"Perfect place to stay! Don’t stay in Ella town, it’s noisy, busy and views are poor. This hotel is up the hill so it has incredible views from every room and from the restaurant- the pictures really don’t do it justice. The best view we’ve ever woken up to! Plus, it’s only 5mins in a tuk tuk into town for dinner (approx 300lkr) Nothing is too much trouble for the staff- they helped us organise cooking lessons, moped rental and an amazing surprise birthday party for our friend. We were going to stay at 98 Acres but it was sold out- we still visited for a drink and thought Serenites views were even better but for a far more reasonable price. I will recommend to any friends and family visiting Ella. Thank you so much Serenite Ella."

"We had a really good time and were well looked after by the superb staff. Our room had sweeping views down the valley and towards Ella town. The hotel is reached by a steep and narrow road which means that it is away from the traffic but still within walking distance of the railway station and the town."

"We booked two nights and extended to six. The two mountain view rooms are new with wonderful and scenic views. Most people arrive and try for a second night but it usually gets booked by someone else. Ella is a wonderful place with some hiking, visits to tea factories and a waterfall make it worth 2 or 3 nights. Rooms are new, clean and bright. The family is wonderful and caters to your every need. Just ask. We wanted a top sheet so we asked and they brought us one. The Location is very close to town, but unmarked. When you get off train, head downhill and take a left onto the main road. When you get to Main intersection take a left and you will see a small police hut on your right. Continue up the hill towards the Ella Super Sign. In another 100 meters turn right just past the green building and in front of a small sewing shop. The small road goes up a steep hill with a school. Go past the school and down the steep hill to the homestay. Filling breakfast included."

"This hotel is located in the most amazing jungle - far from Ella town, but right on a river. Unfortunately, our daughter was sick so we had to check out before being able to walk to the waterfall or do any of the activities the resort has to offer. The hotel generously gave us a full refund, even though we were not entitled to one and helped us out in our time of need. Big thumbs up!"
