Very good comfortable room, basic as to be expected for the price. Friendly host who was lovely enough to give me a lift to the bus in the morning! Tip: although he was lovely I followed his ongoing travel advice and because of bus timings I ended up with a bus that took 10 hours to get to my next...

Great host, can deal with everything. A wonderful hotel on a hill with stunning views of Ella. Very rich breakfast. Great price. More demanding access to the hotel, but it's worth it. We were there with the kids. I recommend.

The room is ok. We booked there because all the other place were full. Difficult to access but close to the railway station. No tuk tuk wants to drop you there as it is at the top of a hill. You walk up to the hotel with some difficulty. Close to Main Street and restaurants.

The hotel was not value for money. overall, it was so expensive for budget traveller with limited amenities. It was my mistake by a wrong click on booking.com but that's not the room i intended to book. We tried to connect to the hotel host but he only answered the night before we arrived and wanted to get more money...

The room was small but ok. We had a good breakfast. Hard to get to the hotel as you need to walk with the backpack on your back on a path going up the hill and it was raining and thus a bit muddy. No tuk tuk goes up there. The view is not really like in the pictures. There...

“Higher rooms have better view however not recommend to stay for family size or for elder person as you have to walk up hill around 300m”

“The hotel is in a small tea plantation and the owner makes really good tea directly from the plantation. You can also buy tea leaves directly from him for a really good price.”
