3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed at the kings suite. Quite a big room and a big bathroom. But that's about it. Hopeless service. No one comes to assist with the luggage although the person in charge said he will send someone to take the luggage to the room since the climb to the hotel is too steep from the parking. No value for money... More

The place where the hotel is located kicks in adrenaline .. Perfectly located on top of richmond hill which gives u a brilliant view of the kandy town.. The ambience of the suite is brilliant and the people of the house are the best in service:) Overall the place is worth for every penny u spend in this lovely place... More

OK, here is the thing. The location and the view are great, but the rooms and décor are a bit luxury, a bit quirky with a polyglot of decoration, but very clean. The buffet meals are good, if not a bit overcooked sometimes from having the chafing flame on too high?

My friend and I stayed here and really loved it! Yes, it's a little tired around the edges, yes the breakfast could be better but it's forgiven any short fall because we loved it! Great value, fab views, extremely helpful staff, huge room, great service and for the price..... excellent.

We loved the views from the The Richmond House - you can see all across the valley below, and even see the train make it's way towards Kandy. The setting is quite dramatic, and yet quite convenient to Kandy - roughly 10 mins via tuk-tuk. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, and secured us a good, safe driver for... More

Had a great night on 2014 August. Highly recommended to go for the Room no 1, kings suit, if you are honeymooners. Friendly staff and good foods. Good to have a dinner outside in the balcony coz the view is great. Good place to stay. Recommended

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights with two young children and we all very much enjoyed our stay. The rooms were spacious and the large 4 poster canopied beds a great hit with the children. The breakfast buffet set us up for the day and as soon as we required a carriage a Tuk Tuk was made available... More

We stayed here as three couples in three of the hotel's supposedly best rooms. Everyone had a terrible time. At first glance, the rooms look nice - spacious and fitted with colonial furniture. On closer inspection, however, you can see the place is in very bad condition. The main problem is the lack of cleanliness. There were stains on the... More

Richmond hill was extremely homely and the staff was amazing. They sent a car to fetch us from the airport. Right from the min we were greeted till we were dropped off at Galle we were very well taken care off. The breakfast n dinner were amazing. My fav dish was their capsicum curry (wish I had the recipe). The... More
