My group and I stayed there for one night whilst visiting Ella. We enjoyed some good food and the rooms were a good size and nice & clean. We enjoyed pancakes for breakfast and to top it off the family were so friendly, especially the kids that are adorable! Would recommend.

We had a very nice stay and it was made better by the friendly and helpful staff.

The rooms were spacious and had clean bathrooms. The hot water worked most of the time. The rooms also had little fridges and there was nice balconies and shared spaces you could sit in with any travel partners for a chat.

The food from the menu was delicious and it was nice to have an authentic Sri Lankan curry. The breakfast was generous and we enjoyed the fruit, eggs, toast and Sri Lankan offerings too.

The place was in a good location and you could walk to the main strip of restaurants and the station.

The Shadow Inn is a wonderful family-owned and operated hotel in the beautifully dramatic mountains of Sri Lanka. Set on a quiet side street it is only steps away from the activities of Ella.
The staff is friendly and helpful. The only complaint is that there is too much food at breakfast. The waiter with a beautiful smile kept bringing more -- crepes with honey, omelettes in Western or Sri Lankan style, delicate dahl, spicy coconut, fruits of every sort, pots of delicious tea (or coffee) and fresh milk.
I came with two adult grandsons in the first week of July, and none of us wanted to leave the comfort and charm of Shadow Inn.
I hope I can return.

Babi and Nangi welcomed us into their home. The room was very clean, spacious and had a nice bathroom. The breakfast is very good (local or western) and the rice and curry the serve in the evening is the best we had in our 10 day Stay. Really would recommend this place!

Me and two friends stayed here for 3 nights.
Location was great only a few minutes walk to anywhere in town. The room was very spacious with a nice bathroom and balcony.
The staff were also very accommodating and friendly. They helped organise scooter rental and also taxi rental for our trips around ella.
Would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in ella. 10/10

We spent Christmas in Shadow Inn in Ella. It was a very good choice, because the owners are very friendly, the rooms are clean and have everything you need. And especially the food was amazing. We could even ask for local breakfast and this was great.
We had the opportunity to get in touch with sri lankan culture in this guest house. It was a nice stay that we will always remember.

Very friendly and most helpful family owned hotel…
Breakfast was excellent and filling.
Room included a balcony with 2 chairs & nice views on front side. All requests were attended to immediately and corrected. Location is near nice temple and Buddha stupa. Also near several restaurants, shops, and small mini markets. Definitely recommend.

Great location 2 minute walk to the centre high street in Ella and 5 minutes from the Ella station. The staff are extremely friendly and the rooms are clean with en-suite as well. Fast WiFi available. The breakfast was perfect to fuel you for a day of travelling. Would absolutely recommend this for any travellers that are passing through Ella.
