“great view from your pillow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

We chose this hotel for the best possible view in the area and were happy with our choice. Standard room was large, clean and has a fantastic view just from your pillow. Prasanna, the manager is a nice guy, who can help you with some advice. Another guy, who cooks and serves the dining area did his job in a very intlligent way. The breakfast and dinner as well were tasty and big in portions. Lion beer is not on the menu listing but don't hesitate to ask for it if you want some.
A few moments did not allow us to give "5" to this property: black mold in the corner of the bathroom (Prasanna, keep an eye on the bathroom cleanong) and non stable hot water.

Room Tip: I suppose, certain rooms don't have this amazing view from the bed, ask for one with view

we really liked many things about the place.
However it is a little isolated from the town, up a very steep incline, and has about 70 stairs from the ground floor rooms to front entry and reception.

After the dusty, dirty noisy cities of Sri Lanka arriving at this place, like the title suggests, was heaven. Excellent, friendly staff, always on hand with a beer, some advice, a lift into town or even to make a trip to the Post Office to post your postcards for you! It's ideally situated too, with some incredible walks nearby (especially if you can find a willing local as a guide). Food was lovely. Definitely recommend this place.

Room Tip: Ask for a view!

we stayed 1 night in this hotel, and the view you have from your balcony is just unbelieavable. there is a great walk on the railway starting from the hotel, to a stunning waterfall. not to be missed!
bedroom was really big, and clean, food was good, and staff really pro and nice.
this place is recommended !
if you need a guide for driving you around, Kalum is the one: great guy who stayed with us for 8 days: greenlankavacations@yahoo.com.

Our driver Dhanushka offer to stay at this hotel, and when we see the view, we couldn't disagree with him. Hotel is located on the top of hill with the best view to Ella and mountains. Staff is very friendly, and breakfast is good !

Pros:
All rooms have excellent views.
super friendly and fleksible staff. We travelled with a 1.5. yrs old and they fixed dinner for him early and after he was asleep our dinner was served. Excellent and very cheap rice and curry.
Prasanna also helped us with the train tickets.
Cons:
Window in the bathroom has open access so loads of mosquitos and other bugs come in at night.
Baby cot, yes but no matress. Problem fixed with a bunch of blankets.
Bring your own mosquito net.
Superior rooms in the new wing have the best view and are large, but needs finish. Like paint and replaced broken curtains.
