Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stunning views over tea plantations for as far as the eye can see. Waking up here and having breakfast on the terrace is a joy and is a great way to set you up for a day of exploring waterfalls, climbing little adams peak or simply relaxing.

We stopped here for lunch after arriving into Ella by train. This place has incredible views over Little Adam's peak, Ella gap and Ella rock. The food was good, menu offered both eastern and western options? and all were reasonably priced.

We stayed here for one night whilst in Ella, following the Trip Advisor ratings/recommendations. Words cannot justify how spectacular, magnificent and life affirming the views are. The staff provided a wake up call unprompted just before sunrise to ensure you didn't miss it, which was nice. That being said, at night, our room appeared to be plagued by ants, mosquitos,...

The hotel is carved into terraces on the side of a mountain thus offering stunning views down a canyon 200 kms long. We arrived disappointed that our train ride here was aborted due to our train being so overcrowded it bore comparison with The Black Hole of Calcutta. The view soothed us somewhat; the restaurant prices were not as extortionate...

The view from room and huge balcony are spectacular. Both small adams peak and ella rock. Short walk to town but steep climb back of about 10 min. Downside is the limited service (it is a small hotel) and the cleanliness of the rooms.

We have stayed for 1 night at Mountain Heavens. Room was very clean, and spacious with a big bathroom. Every room has its own terrace, with a fabulous view to the Ella Gap -- that was fascinating! We were sitting the whole afternoon on the terrace and enjoying it. In the morning a spectacular sunrise has appeared followed by chants...

We spent two nights in the hotel, where the main attraction is the location - the view is outstanding. The hotel was allright, but less of a luxury offering that the price warrants - it was the most expensive place we stayed in in Sri Lanka by quite a lot, and the rooms were similar to much cheaper options in...

The road is pretty narrow, a Tuk Tuk is best! the Railway line is also pretty "Tenko", But it doesn't take long to walk down to "Gap Year Central". Ella itself isn't brilliant, but it's close to beautiful Tea Country, we went to Lipton's Seat, Little Adam's Peak and some local Tea Factories. The hotel is great. The rooms are...

My wife and I stayed in the hotel for one night as part of our roundtrip through Sri Lanka. Reception: 5/5 Very friendly. The luggage was brought to our rooms. Rooms: 4/5 Enough space. Fantastic view from the balcony into the valley. There is no separation between the shower and the remaining bathroom. So after having a shower have of...

We spent two nights here where we had a spectacular view of the Ella Gap. The room was spacious and the food was good without being spectacular but what more than compensated was that view of the Ella Gap which is truly stunning. There were monkeys in the trees and one of them would have had my breakfast if I...
