We came to Ella for one night stop before we travelled further to Hauptale. The room was small but clean and the host was very friendly:-). The shower had enough warm water, the breakfast was delicious and the host drove us to the train station free of charge:-).

Owner very friendly and help full. Knew the times of every bus and train to and from Ella! Nice location just on the way out of town towards Small Adams Peak. Easy walk back to town centre. Breakfast ok - fruit eggs and toast. Blanket was a bit too small for the bed but we managed. They did lock us...

My friend and I loved Ella and our stay at Freedom. The owner was so nice and caring. He went to extra trouble to make hoppers for us on my birthday morning and couldn't be more helpful. Plus free ride to train station!! We would stay again. Only negative remark would be about the rock hard pillows.

The Freedom Guest Inn Ella was great for an overnight stay in Ella. It was located close to the main road but far away enough to ensure a quiet night sleep. On arrival we were warmly greeted by the hosts and offered an arrival drink. We were also upgraded free of charge! The rooms were clean with comfortable beds and...

We spent two nights at Freedom Guest Inn and we felt so at home from the moment we were picked up by Nelson at the station. We were given tea and shown to a lovely spotless room with our own balcony for tea and breakfast. He gave us loads of information on the area, including a map for climbing Ella...

Delicious welcome drink after arrival! Nice big rooms with a separate bathroom and hot water shower! Great and cheap laundry service! The breakfast was good, consisting of coffee/tea, toast, jam, eggs and fruits. Located in walking distance from both little Adams peak and Ella rock. Friendly and helpful staff.

We were welcomed at this guesthouse by the owner with soft drinks, tea and coffee. The cold soft drinks were welcome after a long hot day! The rooms were a good size, the bathrooms were adequate. No facilities such as kettles or fridges were available. However, we were offered towels (unlike some other guest houses we stayed at, although most...

Many reviewers found this guest house to be excellent but we thought it was adequate. The room was basic. Hardly any water coming out of the taps or shower. Beds had no sheets only plaids. Location is quiet but without any views. The owner is no doubt very friendly and breakfast is fine. ok for the price you pay .

This place is fantastic, we stayed for 2 nights and had the most welcoming experience. The owner Nelson is so helpful and is a great guide as to what to do in the area. I would 100% stay here again, there is a wonderful restaurant 100 meters away and Ella town is a 5 minute walk. The rooms were spotlessly...
