After a rather awful three wheeler trip from town (the driver took us on an extended trip around the other side of town and then wanted more, not less, money!!) we finally arrived to a charming welcome from the hosts. Your sense of arrival to Richmond House is really lovely with such a wonderful entrance and staircases...yes plural! We had... More

The hotel has a charming 'old world hotel' feel to it. beautiful interior, large staircases, large balconies and wide french doors. The meals the hotel offered were quite delicious, the accommodations were comfortable and it was easy to get into the main city of Kandy itself.

We stayed in the Kings suit for two nights. What a gorgeous room. Reminiscent of old colonial charm. Maybe a little cluttered with furniture but the planter chairs and the four poster bed made you feel like you were staying in another era. The bathroom could have been definitely better. Th tub sent water sprawling ever where. Also breakfast was... More

The Richmond House was in a lovely setting, the staff and manager were very attentive, the room was nice but a little dated and needed an uplift. We enjoyed our stay there the view was amazing. However the food wasn't very nice, the food was aimed at westerners they should stick with Sri Lankan fare.

The house is situated on top of the mountain and the view is wonderful. The house is British colonial style and beautifuly furnished.Unfortunately it is a bit run down and ants a all over the place. With little effort it could be made into a gem-but it is not. The staff were helpfull and nice. Yona S.

We loved the Richmond house in Kandy, nestled in the hills away from the noise of the city with glorious views of Kandy. The hotel had fantastic lived in style with an eclectic assortment of furniture. We stayed in the Governors Suite which had a cool swing in the room and a lovely four poster bed. The only feedback would... More

You will read all about the steep hill. Yes it's true there is one but it's just the driveway and it's about 10m and not killer but for older or less mobile people it would be a struggle. They do have a tuk tuk that could probably take you up. I believe you can walk around the side (less steep)... More

We had booked a de luxe room, but were upgraded to Planter's suite. I loved it. The bed was good, there was a seating area, frigde, kettle, balcony with chairs, in other words: all we needed. The view from the veranda was fantastic. We stayed 2 nights and had dinner at Richmond House both nights, every time buffet dinner. The... More

This place is located some kms from Kandy on a hill. When we reached the steep climb of the last few meters was exhausting at first. However the hotel was a beautiful surprise. It's an old home converted into a hotel and some rooms have been added. We got a room on top floor with beautiful view. The hotel as... More
