Fabulous 8.8 From 58 reviews

Very good 8.0
Lovely owner, very helpful, everything was efficient and clean and as expected. We were especially grateful for being provided with a takeaway breakfast when we had an early start. The hotel is basic as you would expect in Ella but it was clean and very good value. The only suggestion I would make is to improve the lighting in the rooms.

This hotel is in the perfect location. It is a short walk (3m up a steep hill) from the center of Ella. However, because it is up on the hill it has beautiful views and is quiet and peaceful. The staff are amazingly helpful and responsive. Wish we had another night to enjoy!

There are so many hotels in Ella. However, I am so glad that I chose Hotel Onrock. First and foremost the view from the hotel is BREATHTAKING!!. Then the Staff. The Manager Rohan Perera (Mr Rohan as he is lovingly called) is a wonderful human. He takes care of everything. He will never say no to any request. Your comfort is utmost important to him. He is available until 9.00 pm in the night and then from 4.30 am in the morning. His customer centric attitude is amazing. His staff also follow his lead. Raja from Housekeeping is a gentle soul. Panduka from back office is great. The rooms are so clean. The dining area is breathtaking. You get to see a waterfall from the hotel. All the major landmarks in Ella are so close from the hotel. A lot of dining options nearby. I highly recommend this HOTEL.

Lovely hotel right by the town (allbeit up a very steep path!) but literally took 2 minutes to get to the main road with all the bars/restaurants. Our room was lovely, with a balcony looking out over to Ella rock and little Adam’s peak. Very comfy bed, tv, mini fridge, powerful, hot shower! Couldn’t fault this place as a lovely base to explore Ella
Chris, gb1 night romance trip
Fair 4.0
This hotel was nice enough but not worth the money. It has great views of ellas gap in the morning and a nice strong shower. We had several insect and lizard friends in our room but i think thats probably to be sxpected in that area. My major issue is i booked this hotel for the sri lankan breakfast and at no point did the host tell me i had to order it the night before so in the morning he would only offer me a crummy omelet and said i should have placed my order last night. How would i know that? The hotel is at the top of a very very steep hill but its a good workout if you like that kind of thing. Also we ate out till about 10pm and the hotel owner locked us out!! We had to bang on the doors to get back in

Amazing views!!
The views from my balcony at Hotel Onrock were simply breathtaking! The room itself was also very spacious, clean and comfortable. And it had two very powerful fans to manage the heat during the day (the room cooled down pleasantly at night). The breakfast was lovely and the dining area also had beautiful views. They were also very helpful with directions and with arranging transport to nearby sights and my next destination. A very short walk to the main street with all the restaurants.
