9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view is incredible, the staff go over and beyond to assist and the pool is great with the view behind it. The staff also organized a tea factory tour in their own tea plantation by same owner. Also, the breakfast also amazing!
Cons: Perhaps some AC for the room... but the fan was fine for 2 nights.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The view is really amazing. The food is also really nice, and compared to the places down at the main street it's more or less equally priced, that surprised us in a good way.
Cons: The staff is very nice and extremely polite, but could be a bit more confident and relaxed. Maybe the place is a bit overpriced compared to other places we stayed in Sri Lanka.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: clean with excellent staff
Cons: the facilities were in the sister hotel down the road. No AC.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: We had a great nights stay at The Secret Ella. We stayed in one of the rooms in the main building which was quiet, clean and comfortable. Staff were polite and helpful. We loved the history of the building and it’s position over looking the hills in Ella. Before we arrived I was concerned about the lack of air con but it was not needed at all, the room was a perfect temperature and the fan kept us cool.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very nice hotel with amazing views. The room was great and had everything we needed. The staff is super friendly and willing to help. We recommend this place.
7.9 Good
Pros: Location, location, location: this old Dutch House with its own private Tea Estate is on top of Ella and just a stroll away from the Nine Arches Bridge and the Little Adam‘s Peak. It belongs also to the same owners of the infamous 98 Arches, which is also just a few meters away. While the 98 Arches enjoys the sunrise views, the Secret Ella enjoys the sunset and train views. Since it is less well-known than the 98 Arches, absolute calm is guaranteed and the staff is very kind. Lastly: the chalets have amazing panoramic views and incredible bath tubes!
Cons: We decided to splurge ourselves with a night at one of the chalets. We were surprised to see that they don’t have AC and no mosquito net. So when we got to our chalet after a day of hiking in a nice and rather hot weather, ventilation and cooling became and issue. Two of the windows had a „moskito net system“ built in but it took most of the night for the room to reach a comfortable temperature. Also, since we had to open the window, we heard the noise from the gate guard... this said, the lack of AC is probably written in the description but for that price we sort of expected another level of comfort. Speaking of which: we found the bed rather uncomfortable. On another note: the dinner was rather disappointing and couldn’t compare with the lunch we had at their sister hotel, 98 Achres. Also, for some reason they couldn’t serve alcohol in the restaurant. Alcohol is apparently only available for in-room dining.
7.9 Good
Pros: Lovely property with very big rooms and great garden.
Cons: Was a little hard to find and a bit far from town.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was the most beautiful hotel we stayed at in Sri Lanka. We had a very spacious cabin with stunning views from our balcony. The hotel is a little way away from the Main Street but very easy to get to and from by tuk tuk and it’s very close to Little Adams Peak and the 9 arch bridge.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view, the staff, the cabin and restaurant

Pros: We arrived at Planters Bungalow late at night after a long drive. The check in process was smooth and we were in bed 30 minutes later. The next morning, we lifted the curtains and were blown away by the breath taking views of the sun rising over Ella Gap. Our accommodation included a small kitchenette, 1 double and 2 single beds and a spacious bathroom perfect for a family of 4 with room for an extra pop up bed. The accommodation included a pool, badminton court and breakfast was delicious! Our kids fell in love with the hotel dog, Max, who followed them around for gentle pats.

Cons: The steps to our apartment were a little scary if you don't like seeing through the gaps.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: You feel like a king. Everything was perfect. They give us a upgrade and the Bungalow is amazing. With a great sunrise view. Sarat is very sympathetic and friendly. He explained everything for us about the hotel, including some suggestions about the region and the must see places. Amazing hotel. One of the best hotel I’ve already stayed.
Cons: The swimming pool get a little dirty on the afternoon because the leaves that fall from the trees. It’s 15 minutes by car from Ella.
10.0 Excellent

