When we had to cut out stay short due to family emergency at home they did everything possible to support - even providing a packed lunch for our long journey back to Colombo.

A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Planters Bungalow is located about 30 minutes South of the busy city of Ella. So you can fully enjoy your stay in this little oasis situated directly in the forrest. Service, food, facilities are all perfect. A variety of animals (monkey, squirrel, a lot of birds, butterflies) which do not bother you (just don’t forget earplugs if a singing cricket decides to overnight close to your room. I have to Highlight the staff (19 persons) who also grow their own organic fruits, vegetables and aryuvedic herbs on the area which are also part of the menu.
Cons: The beautiful location is leading to several tuctuc rides (one way 1100 LKR to Ella) which I still think is worth the location of the resort. The staff has sometimes difficulty in proper English. The could definitely work on giving more information to the guests (routes in Ella rock, little Adams Peak to Nine Arch Bridge, etc - we researched it ourselves but it would be nice to be provided those essential informations). And at the very end we got the information that there is a organic tea plantation factory and a „secret waterfall“ as beautiful as Ravanna Waterfall very close walking distance - so either ask for that straight away or the Management should also give this information to the guests in kind of a brochure. Do the free walking tour in the organic garden with Palintha - we learned more then in any spice garden.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Quality View from room Pool Service
Cons: Limited menu for dinner
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Ella planters bungalows was beautiful. An amazing place to stay set slightly outside of Ella, but this made it all the more special. The room we had was huge with a wonderful balcony and great views. The breakfast was included and delicious! The staff couldn’t have been any more attentive and friendly, especially Palitha. The surroundings were beautiful and one staff member was kind enough to take us on a tour of the gardens. An amazing stay!
Cons: Nothing!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about this place is fantastic. We are a family of 6 and stayed in the two newly renovated villas. Both were very clean, spacious and quiet. The views of the mountains were unbelievable to wake up to. We would recommend anyone wanting rooms with a view and service and food to match, to definitely stay here when in Ella!
Cons: Was a little far from town, but we had our own driver so wasn’t a problem.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Palitha and his staff made us feel very welcome and at home. Excellent food which was very good value. Very comfortable room. Lovely pool and gardens with lots of wildlife.

7.5 Good
Pros: Everything except of the above
Cons: Owner was very friendly however he tried to overcharge us with a “trick” which I believe he applies to every guest. He asked us to pay in rupee and then he tried to charge us more, supporting that the currency rate was higher when we made the booking. Of course we searched the rate for that specific date and was almost the same, after a small dispute we paid the correct amount. So be careful with the currency rates!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had an absolutely awesome time in Ella. OnRock was in a fantastic location, but beware it is on a steep hill, but worth it. The manager, Rohan, was very accomodating and wanted everything to be just right, which it was. We have 2 children who are fussy eaters. Rohan made a special breakfast for them, which was really appreciated. Room was very clean & view of Adam’s peak/Ella Rock was perfect. I highly recommend.
Cons: Walking up the steep hill, but it was good exercise and worth it for the view. I would recommend that if you arrive there by taxi, be sure to ask whether their vehicle can go up the hill. Ours could not and we ended up dragging our suitcases up the hill with little help.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Awesome location and great hospitality!)
7.1 Good

