Great value. Recommend.
Can walk from station. Walk out from station , turn right. End of Station St turn right under the railway bridge and up the hill. On the right on the bend about 500m past one street on right. Large room. Great breakfast, western or Sri Lankan. Owner very friendly and helpful. Walked from hotel to 9 arches bridge, Little Adams Peak and town. Owner organised a tuk tuk to meet 20 seater AC bus 3kms from hotel to Colombo- 6hrs 750R. Did not find this info on any search.

Lovely setting.
We were very kindy greeted with a pot of tea by the lovely owner, beautiful residence in garden setting, the room was basic but adequate for our 1 night stay. Breakfast was nicely laid out and served in dining room.

Great guesthouse with a wonderful host. We stayed 2 nights. Room was simple but had all you needed. The breakfast made by Cynthia both mornings was the highlight of our stay. Easy walk into town. Thank you for your hospitality.

Quiet Relaxation
I loved my stay here. It was precisely what I needed and expected from Ella. The place is simple but comfortable. The simplicity makes it very relaxing and calming. The host/owner Cynthia is super kind and has excellent communication skills. The gardens and veranda are lovely for a cup of tea and reading or writing—especially in the many downpours Ella gets. The location is about a 7-10 minute walk to town and along a road that is fairly comfortable to walk on. The internet is a bit slow, but no slower than most of my other stays in Sri Lanka. The breakfast is delicious! My western breakfast was totally adequate, but my Sri Lankan breakfast was the best I had in Sri Lanka. Her coconut-whole wheat rotis are a true delight!

Cynthia and her husband were the most obliging hosts, nothing was too much trouble. Being a bungalow I never thought to ask for a ground floor room but we had been allocated one on the first floor. The steps were steep and when they saw I was struggling they immediatly offered us another room on the ground floor. The room was clean, spacious and had a comfortable bed. The bathroom shower had a curtain which meant everything else didn't get wet. Town was a short walk away and although Cynthia doesn't offer meals she kindly made us some soup. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 days here
