Great stay on our journey round Sri Lanka. Clean and comfy room with all the things you need. Staff were kind and very caring, food was great. View from our balcony was amazing! What a place. Definitely recommend a stay in ella. Bonus it was a 5 mins walk to the town where there was bars, shops and restaurants

My wife and I spent three nights at Country House in Ella and loved it. It’s about 200m down the road from Ella town, so easy to walk but just far enough away from town to be relaxing. We were on the top floor with mountain and would definitely recommend that room - incredible view of Ella Rock and a great breakfast on the balcony. Also a bit more removed from the traffic that winds around the road below. It’s a simple space but clean and staff are accommodating and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

WE stayed here for 3 nights while touring around sri lanka. The guest house is situated on the main road from ella and there is a road above and below the residence. There was noticeable road noise and there were firecrackers set off periodically to scare the monkeys away. (didnt expect that!!) The breakfast that was served was plentiful and tasty. Great location to town - a short uphill walk along the road. Views from the room were lovely.The beds were comfortable and large. We found that the hot water was supplied by solar and if we wanted a shower it was better to have it late afternoon as the water was warmer at that time.

We booked the junior suite and the room was amazing! The views were outstanding. What a nice scene to wake up to in the morning! You also see monkeys and squirrels on the trees. Bed was really comfortable and bathroom was huge. The only problem is that water flows everywhere when having a shower. Breakfast was excellent and varied every morning. The city centre is 3 mins. by tuk tuk.

Our route within two weeks: Colombo - Kandy - Ella - Uduwalawe - Hikkaduwa - Colombo. This trip took us to this place here:

A beautiful place, a bit away from the other resorts. We had a very warm welcome and we were able to move into the rooms immediately. The rooms and bathrooms were huge. The guesthouse is clean and has a beautiful view. The accommodation is managed by the whole family, the mother is the boss. Everyone speaks very well English. The breakfast is fresh and varied every day. There is typical local breakfast (like Hoppers), but also toast, etc.

Ella is an emerging tourist destination; Resorts (large hotel complexes) are being built. Unfortunately, the infrastructure is very outdated. We have encountered this problem throughout Sri Lanka.

Recommendations for dinner:
AK Ristoro (37 Grand View Passara Rd, Ella 90090, Sri Lanka)
Raha (Number 01, Passara Road, Ella 90090, Sri Lanka)

The people are very friendly and helpful.
As a tourist you always pay a little more… but, it is still very cheap.

The view is gorgeous! We had a delicious traditional breakfast delivered to our balcony. The staff are lovely and they even did my washing! The hotel is walking distance to town and there’s a big variety of restaurants and bars to chose from.
