The view over the mountains is amazing and the pool a welcome sight at the top of the stairs when you reach this gorgeous hotel. We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed at least two. Rooms were large and only downside was the beds weren't as comfortable as they could have been but definitely not the worst...

Great hotel loved it, staff are lovely!! Away from hustle and bustle of Ella. View is incredible. Very helpful staff, rooms very clean, beds comfy. Pool small but nice, short walk to busy Ella but far away for a quiet sleep.

Downside of this place is the outdated lobby and somewhat outdated rooms. But in general: clean, spacious rooms. Personnel is very friendly and helpful. Guide arranged through hotel is tiptop! The pool adds to the relaxing atmosphere of Ella!

The view is clearly stunning. Breakfast looking out to mountains. The staff are friendly and helpful. A special mention for Saliya, the star, who is always cheerful, polite and entertaining. He brings you breakfast with a smile. The owner should invest in some smart towels. They don't clean the rooms while you are there but we don't personally mind that....

The staff is very friendly but the hotel permisses and politics is very dated. The view and the fact that the staff is so friendly makes is worth. I was going for one night and decided to stay longer because this seemed the best place to relax and have a rest from my long travel. Just stayed at the hotel...

Nice view and gardens. Average room, which was not cleaned during our stay. Also everything was very damp. No air conditioning, fan only. Bed linen and towels old. Breakfast average, but in a nice location.
