I was short on money and chose this guest house. It was a very good choice! for 2800Rps there was hot water, wifi, breakfast and a good bed! The owner is really nice and will help you arrange any trip. It's 5 minutes from the station and close to the "center". Don't expect more comfort though, but for just a... More

A great stay despite the two day monsoon. Room well appointed and views excellent. Family very friendly and welcoming. Food was great at Sun Top and would also highly recommend Nilmini for curry at the corner with the main road, it's really authentic, delicious and cheap - polar opposite of more touristy bars on high street. With its location a... More

Nice family guesthouse. It is a bit expensive, but Ella is very touristic, so this may explain the price. My room was very confortable and the location is very good. The manager is very helpful. I think their taxi service towards other cities is definetely expensive, and you can find cheaper around.

Stayed here a few days and found it to be a good choice. Room was large enough for me and clean, dinning/common area was ideal for early morning and evening. The guest-house was on a road just off Ella's main road so avoided any traffic noise and is just next to the train station so could of avoided paying the... More

We stayed here for four days and had a lovely time. The owners and the staff are extremely helpful and friendly. In the evening (around 5pm) if you sit in the restaurant you might get to see some hornbills, kingfishers and numerous other birds...it was quite a treat for us. Tip: Pay the bill as you go otherwise everything comes... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in september. The sun top inn does not have airco or fan but they have a mosquito net. That was just fine because the temperature is very good in Ella due to the height. The rooms are simple but nice. Very clean. Some things had broken parts and needed a quick fix from a... More

This hotel gets points for being quaint and casual, but we quickly realized that the towels and sheets smelled odd and unpleasant and the pillows were ancient and lumpy. On our last day there we saw the servant boy picking up the dried laundry from the ground of the cow field next door and realized why our linens were so... More

We stayed three days at Ella Guesthouse and we really enjoyed it. The rooms were amongst the nicest and cleanest on our trip. Mattresses and bath rooms are also in great condition. There is a great view towards the Ella Rock from the balcony and the restaurant. The food was the best we had in Sri Lanka. The family who... More
