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.

The great reviews for Chamodya are well deserved. The hosts are so welcoming and helpful. The room is lovely and clean and comfortable with the most fantastic views across to the waterfall and down the valley. There is no AC here but in January we did not find this a problem and the room stayed cool. The typical Sri Lankan breakfast is just wonderful and the homemade rice and curry a must try. So much food and so lovingly cooked. It is quiet as it not in the main Ella street but it’s only a 10 minute walk to the centre or a tuk tuk for R500. Please don’t be put off that it’s not on the Main Street this is not a problem. The landlady arranged all local tuk tuk for us and a driver for the day to see all the local sights for a very reasonable price. Highly recommended, excellent homestay for a great price.

Chamoyda homestay was ideal for us with lush green countryside views. Nila was warm and welcoming, room was spacious, view of waterfall and cooler weather at nights was what we appreciated. Would thoroughly recommend and suggest using Whatsapp to contact as Booking.com takes 20% of the cost and doesn't always advise when cancellations occur.

We arrived late Oct 23 from the station at Ella. We called Nilu and she advised tuk tuk 500r,less than 10mins. On arrival Nilu warmly greeted us with a real pot of tea and plate of biscuits. The view from our balcony was stunning, in clear or misty weather. The room was large and bed comfortable,shower solar heated,hot water plentiful. Everything was spotless and Nilu provided us with soft pillows, she explained some guests like soft and some harder. Breakfast was plentiful varied and delicious. Nilu was only to happy help in any way,she spoke good English.Access to Ella was an easy level walk partially along train tracks. There was some construction work happening which Nilu explained necessity of and apologised. It was not inconvenient for us as we explored local sights during day. We even stayed an extra day and would have stayed longer if we could. Would absolutely recommend this wonderful guest house.

Amazing place to stay which is great value for money. We ended up extending our stay here as we loved it so much. The host is amazing and kind and gave very good information regarding busses and arranged transport for us. The room was very big, with fridge and fan and the bathroom had hot water. The view in the morning was stunning and we ate our breakfast with a beautiful view. Would highly recommend staying here at Chamodya

This place is a GEM. Firstly location is perfect - close to Ella town and the railway track to go to Ella rock. The rooms are huge and clean and the view from them is unbeatable. The hosts are lovely people who make the best breakfast! Ask for the egg hopper - it’s outstanding. Definitely the best hotel we’ve stayed at possibly ever - such great value for money!

We stayed with this warm and generous family in their homestay for two nights. You are left with total privacy when wanted but there is always someone on hand to help should you need it. The views are spectacular and the breakfast was delicious. A short ten minute walk on the train tracks to town. Recommended!

A very nice homestay, a little out from Ella’s main road. Our host Lilo, did everything in her power to make sure our stay was perfect,- super service minded and sweet. The room was big and clean. She serves both traditional sri-lankisch breakfast and western,- we only tried the traditional sri-Lanken meals. And they were delicious! 😋 Overall two thumps up!👍👍

Stay Golden is a hidden Gem right on the beautiful Beach of Arugam Bay. Angie and Rihan are adorable Hosts who always go the extra mile to make your stay perfect. Whether it’s special food requirements (from vegan to gluten-free - all is possible and simply delicious and super fresh), tailor made excursions in the surrounding area (safaris can be booked with them directly and you get to see elephants, leopards, crocodiles and plenty of other wild animals in their natural habitat) yoga lessons on the spacious and well-equipped rooftop patio or surf sessions at one of the close by surf spots (beginners and advanced alike will find the right spot and board). The rooms are very comfortable and tastefully decorated in a relaxed beach house style. I haven’t slept as well in a while, and the rooms are all only a few steps away from the pool and stunning golden beach. I’ve visited in December and January, and it was always deserted, so you have the entire beach to yourself. Overall, an outstanding place that you have to visit when heading to the East coast of beautiful Sri Lanka. At Stay Golden you can experience the authentic local lifestyle, and it’s many culinary highlights while enjoying top-notch and super friendly service. Can’t get better than this. Thank you very much for a few superb Weeks!

Perfect place in Ella. Located in the mountains with an amazing view over ella rock and little Adams Peak. 7 minutes walk to the city, if you go on the railway. Lovely staff that are so caring. Recomend!
