Don't be misled by other views - this is it. Unbeatable sunrises over the vally. The swimmingpool is a great extra. And don't be put off because the place isn't in the citycentre, the manager will show you a great shortcut.

We spent only 2 nights at The View and we wish we could stay for longer! The hotel is positioned in the hillside overlooking the beautiful mountains of Little Adam's Peak and Ella Rock with a sweeping view down the Ella Gap, The View in Ella is unsurpassed when it comes to a room with a view.

Wow what can we say about our experience at ‘The View’. This place is absolutely amazing; from the personalised service they provide, to the outlook of the property and ofcourse the comfortable rooms, we could not recommend this place anymore! The pool which overlooks the beautiful ella rock was great to relax by after a big day of sightseeing. The...

We stays 2 children and 2 adults and enjoyed a great view from both outside the room and from the pool. Ella gap and mini Adams peak looked wonderful in the sunset hour. Food was good and staff friendly. Short nice walk to city also. Highly recommended!

We had wonderful rooms right at the top of the hotel. This involved quite a lot off steps but worth it for the view. Dinner on our terrace was exceptionally good. Sunrise was worth the early start and breakfasts looking out over Ella Gap was just magical. A great stay.

I had a wonderful three night stay at The View. My room beside the pool was lovely; it was the first time I have had a private table for meals outside my door with a view so specular! I was looked after very well by the manager & staff. Ella Town is a short walk downhill & a short Tuk...

The view over the mountains is amazing and the pool a welcome sight at the top of the stairs when you reach this gorgeous hotel. We only stayed one night but wish we had stayed at least two. Rooms were large and only downside was the beds weren't as comfortable as they could have been but definitely not the worst...

Great hotel loved it, staff are lovely!! Away from hustle and bustle of Ella. View is incredible. Very helpful staff, rooms very clean, beds comfy. Pool small but nice, short walk to busy Ella but far away for a quiet sleep.
