We stayed 2 nights and had a large room with TV and ensuite bathroom. Didn't feel to clean but okay (room was not made during our stay). Owner and team were very friendly and helpful, dinner and breakfast were as expected (I stick to Sri Lankan dishes and therefore never get disappointed), even string hoppers and kiribat (milkrice) were provided...

We spent two nights last Sep 2015. The staff is very friendly, the food is simple, traditional and very delicious. We especially liked the Sri Lankan breakfast. The rooms will need little refurbishment but it really doesn't matter when you are at a place like this. The view from your balcony and the garden are the best experience in this... More

Just came back from a 4 nights stay at this "hotel" Place is clean, well maintained, rooms was ridiculous big and had a terrace with heaven view!!! Breakfast was also good. This place is just missing a mini bar inside room and a better (more attentive) cleaning team. Ill definitely go back if visiting Ella again

The room was tidy and clean and the breakfast was amongst the best ones we had during our Sri Lanka trip. However, the view from the hotel rooms balcony was truly amazing. Being waked up by the rising sun over the hills of Sri Lanka is the best and the huge windows let you directly watch it from the bed.

We stayed in Ella Gap Panorama on 7th August 2006 because Ella Flower Garden, the hotel we were staying previously was fully booked for an extra night, but we were very glad we did it. For a start the view is much much better as you can see the entire Ella Gap. The hotel is less noisy and the atmosphere... More

We spent 2 days in here and every morning was the same. At 6 am start the workers in the hotel to leave their rooms and they slam the doors so hardly that it was no possible to sleep further. A pity because the view is excellent and the climate too. Breakfast was also OK.
