My wife and I stayed in the hotel for one night as part of our roundtrip through Sri Lanka. Reception: 5/5 Very friendly. The luggage was brought to our rooms. Rooms: 4/5 Enough space. Fantastic view from the balcony into the valley. There is no separation between the shower and the remaining bathroom. So after having a shower have of...

We spent two nights here where we had a spectacular view of the Ella Gap. The room was spacious and the food was good without being spectacular but what more than compensated was that view of the Ella Gap which is truly stunning. There were monkeys in the trees and one of them would have had my breakfast if I...

Great location with a fantastic view. Rooms were very clean and large. Breakfast was good and staff were friendly and helpful. Would not call it a luxury hotel, more of a small bed and breakfast type of an arrangement. Nevertheless, we were very happy with our stay here.

We stayed here as part of our tour of Sri Lanka. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here mainly because of the most perfect view of the Ella Gap but also the room was very comfortable. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The food choices were not huge but what we had was beautifully prepared and very tasty. We will endeavour to...

Think the last review was about a different hotel. Check the name Robert!!! Rooms tidy and comfortable. There are bed side lamps, no airco but a fan. All in all food very good, no buffet at all. Large groups cannot visit since it lies quite remote and the road to the hotel is definitively not suited for big cars or...

the view is fantastic en the shower is warm. But modern travvelers expect more. Missing in the guestrooms is readinglights near the bed, a safe in the room , a good lock on the door. There is television but no channels, , there is wifi but extreme slow. The design is a horrible mixture, the food buffet not much variation...

The view has to be the outstanding memory of this hotel. Even, as another contributor has written, on a rainy day. Our room was comfortable although we found the bathroom arrangement a little odd - curtains across transparent glass windows to give privacy from the bedroom. A rubber mat would have been helpful in the shower. The bumpy road up...

Positives: -Views are spectacular, photos do not do justice but I'll add some anyway -Feels more like a hotel than a bed and breakfast, so if you want creature comforts it's good for that or if you just need a good nights sleep -excellent access to train station. Just walk along the track for 3 mins (all the locals do...

The approach to the hotel is along a very bumpy track, very close to the railway at times. The view through the Ella Gap is quite something, even when it is very cloudy and rainy. Our bedroom on the top floor was comfortable without being luxurious. The bathroom small but adequate. The a la carter dinner gave sufficient choice and...
