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.

A Very quaint accommodation next door to the path to Adam's Peak. The rooms are very basic and compact, with direct sunlight peering through the large glass windows. It's not a hotel, so initially when you get to the place, you feel a bit shocked. The reception is a bar where the owner confirms your details and takes you to your room with no introduction to the place. Breakfast was very good with fruit plater, juice, toast and eggs with your preferred brew. It was a shame their restaurant was out of action, so we had to go out looking for somewhere to eat.

We stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful stay here. The photos really don’t do the room justice, it’s much more modern and inviting than the photos. Staff were amazing, breakfast to your balcony at a time of your choosing is fab, we loved just chilling with our coffee on the balcony in the mornings. The bean bags are brilliant! The location is excellent, right at the path for little Adam’s peak/zipline/pool club/path to nine arch bridge. There’s a few cafes and restaurants on the door step or you can walk 15 minutes or get a tuk tuk to the main road where there is an abundance of places to eat. Good WiFi, good cocktails, lovely and clean place and staff helped arrange our onward travel to Yala. Thank you for a brilliant stay!

I can't find anything to complain about regarding this hotel. The rooms were large and spacious and the washroom clean. It took around 10 minutes to walk to the town, which was quite manageable. Plus, the hotel's proximity to Mini Adam's Peak and the Nine Arches Bridge made it a perfect starting point for enjoyable hikes. The breakfast served here was quite satisfying. But the highlight of our stay was undoubtedly the breathtaking view from our room's patio. I must commend the staff for their exceptional service and assistance in arranging transportation to Nildiya-pokuna. Thank you, guys!

It was a great place to stay. Very clean and comfortable. The location was very convenient as it was very close to both the town and little Adam's peak. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Everything about our stay here was amazing. The rooms were spacious with an amazing view. Especially loved the outside area with beanbags, hammock and a table where we had breakfast bought to us every morning. Great location next to the trail to Little Adams Peak and Nine Arch Bridge. Staff were very friendly and always on hand to help

We stayed 3 nights here and didn’t want to leave. The room was huge, and the service was terrific. Breakfast was delivered to our patio every morning. We also chilled out on the comfy beanbag chairs in the evenings while sipping mojitos that were brought to us from their bar/restaurant. The location is good - about a 15 minute walk to the busy town area. Also, you are very close to the Little Adams Peak trail, ziplining, and the 9 Arch Bridge trail. The only negative is that it can be a bit noisy as it sits on a corner and gets lots of traffic. Also note that there is no safe in the room. Would be nice if they would add that. Overall a terrific stay. We would 100% stay again.

We spent two nights in the Chillout Ella during our trip in Sri Lanka. We really would recommend this hotel! The rooms are very clean, nice and really modern. You have a great view from the balcony and it‘s really charming there. The breakfast was really good and the staff was very friendly!!

The Chill Out is in an ideal location. Slightly away from the hustle and bustle of the busy main roads and offering breathtakingly beautiful mountain views. Apparently it was recently renovated and has only 4 rooms. Two very spacious and stylish family rooms downstairs and two slightly smaller rooms upstairs. The rooms are very clean, with nice attached bathrooms and enormous picture windows. It’s lovely to sit on the balcony and watch the sun rise or set. Breakfast is served on the balcony outside the room and it’s very tasty. We had a choice of eggs or coconut pancakes, toast and a fruit plate. The owner is very charming and helpful, so I can definitely recommend this little bed and breakfast.

The room was clean, tidy in moder but at the same time rustic style. Beds were comfy kids had bunk bed and loved it. Shower good with constant hot water. Location is perfect. Not to close to main busy street with bars and restaurants. Will take around 10 min to walk there. The same as for nine arch Bridge or Ravana flying club, however tuk tuk will help to reach those places. Breakfast was good enough, fresh and tasty. Thank you for pleasant stay.
