The owner has wasted the opportunity of one of the best views of Ella Gap - see sunrise 18/1/17. The rooms (I visited before in 2013) are badly in need of major refurbishment. Electrics don't work, sanitary ware broken, ditto tiles, mosquito net 'holey' etc etc. An upgrade would justify an increase in the very reasonable room price. On the...

Did not happen so I ended up doing it. However, water brown so waste of time. Tables, kitchen and eating area dirty. Laundry piled up whilst eating. Hammocks almost on floor....

A average guesthouse but with a view to remember. A clear view to little Adams peak as well as the big waterfall. Average breakfast - the hotel don't serve alcohol. Stayed only for one Night. Had dinner in the town, a nice place called Chill. Remember it's colder in this area than in the rest of the country.

Astonishing place to be for a couple of days; charming service and good food cooked to order so don't order at the last minute. Views are truly amazing and town has enough to offer for a short visit; railway station has good connections too. Food is usual non-gourmet Sri-Lankan fayre but lovingly prepared per order.

Views of Ella Rock and Ella gap are magnificent from all the rooms (with their individual terraces) and from the main restaurant & terrace at this small, simple guest house. The garden is pretty too. The rooms & bathrooms are simple, ours were not as clean as they could have been. One pair of rooms has an adjoining living room...

This hotel best value is the view from the top of a hill, both from the rooms and facilities. The room are simple but clean, the garden will help you relax after the walk. Very good address to recommend at a very reasonable price

The Hotel deserves its name, fantastic view into the landscape. Rooms were quite small, but clean. No safe available. Bathroom was ok, but water pressure rather low. Dinner was nice, rice and curry tasted well. Waiter was a little bit short of words. To sum it up, amazing view, the rest fits to the cheaper price