Pros: The hotel is a bit outside of Ella but with wonderful views. Easy to take a tuk tuk to and from town. The owner was very nice and helpful and breakfast was excellent. The view from the top balcony and the sunrise was amazing. The family room was big enough for 4 of us. Some rooms had a great view of the valley and the mountain. Highly recommend to stay at Lucky star Ella
6.7 Good
Pros: Nice view from restaurant terrace
Cons: Photo was of better room, we got first floor, it was really different option, very noisy.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The views from Lucky Star over Ella rock and it’s surroundings are beautiful. You can get a tuk tuk or it’s about a 15 min walk into town via the train tracks. The views are well worth it though and being in the hills means it’s more peaceful at night. We have the Deluxe King room which had a great balcony with a cool swing chair. The room was clean and comfortable and you could tell the bathroom had been modernised - you can even shower looking out over the view! Breakfast was good and the staff were friendly and welcoming.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Loved our stay at Lucky star Ella :) Kind owner who helps you out with everything (scooter, taxi’s, where to go etc.) the view from the big terrace is amazing: you can see Adams Rock, Ella Peak, the waterfall and more that I cant remember at the moment.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The view from the room was bloody magnificent! Staff were pleasant and helpful!
Cons: You don't really realize how small the room is from pictures till you arrive. However, it was clean and tidy, and there was a balcony.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Staff very helpful. Great views
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Located out of town so nice and quiet with the most stunning view from the room’s balcony towards the sunrise down the valley
Cons: It was a Tuk tuk ride out of town
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Ella was one of my favorite places in Sri Lanka - not the town Ella as it is too touristic for my taste but because of the beauty of nature around that gives you plenty of chances to escape the mass and to enjoy mother’s nature. Lucky Star is above the town and a perfect spot to embrace the nature around. The view from the roof top restaurant where breakfast is served is spectacular. The breakfast was delicious with different local specialties every day. They just started with dinner and cooking classes. The bed was the most comfortable on my journey and with the fresh air during the night I could sleep very well. I came out every morning at 5 am to see step by step how the sun was rising. Book a room with a view - I loved this small balcony and the view in the mountains. Every day I took some minutes to hang in the swing on the balcony - that even increases this peaceful experience. The owner is very caring and takes lots of effort so that his guests are feeling well and happy. If you need a taxi, a TukTuk, a tea or some curry - he will find a solution. Also the kitchen staff and the cook/chef were great people who do their best to let you feel well treated. The best thing you can do - treat them the same way, be appreciative and grateful and let them know when you are happy - I’m sure you will be. :)
3.8 Mediocre
Pros: Nothing
Cons: Small rooms uncomfortable location. No cattle for tea
6.7 Good
Pros: The best sunset from the upper terrace. Tasty breakfast. We rented a scooter from the owner in a reasonable price.
Cons: The rooms are very small, hard to move around with backpacks. We had the room next to reception on the lower level. It was very noisy in the night. The shower had problem with the pressure. The handshower was broken when we came, the owner fix it with tape and promised to change the it the next day but he didn’t do it.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The food was great. The staff were all lovely.
1.0 Poor
Pros: Nice view
Cons: Worst experience in Sri Lanka hotels, though the most expensive hotel in my trip: - Under construction, drilling works taking place when we've got there - asked the staff to stop right away, which they did - No phone in the rooms - No laundry service and no willingness to find a solution such as asking a took-took to get your laundry in the city which is very convenient though - Very, but very poor breakfast - The rooms are not sound insulated, you can hear your neighbor TV or talking - The towels were grey not white, very poor quality of fabric, not absorbing the water on you body, almost like plastic towels :( - Broken dust bin in the bathroom - The pool water not warmed, one of the pool ladder broken down under my kid feet - Not enough space for car parking and the road to reach there is rubbish, almost impossible to make it by car - Room slippers very small, like for the kids (my number is EUR 41, so not a big feet-er though)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view is simply amazing. Loved the location, walking distance from the 9 arch bridge and easy to go into town. It’s located on the mountain so a lot of stairs and up and down, but that’s to expect in Ella. Note: i read a lot of mixed reviews before booking and I think I realize why, there is another hotel called Mount Heavens that is older and seems more run down, people can be mixing those up.
Cons: The food was ok, but could be improved. Since you do a lot of treks around Ella, they should have the best possible restaurant to go along with the rest of the ambience.
1.0 Poor
Pros: View
Cons: Dirty room smelling like sewage. Also large shower drain over flooding with sewage water and flooded our room. Staff only brought bucket and mop for us to do the cleaning.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: View was incredible. Clean rooms and great staff
Cons: For the price there wasn’t much to do at the hotel. So we ended out all the time wish wasn’t bad but could of stayed somewhere cheaper. That said, view and pool was worth the price if you’re looking for that
7.0 Good
Pros: Great location, amazing views!!!
Cons: We had lunch one day and the food was very bad! A salad and chicken breast - maybe our fault because we didn’t order Sri Lankan food. A bit chaotic at breakfast, not much choice. We weren’t told you had to order Sri Lankan breakfast in advance so couldn’t have it. Western breakfast quite poor - eggs, bread and fruit. For the price, you’d expect much better quality and variety.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: This place has the most amazing view and a beautiful pool. Well worth it for that. It’s a reasonably easy walk from the township (but straight up a hill, no view without elevation!) There is a bit of wear and tear around the place but nothing too dramatic that detracts from comfort. Also the first place we’ve stayed in all of Sri Lanka that has hand towels in the bathroom!
Cons: Coffee in the room would be great (not just tea).
6.0 Good
Pros: stunning views from our room staff were friendly
Cons: Comaparably expensive - stayed places costing less but better standard all round than this property. Maintenance needs to be kept up.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a wonderful stay. Even though the building is quite old, the rooms are really nice and clean, have a very comfortable bed and a balcony with an amazing view! It's a bit of a walk to the little town with all the Bars and Restaurants, but you can always grab a tuk tuk or rent a bike like us, which is always the best option to get around and be independent in my opinion. Great value for money. Would definitely stay again.
7.5 Good
Pros: Deluxe room we had was great! Nice view over the mountains and bathroom was nice and big
Cons: The toilet didn’t flush very well and the deluxe room was up a lot of a stairs. Last few steps were very steep. Laundry service is not worth the cost, our clothes were returned with a strange yellow tint to them. Staff didn’t speak great English apart from one guy. They offered to organise train tickets for us and forgot to until later in the day so we missed out on tickets for the train we wanted to get.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Great staff Good breakfast Amazing view Great value for money
Cons: Bathroom missed curtain/class seperator.
7.5 Good
Pros: The views form the balcony. Tea in the room. Four poster bed with mosquito net. So cool.
Cons: It is quite an adventure to get here. It’s a 10 minute walk uphill on a busy road to Ella town (if you’re walking, waterproofs and a head torch very useful for the return journey). It all felt a bit damp. And a bit other worldly.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was great, lovely pancakes. The view from the hotel is fantastic. The staff were very helpful as when we got to the hotel we were wet through from very heavy rain and a lot of our belongings were wet too, the hotel arranged for our things to go to a laundry and it was brought back washed and dry by 9.30am the following day.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is situated in the middle of the hill which was not hard to be found by our driver. We were kindly given the room in the top floor which overlooks the mountain range in the distance. We got up very early one morning to see the sun rise from our balcony and surprisingly, some monkeys also joined us watching sunrise together! The facilities at the hotel are excellent and simple. Staff were extremely kind and helpful.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Great location only a short walk to the main town of Ella. We also had a beautiful view from our room and had a microwave and a kettle. The room was huge and comfortable. I would stay here again
Cons: - internet hardly worked - tv didn’t work - can hear people in rooms next to you

