Great location close to the center, walking distance to the train station and the main street with bars/restaurants. Good breakfast and friendly staff. We stayed one night and were very happy. Little balcony with nice view to the train and the hills around. Little noisy in the night as only minus, but that was not a problem for us.

* Like:
-- Rating: A super cheap price from the hotel booking website with good appraisal.
-- Location: Super close to the train station of Ella.
-- Room: Size is OK for two of us. A balcony have a good view of the train station and tea plantation.
-- Staff: OK. Friendly hostess Lakshmis.
-- Hot sower water: Available anytime so no need to worry.
-- Spend a little in exchange for one night stay.
* Don’t complaint following items for you did not pay a lot.
-- Equipment in the room are very simple including table, chairs, and mosquito nets. No mosquito repellent if you asked front desk.
-- Bathroom: Small and sometimes with bad smell. Hair dryer need to be borrowed from the front desk.
-- Bad: Pillows, bed mattress are thin.
-- Breakfast: Limited in choices, quality and quantity.
-- The climbing up from the main road to the hotel is very steep, burning a lot of calories.
-- Nearby dog barking all the night, not the fault of this B&B.

we stayed there just for one night whilst on our travels. Lakshmi and Kurt were great hosts and our room was clean and comfortable with great views over the town from the balcony. You are 10 minutes walk up from the town and 5 minutes from the station. The last climb to the hotel is very steep but they will come down to collect your bags if necessary. Also was a bit noisy in the evening with the noise of the town travelling up the hill. All very enjoyable though and happy to recommend.

Hi David ! Thanks for your review. You could have done something against the noise since I provided all our rooms with ear plugs :)

Plenty of piping hot water, mosquito nets over beds and all unglazed windows. Lovely sized room, beautiful view. Steep climb up the hill so if you are carrying even moderately heavy luggage get a Tuk-tuk, but fine without luggage. Great location near the station and end of the main restaurant/bar road. Staff v good with arranging short and long distance travel.
Laundry service also recommended.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this small hotel set on a hillside just above Ella. From the moment we arrived to when we left the service was excellent. Lakshimi, her husband Kurt and 'the boys' made us feel very welcome. It was more like staying in a friends home than in a commercial hotel. The food was cooked to order - hot and tasty. They were happy to cook less highly spiced food for us which was delicious and nourishing. The view from our balcony was superb. No air conditioning but there was a room fan.
