We booked 3 nights having read the reviews and wish we'd stayed longer! Pat is a wonderful hostess and brilliant cook. She's created a very relaxed and happy atmosphere. We came because we wanted to visit Amba tea estate which is just a 10 min walk and definitely worth going to. My teenagers loved the pool and rope swing. I...

We spent three nights at Morning Mist. It is in a wonderful setting up in the hills with a tea plantation next door (well worth a visit). We arrived by train having travelled on the absolutely spectacular Kandy to Ella rail journey. We were collected (by arrangement) at the local station and taken by tuk tuk to Morning Mist. Pat...

We stayed 3 nights in the family cottage in February 2017 and we had a blast. The cottage was perfect for our family of 7. Patricia is a wonderful host, always attentive to her guests needs. The food was really good, served family style and Patricia adapts the menu for the kids. Beautiful surroundings with tea plantations and mountains. We...

We stayed for 2 nights at morning mist, and had a wonderful time. Pat and her team looked after us exceptionally well, the food was delicious! Morning mist is in a very quiet and secluded setting surrounded by the most beautiful views. It's next door to Amba tea estate who run tea tours and tasting. Lots of hike options nearby...

Maybe unnecessary to write another review! Everything was previously said. It's a great place, a great host and amazing food. Our view from our bathroom was incredible. Never had that before! Just go there. You won't regret it!

Pat is an amazing host and the place is perfectly located to enjoy what the region has to offer. Dinner is a serious matter for Pat and her team and you can be sure to enjoy some ridiculously good local dishes. The only regret we have is we only stayed 2 nights!

The scenery is amazing; so calm and relaxing! Pat is a wonderful host, food superb-- best food in Sri Lanka we got here. Good place to go for a hike. Soundproofing was lousy, all noises from the house could be heard into the room. Nice private balkony.

We were lucky enough to stay here for a few nights in January this year. I agree with all the previous reviews, and one in particular who said to look no further if you want the perfect place to stay in Ella! Pat and the staff could not do enough for us, she even rang the taxi driver on our...
