Come here for the views and the scenery and the trek along the rail-line to the waterfall and the food and drink. Great rooms but don't expect a full on hotel facility with 4-5 star service. And be aware the train does run on the rail track, so make sure you get well off it - just do as the...

A difficult to find place but it's surely beautiful once you get there. Perched on a hillside the rooms are in pairs down a very steep staircase, four or five flights - not suitable for the elderly or infirm. Lovely room but no air con and very disappointed with no wifi either. We chose to eat in the restaurant, very...

we arrived in the dark, it was foggy and raining - we were a little uncertain about what where we were after what seemed a long drive up the pathway from the main road. The rooms and public areas are relatively basic, and we wondered whether we had made the right decision to stay there. The staff and service were...

This is a small hotel up a steep hill in Ella. The views are therefore truly breath taking. Our room had windows on two sides giving uninterrupted views down the Ella gap and up to a waterfall, even the bathroom was glass walled so one could enjoy the scenery whilst showering. The staff are very friendly and the food is...

Stayed two nights here as part of our three week itinerary, and loved it. Room was clean and spacious with an outside patio to sit on and admire the view and it is the view above all that makes the place - looking down through Ella Gap at sunset is an experience you will never forget. The staff were friendly...

Our experience at the Mountains Heaven was very good. The staff is excellent. The dinner was okay, Breakfast was above average. The view as most have written is one of the best as you can see all the mountain range from your room and even from the bathroom. The hotel was clean provided it was one of the oldest hotels...

Thank goodness we weren’t the bad boy here. There’s a lot of steep stairs down to reception, then a Jacob’s ladder to our room, No. 1. Reception check in was quick and simple and we were soon shown to our room. It seemed a never ending narrow stairway with various rooms on either side. We had a nice outside private...

What an experience, we had a huge room, beautifully furnished, but it was the views that were completely wow. It proves hotel stars, sometimes just don't matter.

We only stayed here for one night, but enjoyed ourselves and would recommend it without hesitation. Clean rooms, friendly staff, unbelievable view. Easy 5 minute walk down to the main street and just 10 minute walk from the train station. Try to get one of the two rooms that are on the garden floor....they are so much nicer than having...
