A nice converted house on a hilltop overloking the busy suberbs of Kandy. It is a bit far away from the city. The room was good except the bathroom was a bit dirty with mild growing on the tiles and curtains. The staf and food where excelent.

I stayed with my husband and parents at Richmond House for 2 nights. It's a converted plantation bungalow, high on the hill above Kandy with amazing views looking over the city and surrounds. It does take 30min or so to get into the city centre but I preferred being slightly further out. We had standard rooms which were large with... More

We generally had a pleasant stay at this hotel. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Free wifi was a bonus. Breakfast was alright, nothing fantastic but good enough. Our only issue was how far it was from Kandy.

Enjoyed the stay for two nights very much. Much as per reviews, a bit dated but I liked the atmosphere, and the old colonial era photos on the stairs! Got an upgrade to Planters Suite, which has a balcony and this for me was a hilight. Watching the sun rise over Kandy is a memory I will keep forever. Yes... More

From the moment we were met in the airport to the time we were dropped back at the airport our stay at Richmond House was a wonderful experience. Lucky, our guide had lived in Melbourne and he drove us for all of our five day stay. He spoke excellent English and was very helpful and thoughtful. Lucky drove us to... More

Quirky hotel with motivated interested staff. Location is quite remote and access up the driveway is scarily steep. Ask to use the hotel three wheeler for safer access. Misty elevated location with marvellous views. Worth a visit.

From the personal airport pickup through to the travel arrangements upon leaving including exceptional service, fantastic room with outstanding views and warm hospitality with fine food, our stay at Richmond House was one of the highlights of our trip. We cannot find fault with this establishment and highly recommend.
