Bad hygiëne”
Hygiëne of the family room was really bad. The bad room was dirty, the sink was leaking, the showercurtain was full of fungus. The sheets looked dirty. All the curtains were broken. But the owner and the staff were very nice and the food was good.

good room poor management. neglected.”
room recently refurbished.good lighting. a/c
We were the only guests. Area seemed neglected and the pool was murky. Food was poor and expensive and in spite of ordering 2 hours before, our driver had to help produce dinner. Owner enthusiastic,manager willing but the whole site was unkepmt apart from our room which had the brightest light in sri lanka (good) Recommended safari was in the oldest truck in the area and we didn't even see a lizard. However driver enthusiastic and managed wild elephants on road side.and we were thrown about for over an hour

Don't. Don't even think about it.”
Pool. But don't let you fool you by foto. Half of pool only goes to waistline
Don't book this hotel, it is way overprized. It's basically a run down hostel, no wifi, staff speaks no English at all, breakfast is 600 LKR extra and it takes one hour by car to Polonnaruna. Fotos do not show reality. You can easily find another place half the price better quality.

Go there for food only- do not stay !!”
Best food in Ella by far
Rooms are overpriced , very old, run down with paint peeling off the walls & bathroom dirty. The balcony was brilliant . It seemed to me more of hostel standard than guest house. Food was amazing , I would recommend going there for dinner only

great great great place to stay. we loved it”
location for habarana was excellent, marshal was a great tour guide
got there after a long van ride. marshal met us and got checked in. served cool fruit drinks. offered us dinner. woke in the morning with peacocks around. kids loved the pool. weather went downhill, but the staff was great. the people working there made the stay. santha who did alot of the cooking is remarkable. breakfast was included, but we did all are meals there and santha can cook. i love sri lanka curries and he makes them the real way, but ensured the children got a tamed down version. marshal was a great tour guide, the national parks are expensive, but fun. it was relaxing. we stayed an extra day. we made friends thanks

Good place to relax”
Friendly staff, swimming pool
We had trouble finding the Sunrise Holiday Resort. The map generated by Agoda shows the hotel to be in Giritale, but it is actually in Habarana, on the Polonnaruwa road just 1km West of the Habarana crossroads. We spent 2 nights at the resort which is set in a large leafy compound about 200m from the road. There is some road noise at night but not enough to keep you awake. Our room was quite large with fan and a/c. It had a small window with coloured glass so was quite gloomy inside without turning the lights on. The general condition of the room was very poor, but the beds were comfortable and had mosquito nets. The bathroom had hot water. There was a pleasant swimming pool. Our meals were tasty and freshly cooked by Santha, who was a good cook and a very kind and considerate host. In spite of the poor condition of the room, the resort had a certain charm. We had a relaxing time.

lovely hotel and service with a smile”
service is good, free juice, good food
the service there is very good, someone even prebooked a hotel in Ella for us, but the location is not perfect. It also provides car rent service to safari.

Далеко и грязно”
Бассейн, мультиговорящий менеджер, плотный завтрак
Несмотря на указание региона "Полоннарува", в действительности, до нее от этого места еще 40 километров. Впрочем, до Львиной горы (Сигирия) достаточно близко (10-15 км, если я не ошибаюсь), так что можно использовать этот набор бетонных коробок как промежуточную точку для путешествий в оба названных места. При этом, цена размещения завышена минимум в 1,5 раза по сравнению с расценками в других районах Шри-Ланки на аналогичные услуги. Проблема в том, что дешевле в этом районе, который удивительно беден на гостиницы, вы, скорее всего, ничего не найдете (если только не будете бронировать номер не за 2-3 месяца, как я, а за полгода). Каждый номер - фактически отдельный маленький домик, поэтому площадь комнаты очень большая. Однако удобства - минимальные, номера - грязные, в ванной плесень и прочие представители живой природы, а из расположенного неподалеку храмового комплекса ежедневно с 6 до 9 вечера (ну и утром) раздаются многократно усиленные динамиками религиозные песнопения. Так что, если вы не любите этническую музыку - запаситесь заранее наушниками или затычками. Еще мне не понравилось, что они бетонный пол покрыли неводостойкой водоэмульсионной краской, поэтому босиком по нему ходить нельзя, если только не желаете, чтобы пятки позеленели. Единственное, что можно одобрить - приличный завтрак, большой и чистый бассейн и русско-говорящий менеджер (который знает таже английский, немецкий и еще какие-то языки).
