We stayed 2 nights and will not come back again. Most of us had cold showers. Rooms did not get cleaned/refreshed during our stay. Barking dogs and loud music from the center made it difficult to sleep due to open air construction. Beds are good but everything else is rather oldish and in disrepair. For the same price we found...

Lovely room, very clean and comfortable communal areas, very good breakfast, and very hospitable/helpful staff, eg info on walks, trains, buses etc. Ended up extending my stay by a couple of nights, because of all the above and great...

This lovely guesthouse is a 2-minute walk from the busy main road near a shortcut to the railway station. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The room had awesome, clean purple sheets - a nice change from dingy white. Had a lovely fruit plate with curd for the included breakfast.

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.

I stayed at Sun Top Inn after walking in and doing a Retreat at the just outside of town Rathmalkanda Insight Meditation Center. The owners and staff are helpful and friendly. The place is exceptionally clean. The tile floor gleams. I like the location. Since I had done a retreat outside of town I wanted a place in Ella close...

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...