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The views wow and Peace and tranquility and monkeys and home grown Vegetable gardens and a great pool and friendly people and monks chanting up in the temple( not loud) and the list goes on
Cons: Leaving
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The entire staff at Ella Planters Bungalow were phenomenal and the space is truly an oasis. At check in, we were met with a very warm welcome and tea - our room was ready shortly after for us. The staff were meticulous with making sure our breakfast and dinner tables were set up - and always checked in on us to make sure everything was perfect. The breakfast spread included with our stay was truly delicious both for our eyes and our stomachs! Their dinner menu was also great - with a nice selection of Sri Lankan staples. We stayed here for 4 nights and had a somewhat flexible schedule in what we wanted to do - the staff were really helpful in recommending an itinerary for us and booking transportation with their inhouse driver was so easy. Ella is such a beautiful place - we were so glad we chose to stay a bit further away from the city strip to take in the breathtaking views that Ella Planters Bungalow offered. Watching that Sunrise over the mountains is something that will stay with you forever. Our stay there felt so tranquil and much of that had to do with the vegetation the staff work so hard to upkeep. The pool was a nice added touch. We didn't end up making much use of it but wished we had taken more advantage of it. We'd definitely head back here on our next trip to Sri Lanka!
Cons: Wifi can be spotty at times - but it forces you to unplug and take in what's around you. The 5 AM wake up call by the monks were something to adjust to - but it didn't bother us too much. Instead, it helped us get an early start to our day.

Pros: Everything ok

7.9 Good
Pros: Located near a canyon with a fantastic view over a deep valley and mountains, this hotel offers an open dinning room, a small swimming pool and rooms with a nice size. In our case, it was a three bedroom apartment, with a gigantic kitchen a living room. Quality of the rooms and accommodation is only average, with a lot of outside noise since there are no closed rooms. The price of 600 dollars for 2 nights was excessive since we were 5 persons. The breakfast was just ok. Very nice staff.
Cons: The quality of construction and architecture; the noise inside the rooms; very small toilets; getting wet in the rain to get from the rooms to reception.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wijay and his family were amazing hosts. He gave us great information about the location, took us to the town in his tuktuk and we even borrowed his bike for 2 days for a good price. They also provide a great cheap laundry service! We had views of the mountains from our room and it’s a 10 minute walk down the mountain to Ella town. The room was clean and comfortable and they provided a lovely breakfast each day which was always fresh and different. I would highly recommend staying here!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly host. Perfect location with a beautiful view. The rooms were perfect for a couple seeking privacy
7.5 Good
Pros: The rooms we had were very nice (and there were even nicer ones - which were already booked unfortunately) and clean.
Cons: Currently, more rooms are being built in a high back building (which will be nice once finished I’m sure - the rooftop terrace promises to be very inviting) - which meant that the 2 days we stayed we were living in a construction site wrt noise from heavy equipment. If you are out for the day then this is no downside - they stopped work fairly early (around 5pm), and is a temporary condition anyhow. However, the main property is located on a „major“ road, and thus noisy from that end as well. And we weren’t too impressed with the breakfast...
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Host was very helpful and caring he arranged everything for us and behaved to us like a family member We enjoyed a very tasty breakfast
Cons: A little far from restaurants n other shops but our host is arranging tuktuk for us every time we need
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view was definitely a plus, the bed was comfortable
Cons: The water heater didn’t work for awhile but the owner promptly fixed it, the fan was whirring for abit but was fixed too!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful views of the Ella scenery from this guesthouse, and welcoming hospitality from the owner and his family. Good varied breakfasts each morning. Definitely worth being out of the town for the amazing views, just a 20 minute walk down and quick tuktuk back up.

Guests may use a roundtrip airport shuttle for a surcharge, and free self parking is available onsite.
7.9 Good
Pros: Hotel is nice and comfortable. However, the road to the hotel is not easy to drive . Also hard to find the location
7.9 Good
Pros: Really close to the Main Street with bars and food. The views are great but the staff are also lovely.
Cons: Could have been cleaner and not the best of facilities. However can’t complain for the price.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Amazing views and a lovely pool but not worth what we paid (roughly $220 AUD per night). Room was clean and had all the basics.
Cons: Food was average, staff weren’t helpful. They said they offered a laundry service but when we asked they told us to walk to town and organise ourselves - not a big issue but given we were the only people staying in the hotel we thought they might help with organising. Did not offer any help on guides, transfers etc. Would expect this if we were paying $50-75 per night but given the price tag we had higher expectations. They also had construction going on next door and cut the power during the day.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view in a great location close to the town. My favorite hotel we stayed at while in Sri Lanka. You cannot beat the view at the pool and from the rooms. Staff was friendly and nice.,

