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.

We stayed 3 nights and the room view was the best part of the stay! The staff is super friendly and helpful! The room was comfortable, clean, and big! They offered us a good breakfast and recommended a restaurant for lunch and dinner next to the hotel. Don't forget to go to the viewpoint of their hotel. We had a nice time in Ella!

The location is excellent it’s a 10 minute walk to town, down the train track. Adams peak and the waterfall are in close proximity too, staff were really lovely &very friendly, helpful and attentive. The view is gorgeous on a good day/morning. The bed and pillows are unfortunately very hard, it is also extremely loud with dogs barking and howling throughout the night and early mornings, you can hear other rooms quite loudly, sometimes music too so if you’re a light sleeper (like me!) I wouldn’t recommend staying here. Also, I’m not sure if we’re missing something but the breakfast was quite basic compared to the reviews and what we were expecting. The rooms itself is extremely basic, no bed side tables, no plug for the sink, no hooks etc just things which would make it more practical. The bathroom is a wet room too which isn’t ideal. Overall, we think there would be better options or the rooms needs a little attention to detail and some homely features.

We enjoyed our stay at Ella Mount View a lot! We had an amazing view of the Ella gap! Including a direct view of Little Adam's Peak! The staff is super friendly and helpful! Went the extra mile to make sure we were happy and comfortable during our stay. The room was big and clean. More than worth the price!

Truly the most wonderful stay in Ella, our favourite destination in Sri Lanka so far. The rooms are beautiful and clean, the view is out of this world! The two cousins who own this place couldn’t do more for you, the breakfast was phenomenal and so fresh! Honey made 30 minutes before, items picked from their own garden. Any destinations you want to visit or even a scooter to hire the cousins will arrange for you. We actually booked an extra night once we arrived as we were just so happy with the property and service. Location perfect too, just a short 5 minute walk to Ella centre. Thank you for the most peaceful, relaxed stay from Josie and Jonny from the UK.

This is a very special place - I am so glad we chose it. The view is phenomenal, and the family room (D2) is spacious and comfortable, with a separate double room, and 2 other double beds in the main room, along with a spacious bathroom. We are a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and the room and balcony worked so well for us. Breakfast was very tasty and plentiful. Staff very friendly. Short walk (5-7mins) or tuk tuk (3-4 mins) ride into Ella town.

Very nice view with big rooms. The employees were friendly and its very near from the city and the shops. The negative side is the electricity and the drainage. But its good compared to the price paid.

Amazing breakfast included, open view to little adams peak. Room was properly equipped and clean. Very friendly and accommodating people are operating the hotel. The hotel is slightly in uphill track, but accessible by car/tuktuk. Recommended

Ella Mount View Guest Inn As the name tells you you will be rewarded with the magnificent views over Ella Rock from every balcony on premises. We've stayed in family room which easily fitted 3 adults and 2 kids. Excellent breakfast was included in the price and for dinner you have plenty of options just walking down to town (10 min). You dan also see trains going to or from Nine Arches Bridge and you can take a no husle photo of it. Also this is great starting point to Ella Rock just following the train tracks to the beginning of the hiking path. Sad to say but there is only one downside that we've noticed while here and that is cleanliness of the sheets and towels. Our friend had a huge yellow stain on her bed and her sheets also smelled really bad. But overall for the price in hand this family run place won't disappoint you.

This is my second sta I. 12 months. Perched with pride of place looking out upon the Gap you will have stunning views of the hill country. The balcony rooms have lovley furnishings to lie or sit and look out, read a book,fall asleep! The beds are comfortable with mosquito nets (if needed), ample drinking water and tea and coffee making faculties. The bathrooms are clean and basic but perfectly fine. Each room has an effective quiet pedestal fan and that is all you need. You won’t find a warmer welcome than you will receive here. The vibe is casual and relaxed. The breakfast a triumph, cooked by local women to perfection. Have the Sri Lankan roti and potato, omelette as you wish but If you get offered the coconut jaggery pancakes have them as you won’t see them often. A real specialty. If you’re lazy like me and not mad about humidity, order a tuk tuk to get up and down Waterfall Road as it is very steep and narrow. We love this place!
