We had a non-AC room but it was cool enough with the fan. Breakfast service was a little chaotic but not intolerably so. Good view from our balcony and they treated our guide/driver well which he appreciated.

I arrived and noticed the steep hill to the hotel and stairs to rooms and tacky furniture in reception. My room was very basic - but the views from the balcony are stunning. There was no one else staying here and I was lucky enough to have met a couple on the train who also stayed -they got their room...

Lovely view from the hotel and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. Other than that, there is not much else to say about this place. In desperate need of some renevation, bathroom was particularly basic and not very nice. We loved Ella, however wished we we had stayed somewhere else.

My friend and I went to Ella for two nights but stayed three because were enjoying it. We hadn't booked anywhere to stay as we find you can get them cheaper on the day- which we did. We would recommend not booking hotels throughout your whole trip in Sri Lanka as the prices are very negotiable when you arrive. This...

I came with one of my guest unexpected and asked for 2 single rooms for 2 nights. Mr. Nananda was so helpful to get us 2 nice big rooms. The Hotel seemed to me fully booked.

Very friendly and cordial staff.Made our stay special by helping me in arranging a surprise birthday celebration for one of our family members. Would advise the hotel to improve on food quality since experienced cold breakfast being served and no proper facility for the dinner. The rooms were absolutely fantastic with great location. Access to the main office is not...

We stayed two nights and would recommend this hotel for its central location and mesmerising views over Ella. The Manager Nandana was helpful offering us complementary coffees and the breakfasts were a great start to the day. Great value for money and helpful advice given on some of the walks around.

I very rarely give 1 star reviews, but this place deserves it (or even no stars!) Booked and paid for via Agoda, but on arrival was told very rudely that they didn't have our reservation. No attempt was made to double check or be helpful, but they said they had a room available if we wanted to pay (AGAIN) to...

This hotel exceeded our expectations, great value for money, incredibly friendly and hospitable staff. Clean and comfortable. Great location, offering good views. Keep in mind the driveway is very steep, was no concern for us throughout our stay but may be an issue for other people.
