Ended up doing a last min reservation for the King's suite at this hotel. The room was amazing! Huge, eclectic with a fantastic view. They provided us an infant cot at a short notice too. Free wifi, lots of balcony spaces made for a great stay! The people were super nice and helpful. We had breakfast and dinner here and... More

This place was loveable and I expect we'll be back. The service was incredibly friendly. The place was a loveable little place a little way out of town with a great view. Breakfast was good. The room had decent TV. We had an absolutely awesome private garden - a proper size overlooking the valley and we loved it. There wasn't... More

The Richmond house is about 10mins outside of Kandy in the hills, about 500rups in a tuk tuk into the centre ( less if you haggle), it is up steeps hills followed by steeps stairs however it is worth it for the view over kandy and to watch the sun go down and storms over hills miles away. We had... More

We travelled as a family of five and though the rooms were big enough to fit five persons we decided on staying in two rooms: The Governors suite and The Queens suite. The only fault I can find in the Queens suite is the fact that it is a bit too damp, but it was no where bad enough for... More

Through our fault entirely we had made a mistake with dates when booking this hotel. We only realised this when travelling across from Ella the day before. We had booked the King's Suite for 2 nights and by luck we could still have that room for the first night, but had to move over to room 6 for our second... More

Booked a suite here, and what a magnificent room - the place was stylish and very clean - the balcony view was exceptional - worth every penny. The hotel is slightly out the way but in my opinion worth the journey.

This hotel is a few minutes out of Kandy city centre which we thought would be a bit of an inconvenience, turned out to be a blessing, it was just a short ride into town which was a fun ride in a tuk tuk that the hotel organises for you. The rooms were amazing, the breakfast was great and was... More
