We stayed here 1 night while staying in Ella. Ella is a nice little town and this guesthouse is on a perfect location just on a side road of the main road. From the guesthouse we had a nice walk to little Adams peak. The service was very good and breakfast nice. The room was small, but perfect with a...

It took five minutes and we felt like being a part of the family! The owners are genuinely friendly and open people who like to chat a little while with their guests. Just as nice are the two young employees who always have a smile on their faces. The homemade food is excellent and the entire guesthouse is squeeky clean....

First the good things. The owner is very helpful and his family is adorable. The view is great. The breakfast was ok. The problem was the price. We were quoted nearly $40 for a non-AC room, which wasn't really a good room. This was our most expensive room in Sri Lanka. Not the worst room, but when it comes to...

Stayed here for three nights. Our room was small and dark, the shower/wc very small. The whole place could do with a facelift. It was very tired looking. On the positive side, the staff were very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts were very good. (Owners were away when we stayed there, so didn't have an evening meal). The location...

Very average guest house, old and run down with pretty rough bathrooms. Compared to somewhere like Amanda Hills in Kandy, this doesn't come close. Admittedly there was very little else available in town and this was pretty cheap. We are travelling with young kids and it simply was not up to the mark for a family. Staff are lovely though...

The rooms aren't very flash here but are clean, comfortable and have working hot water. Excellent breakfast, didn't get to try the dinner as it wasn't available (I think Mum was away or something). Owner is a really nice guy, hope his shoulder is feeling better! Handy to station and main street, up a peaceful muddy lane. Our room had...

This place is very close to the train station (but not so you hear the trains). I'd recommend going to Ella by train, the scenery is amazing, especially from Kandy. The hotel is clean, very light rooms (not common in Sri Lanka) and the bed is comfy and has a huge mozzy net. Only saw about 3 mozzies in our...

I was short on money and chose this guest house. It was a very good choice! for 2800Rps there was hot water, wifi, breakfast and a good bed! The owner is really nice and will help you arrange any trip. It's 5 minutes from the station and close to the "center". Don't expect more comfort though, but for just a...

A great stay despite the two day monsoon. Room well appointed and views excellent. Family very friendly and welcoming. Food was great at Sun Top and would also highly recommend Nilmini for curry at the corner with the main road, it's really authentic, delicious and cheap - polar opposite of more touristy bars on high street. With its location a...
