The hotel is on the hillside and you need to climb some stairs to reach the hotel. Once you reach the veranda, you'll enjoy a nice few. The room was small, there was mould in the bathroom. The shower was leaking. The bed was comfortable. It was ok for one night.

Arrived here after a long journey from Galle on the south coast and was confronted by a long trek up step steps to the guest house. We were quickly shown to our room which was small and not very clean round the edges. The bathroom was well past it's best and, to be frank, needed a thorough clean. Someone needed...

Almost all the rooms have some view of either Ella or the Ella gap. Of all the rooms, room 07 probably has the best setting. It has a huge veranda and the bed is set to see the sunrise. Breakfast is tasty and more than enough to feed an elephant. Ask for a Sri Lankan breakfast one day in advance....

Nice clean rooms with mosquito nets, balconies that look over to Ellas gap, clean bathrooms (although no hot water). Breakfast was included and was really tasty - lots of warm toast with butter and jam, fresh fruit selection, tea and coffee and a choice of eggs. Couldn't have asked for more! Also, the staff there were more than happy to...

We had a great overall stay, the view outside our room was beautiful. You could see the Ella gap with mini Adam's peak in the left and Ella Rock on the right. We requested Sri Lankan breakfast the night before and the food was exceptional. Amari was happy to cook something different for us every time and it was probably...

Good clean bedroom. Room could be noisy because it easy to hear your neighbors talking. The Hotel is on the edge of town but within 5 min walk of the center. Rooms have a nice view and owners have a nice pettable dog :). Overall good place to stay!

Booked with booking.com and paid a horendous price. Views are nice, but the rooms are not acceptable!!! Door didnt lock properly, dirty sheets, pillow was black of dirt, bed too short, towels dirty, holes in the mosquito net, breakfast ok, but not good enough for this price. Really bad experience!!!
