Pros: Upon arrival we were fortunate enough to be upgraded to the penthouse suite which consisted of 2 rooms. It was extremely spacious with a huge living room area and a balcony, The even arranged a complimentary tuk tuk tour that brought us around to see Ella from different vantage points. Location wise its very central near the heart of town and within walking distance from the railway station. The staff were extremely polite and helpful and would highly recommend any guests who want to stay here in the future.

Pros: We were actually lucky to be upgraded to their penthouse unit, the views were incredible! Ravana heights is set in a beautiful block of land, with such pretty gardens. The rooms are a high quality and the showers were nice and hot too. The staff are very friendly and helpful, the owner recommended us to take a special tuk tuk guide to a secret location where we could do a really serene hike, it was great and felt more unique. We also found the breakfasts huge and so tasty! We were so impressed!
Cons: The bed is a little firm but it’s not too bad, still had a nice sleep!

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. The location is some kilometres (20 min approximativ.) outside of Ella, but with bus, tuktuk and shuttle organised by the staff, there are multiple options. Owner and staff are friendly and helpful.

Hotel Alta Vista - Ella - Building
7,8 Good (183 reviews)
R1 065+
Overview Reviews
In the heart of Ella, Hotel Alta Vista is within a 5-minute drive of Nine Arches Bridge and Little Adam's Peak. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
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.
