The staff were very friendly and helpful beyond our expectations. Special mention of Saliya.Luxman and the young lady. The breakfasts were delicious and served with...

The pool is lovely too, really clean and has really good views out into Ella. The food here is also great, we had dinner and breakfast and couldn't fault it. Our room wasn't ready when...

This place had been recommended to us for the view and the kind staff and we weren't disappointed. Our chalet looked right between the gap of Little Adam's Peak and Ella Rock. There was a pool which was a godsend after a long walk to the Peak. Each chalet had a table and chairs outside on the patio and this...

To start with this I brought this on myself initially. After being out of the sun for sometime, the first thing I did when I arrived at Ella was to take advantage of the lovely pool and view and overdid it somewhat with the tanning (blistering and shaking by sundown). I requested on switching rooms, which I had already been...

We arrived in the dark and it was a steep climb up a lot of steps, though they did come down and carried our luggage. We were in the top rooms. Not overly impressed with the murals everywhere or the tatty balcony furniture. Dinner was served on the balcony and was included in the price. Was reasonable but would have...
