantastic and couldn't do enough to help us. Our bedroom was lovely - clean, comfortable and with a 4 poster bed. The wifi initially wasn't working in our room & Manoj did everything he could to ensure this was fixed...the wifi was great - we could even stream videos on our laptop :) After 2 nights, the manager kindly upgraded us to one of the larger rooms on the top floor, where the views were even better! Any issues we had were instantly resolved, the management and Manoj really couldn't do enough to help us - they organised tuk-tuks for us into Ella each evening and the manager event went to the train station to buy our train tickets for us at 6am! The service was outstanding and really made our experience. The location is great, it is a 2 minute tuk-tuk ride into the centre of Ella but it is definitely worth getting a tuk-tuk after dark. Being a little bit out of the centre worked really well for us and meant that we had fantastic views of Ella Rock and Little Adams Peak. I really would recommend this hotel to anyone; having spent 3 weeks in Sri Lanka, this hotel was undoubtedly our favourite! PS. they do the BEST pancakes for breakfast. "

Morning Dew Hotel
Ella City,Ella - View on map
"We had a really good time and were well looked after by the superb staff. Our room had sweeping views down the valley and towards Ella town. The hotel is reached by a steep and narrow road which means that it is away from the traffic but still within walking distance of the railway station and the town."

BBQ HUB Ella
Ella City,Ella - View on map
"This place was perfect for a few nights in Ella. Location was very good- it was a short 5 minute walk into the main area of the town (which is good as the main street can be a bit noisy with the traffic and bar music). The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. The only room for improvement- the WIFI is very slow and temperamental- it was almost unable. I felt also the room would have benefitted from a safety deposit box. I would recommend this hotel in Ella to any potential visitors."

Zion View Ella Green Retreat
Ella City,Ella - View on map
"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. "

The Chillout Ella
Ella City,Ella - View on map
"I cannot stress enough how helpful and nice the owner (one-man-show) was for our group. In addition, the rooms are perfectly clean, nicely decorated, large, comfortable, etc. The balcony is awesome and the breakfast was amazing. Just by the road to Little Adam's Peak (must go) and , whist a bit far from the busy street, it was very quiet and the owner would take us to center and back for free. This was our best guest house in Sri Lanka!"

More about Ella

Ella is a small town in southern Sri Lanka, in what is known as the Hill Country. It’s a favorite among backpackers, who come to Ella to do some mountain climbing and waterfall exploring. Getting into Ella is best done via rail or bus, arriving at Bandarawela Central Bus Stand as the city is just a few stops from the bigger Badulla. Once in Ella, getting around is best on foot, and this being a small town mostly occupied by locals and adventure travelers, this isn’t a bad option for getting around. The biggest attractions in Ella are undoubtedly the waterfalls, known as Ravana Falls, and Ella Rock. Adventurous travelers should not miss an opportunity to climb to the top of Ella’s Rock and enjoy stunning views of this beautiful hill country, and then put on the swimming suits and enjoy the water fun by the waterfall.
