Pros: Unfortunately we literally only stayed here for a bed as we did a full day safari. The location was amazing though with a perfect view of the lake. The hotel owner also drove us to the centre of town for free and recommended a great restaurant for us to eat at.
6,7 Good
Pros: The lodge is nicely placed but difficult to get to (and as well to get to town, for instance for dinner). There is no restaurant at the place but only few basic local dishes are served. Otherwise, very friendly staff, many birds, view on the lake and the nearby dagoba. We planned for 3 nights but left after 2 days, partly because of the lacking restaurant. As well, payment by credit cards was not possible (other than stated on the website).
Cons: Lack of a restaurant (other than mentioned on the website).
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The view form the lake are very nice and the staff are very helpful
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The staff (Ishnan and the cook) were extremely friendly and attentive. Breakfast and dinner were quite tasty and good value for money. It's a remote place with great views to the lake. Ideal to enjoy it for a couple of days. Free shuttle to the city centre whenever you want.
Cons: Not so easy to walk to the city centre.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Really nice room with good air con. Staff were very lovely, and picked us up from the bus station and dropped us back for free. Food was nice as well. Location is far from the town right by the lake which is very peaceful and very beautiful but nothing much around it.
Cons: Very far from the town so you are kind of stuck at the property for dinner etc.
8,8 Excellent

6,7 Good
Pros: Quite location by the lake. Very friendly and helpful manager.
Cons: Property quite dated, old faux leather sofa downstairs has definitely seen better days. Plug sockets poorly wired and dated, fan above bed looked like it was going to fall down. Limited menu with no Sri Lankan food either. We went into the town but there is very little choice there as well. However, it was ok for one night stay to visit National Park.

5,8 Okay
Pros: Proximity to the national park.
Cons: The sofa in the reception and the chairs in the room were not comfortable. The food was very disappointing compare to the other cinnamon hotels we have stayed at. Not enough seating capacity in the restaurant for all the in house guest. The room needs a revamp . The price they charge for food doesn't match amount and quality of food you get on your plate. We understand we were in the wild but dogs barking in the night was unacceptable.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location for our safari in the Yala National Park; close to beautiful walks along the wild beach. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious with comfortable beds. The service was excellent from the reception to the cleaning staff and the whole resort was professionally run. The food in the restaurant was very good and the buffet breakfast was top class, with a great variety of choice. The swimming pool area was a great place to relax after a safari, with lovely views over the lagoon where you could view crocodiles, wild buffalo and bird life. Cinnamon Wild was a highlight of our wonderful holiday in Sri Lanka. A place not to be missed!

Cons: Nothing
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Great place to stay if you're in Ella for a few days. The hotel is only a year old so rooms are large, clean and very comfortable. It's in a nice quiet spot, only a 5-minute walk to town (near the train station). The Manager is really lovely & super helpful - will go out of his way to help you with anything you need, from cooking classes to laundry. Even made us a beautiful pot of tea one afternoon and brought out some biscuits, which the girls especially loved!
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Nice accommodation for our trip to Yalaand we liked the pool :) Rooms where clean; smelled a little bit like cleanser but it was okay! Staff was very friendly; the owner helped us with all our questions and when we ordered curd for dessert she first said, she hasn’t it in the house. But then she bought it especially for us. So lovely!! :)
Cons: Since we booked a room without AC (our fault!!) it was way too hot. Better book with AC :D
8,3 Excellent
Pros: Clean and comfortable hotel. Good pool. Friendly staff plus helpful in organising safari trip.
Cons: Room could have done with a safe (stated in facilities) and a mini fridge. Restaurant service a little slow but no great concern to us. Not the full menu option for dinner when we ate there but food was good and well priced. Little out of town and no obvious other eating options in the area so tuk tuk required.

