Richmond House is a perfect place for people who want to disconnect with the world. It is located on a hill in Kandy with breath taking views. The best part is that when you wake up, you see beautiful hills and trains cutting through it. The place is a bit rundown, but that’s not a bother. The staff is very...

It's a really pretty boutique place. Lovely and spacious rooms with excellent food. They had a lovely private garden and a great view of the city For some reason our suite did not have a phone to call guest relations(queen suite). We hope they add that soon.

Stayed here for a night while visiting Kandy. As other reviews have said they have a great view which most the rooms seem to look out on.
