    This is such a nice town, good and plenty of food options. Lots of bars and the surrounding is very beautiful. You get spoiled here with waterfalls, hikes and so much greenery. Loved arriving here with the train, meeting other travellers and eating plenty of delicious food :) Will come back soon, next time for longer because there is so much more to see.

    Ella is a chilled laid back kind of place like Bali used to be, However the TukTuk Mafia are despicable rude, price gouging and trying to rip off every tourist. If you go to Ella take your own transport. You can rent your own TukTuks and Scooters. I encourage people to use Uber andPickme it works in Colombo. Honest TukTuk drivers are bullied in Ella As well as other tourist hubs in Sri Lanka.

    Good starting place for visiting the mountain area of the country. Downtown noisy and inundated with tourists. Those who want a quieter but equally stunning settling but somewhat more limited in amenities may do better staying in a smaller and nearby setting. If you are taking the amazing train ride, do so ‘backwards’ and start in Ella area.

    Nice Nature, but very touristic city center.

    Nice Nature, but very touristic city center. Ella Rock walk is great, but you can leave out the entrance fee to the top - the view during the walk is way better, and the top can be very crowded. Little Adams Peak has a nice view on top, but the whole way is full of people who want to sell you stuff & a lot of tuktuks cross you while you are walking. That’s not really enjoyable. The Zip Line there is also overrated and expensive, wound not recommend that. Walking at the train tracks was a great experience. And explore the restaurants in the city, don’t go in the overcrowded places. I was at the Lion restaurant, which has great service, an amazing view(!) and really good food.

    Unfortunately Ella which is a lovely spot with beautiful views and nature has been spoilt by too many people. Very overdeveloped and what used to be pleasant country walks are now crowded with people. On a positive side there are lots of facilities including a Zip Line.

    Nice place in the mountains, but town itself is a tourist trash. You can find nice restaurants, tourist shops ... along loud bars and drunk and trashed tourists. Dont stay on the main street, rather take a calm place with views on a hill. Nature around is amazing, take a climb to the Ella rock, visit one of many tea factories in the area.

    The location of this hotel was within a 5 minute walk to the main street in Ella. Views from the room were fantastic and the room itself was basic and clean. The people working at the hotel were very helpful and went out of their way to make our stay as good as possible. They are new owners of this hotel and they apologised in advance if it was not up to standard, as they would be making improvements as they go, With some basic improvements, I would certainly stay in this hotel again.

    The hotel is located very close to the Ella town centre, however, it is a steep drive/walk upto the hotel. The views from the hotel were the best in town and there is a great rooftop pool and bar. We had rooms in the new section of the hotel so they were large, modern, air-conditioned, clean and relatively soundproofed (as Ella town can get noisy at night). The views weren't as nice as the older rooms but they were quiet at night. Overall this hotel is a great place to stay.

    This was our last hotel of our trip. The hotel itself was ok. The breakfast very basic only 3 types of fruit, bread or toast, then a Sri lanksn breakfast. You had a choice of eggs but that’s pretty much it. No other meal service here and no bar. Great location only 1.2km from Ella town so only 500 in a tuk tuk. Beautiful view of the waterfall and you can see the train track from the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall this hotel was good.

    The room was so clean and well organized. The room was new with the all staff in it. There were some well thought details in the room like convertor first aid kit etc. The owner and his son Supun were so friendly and helpful. Hotel was located on the top of a hill with an amazing green mountain view. Traditional Sri Lankan breakfast served by the owner was so delicious. If you are going to visit Ella, Misty Peak View must be your place for staying.

    A small and dainty boutique hotel with limited rooms, making the stay feel personal. The staff working within the premises were very helpful, welcoming and warm people. A special shout-out for the owner of the premises for always going the extra mile in trying to make our stay and needs comfortable and fulfilled. The breakfast was absolutely filling and worth the price - just be sure to inform the owner a night in advance.

    We had a wonderful stay at Ella Planters Bangalow, greeted by friendly staff and a large room. The hotel is located in a hill with a lovely view of the mountains and there is a swing hidden at the end of the property which you can ride with a panorama view. We loved the breakfast which was a combination of western and local flavors. Overall a cozy, hidden gem we were glad we discovered and would highly recommend.

    Beautiful boutique hotel overlooking the hills of Ella. The room and balcony were stunning, food was excellent and service was faultless. Location is a little far from Ella (but short tuk tuk away) but you have little Adams peak and 9 Arches Bridge on your door step which are the primary attractions around Ella.
