This is a good place to stay in Ella. The owner and his wife are nice people that are helpfull. The rooms are basic. It is just around the corner of the restaurants on mainstreet, but you don't notice this at all. Nice and quiet. Only 300 meters from the train station. Very convenient.

Quieter than other places no doubt but a nice... More

I arrived in Ella without a place to stay and gave Sun Top Inn a chance. I'm so glad I did! After about 10 minutes, I was installed in a comfortable room with WiFi, a towel and a promise that they would help me get a ticket for my early train to Colombo the next day (I had been to... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this affordable guest house. We felt very well looked after and welcomed here. Rooms were clean and comfortable with wifi, mosquito nets, comfy beds, warm showers. Exellent location - only 5 min walk from cafe chill. Lovely breakfast each morning, would definitely return here.

We stayed at the Sun Top Inn for two nights. Despite the rooms being quite basic, the breakfast was excellent and the staff were very kind and helpful. It is also walking distance to the train station and to the Main Street. A fantastic place to stay in Ella.

The hotel is located just next the main road and next to the railway station. It could not be more convenient. Breakfast was decent and big enough to enable you to go trekking all day long. Staff were friendly and room were clean. Great budget hotel.