Cons: Certainty no.
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.

Pros: Great location as you are pretty close to town but far enough away that it is peaceful and quiet. Easy to go to sleep listening to the sounds of the forest. Breakfast is plentiful and is served at your balcony. Internet works well and staff accommodates requests. I had asked for the owner to turn off an outside light that was lighting up our room and also asked for a couple of top sheets for the beds and our requests were taken care of. Rooms are spacious.
Cons: It definitely is a bit rustic and I would recommend higher quality sheets for the beds.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Really great accommodation. Up in the trees and we even had monkeys on our deck. The staff were lovely and made breakfast for us. The rooms are budget but exceptionally clean! Right in the centre of Ella so easy to get around.
Cons: It felt slightly damp but that was more due to the location
7.9 Good

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!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The Sri Lankan vegetable curry was literally the best we had during our four weeks trip in Sri Lanka.
Cons: It is nice and calm but a little bit far away from Ella.
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

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.
1.0 Poor
Cons: The property gave our room away and put 3 adult women in a triple room with an outside bathroom instead of the large suite we had booked months in advance. then were not apologetic about it and tried to conceal it.
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.
7.1 Good
Pros: cafe had great food very tasty, and beauitful view!

10.0 Excellent
Pros: From the moment of our arrival we were given personal service. The hotel is five minutes walk from the main centre and Is therefore nice and quiet in the evening. The gardens and the views are amazing. The owner is full of local information and is extremely helpful. The food is probably the best that we have eaten in Sri Lanka.

Pros: Amazing views!! Absolutely fantastic, and a lovely clean room with a comfortable bed. The breakfast was lovely and it was really nice to be able to use the kitchen to make tea in the evenings and store our water so it was cold when we went out in the mornings.
Cons: It was a little more expensive than other places we’ve stayed and now sure if that was justified - but it wasn’t by any means a negative experience.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view from the gest house
Cons: hotel name board was not visible
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The included breakfast was wonderful and the people working there were very friendly. It was a little walk away from town which was nice because the area was quiet, but most of all the view was spectacular! It was a very clean and comfortable stay.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: View was brilliant, personnel very friendly. I got a tea as I arrived. A Little bit away from the main road but very quiet. So no disadvantage at all in Ella.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: First of all the location is kind of magic, thanks to the amazing direct view on Ella Rock and the waterfall. We stayed two nights with our 2,5 years old daughter and from our one month in Sri Lanka, this might have been the warmest place we stayed at. Ella is quite touristy - which can be a bit disappointing or annoying - but since the Brilliant View is located 1km from the centre it is very quiet. Don't be afraid of the distance, as if you are sick of overpaying short tuk-tuk rides, you can easily walk to the centre (we did it with a 2,5 years old). But more than the view it's mostly for the kindness of the family (and their food!!!) that we felt so welcome at the Brilliant View, from the breakfast to the dinner in the evening, everything was made with care and attention. Thank you so much!
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable bed and pillow. Good blanket. Clean room with beautiful view on the mountains.
Cons: The pressure in the shower was not good. Very low. Further, there it was not loud, but there were some dogs outside barking and night, which is not the fault of the guesthouse, but you as a guest should be aware of.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The host were very hospitable. Value for money. 10 ppl 4 rooms Rs.19,500. Great. Super breakfast as well. The waterfall view is great
Cons: Nothing to comment
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great quite location over looking beautiful green hills and a waterfall, a nice little walk away from the from main road and busy town centre. A good home cooked breakfast made fresh everyday. Friendly and helpful hosts.

