Since the location is just by the roadside, it was very noisy at night. Getting a good sleep was a problem. The bed was making so much of noise each time you turn.
The staff are very friendly and location is very near to Ella Railway Station.
Friendly staff, beautiful and clean room.
Well priced, well located, spacious for family of 4.
Awful- do not stay here!
So disappointing- do not stay here. Trust me rather stay in a home stay in Ella. I went to stay in the most fantastic home stay with a lovely local family for two nights after this terrible experience. It is incredibly noisy in the rooms as this cafe is literally right in the middle of the town next to some noisy bars. The room was dark and dingy and there were bugs in the bed. I was bitten all around my ankles by bugs. The bathroom sink was leaking and had flooded the bathroom floor before I even arrived. There was then no water to shower in the morning. I have been happily traveling alone throughout SL for two weeks and this was the first place I felt so unsafe in. Did not get a good feeling from the place. No safe in room and door had a flimsy lock. If anything, have a drink at Drink cafe or eat lunch there but trust me your experience of Ella will be far better if you choose to stay in a home stay a little off the main strip. Most of the home stays have the most fantastic views as they are set in the hills just a 5 min drive from mains trip of Ella
They let me leave my bag in the office for the afternoon whilst I went hiking. That was about it. The breakfast is okay, nothing special
The staff was not good listening about our questions and not very loyal about the answer. We were disappointed... The room was noisy too close from the road and the music is strong.
The bed and the spacious room
A good place for backpackers who like dubstep.
Dream Café is on a very busy street in the heart of the village, there is a strong smell of petrol at the front of the café, and a strong smell of curry at the back. The rooms, while spacious, are dark, you really don't want to spend much time in them. The music is very loud but does go off at about 10.30pm so fine after that. On the morning we had breakfast it was clear the kitchen wasn't properly open and the eggs we had were disgusting achieving being burnt and undercooked at the same time... It is fine if you want basic, central accommodation, but not for comfort and peace.
The rooms are very spacious with good fans and effective showers. The evening meal we had was really good.
Nice room but unbearable noise
The noise verges on unbearable. Music is blared all evening at a volume totally out of proportion with the patronage. Wifi barely worked. The hotel is right on the main drag which means you also hear loud traffic all throughout the day. For a spot of peace, opt for somewhere on a sidestreet.
The room was very spacious and well kept.
Good spot in Ella
The room was very noisy.
Nice clean large room. Hotel is situated in the centre of Ella, with everything in walking distance. Good spot to have dinner or just a drink. Good Sri Lankan fingerfood.
On the Main Street. Good food.
Staff were rude!
The staff were rude, we got ignored when we first walked in by who I think was the manager, we were then shown to our room by someone else who also didn't say a word. Our room was practically inside the restaurant so very busy and noisy early mornings and evenings. Very loud music from next door and the walls are paper thin so you can literally hear everyone's conversation. On check out the guy who worked there tried to tell us we only booked a room for one person (even though there was a double bed) it didn't say anything like this on our booking and no one said this when we arrived. He then said ok he would just charge us for breakfast and the room (even though we didn't have breakfast) when we tried to argue our point he just said "ok ok" so beware I wouldn't stay here again!
The shower pressure was good
Good stay. Easy access to the town. really value for money
Really value for money
Easy location (in the Ella center) , services are improvable
A little bit noisy at night
I like location.big room clean room and bathroom tasty breakfast
Great rooms, central location, friendly staff.... but convenient rather than restful
No aircon and right above the kitchen, so room got really hot and smelt of food at times. The trade off for being central is noise from the bar bar until late eve and then road/kitchen noise from 6am.
Central location. Great service with friendly staff who were amazing with the children we were travelling with. Lovely breakfast included and a brilliant cafe for evening meals. Really comforable, spacious and spotlessly clean rooms.
A room with no view
Absolutely no view of the mountains. No view at all. A small, dark room. Didn't feel like staying in.
A good restaurant, friendly staff. Clean room
Average clean central hotel. Good for a night or two to explore the area but i wouldn't book it as a holiday destination.
