Rooms are really good with all the facilities required. The balcony gives the bet view of the gap. Bathroom is large enough and clean. Parking is bit of an issue in the hotel. You may need to park by the road. Good service. Less choice in food manu. But delicious food.

Our stay was good, the staff is very helpful and the breakfast is excellent. The only thing that we did not like was that we could hear other people in the next room which disturbed our sleep.

juat stayed there overnight, the view in the morning is awesome, last meters to the resort are an adventure due to not ready construction. Good for a stop in Ella away from central street and relaxed stay

        Highly recommended ”
        We arrived at the hotel late at night and we were tired from our trip. The hotel gave us fresh juice and offered to make us dinner and bring it to our room. We woke the next morning to the best view you will find in Ella. With Ella gap going miles before you it was amazing. Throughout our stay the staff went over and beyond to help us. The Manager even got us train tickets to Kandy at 6am! This hotel go over and above what they need to, if there were any problems they were straight on it. They offer so much help on what to do, they truly have your best interest at heart. We only stayed 3 nights and were very sad to leave. Ella town is a short tuk tuk ride up the hill into Ella was around 200 R. Highly recommended this hotel. You will not regret it.

        Property is located outside of main town on winding road, but it’s perfectly walkable up hill to town in day light and easy to get tuk tuk back in evening. Waking up to the views are worth it. Staff amazing and helpful. Breakfast generous. Room large and comfortable. Would highly recommend :)

        A breathtaking view from the room!”
        I stayed 3 nights at the Misty Hills Ella Resort and it was wonderful. The staff are helpful and friendly and being a solo traveller, they made sure I was ok and waited for me when I came back later than usual. I stayed on the high floor - the room was huge with a split level and the balcony has an amazing view of Ella Rock - I highly recommend waking up early and catching the sunrise or seeing the sunset at least once from the during your stay here. The property has a few rooms and is very quiet and not far from the busy street of Ella town. The staff recommended places to go in the area and also were very helpful on giving advice on moving to my next destination. I look forward to returning to beautiful Ella and staying at this property again.

        The view is amazing which is the highlight of this resort! The staff were friendly and very polite. However the facilities in the room are not fantastic. The room was spacious and the balcony area is amazing! The weather was so cooling that we didn’t had to switch on the aircon to sleep!

        Family run property”
        The property is in a very steep cliff and it is quite old and the power kept tripping (maybe 4-5 times a day) during our stay. We checked with the manager and he said it's normal. Wifi was extremely slow and we didn't have hot water the last day. The views from balcony were amazing tho (you can see both Ella Rock + Little Adam's Peak). The garden is very nice too. Manager Mr. Bandara helped us with tuk tuk booking all the time and the ride to the town was around LKR200. My gf suffered from diarrhea one night and Mr. Bandara was so kind to give her a shot of lime juice + soy sauce and she felt so much better the next day.

        The rooms are perfectly adequate for the price, but you stay here mainly for the view of Ella Gap, which is just amazing. It's a little way out of town (about 12-15 minutes walk) but the view makes that worthwhile. The staff are all very friendly and helpful

        Beautiful view but rooms were not clean”
        It was an old property and it really shows in the furnishing. The room and aircon had a musty smell and sheets were stained. Table tops had a layer of dust on it. The only saving grace was the balcony with that great view - we just sat there for ages. The power kept tripping and wifi was really slow.

        Horrible and terribly disapointing experience at this Hotel --”
        We had a terrible terrible stay at this hotel. From the evening that we checked in, we kept complaining that the shower is A) not giving hot water B) its not a shower, its a small trickle of water that would take 30 minutes to even wet a towel. People kept coming to our room and promising to get back. Nobody ever did. We finally wpent to sleep without a shower. Around midnight, our aircon started spewing out small pieces of ice!!! We complained and had to change our room while the 2 year old baby was already asleep. Next morning, we had to catch a train at 9...but still no water in the shower. We started complaining at 7 am and again people kept coming and nobody did anything. They refused to arrange a shower for us in another hotel and offered to give us warm water in a paint container!! Yes..a dirty filthy paint container...eventually we missed our train and took another train without a shower...dont' ever go this hotel. The staff was very unhelpful and rude and nobody in charge

        A view to die for”
        The road to Ella is twisty and the hotel is just outside the town, maybe a 10 minute walk, so is outside the obvious tourist tat that is Ella and benefits from this enormously. This hotel is on a steep cliff side that overlooks two of the most iconic mountains in the area with a view between of mountains and hinterland that is dramatic and wonderful. I don't think I have ever had such an exceptional view from any hotel anywhere in the world. Our room had it's own balcony with seats that looked out on this scene and a view that stretched for a 100 miles. The hotel itself is clean and well maintained, nice garden where they grow their fruit you have for breakfast. Bandara, who was very good at communicating with me before arriving runs a very friendly hotel and could not be more helpful. He also cooked the most fabulous chilli crab for us, there was so much of it we had the second half for lunch the next day. I would recommend this hotel without question. I need more space to sing their

        Amazing views, rooms fine”
        We stayed here for two nights. The view from our balcony was amazing, our room was large, the bed was very comfortable, and breakfast was generous and delicious (fruit, fresh-pressed juice, yogurt, eggs, sausage, pancake, nescafe coffee, baked beans - also a huge Sri Lankan option available). All of the staff were very friendly - it's the only place we've been where we were greeted with a friendly handshake by everyone! We enjoyed staying the 10-15 minute walk outside of Ella, since the town itself is loud with traffic, and either walked or took a tuk-tuk whenever we needed to go in. Cons were that the internet in the room was unreliable, the power cut out probably 5-7 times during out 2-day stay, the A/C unit was loud and dripped a fair bit of water, and our room wasn't cleaned when we left in the morning until we asked later on in the day.

        Stunning views of Ella Gap and beyond”
        Really enjoyed our 2 night stay in this excellent small hotel, situated a short distance (7 min walk or 200R tuk tuk ride) out of Ella city. Being away from the bustle of Ella gave it a nice peaceful air, and the views from our balcony of Little Adams Peak, the imposing Ella Rock and those "misty hills" in the gap beyond were simply stunning. We found the breakfasts great (pancakes and omelettes particularly recommended) and the staff really helpful. The rooms were simply but stylishly decorated and very clean. Nice rattan chairs on our balcony were perfect for soaking in views of Ella Rock over a tea or beer. The WiFi was a bit intermittent but generally did the job. There is a steep approach to the hotel from the road, which many vehicles will not (easily) manage. (We decided to walk up the short approach from the road on arrival). Overall this is a delightful hotel with some of the stunning views you'll encounter. We would definitely consider a return if we in Ella again.

Ella centre is a 10 minute walk or 2 minute / 200rupee ituk tuk away. Just the right distance away to be close but still quiet and peaceful. Restaurant menu is a bit limited but staff are very friendly and helpful

        Our room was on the top floor. That means we had to walk up 4 stairs. But the view on Ella rock and Ella gap is amazing! You can Enjoy the view on the deck chairs on the balcony. But with a toddler it was a bit frightening. The manager is super friendly! He even went to the train station at 6 to buy our tickets! And it was no problem to stay one more night after changing our plans. Room was clean with a nice wooden bed, WiFi was bad/non existant in the room, dinner was not very tasteful, breakfast was good!
