FAQs about hotels in Ella

About Ella

Ella is a charming village nestled in the highlands of Sri Lanka. Known for its pleasant climate, Ella enjoys temperatures ranging from 60 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. The village's scenic beauty is enhanced by the misty hills and lush greenery that surround it.

Ella is a paradise for adventure seekers and nature lovers. The village is famous for its hiking trails, including the ones leading to Ella Rock and Little Adam's Peak. The Nine Arch Bridge, an iconic colonial-era railway bridge, is another must-see landmark. Walking is the best way to explore Ella, as the village's attractions are relatively close to each other.

The local culture in Ella is a blend of Sri Lankan traditions and influences from the British colonial era. The village is known for its delicious Sri Lankan cuisine, particularly dishes like Kottu Roti, a stir-fried dish made with flatbread, vegetables, and spices. The surrounding region is rich in tea plantations, offering a glimpse into the country's famous tea industry.

    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.

    Ella is very busy and pretty much oriented towards tourists. Loud and intense. Desirable to some but not so much to us. Surrounding area gorgeous and offers many ‘nature oriented’ options. An amazing train ride through the mountains to Kandy.

    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.

    Very beutiful, green place which has cosy, busy street, where you can find lots of restaurants, bars and small shops. Lots of things to do around Ella, if you like to hike some of it are with in a walking distance ( 7 arch bridge, little Adams peak) other places you can reach with tuk tuk, a must would be Diyaluma falls.

    Amazing location and the view (tho a bit remote from Ella, around 20-25 min drive, the hotel offers tuktuk for a good price.). If you’re looking for a peaceful gem with the astonishing surroundings this is it. The room was super spacious, nice bathroom, comfortable beds, very good standard. Pool with even better views (you have to climb quite a lot of stairs to get to it, it’s above the hotel). Delicious food in the restaurant, very reasonable prices. The staff is super helpful, quick, and nice. It was a pleasure to stay.

    We loved this hotel and are sad to leave. We already extended our stay by one night. The pool is perfectly clean with lots of sunbeds. It is the perfect place to chill and a short stroll down a hill to the restaurants and bars in Ella. The staff were so nice and friendly. The room had a fan but we didn't actually need to use it. The bed is comfy and we slept really well. And there's a pool table! It is such good value for money, we can't understand how it is so cheap.

    Two thumbs up, amazingly friendly staff and breathtaking views of Sunset and moonset. View of the nine arch bridge and the valley was absolutely beautiful And the hotel was quite secluded and isolated from the busyness of the town in Ella. We would certainly stay again and will stay next time we visit Ella. Special thank Dharshan (one of the staff members) who was very friendly, accommodating, and always greeted us with a warm smile whenever we saw him. Thank you!!

    I think we had one of the most delicious breakfasts so far! The host asked what we love and made us Sri Lankan fusion breakfast which was super delicious. It is a home stay and not a boutique hotel. The room is located in a house on the hill with many steps. however the host and her sister are very welcoming and sweet. we were the only guests and had a big terrace with table and daybed for ourselves. The place has hot water, clean sheets, delicious breakfast.

    The hosts were very welcoming. They cater to you even on late night check ins. The hotel is amidst trees and you wake up everyday to a choir of birds. The view of the mountains from the top is amazing. They provide a very good breakfast of traditional Sri lankan cuisine. Don't forget to taste the cinnamon leaves. The location is very close to all sites in Ella. The hosts provide the locations of the sights and how to reach them easily.

    the most amazing view , make sure to book the top floor room, the family who own the property are incredibly friendly and helpful (thank you). the stay had fairly basic facilities so don’t expect total luxury but if you’re looking for a very clean, comfortable stay with a friendly host and the most fantastic view - you must stay here! note it’s in a great location in Ella but the property is at the top of a fairly steep hill !

    Perfect choice, everything was clean, Very spacious rooms and very attentive staff. I have stayed at Induwara Guest in Ella. This was on the top of the list of best stays/experiences ever. Staff was very hospitable and there for every need of mine. Thank you so much. We got to hotel super early and I didn’t wanna wait. So this was a big plus. The service was exceptional as well. Would definitely send a friend there.

    The area was super quiet to sleep at night specially that most hotels in Ella have no A/C and it was not to far from the main market area and restaurants in Ella. Staff gave me the best care. Breakfast was even more from what I expected, very delicious and it was surged at my own preferred timing. They also contacted me to let me know my room was ready before arrival which was very nice of them.

    Nice family, yummy breakfast. Helped us a lot, especially when we confused the names of the hotels and had the taxi waiting for us at the wrong address (sorry for this stupid mistake). One of the sons is a guide. He knows a shortcut to Ella Rock if you wish to see it at sunrise. Oh, and the view is beyond any words.
