        The owner tried to over charge us. The room was very basic for the money. The front door was locked after 10:00pm and guests have to call to enter. No safety concept at all in case of fire.

        Great place to stay in Ella”
        A great place to stay in Ella. Short walk to town centre with beautiful views over Little Adams Peak and Ella Rock from the balcony of our hotel room. Staff are very helpful and attentive. The downstairs dining area feels a bit sterile and lacks character. There are amazing views from the rooftop which (strangely) is completely unused.

        Average stay”
        Nice view of little Adam's peak ella rock and waterfall. Rooms big. Location away from town centre so quite but quick walk to town. Was welcomed by owners son very helpful. Requested meal and although kitchen closed he made us French fries and chicken sandwich. It's good for a quick stay as in one night. Cons very steep driveway up. Taxi couldn't get up had to take tuk tuk. Breakfast average. Waited for supper over an hour. We were only guests eating at hotel restaurant. Bathroom.mats were the old cushiony style that just did not look nice and had funny smell. Lights didn't work in room. All in all not too bad.

        We stayed here with our 1 year old and the location and views are amazing. It’s a short walk to the main part of town (although up a steep hill on the way back!) and lots of restaurant options nearby. Staff are very helpful and friendly, breakfast is basic but adequate. Would highly recommend.

        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.

        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.

        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.

        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)

        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.

        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.