9.6 Excellent

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Breath-taking stunning views, nice big balcony, and great food
Cons: didn't realise there were so many steps not a problem for us but maybe more mention of this
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Well located 10 minutes to the town and eating places. Beutiful viewes from very big balconies. clean and serene.
Cons: maybe some banan lounges on the very big balconies along with the table and chairs that were already there.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The view and infinity pool is of course the USP and it doesn't disappoint. Amazing. Breakfast one of the nicest we had in Sri Lanka.
Cons: The noise from the extension they were building next door completely ruined the ambiance. We politely complained and were told a lie - 'It's not our building and out of our control'. However we had already been told it was an extension to the hotel which was obvious. Far too expensive when factoring this in. A discount or even free drink would have at least showed they were apologetic
9.6 Excellent
Pros: This hotel has breathtaking views and as there are only a few rooms you feel like you have the whole place to your self.
Cons: I have no issues with this hotel. It was beautiful.

7.1 Good
Pros: A good hotel, nearby the mainstreet of Ella. Just a 5 minute walk. Also very nearby the highlights like the Nine Arches Bridge and the Ravana waterfall. Because it's in the mainstreet you can enjoy the silence and have a good sleep. AC in the room that worked well. The staff was very kind and helpfull. Also a loundery service, within a couple of houres you'll get your clothes back. Overall we would recommended the place!
Cons: We had a great staying at Ella rock house. After 3 nights they arranged a taxi for us to go to the south of sri lanka. This driver drove like a maniak. A lot of people drive hard and not as we're used to in europe, but this was unbeleavable. AND MOSTELY FOR 65 EUROS!!!! He drove in too smal streets almost 100 km/h and we've had oncountable almost accedents. We said to him a couple of times he needs to drive slower, but he didn't. Then we asked him to stop the car, he get's his money but we wil arrange something else for the rest of the trip. But he didn't. He drove away like crazy, almost hit a bus and said we're not getting out. We called the hotel, and said what the situation was. They talked to the driver and asked if we are going to give him money. We said 65 euros is way too much for this crazy way of driving. When the driver stopped, he trettened us that he would call the police and became very agressive. We paid him and left of. Be carefull with who you get in the car with, it felt really unsafe and mostely terrifying.... We contacted the hotel with this story they appoligized and said because of the holiday their own driver wasn't available. They wanted to give us a good service for a taxi ride, they also didn't know that this could happen.

6.7 Good
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Breakfast, Electricity going off in the middle of the night and generator, not connected, as manager only connects it, if he hears it. So, when I was asleep, we were in the dark. My CPAP machine, which I need went off and I need it, as I could get a heart attack. Worse, I kept my wife a wake because I then snore! The quilt for the King size bed, was a large one. One turn and you are left in the cold, too. Not very nice!

Pros: Really great location in the centre of town. Staff incredibly lovely. Great value for money.
7.1 Good
Pros: Setting in a garden like surrounding with flowers and trees. The place was very private up some stairs off the main road. The hosts were friendly, but we didn't have much contact. It is very close to (above) the main road, restaurants and shops. It is within walking distance to 9 arch bridge and little Adams peak.
Cons: Due to the vicinity of the main road there was a lot of noise from a nearby Techno bar at night and road traffic. We stayed for two nights in the low season and the loud Techno beat music went on til 3am and drunk pedestrians were making it hard to sleep. Not sure if it's always like that?
7.1 Good
Pros: This property has a great location for proximity to station and everything going on eg resteraunts and shops. All accommodation on this road will be noisy. The room was very damp and nothing dried, staff were friendly and helpful but no reception, not always able to speak to anyone/on arrival no where to let them know you’ve arrived. All in all not bad for the price

