We were lucky enough to stay here for a few nights in January this year. I agree with all the previous reviews, and one in particular who said to look no further if you want the perfect place to stay in Ella! Pat and the staff could not do enough for us, she even rang the taxi driver on our...

Unfortunately we only had one night at the Morning Mist Guesthouse and it was one of our biggest regrets that we could not stay longer. On the up-side we now know we definitely want to come back! We had a two week stay in Sri Lanka spending most of the time in Ahangama learning to surf. In order to get...

I stayed in an amazing ensuite room with magical views from the bathroom as well as the bedroom. Our welcome was very warm, and the cooking superb. It was a great shame not to stay longer and explore the beautiful countryside. One walk was nothing like enough. I can't recommend it highly enough.

We travelled with 2 little kids and were happy to stay in the family room, even if that room was kind of ascetic. But our stay at MM was really one of our best from our 2-monts-Sri-Lanka-Trip. Wonderful countryside, very nice view from the house. The place was more remoted than we expected. But if you stay there, no need...

You will not be disappointed. Located in the mountains next to Ella town, you are greeted with the warmest and friendliest guest owner; Pat and her staff. They will cater to any needs you require to enjoy your stay. We had the best advice on a couple of hikes to adventure on including detailed maps and directions. Pat even packed...

This is definitely a place where I could think of staying forever... Absolutely stunning views and a warm lovely atmosphere created by host Pat and her staff. And not to mention the food - Pat is a great cook. I only regret we didn't stay longer than 3 nights. We stayed at the family house beside the gate.

Morning Mist guesthouse is situated a few kms outside Ella , on the mountainside in the beautiful mountain landscape. Pat, the host is very welcoming and said to be the best cook in the neighborhood. We stayed 2 families for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. It's simple but everything works, there is wifi and rooms all have...

Morning Mist is just lovely. It is quite remote so be prepared for a long drive to get there. Once there you can appreciate the stunning views and Pat's wonderful cooking. Dining is communal so it's a brilliant way to meet other guests and share tips on how to spend your time there. Wifi and hot water are available but...

Morning Mist Review. Morning Mist... where to start. One of the most stunning places I've stayed at in my life. Let me just begin by saying, look no further. Book this guest house asap. And plan on staying a couple days longer than you anticipated, you're not going to want to leave. The Location: It's positioned between Ella and Bandarawela,...
