I had a quick one night stopover at the Suntop in June 2013, and paid 1500 rupees for a single room. The room was clean and large, with a comfortable bed and a balcony looking out over the mountains. There are large communal balconies that would be great to have a chat with fellow travellers on. The family who ran...

Stayed here for one night only for 2500 rupees ex breakfast. Small room, large mosquito net, some dead insects lying around. Shower had no power. Basically what you expect for a budget place, its average, but good enough. Balcony was a plus, although very small. Wifi was mostly off. Owner (male) very helpfull and friendly. We liked the central location...

We arrived in Sri Lanka late at night on the same Saturday as Vesak Poya. After deciding not to stay at some very average and overpriced places on the Main Street we found this place 50 metres from the main road. The owners are lovely and gave us a very good rate for the duration of our stay. r2000 for...

I stayed in a small single room. It had one tiny window, that faced a balcony with laundry. The window did not open, so the room was a bit stuffy. The bathroom shower did not have hot water. Breakfast was good, and I do not think they were serving other meals during my stay. Good location. I did not speak...

Spotless, the room was small but perfectly adequate, with mosquito net and a lovely balcony overlooking Ella Gap. Unfortunately no fan or air conditioning and no window mosquito grills, so we had to sleep with windows shut, which was unpleasantly hot and airless. The staff, including the owner very very friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. Very convenient...

This place was great. We booked a twin room and they only had a double but once someone else cancelled they moved us straight away. The rooms were great - clean, large and plenty of room to do washing and hang it on the balcony. The food was some of the best we ate in Sri Lanka. The family were...

We enjoyed our 1 night stay at a Sun Top in March 2013. The rooms are small but perfectly adequate, clean and with good toilet and shower, air conditioning and mosquito net. There is a very narrow balcony. Some doors and windows had poor locking mechanisms so security might prey on the mind were this not 'safe' Sri Lanka. There...

We stayed at the Sun Top Inn for one night. The room was small and one window faced the eating area, therefore it was dark and clairaudient. Everything is a bit run down. Furthermore was the whole bathroom flooded, because the shower wasn't working properly. The location is okay, breakfast too. Nobody could give us any information about dinner (we...