7.9 Good
Pros: Good, they are very helpful.
6.7 Good
Pros: The view and staff.
Cons: Breakfast, aminities, room arrangements and room facilities, Parking. No privercy since the balconies are inter connected.
8.2 Excellent
Pros: As other people have said, the view is quite spectacular -- especially if you get one of the rooms that has one glass wall that faces the mountains. It's a few minutes walk from the center of town and it is a little dark at night but there's nothing to feel unsafe about. One of the guys who works there, Samir, has one of the best smiles ever. :-)
6.3 Good
Pros: View was spectacular, breakfast was decent
Cons: Bathroom wasn't great, found a frog in our toilet which made it slightly uncomfortable. Also there was a number of bugs in the bathroom due to the always open vent.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Excellent location with delicious food. Friendly staff.
Cons: Bad smell in our washroom. Construction work was going on.It was nosing.
4.6 Okay
Pros: The only positive thing about this place was the scenic view from the restaurant and the rooms.
Cons: The shower wasn’t very use friendly and so placed that the bathroom was inondated with water when taking a shower. No separation nor shower curtains. Have to wait a long time to get hot water. When considering that superior hotels in the region were at the same price. The hotel doesn’t serve pork items, so no bacon for breakfast. Eggs were served but only one per client. The servers weren’t trained and hand no idea of service.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Dinesh n the staff were fantastic
Cons: Tv didn’t work.. wanted to watch the match but nothing works
7.9 Good
Pros: The view was outstanding , must be the best location in Ella both breakfast was excellent with a good time buffet spread Overall for this price point all were tolerable since we spent fair amount of time in nearby restaurants or sight seeing The staff was very friendly warm and helpful at all times
Cons: There was an ongoing renovation in the neighboring room which caused some disturbance Also the room we occupied the view was instructed by a tree which otherwise would've been spectacular The washroom gave a bad smell due to improper drainage system I suspect
7.9 Good
Pros: The view is outstanding and the food was wonderful. We had half board which consisted of a huge breakfast with different items each day and dinners were great too. Lots of fresh fruit and delicious offerings, usually more than we could eat. The staff were attentive and helpful. The rooms are clean and basic and we thought were good value for money. It was a short tuk tuk ride into the main street or you can walk if you like! Overall we were very happy with our stay.
Cons: Hot water was sporadic in shower. I would suggest to the manager to play some nice music for the guests instead of the tv being on most of time. This would create a nice ambiance to go with the amazing view and would also distract the traffic noise from the main road. Just a friendly suggestion.

7.1 Good
Pros: You felt like you were in the middle of the jungle but we’re only five minutes walk to town. Location was great! The traditional breakfast was great and generous too.
Cons: The bathroom was an accident waiting to happen with a continually wet slippery floor. We had to lay down our very thin towels to walk in (no bath mat or hand towel)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It was very eco friendly and felt like we were staying in the jungle especially in the mornings when the monkeys came by, we have them some food.
Cons: Would have liked a fridge in the room, other than that it was excellent
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hut we booked was nice and roomy. The terrace gave out on the forest where could see a lot of monkies, but also deer. The breakfast we had was really nice and extensive. I woke up earlier than my roommates to read on the terrace and the owner brought me FREE coffee, which was a really kind bonus. The huts are located at about 5-10 minute walk from the busy tourist street which is nice to get away from the noise. If you go further up the roads you get to the railway tracks which makes the nice to the nine arch bridge very nice, since you don't have to pass through the "tourist" street to go to the station.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: It has a beautiful location and nice staffs
Cons: Expensive food and low quality
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Lovely gardens and restaurant open on all sides with stunning mountain views and a bar. Really friendly, quite "cool" young staff, polite and helpful. Nice place for a drink and a game of backgammon! Good bathroom (great shower and plenty of hot water). Outside the main town of Ella by 10km so nice and peaceful.
Cons: The room was fine if a little lacking in character. There were very few people staying (at least, none in the restaurant in the early evening), which was a shame as it had a good vibe!
7.5 Good
Pros: The location is simply sublime- nestled in the hill top with 360 views of the mountain tops Outside of the Ella buzz - so was very quiet and tranquil The staff are very friendly and there is a homely vibe
Cons: Lack of authentic Sri Lankan food and knowledge of other nearby eateries Room and bed not cleaned or made during two night stay
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is very peaceful, beautiful garden and views around. Very friendly staff. They even accepted to prepare breakfast earlier especially for us. Rooms are very spacious and very clean. The kids enjoyed playing in the garden.
7.1 Good
Pros: Slightly outside the city centre which was nice however, this also meant you had no other place to eat dinner apart from the property and we found was limited. View is amazing especially in the morning! Very good staff and the manager genuinely cares about the guests. They offer laundry service which was great! Lovely Breakfast.
Cons: The rooms were tired looking. There was no hot water available on the first day which was annoying as we just hiked little Adam's peak and were reeking!
7.5 Good
Pros: The cottages we opted for were exactly what we needed. Away from the hustle bustle. Since one of our friends got injured before the trip, he had to cancel. Upon requesting, the property accepted our cancellation, which helped a lot. There is no possibility of getting late night food, so if you plan to stay at such a location, make sure you carry midnight snacks with you at all times.
Cons: The bathrooms are dry and there was no possibility of using water at the WC. It probably meets the expectations of certain guests. But the property managers should keep in mind the requirements of all guests. Similarly, we reached the hotel in the evening after a really long drive from Nuwara Eliya. Upon reaching, before we could settle down in our rooms and rest, we had to plan our dinner which was a little annoying since we had been traveling all day and were extremely tired.
6.7 Good
Pros: The view
Cons: The room, and the distans to ella
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice resort with a big garden and clean rooms (we stayed in one of the bungalows). View is great. Breakfast is very good, and the overall food quality also.

