We stayed at Richmond House on the recommendation of Trip Advisor and found it to be a very charming place to stay. It is located very high up in Kandy but tuk tuks and cars can reach it without too much of a problem. If travelling by tuk buk we recommend taking the hotel address and phone number as not everyone knew where it was. We stayed in the double deluxe room which had a beautiful view of Kandy, there is also very calm aura about the place which is a contrast to the hustle and bustle of Kandy itself. The room was very comfortable and a good place to relax after a day of sightseeing. The staff at Richmond House are impeccable and always ready to help in anyway. In particular, they have their own car which will drop and pick up guests and they can recommend local sights (ask about where to go for an excellent the ayurvedic massage!). We also found out that they can book observation seat train tickets in advance if you know what you're going to be travelling. The food at the hotel was also very good, excellent curry and good breakfasts.
