Incredible views of Ella gap from the rooms. Reasonably priced food. Well-appointed rooms with an artistic flair. Staff was helpful and kind, though their English was limited. It seemed the owners were at the property (perhaps they reside there), but were completely uninvolved with guests as far as I could tell. Tuk tuk drivers had no objection to taking me to the accommodation despite what some reviews indicated, though, it is a bit hard to find at night. This can be remedied with a torch, so I recommend bringing one if you venture out for dinner (perhaps at the nearby Matey Hut, which serves delicious food) or a stroll.

The location and view at Laura are incredible! Our room, and the buildings in general are very beautiful and comfortable. The roof deck overlooking the valley, Ella Rock and Little Adams Peak never got old. The location was also good, a short walk along train tracks to the town center. Staff were generally helpful but not overly welcoming. But this didn't detract from a wonderful stay.

Gorgeous views!”
Loved it here. Though it was a steep hike and we had to cross over a railway track (blame Google Maps) to get to this place, it was worth it. Quite near to the train station. And walking distance to town. The views were incredible. Breakfast was served on the terrace overlooking the mountains. Just amazing. I will definitely be back here!

Awesome place to stay at - just a few niggles which need improving that would make it 5* all round”
Need to inform beforehand and show on website that they don’t take credit cards! And also cars don’t go up to the hotel, if you have a lot of luggage and dont fancy steep walks to and from hotel you will need to take a tuktuk! Apart from that and a cockroach in the bathroom can’t really fault the place - it has awesome breathtaking views from the room/balcony, the staff (including Lolita) are fab, very helpful and accommodating! We had a very pleasant and enjoyable stay and would recommend friends and family to stay here!

I really liked staying at Laura! We stayed 4 nights and were upgraded after the first night - so nice! Breakfast was fantastic, their coffee surprising really good. Staff didn't offer to help with tours/activities, but they were very friendly! Location was an easy walk along the tracks into town. Views from the room and balcony are amazing and I would totally stay at Laura again.

Loved this place!”
After a long, dusty bus ride, I was thrilled by this lovely haven. The view from my room was spectacular a nd the room was nicely decorated (many little luxurious touches like memory foam pillows, nice toiletries, etc.). But what really made the property exceptional was the kind, hospitable staff.

Beautiful mountain view”
Booked Laura for one night but decided to extend my stay for an extra day. The place was initially a bit hard to find, but the view makes it all worth it. The staff were most helpful, giving me directions and showing me the shortcut into town. Beautiful and delicious breakfast every morning too. Highly recommended!

Amazing views, kind owners”
I spent one night in the double room with mountain views. Not only was the view amazing, the bed was comfy with plenty of pillows and they had a good selection on english tv channels. Upon checking out the owner's mum gave a lovely small gift and upon learning that my train was at 7pm, the owner even offered a room for me to rest in - which I kindly declined as the views on the terrace was great anyway! Also, his mum prepared tea for me whilst waiting for time to pass. All in all, lovely family run property with the most amazing views! Would love to return at some point!

One of the best!!!”
Laura Ella is one of the best hotel I ever stayed in Sri Lanka. I couldn't believe my eyes when I first checked in at the Hotel. My room located facing ella rock and it was one of the best scenery to wake up with. Very clean and neat room. I love the interior of this small Hotel. Definitely value for money. This Hotel is one hidden beauty. Finally nothing to complain about... I need to go back there again

Amazing views”
The rooms are spacious, nicely decorated and most of all have the most amazing views of Ella. Also you can do the Ella Rock hike directly from the hotel and along the railway, it was an amazing 3-4 hours hike, please don't miss out on that one. Breakfast is excellent and again you can enjoy the views while eating. It is a short tuk tuk ride from Ella town. You can also walk if you are in decent shape even though it might be too dark in the evening.

Perfect stay in Ella”
A nice family owned hotel near the center of ella with a magnificent wiev over Ella Gap. Clean, big rooms. Comfortable beds. We had a family room with a double bed and two single beds for our children. Nice breakfast with scrambled eggs, toast, coffe, tea and a fruit smoothie. The staff is very helpful. You can easily walk downhills to the centre. It would only take 10-15 minutes. It is possible for a car to drive to the hotel, but not the front door. Very hard if you are disabled. But I would say everything in Ella is hard if you are disabled.

Brilliant views”
Loved our stay at Laura. We could sleep with the doors open with the cool mountain air sweeping through the room. It is a little tricky to reach the town on foot but it's very cheap (200 rupee) for a tuktuk into town. Their resident dogs Pinky and Elmo are very friendly and add to the relaxed vibe of the place. The staff were very helpful and nice. Perhaps best to avoid their recommendations for the massage. Wasn't the nicest and overpriced.

Laura hotel location is amazing for the killer view of the mountains. The breakfast is superb and the curries are must try. bed is comfortable and the room is spacious. 1. it's just the towels need to be replaced as they are not the absorbing type. The rest is fine. we would surely recommend this place to explore Ella.