7.1 Good
Pros: cafe had great food very tasty, and beauitful view!

7.5 Good
Pros: Morris was so lovely and helpful. All the staff had smiling faces and always willing to help. The views from the room are lovely. The location is very central and convenient.
Cons: The booking amount on booking.com isn’t what you pay as there is some sort of additional cost on top of this which made it a bit too much for what was on offer - so be aware of this. The shower pressure wasn’t good and the bath mat was just an old towel. There is also a very steep hill to climb - unfortunately no lift so if you’re not very fit and you have small children/heavy luggage this will be a problem. Obviously not the fault of the hotel but something to be aware about. The wifi unfortunately wasn’t very good even though the modem was outside the door which made it a bit difficult. The beds were supposed to be double beds but felt a bit small. The place is definitely lovely however could use a bit of a sprucing up.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Very good localization near center and 15 min from railway station!!!
Cons: Noice from center (music, cars)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Fantastic location even though the hill killed my legs after the few days. The staff were wonderful.
Cons: The hill isn't suitable for young children or elderly. Only had 1 pillow and 1 towel each they could give more. Found it hard to regulate the shower temperature.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Superb location, even though it's a fairly steep approach. The owner/manager Mr Morris is an exceptional host who will go out of his way to help. Although I've stayed in a few places in ella before, this is my first time at Alta Vista, and I can tell you it won't be the last.
Cons: Nothing to dislike. However, if you are very elderly or infirm, bear in mind that it's steep walk from the Main Street, and depending on the floor, it can be a bit of. Climb. Otherwise, nothing to dislike as far a I could tell.

7.5 Good
Pros: location was great, nice view. close to the village, doable walking. nice hot shower
Cons: nothing met expectations.
2.9 Mediocre
Pros: The view
Cons: Firstly, this “hotel” is very overpriced and entirely deceitful. We had booked this hotel for 2 nights, with the intention to extend but couldn’t wait to leave. Upon arrival the lady at the front desk seemed very friendly (which later turned out to be a facade), when shown to our room we were instantly surprised by how unclean it was but due to her friendliness decided to get our heads down. In the morning, whilst showering we were shocked to discover an entire ant colony had nested in the plastic door of the shower, which was bound together by masking tape! When heading out for dinner at 8pm, we were questioned by the lady as to where we were going and asked to return by 11pm at the latest I so that she could go to bed (baring in mind the “hotel” is advertised as having a 24hr desk for the convenience of its guests). Overall, we were very disappointed with this property and felt the photos not the description were representative of the property.
7.1 Good
Pros: The lady at the front desk was very knowledgeable about the area and went out of her way to help us plan our stay. The hotel is just a 5 minute walk from the center of Ella which made getting around easy and cheap. Some of the rooms have killer views.
Cons: The wifi worked, however could have been better. A staff member appearing on our patio to get the cleaning equipment one morning was a tad awkward (given I was about to shower) if not quite funny.
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: Unfortunately this place is too expensive compares to the quality of the Hotel. At the same rate you can have a higher quality hotel. Positive point : the lady at the reception very kind and the big size rooms. Négative point : - breakfast low quality - mini bar in rooms empty - no soaps in the bathroom - a lot of stairs to enter in the hotel so difficult with luggage’s as there is no help provided to bring the luggage to the room. And a lot of stairs in the hotel to access to the room as well - if you pay with bank card pricing increased by 3 %.
