Friendly staff, beautiful setting, large clean rooms, comfortable bed, wonderful views, food was very good. Manager was very helpful. We stayed in the King suite which I would highly recommend. The hotel is far enough away from Kandy to be peaceful at night, but still less than 15mins by Tuktuk.

We spent 4 nights at Richmond house and enjoyed the stay immensely. Our the young children were very well looked after by the staff. They particularly liked the buffet selection and all the interesting fruit on offer. We stayed in the King's suite which easily accommodated the 5 of us. Tuk tuk ride up the hill was also a fun...

Richmond house is a boutique hotel almost on the top of the hills overlooking Kandy. We were initially provided a small room close to the dining room. When we asked about noise in the morning, we were kindly upgraded to the king suite. This room is spacious, comfortable with very heavy furniture with a view away from Kandy centre. Breakfast...

We really loved our stay at the Richmond House. The location was magnificent with outstanding views. The house is so beautiful, our room had a four poster bed and a balcony opening out on to the hills of Kandy - just perfect. The staff were so friendly and couldn't have been more helpful and the food is absolutely delicious -... More

We loved our stay at The Richmond House. Walking up the front steps and into the foyer we were transported to a bygone era. Nuwan and staff were welcoming, informative and helpful. The Governors Suite was charming, comfortable and offered beautiful views of Kandy & surrounds. Meals were freshly prepared and good. A steep, windy 400LKR tuk tuk ride gets... More

We spent two nights at The Richmond House Hotel after travelling from Jim's Farm Villa's in Matale. On arrival we were greeted by the owner who was very polite and welcoming. We were taken to room 5 which is located on the first floor. The small balcony offered lovely views of Kandy although at the time of our visit it... More

Second hotel out of five stayed in during our tour of Sri Lanka, beautiful colonial interior, clean rooms, good bathrooms, wifi, buffet food acceptable but not the freshest or hottest, staff helpful when needed but not overly attentive whilst dining. Would definitely stay again.
