Sumethra was amazing. So friendly and happy. We really enjoyed our stay at Holiday Homes with her. It's a close walk to the Main Street and it is a great spot to watch the sunset. Laundry service is available. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Ella is a really nice place. We booked the accomodation for four adult, and we get a a double and a 1,5 size bet. Only 1electric plug in the room. We cant get moscuito plug, from the guest house. There was too high humidity in the room, I suggest to build an AC in!

We enjoyed our stay here in Ella. Sumethra was welcoming and helpful, giving us advice on things to do in Ella. The pictures are very accurate to how the rooms look. The room was nice. The only bad thing was the moisture in the room. It seemed like no matter what we did (opened windows during the day, kept the fan on...), our bed and our clothes still felt very damp. Otherwise, our stay here was good!

Our first disappointment on AirBnb. We stayed in 6 different guesthouses while travelling in Sri Lanka: all of them were cheaper than this one + a lot more comfortable and had AC + unlike here we were greeted with a welcome drink every time. Sumethra is a nice person but for the price that she requests you will guaranteed find a much better place in the area so keep looking. If you do choose to stay at Holiday Homes expect the following: 1. No nice views but a construction site all around. 2. Barely any furniture in the room so you will have to unpack on the not-so-clean floor. 3. Broken shower spraying water in all possible directions. 4. No Wi-Fi in the room and very slow crappy Wi-Fi in the lobby. 5. Amenities mentioned in the listing are a pure joke. There's no TV or cable TV, no hot tub, barely any Internet, and also no parking was allowed so we had to leave the car on the road. 6. Expect to use dirty stained blankets, curtains, and towels. 7. Very loud aggressive dogs that are running around the house and start barking and fighting like crazy at 5 in the morning. 8. In general, there's no fresh feeling to the place. It just feels old and moldy. On top of everything, the breakfast that is also listed among amenities is apparently not free. Or at least Sumethra tried to charge us 700 rupees per breakfast (1400 total for two persons in two days that we stayed). I gotta say that this quite expensive (in sri-lankan standards) breakfast included barely toasted bread with some eggs and tea - all other guesthouses we stayed at had real feasts compared to this one! Anyway, when we showed Sumethra her AirBnb listing and refused to pay again for the supposedly "free" breakfast, she smiled naively and apologised for the mistake. However, as I see from some other reviews here, she did manage to charge other AirBnb guests for breakfast. So please stay alert even if it's not a matter of a couple hundred rupees saved but a matter of principle as well as honesty and hospitality. Conclusion: I advice you to stay away from this place and it's shady owners. I also hope that it was our first and last negative experience on AirBnb. We don't expect fancy hotels as we are experienced backpackers. We simply expect to get what's promised in the listing, we want to get what we pay for. P.S. One good thing about the house is hot water (actually, HOT! which is not common in Sri-Lanka) Location is also quite all right but then again the village is so tiny, it's difficult to find bad location there.

we didnt understand why the reviews were so good? we found that it was overpriced and dirty, and the hostess was everything but nice. We arived with the 4 of us, we called the day before and we send a message as wel. when we came to the guesthouse only 1 room was booked for us (a triple room for 4 ppl) we clearly mentioned that we wanted 2 double rooms. she first blamed Airbnb and then us for a wrong booking. meaning one couple had to spend in a small humid room. the other couple spend the night in a nice looking room. but the sheets where so smelly like mold. she did refuns a 1000roepies to the olther couple because the room was cheaper. BUT we asked if breakfast was included she sad yes. when we left she asked us to pay for the breakfast that was (Coincidentally a 1000 roepies for 2 nights) 400 p p foe the first night and 100 for the breakfast take away. so ond couple didnt get there refund and the other couple had to pay extra. she was everything but nice, constantly trying to sell us massages and taxi's of "her friends" this was by far the worst guesthouses we spend in our long backpack history.

Pretty good guesthouse, but I don't think as amazing compared to others in Ella for this price. Our view was ok, but not as stunning and unobstructed as some in the area. This is not one of the super amazing views that you can find in other guesthouses nearby for similar price. The shower in this room was amazing! Very nice hot water. Best shower in my time in Sri Lanka. Beds and room were clean and comfortable. There was some construction happening (adding a second floor above) that was a little noisy, but this will probably be done in about March 2016.
