One of the best place to relax. Incredible view around there. Rate's also reasonable. As a local traveler I would like to visit there again. In the morning you can see the sun rise among the mountains. Stayed May 2016, traveled with My Wife,Her sister & brother-in law

This place has the most incredible view, second to none! And the pool and pool area was clean and welcoming. Yes, it is not a 5 star hotel but it is just what we needed to relax and unwind with clear views. Town was within walking distance along the train track. Evenings do get cold but the cold is more...

After a bad experience in another hotel in Ella we found The View Hotel. This is everything you want from a hotel: a very good room, amazing view over the mountains and waterfall , good food and friendly people. We even booked a night extra than we had planned. Anton and Jacqueline from Holland

The hotel was up a very steep road but the view was wonderful from all the rooms and a pool had just been installed. The dinner was just OK and very pricey for what it was. The staff however were very helpful. We were told the airconditioner just didn't work. One of the waiters was extremely helpful and on the...

Good points The view! Incredible good. Decoration of common spaces. Swimming pool. The staff in general was nice, except the owner (I supposed he was). I believe they also felt a little awkward about they behavior of their boss, and somehow they tried to be nice to us. Negative points We committed the mistake of booking without reading the reviews,...

We were supposed to stay two nights and we added a third one for how fantastic our stay at this hotel was. After days of budget accommodation we decided to treat ourselves a bit. We spent 25 dollars more than usual (i.e. 50 USD) but had a fantastic place to stay. The rooms are well kept and clean with fan....

The pool and the view from there were super. Rooms nice and clean, Manager fluent in English, beer available. Tuktuk is needed to get there with luggage, but only 10 minutes short-cut walk into lively centre.

We had trouble finding this place because the sign was very faded, but that was the only low point here! The views over Ella valley to Ella Rock and Little Adam's Peak are amazing. Breakfast (fresh fruit, juice, tea/coffee, eggs and toast) was served on the terrace outside our room. It's just a 10-minute walk (partly along the railway tracks)...
