We dined at the restaurant as a family of 8 adults. We arrived early for a pre-dinner drink. The cocktails were pleasant and it was nice to sit there with the view in the background. Our starters were fairly enjoyable. However, the meals were disappointing. As seems to be the trend in Sri Lanka, we considered that the meats had...

Wow ! What a place ! The rooms are gorgeous! Lovely and spacious, huge great bed, plenty of light and amazing views ! It is in the mountains so it is a bit hilly but you're not going to get such stunning views on the flat are you? For those that don't want to walk (and it's not far) you...

Nothing prepared us for the amazing view from our balcony across the valley. The hotel was beautifully kept and was in the middle of a tea plantation. We enjoyed the hotel food and the room was beautiful. There were plenty of local walks of varying difficulty and the train journey from Nuriya Ella was spectacular. Thoroughly recommend.

I really can't believe the negative reviews of this place, but I guess people have large sticks in certain places. The place was fantastic, the best in Ella. 98 Acres actually came to our rescue after an issue at another hotel. Long Story short, we wanted to book 98 acres but it was full so we booked alternate accommodations. We...

Popped in for lunch as we were already staying in Ella proper. Nice place, incredible views, but had a confusing menu. Not to mean it's hard to understand, just that the menu didn't reflect what ended up on the plates, as such. Regardless, the food was edible (but why braise a beef tenderloin) drinks were cold and the view was...

The view, the service, menu, foods, rooms everything is perfect. This is one of the best places which you don't hesitate to go again and again. Except the small insects at night, the rooms and the interior is absolutely brilliant.
