Covers Basic Needs”
Has the basics for what you need for a stay in Ella. Friendly staff and a tasty breakfast. Hotel was undergoing a refurbishment, wifi was very poor, no kettle in the room, to provided but not coverage. It's quite minimalist but clean. Ella is a tourist town so not sure how it's priced to others in the area but it's expensive for what you get compared to other places in Sri Lanka.

Fantastic Stay”
I could not recommend staying here more. Rohan greeted us with such enthusiasm and was a fantastic host. He answered all our questions and more. Before travelling I asked for him to source a driver for us - our driver Hiru was great. Four of us stayed in one of the the Family rooms, it was immaculate, there was no air con but two fans which were sufficient. Views from the hotel are stunning! We only stayed for one night but i would definitely come back here again.

Lovely place to stay in Ella”
We loved our stay over NYE in Ella at Hotel Onrock. The staff were friendly and helpful, and served a delicious breakfast to us each morning. Our room had a fabulous view over Ella, and provided the perfect place for us to sit and relax and take it all in.

Amazing view”
Sunrise view over Ella Rock and Little Adams Peak was to die for. Small walk down the hill to the main strip, uphill from town was even hard for the tuk tuks. Wifi was hit and miss. Breakfast could do with some refining or just go local cuisine. Staff were very friendly! Would go back.

best hotel in Ella”
Certainly the best view, given its position on the hill in the centre of Ella (but only a couple of minutes trek to the main part of town). Very good food for breakfast and on the room service menu (eating on the balcony looking over the hills and Ella Gap was amazing). Very friendly and attentive staff. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Ella.

Great views at a great price ”
Location is a little bit away from the town, but only 3 mins walk. Far away enough to be quiet but more importantly for the amazing views (which you don't get in the town). It is at the top of a very steep hill, but tuk tuks and cars can easily climb it. I wouldnt recommend walking with bags. Rooms are very large with a balcony to appreciate the staggering view of Ella gap. A deluxe room had both a large queen and king bed. Good supply of hot water. No air conditioning but wasn't necessary when we travelled (September). Only downside was breakfast was pretty basic - watermelon, toast and eggs. No other choices were available. I'd recommend going into the town if you want something more substantial or a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast.

Nice stay”
Staff very welcoming, nice, smiling and helpful. Hotel close to the train station, to Ella's restaurants with amazing scenery. Big family room with 3 beds. Lot of space. Great view from our balcony. Nice breakfast. Just a smal issue : the hotel is on the top of a hill and you need to walk down/up a big slope without any light during the night ! (5 minutes walkinf to restaurants)

Ok place - not great - don't eat here.”
To eat just head down the hill into the main village. Lots of options. The food here was overpriced for what you get. Also check the bill Closely. It may have been an honest error but I was shown one bill that was way over then another one that was correct immediately after I questioned it.

Good view with good value”
The hotel is up in a small hill, with spectacular view onto little Adam's peak and Ella's rock, but only 5 min walk from town. I am totally fine as it is very quiet and has a very nice view from the balcony. Staff are helpful and kind. The staff was even willing to bring our breakfast to our balcony. Only bad thing is the breakfast is just basic.

Great view - no AC!”
good breakfast, room size (it does matter!) and great view
We stayed one night here and was surprised that there was no AC - never got too comfortable to sleep. Stayed in a family room - 4 people - but the room size was large enough to handle the whole family (2 big boys too!) The staff was nice but again no elevator so not the easiest climb with your suitcase! The driveway is very steep and an interesting climb form the main street - going down is good but up you'll need ropes and pitons (or a mountain goat!) The view is spectacular though and there is a nice walk around the mountains from the hotel! Breakfast was very good - eggs and pancakes! If it weren't for the lack of AC I would highly recommend it.

Nosey Staff Nice Facility but overpriced”
10% Cash back, Location, Curfew
Nice hotel with clean, spacious rooms. Great location in the middle of Ella, and a short walk from most of the restaurants. There were a few really annoying points to this place, however. Onrock has an apparent curfew at 10pm, perhaps just a ploy for the manager to get undisturbed sleep, I'll never know! They claim to have an ATM on site, when in fact, there is one ATM in Ella, and it doesn't happen to be "On Site". The owner has to be present to access cash back, and at a 10% cost. The Hotel is at the top of a large hill, and it frankly gets tiring hiking up there all the time. The staff were constantly asking my girlfriend and I where we were going, what we were doing, and when we would be back? Felt weird every time we passed through the lobby on the way out.

Decent hotel, great service”
Massive room with great view, friendly and helpful staff
Was a good stay, but I must say I was expecting a bit more after reading all the other reviews on here. The staff were certainly very attentive and helpful. Room was huge and nice view from the balcony. Nothing really to fault but was overpriced for what it is so would not say it is great value compared to other options in the area.
