All the previous reviews are spot on. This is a perfect isolated location for a tranquil, relaxed time with delicious food. Pat and her team are great hosts - couldn't have been made to feel any more welcome than we were. You'll want to eat all your meals at the guesthouse (and there aren't really any alternatives nearby). Be prepared... More

(Note: this is a long overdue review, but I have thought about this stay so many times in the last year I had to share).

It was my third visit to Ella and in Morning Mist this July. The red rooftop guesthouse sits in a stunning location, within a 15 min walking range to the Rawanna Waterfalls and a 30 min walking range to the Eagles Rock that offers a 360 panaromic view over Ella! After my second visit to Morning Mist, I told my... More

Very friendly and helpful. Great food, stunning views. I am vegetarian and staff were unphased by this. Food was primarily Sri Lankan with interesting european fusion elements - VERY tasty. Great setting with hill walks from house. Highly recommended. Thank you Pat and staff. See you again - Dave and Sengli

It can't get better than this! Perfect location, comfortable rooms, excellent service, delicious food and perfect hostess Pat. Two nights are too short time in this mountain paradise.

Morning Mist was great. The place is impeccably clean and the room simple but comfortable. The view from the bedroom (Pearl) was spectacular, and the property and surroundings area gorgeous. The food is served communally and delicious - the place is small and thus intimate - privacy not an issue. Pat, the owner, is a special person, part charming, part... More
