          Close to just about everything.”

          Very comfy, basic hotel that's walking distance to anything you need. Excellent Italian and continental restaurants just two minutes away. The hotel itself doesn't have any dining facilities except for a basic breakfast up on the rooftop cooked up by the management staff - yes, really. Staff is friendly and helpful though. Don't expect any sort of view from any of the rooms. As long as you're out and about during the day and need a comfortable, clean place to sleep you'll love this place.

          Smart and convenient”

          Ella Rock House was perfectly located for us: near to town but far enough away to not be affected by the noise on the main road. Of course, it didn't have the views that out of town places claim, but the balcony was still a pleasant place to sit. We had a deluxe double and were very happy with it, although it was not as large as expected. Bed was comfy and there was sufficient storage, a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. Breakfast on the roof terrace was lovely: nice setting and a decent enough choice on the buffet for a couple of days. Staff seemed a bit inefficient on arrival but were fine - we didn't need to engage with them much anyway. Only other negatives were poor and irregular WiFi and a poor shower, with weak spray and inconsistent temperature, although it did the job.

          The internet was stable and the location might be a little hard to find at first but it is fairly central and the hotel was well built. The hotel is about 20 minute easy walk from the rail station and there are many restaurants in the close vicinity between the hotel and the station. The manager was very kind to us in helping us with various travel issues. The breakfast on the roof was really well done.

          Large, clean rooms. Nice shower. Breakfast buffet was good. Staff was friendly and helpful. Location is perfect, off the main drag but close to restaurants and the start of the Little Adam's peak and 9 arch bridge walks. Our only complaint was the king size bed is two beds together with a small blanket that doesn't cover the whole bed.

          Hospitality, room condition and convenience to Little Adam's Peak

          Ella Rock House is new and very cosy. It took us about under 15mins walk from the Ella train station with our luggage. Managed to locate it with our gps. Brian - the host - speaks English well and is very helpful. He gave us useful information of the place and assisted to link us to a driver and tour to Yala National Park. The cooking class he suggested for us was interesting too.

          Great location, relaxing, and quaint

          The Ella Rock House is a great place to stay. As others have mentioned, the manager Rahon is very helpful and friendly. The house has four guest rooms and they are usually booked to capacity each night. The room was clean, but the shower water leaks out onto the floor in the bathroom, which can be a bit messy. The only recommendation I have is the hotel should put a sign on Passara Road that tells the guests when to turn off the main road onto the small lane leading to the inn. The Rock House is within easy walking distance from the Ella train staton. Walk down the hill from the station, turn left onto the main road, then turn left onto Passara Road (there is a road sign pointing towards Passara, which is a town name, and this is where you should turn left)! walk up the hill on Passara Road and you will see the Rock House on the right hand side. You have to turn right onto a small lane to get to the Rock House.

          Location, room size, helpful owner

          Ella Rock House is only four room hotel but this lets owner make a real effort to interact with guests. Great location only a short walk to restaurants in Main Street. Garden is still a work in progress and once completed will add to appeal. Booked two nights initially but finished up staying extra night mainly because Ella is such a relaxing place after the heat of the plains. Owner can assist on walk suggestions and help with transport arrangements to next destination. Would stay again without hesitation.

          We booked two rooms. When my friends used the hairdryer, the fuse blew and cut the power in their room.........when I used the hairdryer in my room, it only worked for 5 seconds...... The guesthouse definitely needs to replace the hairdryers...... Having said that, the staff responded quickly and gave us another one. A bit smelly in the bathroom, but not a big problem.

          We had a lovely room (no balcony) - spacious, comfy bed, TV, tea/coffee making facilities etc. It's situated up a quiet lane a couple of minutes off the main drag. There are plenty of restaurants for dinner - recommend the Chill Cafe. The hotel is Ideally situated for walking both to Little Adams Peak & Ella Rock; bus stop is on the corner and the train station about a 10 mins walk. Breakfast is taken next door, which seems to be part of the same set up. The first day was downstairs & made to order - excellent. The second day was upstairs - great views but a rather cold buffet. Hence the facilities are a 4 not a 5.
