We stayed here for three nights in January, taking the suite having communicated with other Tripadvisor reviewers who had stayed and what good advice it was! The suite is on the top floor with a narrow balcony, large bathroom, amazing views and access to the private dining area on the top floor where we had breakfast every day. The bed... More

Very happy with our stay here. The staff were so welcoming and friendly - very helpful and professional throughout our stay. We ate supper here both nights and the food was good - not great, but good. On the first night we were able to dine on the top floor private balcony which was wonderful. Very romantic with the misty... More

We stayed in The RIchmond House last August in time for Esala Perahera. The place is gorgeous and the people are very friendly, but I am lowering the rating for a few reasons. It is pretty inconveniently located, and the food, which they were continually trying to push on us, was actually bad, by far the worst we had in... More

We were so happy staying at the richmond house for 5 days in January. The owner, Mr Upali and staff couldn't have been more hospitable and generous with their time. The food was superb, best Sri Lankan cuisine cooked by Mrs Upali. We treated ourselves to the suite which was enormous, comfy with stupendous views of the whole city, not... More

Very happy with our two night stay at Richmond Hill guesthouse. Only a short ride out of Kandy (5mins), but it's worthwhile getting out of the polluted city. These guys sit high on the hill with an amazing view - and it's very peaceful. Rooms are the best my wife abd i have stayed in after 7 weeks travelling Sri... More

I stayed at Richmond House at the end of the December with my partner and it was one of the nicest experiences we had in Sri Lanka. The hospitality was great - very nice friendly staff, one of the best (if not the best) Sri Lankan curries we had, gorgeous views and a very nice room. The only negative point... More

Look nowhere else in Kandy. Mr. Upali and his team are just amazing. They epitomize Sri Lankan hospitality. I would stay there every time I visit Sri Lanka. One caveat, if you are with your family making daily trips from the hotel into the city and back may be a challenge if you don't have your own transport. It's quite... More
