The Mountain Heavens guest house is a small hotel with around a dozen rooms about 500 metres up a lane-way off Ella's main street. The view of the Ella Gap from each of the rooms is spectacular and the rooms have either a balcony or spacious outdoor decking. The rooms are reasonably well equipped and comfortable, although there are glitches...

We had one night is this lovely little hotel. It has the most stunning view and we had the view from our full width and height window, even the bathroom had a window through the room so you could appreciate the view in the shower.

Good small hotel - excellent views. Staff good and breakfast tasty. Close to Ella. Fantastic views and quiet. Easy to walk into town. Negatives: Ella has been overwhelmed with backpackers and packs of dogs.

Dirty, awful overpriced food. Disinterested staff. Electricity constantly off. The worst shower I have ever used. Poorly managed. One redeeming feature. The best view I have ever had from a Hotel Window. Go to this Hotel for a drink (not food) I think we counted 400 insects enjoying the ugly fluorescent lighting in the dining area. Take video and photos...

You really do pay for the view here. Ask for room 8 or 9 for an extra special vantage point. Really lovely to sit on the terrace watching the sun rise over Ella rock with a cup of tea. The hotel is up a steep hill and if you walk it after dark, expect to be chased by dogs. The...

Small boutique hotel on the outskirts of Ella. The road to get here is a bit narrow and steep at times, but it's totally worth it for the stunning view. It's less than 10 minutes from the main street. My room was large with a huge private terrace. I loved getting up early and sipping my tea as the sun...

The location of hotel is perfect and the view is absolutely amazing. A real piece and quite. The room and bathroom were spacious with a balcony. However, there was no aircon, no fridge and the Tv is really small. The staff is not very friendly, they don't really talk... The breakfast is average, the toasted bread was so hard that...
