"Manju and family were very friendly and helpful. Food was good - ask for Sri Lankan breakfast not western. Location is stunning, although the short walk to town along a trail was a bit precarious in wet weather, and with a toddler. Tuk tuk pick up service helpful. Views of Ella's rock beautiful. Rooms clean and basic although our room was not cleaned during our 3 night stay. Pillows are miniature, and blankets small, so sleeping not fully comfortable. Balcony/ porch outside room with hammock was lovely. "

"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."

"This is a small but very nice boutique hotel with a genuinely amazing view. The rooms are huge, very nice bathroom with a modern shower. It was slightly tricky to find the first time but once you find it you can find it again easily. The room had no ac, just a fan, but that fan was more than enough, the room was quite cool anyway. The bed was comfortable and we liked the room design. The staff were very nice and so helpful, helping us to book tuk tuks and arranging breakfast. The wifi was fast and worked great in the room. The main draw of this place is the view, it really is worth it. We got a great price, and weren't expecting a five star hotel, just a comfortable place. It definitely exceeded our expectations. It's close enough to Ella town, having a car meant we had no trouble getting to and from places. "

"I have to mention that by the time we were staying at this place it was still undergoing construction work and while our unit was fully finished the one next door was still a complete construction site which made as doubtful in the very beginning. We arrived after a 7hour ride from Dambulla in Ella at Country Homes. Its a little hidden but very close to the little town center (100m). We were warmly welcomed by the host and brought to our "lot" cabin. The room was very new and even though very simply equipped, clean and tidy and therefore welcoming. Right now there are 2 out of three or four units finished and the owner told us to be done with the rest by next season - just to mention, there was no nuisance whatsoever from the construction site. The next morning we were enjoying a very nice view over the hillside of Ella from our room located behind the family's house elevated on the slope. The local / traditional (?) breakfast was served at their house on the terrace or in their living room and was very good. Its a family run business which makes it even nicer to see how they but effort in the place to make the guests feel comfortable. I wish them good luck and recommend this place to people who are looking for a nice place for good value and lovely hosts, situated in the hills of Sri Lanka, perfect for hikes etc."
