This hotel exceeded our expectations, great value for money, incredibly friendly and hospitable staff. Clean and comfortable. Great location, offering good views. Keep in mind the driveway is very steep, was no concern for us throughout our stay but may be an issue for other people.

We stayed one night at altavista. The crew were very nice, although at some hour we couldn't find anyone at all at the hotel :-/ To get hot water for 5 minute shower you must wait around 1 hour for the waterboiler. Breakfast inc. Eggs, fruits, juice, coffee, toasts & butter. Great view.

I stayed here with my family for over 3 days and the service was fantastic. Shanaka (manager) and the rest of the team not only provided great service, but were also very supportive, friendly and caring throughout our stay. The rooms are very large with an outstanding view. There is a bit of a walk up/downhill to the hotel, so... More

Stayed her one night late August. It's located a bit up the hillside, so be prepared for some walking up/downhill. It's right in the center of Ella. It's basic, but it was all we needed and the price was reasonable. The breakfast was basic.

The room is big, clean, with a nice wooden floor and with a balcony with a beautiful view. The bathroom is not new but clean. The manager is very friendly and helpful. It would be good to have wifi in the room, right now is only available in the lobby.

The rooms were okay but the price was good for what we paid. They were very attentive to our needs and the location was right in town. Now they are located on a hill and have a road so if you are walking it is great exercise but you need to be able to walk up a steep incline.

The staff is very friendly and really tries, yet not completely there yet. The room and bathroom were spacious with private balcony, however quite outdated with old bed covers and some knitted art on the wall. Stayed there for two nights and one of the nights there was an arrival of Danish(?) students. The staff already informed us they were... More
