눉The wifi was patchy. No aircon and even though it wasn't that hot at night the room got a bit stuffy. Hard to find if you're walking there. Start at the train station and walk right if you're looking away from the hills. Walk along the tracks for 4 mins or so and the first time you see a road on your right, follow the path onto the road. Climb up the road for a minute and you'll find the hotel.
눇Wow. What a place. One of our favourites from our two week trip in Sri Lanka. Breath taking views from the balcony and from the rooms. Most hotels in Ella look over Ella Rock from the side but Hotel Laura looks right down the gap and out to the plains in the South. Amazing for sunsets and sun rises. The dinner was incredible. A brilliant Sri Lankan curry with 9 dishes between two of us. And great value for money. The owners were really friendly and helpful. If you want to climb Ella Rock, the hotel is already on the train line so makes for a great starting point. The hosts didn't organise a guide for us because they said that we could pick up a guide at the bottom of the hill easily and they were right (even though we set off at 5:30am to enjoy the sunrise).

눇We loved our stay here, the room was big and very comfortable with the most stunning views from our balcony. Staff were friendly and breakfast was delicious. Unfortunately we had a last minute change to our plans which meant we could only stay here one night rather than the planned two which was unfortunate as we loved staying in Laura. The owners were understanding about this.