7,9 Good
Pros: Good location. Staff was very friendly except the Manager.
Cons: The attitude of the Manager.
9,2 Excellent
Pros: Being greeted with a cold towel and drink was an incredibly great start to the stay! The room was exceptional - comfortable bed, air con & fan, good shower & toiletries in the bathroom.
Cons: Although there was a varied menu and various dining options (a la carte, buffet, room service) the quality of the food wasn’t the best especially considering the price in relation to other establishments in Sri Lanka.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: We've been to more than 10 hotels in Sri Lanka during our trip and it's clearly the best one, especially in such price range (the restaurant is expensive for Sri lankan prices but worth every cent of it. They also prepared us takeaway breakfast as we had to go to park at 5.30am). Perfect room - no single weakness spotted unlike it usually is in all other sri lankan hotels; very nice pool and gym; friendly personnel. We were really sad we only stayed one night.
Cons: We were woken up by some animal running on the roof all night, but the personnel offered to move us to another room straight away.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Very good room and cheap price.
7,9 Good
Pros: There’s a nice vibe to the place and good location for safari
Cons: The take away breakfasts packs that were prepared for the morning safari were very poor especially considering this resort rate themselves as 5 star. It was like a kiddies lunch
6,3 Good
Pros: It's a beautiful property; however it could use regular maintenance.
Cons: Not well maintained for a 4 star rated hotel. The electronic kettle had water in it when I arrived and had hard water stains. The food and desserts can also use more attention.
7,5 Good
Pros: Perfect stop for a night to go on a safari. Good hotel and ideal for what we needed it to be.
Cons: downside was the food- don’t go for the buffet dinner or packed breakfast. Really not worth it!
9,2 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is nice and the staff made everything to make our stay a good experience. They organised a trip to Yala which was very good, we got a very experienced driver, and in the afternoon we swam in the pool to chill after the safari. We also got massages at the spa, which I highly recommend doing it! Breakfast had a lot of choices and good quality of the food. We had two dinner at the hotel, one a la cart and one buffet,both really tasty. We reccomend the mushroom soup!!!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The food at night and breakfast time were fantastic . So much choice from Sri Lankan dishes to Western dishes ,they had everything . They helped out so much with any request we had . Would highly recommend
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The staff were amongst the very best I have even met. Very helpful and polite to everyone. There is a pool, gym, bar and restaurant on site which is great because there is not much outside the resort unless you take a tuk tuk into Tissa.

Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Could improve amenities
7,1 Good
Pros: Awesome location
Cons: Poor WiFi
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Their hospitality, cleanliness and quality of food are remarkably good.
Cons: Everything is good. But amidst all of good things there is just one thing need to be mentioned very clearly that the price 1litre bottle of water they are chaging 180 LKR whereas outside in the local market it is only 45 LKR. This is not a good practice.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Staff was amazing! Location peaceful and quiet. But be prepared to come across monkeys, lots of mosquitos and other creatures.
Cons: The driver the hotel organised for us was totally drowsy and close to falling asleep while driving. Had to talk to him all the time to stop his eyelids closing completely...
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Grate value for money..
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The staff was lovely. The trea house is Okish in itself, with good view on the river but price not justified for what you get (see below)
Cons: Trea house is totally over priced. The 100USD is not worth the value for money and really excessive compared to price vs quality of other rooms we slept in in Sri Lanka. Room was noisy, Bathroom was old and small and the 2 beds are blocking the entire space (why not take one single bed out to have some extra space?). We booked the room ourselves, so we are the ones to blame, however we expected more quality for what we got. Price would be more justified around 45USD
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Spacious rooms, good selection of food, great safari trip and the staff and especially Delief was outstanding.
Cons: You have to pay extra for AC
8,3 Excellent
Pros: The staff at River Face Inn are incredibly nice, kind, courteous and helpful and go out of their way to help in every way they can. Breakfast was fantastic; good coffee, lovely fruit, and they also gave us pancakes. We thought the dinner was delicious, particularly the fish curry and we ate there twice.
Cons: The shower wasn't very good with very little water pressure. And the internet was incredibly slow. It might also be a good idea if they were able to put a small refrigerator in the bedrooms.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: Location
Cons: Cleanliness of bedsheets.

7,9 Good
Pros: Room was realy nice. Safary was for good price (after the call to manager)
Cons: In the description of the resort is that every room has a ac when we arrived the ac was for 1500 more. Then before we arrived we get email with a prices of the safary which was reasonable so we were ready to buy it at the resort when we arrived the prices for all charged up 5-10 dollars more then in message. We needed to call manager (or owner we don't know) of the resort and he sorted it out (ac for 800 and safary for price in message) but the person on the premise was totally good for nothing all he said was that this is the price and message or booking reservation was not his problem.