Pros: The owner was the best we could've asked for. He was so welcoming and even picked us up from the street because we didn't find the property. They cooked dinner just for us and tried to help us with every question that we had. Great breakfast with the most beautiful view. You can even see a waterfall and a sunrise every morning. Everything was perfekt!

Pros: - room was very basic but super clean and well-maintained - fantastic and helpful Staff (Sanju helped us organize motorbike and gave us good advise) - the view from the tarrace was beyond our expextations. Simply WOW!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's an amazing place! Very beautiful nature around, stunning view from the room and very helpful and hospitable guys work there. You should be able to go upstairs to reach the hotel, but it's really worth it! Nice breakfast included and for small price you can order dinner in advance. Rooms are very comfy, clean and have balcony with chairs to chill and enjoy the view of mountains and waterfall, wow! Ella is a nice city, modern restaurants, nice shops and surrounded by beautiful nature.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The view is amazing and the staff were very friendly and helpful
Cons: It is difficult to reach by car or tuk tuk because of the poor roads
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was very convenient and away from the busy town but still easily assessable to transport and food. The staff were very polite and helpful. They will find you transport for reasonable price. The food was good. If you choose the balcony view room, you are in for a treat !
Cons: It could be difficult to use/ navigate the path of stairs that leads to the main road after dark. The other option is a narrow and badly corroded road which is a longer route to reach the main road. I think for someone with a disability this could cause issue. For everyone else this is more of a nitpick.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view from this guest house is spectacular. We got a lovely sunset and an amazing sunrise. We had dinner and breakfast here which were both good. Service was great. Very clean, comfy bed, hot shower. We would stay again. The road to the guest house is inaccessible by car, the owner will collect you in his tuktuk.

1.0 Poor
Pros: Nice view
Cons: Worst experience in Sri Lanka hotels, though the most expensive hotel in my trip: - Under construction, drilling works taking place when we've got there - asked the staff to stop right away, which they did - No phone in the rooms - No laundry service and no willingness to find a solution such as asking a took-took to get your laundry in the city which is very convenient though - Very, but very poor breakfast - The rooms are not sound insulated, you can hear your neighbor TV or talking - The towels were grey not white, very poor quality of fabric, not absorbing the water on you body, almost like plastic towels :( - Broken dust bin in the bathroom - The pool water not warmed, one of the pool ladder broken down under my kid feet - Not enough space for car parking and the road to reach there is rubbish, almost impossible to make it by car - Room slippers very small, like for the kids (my number is EUR 41, so not a big feet-er though)
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The view is simply amazing. Loved the location, walking distance from the 9 arch bridge and easy to go into town. It’s located on the mountain so a lot of stairs and up and down, but that’s to expect in Ella. Note: i read a lot of mixed reviews before booking and I think I realize why, there is another hotel called Mount Heavens that is older and seems more run down, people can be mixing those up.
Cons: The food was ok, but could be improved. Since you do a lot of treks around Ella, they should have the best possible restaurant to go along with the rest of the ambience.
1.0 Poor
Pros: View
Cons: Dirty room smelling like sewage. Also large shower drain over flooding with sewage water and flooded our room. Staff only brought bucket and mop for us to do the cleaning.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: View was incredible. Clean rooms and great staff
Cons: For the price there wasn’t much to do at the hotel. So we ended out all the time wish wasn’t bad but could of stayed somewhere cheaper. That said, view and pool was worth the price if you’re looking for that
7.0 Good
Pros: Great location, amazing views!!!
Cons: We had lunch one day and the food was very bad! A salad and chicken breast - maybe our fault because we didn’t order Sri Lankan food. A bit chaotic at breakfast, not much choice. We weren’t told you had to order Sri Lankan breakfast in advance so couldn’t have it. Western breakfast quite poor - eggs, bread and fruit. For the price, you’d expect much better quality and variety.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: This place has the most amazing view and a beautiful pool. Well worth it for that. It’s a reasonably easy walk from the township (but straight up a hill, no view without elevation!) There is a bit of wear and tear around the place but nothing too dramatic that detracts from comfort. Also the first place we’ve stayed in all of Sri Lanka that has hand towels in the bathroom!
Cons: Coffee in the room would be great (not just tea).
6.0 Good
Pros: stunning views from our room staff were friendly
Cons: Comaparably expensive - stayed places costing less but better standard all round than this property. Maintenance needs to be kept up.
