The Richmond house is an old British bungalow converted now into a hotel. The location this bungalow is on top of a hillock just outside Kandy city. The approach to the hotel is bit narrow and the entrance to the hotel is very steep. Once you enter the bungalow you will be amazed by the interiors. Suddenly you'll go back... More

We stayed 3 nights in Kandy in March. We stayed one night in a normal room, then in the suite. Both rooms were good. The suite was very good and well worth the additional amount. The views from both rooms were amazing – beautiful sunsets and away from any noise. The suite has a second balcony where we spent several... More

Traditional decoration, location, views and helpful staff, make this a good place to base yourself on the outskirts of Kandy. The architecture of the place is a wow and a great change from the normal hotels and guest houses. The place is adorned with lots of artifacts and pictures of the past and has a great feel to the place.... More

the best thing about this place is the location. hidden in the hills on the outskirts of kandy, this lovely place is a bit hard to find without the help of a guide. but once you are there, you are in for a surprise, the hostess Upali was warm in welcoming us with her staff. the rooms are traditionally decorated...

What we enjoyed the most during our stay is the friendliness of the staff. They were really helpfull in finding us a driver to go visiting the temples on a day. We had the king suite, it was really spacious and with all we could expect. However they should be carefull to maintain it to a certain standard, the room... More

Had 3 nights here recently which were very relaxing. it's up in the mountains which means that the Views from the hotel rooms and balcony are beautiful! Its great location in the hills though means you can't walk into Kandy and have to get tuk tuks or cars which is very easy and works out as about £2.50 each way... More
