“Blatant rip off upon check out”
Reviewed 25 August 2011

In terms of what other places in Ella are charging this place is reasonable and one of the cheaper places to stay.
Our room was big, but the door was only lockable by using two feeble bolts about half a centimetre thick, a punch would have busted the door open.
The bathroom was full of ants, I literally had to spray the toilet before I could use it.
The pillows were rock solid and the TV had a picture that was unwatchable.

Despite all that I was going to give this hotel an average rating.

Upon check out our bill had a 10% service charge, I wondered over this for a second and then realised the manager had written our bill on a restaurant receipt. There was no 10% service charge at all. It was a blatant attempt at snatching a few hundred extra rupees from us at check out. I was disgusted and pointed it out, the bill soon changed,
The fact a hotel manager would do shows the type of person he is, and considering the amount of accommodation in Ella there is absolutely no reason whatsoever to accept that.

Stayed August 2011, travelled with family
