Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a great hotel. A complete gem. I’m not certain I can put in words how happy we are with the stay. From arrival, a welcome treat, through to the best, freshly cooked, breakfast in the whole holiday the place was perfect. Great views too. Special shout out to Priyantha who looked after us throughout. If we ever get the chance to come back we will. Thank you

We arrived late and had too rush to the bridges for sightseeing. Prior to arrival there was rain. The views from the hotel are itself very stunning. The food was really good and nothing was impossible for the kitchen staff. In fact we bought jackfruit and requested the kitchen to make chips for us which they did. We had booked two rooms which unfortunately were in two different floors. The shops and other business faculties are working distance and the train distance is not far and can be walked to.

Ekho Ella Hotel offers a serene escape amidst Sri Lanka’s natural beauty, welcoming guests with warm Sri Lankan hospitality and tastefully decorated rooms. Its standout feature is the breathtaking panoramic views of Ella Gap and lush greenery. The culinary experience showcases delightful Sri Lankan dishes, served by attentive staff. Overall, Ekho Ella Hotel provides a peaceful retreat in Ella’s heart, perfect for unwinding and creating lasting memories in Sri Lanka’s hill country. Special thanks go to Mr. Sujith at Galle Face Hotel who recommended Ekho Ella, and to Mr. Udesh and Mr. Priyantha for their exceptional service from check-in to dining. Every interaction was marked by their professionalism and attentiveness.

Small hotel on the edge of a town that is popular with younger people, in the high country of SL. Service and food excellent and not overpriced. A fantastic view from the best kept garden I have ever seen!! the staff were lovely and room comfortable, with a local feel. Be warned all walks locally tend to be very steep - hire a cooter or use the many tuk-tuks. The local zipline experience looked like fun. I'm a bit old for such activities.

From the moment we arrived the staff were really nice and couldn’t do enough for us. We were upgraded to a gorgeous room with views out over the mountains. The room had everything we needed and the food in the restaurant was beautiful. The service was friendly and attentive and thanks to Dinesh, Guest Service Manager, who did everything he could to make our stay as special as possible.

This was the our favourite hotel, as it ticked all our boxes. The view was nothing short of stunning, the service perfect; our experience made all the more special by Sanjeewa, who looked after us throughout our stay here, and the rooms were amazing. Let's not forget the food; Excellent! Close to Little Adam's Peak and Ella railway. If you're into cricket Ella cricket ground is a short walk away.

A haven away from busy Ella. Peaceful hotel with amazing staff who all work well as a team. The gardens are immaculate and the view nestled in between Ella’s Rock and Adams Peak are incredible. Would highly recommend a visit to this oasis in the mountains.

heavenly !!!! what an amazing location and set up. The grounds are impeccably kept, growing their own herbs and vegetables on the grounds . Nothing is too much for Dinesh who took care of us from our arrival through meals and made sure we are well.looked after. The rooms are also amazingly unique .. we had our rooms overlooking the mountains and woke up literally on top of the clouds
