    Location, service, staff, breakfast, everything! Pearl view was the highlight of our stay in Ella. The staff were kind, courteous and extremely helpful. The location gives an incredible view and provides a lovely relaxing back drop to the hikes and attractions of the surrounding area

    Better to call Hiden Pearl Guesthouse, the most beautylulls sunrises just from balcony or close to tea plantation. Sampath and this family were very very helpful during my stay in Ella.

    Nothing to say

    The bedroom is well maintained. The bed is one of the most comfortable i slept. Not all bedrooms are the same. Some are more cosy. There is a balcony. Suggest the host let us have breakfast at the balcony. The host prepared a coconut honey pancake one day. A pleasant surprise. The host communicates with us via whatsapp.

    The location is my biggest problem. Not all tuk tuk are willing to drop us at the doorstep. From the drop off point, the walk is strenuous and long. The cost of tuk tuk is also the most expensive. Going town is inconvenient. The inconvenience deducts many points. Suggest the host absorbs the cost of tuk tuk when we come from the train station or going to the train station. The electricity is not in place. The bedside lightings are not working. The room is dim. The breakfast is cold. The dinner options is basic and limited. Suggest the host can let us have breakfast at our balcony. The host is reserved person. His response feels lacking.

    The property was initially hard to find due to us arriving by our rental tuk tuk, if you are arriving on foot then the signs are clear for the stepped entrance, if you need to park then the ‘roads’ leading there were extremely steep, narrow and bumpy for approximately 1km. When we finally arrived Sampat was there to greet us warmly and offer his help with luggage. Tea / juice is served on arrival. Our room was the highest of all rooms so the view was pretty spectacular, specially for moon rise, we were luckily enough to be there for the poya super snow moon. Wake up early for the beautiful sunrise to be enjoyed on the large balcony. Our room had a fridge, a large bathroom and a super comfy bed, the fan was enough as the temperature drops in the evening. If you’re walking from town to the hotel expect approximately 500 steps and quite a few steepish road bends, you can alternatively get a tuk tuk and walk the final 169 steps up, the full walk from town to the hotel only takes around 20 minutes and is good exercise after all the yummy food and beers on offer in Ella. Breakfast was nice, be sure to let them know if you have any special requirements and they will work around you. Recommend Pearl View for the views and the hospitality, just be aware of the climb.

    Parking facility was difficult to get to
