We stayed at this place en route from Columbo to Trincomalee. It was a great choice - very lovely room with sitting garden out in from of our room. The view of Kandy was spectacular! The food served was OK, but not exceptional. There is a challenging road up to it, and it's a bit hard to find at in...

Perched on top of the hill overlooking Kandy , a great place to sit back and enjoy the views , hospitality and food. As it’s a little way out of Kandy and it can take a little while to make your way up the very steep hill but well worth it for the views alone. The overall service ………..help with...

We stayed two nights in the Planter's Suite at the very top of The Richmond House. Very recommendable especially when you travel with kids. The accommodation is away from the hassle of downtown Kandy, very calm, so cannot be recommended for the typical backpacking tourist. It was never a problem to get a tuk tuk from the town center to...
