    Great Choice in Kandy

    Wonderful rooms and hospitality overlooking the city. Would highly recommend. The hotel manager was fantastic and very accommodating. Meals were good. We were a large party and had much of the hotel to ourselves in the main building (there is another across the street).

  • 6.0.Good

    All rooms had balconies with a pleasant view. We saw lots of monkeys frolicking on the roofs of adjacent buildings. Not much in the way of grounds or other facilities but the lobby was comfortable.

    The Richmond House was one of the best venues we stayed at during our visit to Sri Lanka. The staff was wonderful and made sure we saw what we wanted to see during our stay. We were able to book the car and driver while we stayed and he went above and beyond in getting us to our next destination. Very beautiful and worth every penny we spent- and very reasonable in prices. Fabulous experience and recommend the establishment to anyone wishing to stay in Kandy.

    Great place but little out of the way

    Lovely room with great views of Kandy. Excellent food with friendly staff. Only problem is steep narrow road to hotel and bit out of the way. We had a driver with car so was OK

    Great option is staying in Kandy

    Large spacious rooms and very friendly staff. We got a free upgrade to a suite which was huge and had spectacular views over the valley in Kandy. The room had everything needed and was very comfortable. Good selection at breakfast with staff always on hand to assist. Very close to Kandy so handy for trips around the area.
