This is a small hotel up a steep hill in Ella. The views are therefore truly breath taking. Our room had windows on two sides giving uninterrupted views down the Ella gap and up to a waterfall, even the bathroom was glass walled so one could enjoy the scenery whilst showering. The staff are very friendly and the food is...

Stayed two nights here as part of our three week itinerary, and loved it. Room was clean and spacious with an outside patio to sit on and admire the view and it is the view above all that makes the place - looking down through Ella Gap at sunset is an experience you will never forget. The staff were friendly...

Thank goodness we weren’t the bad boy here. There’s a lot of steep stairs down to reception, then a Jacob’s ladder to our room, No. 1. Reception check in was quick and simple and we were soon shown to our room. It seemed a never ending narrow stairway with various rooms on either side. We had a nice outside private...

We only stayed here for one night, but enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it without hesitation. Clean rooms, friendly staff, unbelievable view. Easy 5 minute walk down to the main street and just 10 minute walk from the train station. Try to get one of the two rooms that are on the garden floor....they are so much nicer than having...

Wow! Such stunning views, every bit as good as the official photo’s and maybe better! Our room was clean, beds were comfortable and there was a good shower (although the full window wall in the bathroom is a little strange but not a problem as curtains can be drawn across it). Our room (just under the dining area), had a...

Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights in February. They made excellent Sri Lankan food, the staff in the hotel were friendly and attentive. The real selling point of this hotel are the stunning views. Rooms were spacious but a little 'tired' and access to the hotel us via a steep road, tuk tuk is definitely needed to...

As others have said the view from this hotel is stunning, but there's more than to it than that. Our room was spacious light and very comfortable.We went deluxe and I think it was worth it. the menu in the restaurant was limited but the food was very well prepared. The staff were both efficient and delightful. Highly recommended!
