The space

Rathnayaka’s home is located some 500 metres from the town. It’s surrounded by different types of palm trees and has a nice natural feel to it. The house itself is a new, two-story building, built especially for guests. Each of the three rooms has a private bathroom with hot water and a nice balcony to read a book or just enjoy the view.

Interaction with guests

The Rathnayakas live nearby with their four children and are always available to take care of you. Mr. Rathnayaka hardly speaks English, but he understands enough to cater to you needs. Ms. Rathnayaka can cook for you if you like. Part of the Rathnayaka household is their friendly dog. The unfortunate little bugger got hit by a train long ago and lost part of his nose, but not his curiosity and lust for life :)

We enjoyed our stay at Rathnayaka's - the room was very clean, the host was friendly, and the food was good. My only comment is that we found the breakfast and dinner to be overpriced comparably speaking.

Staying at Rathnayaka's was an absolute pleasure! My sister and I arrived at 6pm on Sri Lanka's New Year's Eve after a long day of travel and the family did not hesitate to prepare a wonderful dinner for us. The room was comfortable and clean if anything the pictures do not do this place justice. The family hosting is so kind and all the food they prepared was delicious. We had initially only booked for 1 night but had to stay a 2nd because we enjoyed it so much. The location is perfect right up the hill from Ella's Main Street and all the different hiking paths to the town's points of interest. They are also a short walk from the train station if you are planning on taking the train ride to Kandy or anywhere. The views from the room and rooftop where breakfast is served were breathtaking. I would highly recommend this location for your stay in Ella. Thank you again for the truly lovely stay!

The room was ideal for a short stay in Ella, it was clean and the wifi was excellent. Location was also great, with great views and just a 5 minute walk into Ella Main Street. It is good value for money and i would recommend

Our stay was excellent! The rooms are clean and basic, just what you need since you are outside the whole day. The family will do anything to make your stay comfortable. We had a warm welcome and we felt very comfortable. The family gives personal attention and they will do anything to make your stay pleasant. The breakfast is delicious and you have a great view on Ella Rock. The location is one road down hill to the city center! We would definitely recommend this place!

Mr Rathnayaka was a lovely host and picked us up at the train station. Great breakfast on the rooftop terrace. Less than 5min walk into town. Mr Rathnayaka organised us a driver to drive us to Nureliya and Udawalawe. Would definitely recommend this place :)
