We found our hosts at Richmond House very friendly and extremely helpfull. In fact the owner helped us put our holiday plan together and organized a very reliable driver. The food was delicious and homely. It is up a very steep hill which makes for marvelous views and a very peaceful stay.

We visited Sri Lanka for our Wedding/honeymoon and Richmond House was our last stop before heading home. Although every place we stayed at was lovely, Richmond house had the extra little touches to make it special.

We stayed in a suite with remarkable views from the balcony. The room was clean, tidy and available for us when we arrived. The staff are friendly and helpful. They even arranged with my husband a private roof top dinner for our last night there.

A perfect ending to an amazing holiday.

I want to thank the team at Richmond House for all of their help and hard work. I will definately recommend you to anyone visiting Kandy.

We as a couple booked Richmond House for 3 nights,a suite.
very good and perfectly cleaned , nicely matched to its view and service.
but the best part is that they speak Japanese as normal as us.we were surprised.After a chat with the manager he explained me about how they studied in japan.As we booked this hotel
after reading the all Japanese reviews from Tripadvisor and we look through the hotel web site.It was in Japanese as well. we would highly recommend this hotel for anyone who wants to stay in kandy.

Room Tip: They have 2 new suites ,its very good.

Sorry for the title, it was my fiance's idea! Stayed in JULY 2011.

We stayed for 3 nights, and the place was bliss. We echo one of the posters statements that it is run by the nicest and friendliest people.

The views are spectacular over the lush green hills and the nights are mind-blowing, especially when we sat and ate on the top floor balcony, with huge bats flying by, squabbling and eating in the trees nearby (The bats, not us!!)

Getting there is an experience; the road is narrow and twisty like a noodle thrown against the wall. It taxed our little Mitsubishi 4x4 and our nerves, but the warm welcome on reaching the hotel was well worth it.

The location is slightly out of Kandy itself. Perhaps a 15 min drive into the centre,

Definitely will go there again.

We stayed here for 3 nights in February 2013 as part of a 30 day tour around Sri Lanka. The hotel is located at the top of the hill, you wind your way up the hill by car, you park and then walk a short distance up a steep drive to the grand entrance which has a number of steps. You arrive in a beautiful large, light and airy lounge with beautiful artefacts, sofas, chaise longue and an amazing fireplace. We were greeted with big smiles and fresh orange juice.

On either side of the beautiful lounge a staircase winds round to the first floor to the dining room. There are some bedrooms on this floor. We were shown to our room Number 5 on the second floor. It was a spacious room with a large bed with canopies / mosi net, the bed was very comfortable. The room has a wardrobe, table and two chairs, fridge, TV Kettle, Tea/Coffee but no hairdryer. Very comfortable room with Air Conditioning and a fan.

The bathroom had a bath with a shower over it. Plenty of hot water and very clean.

We had a nice balcony with a table and two chairs. The views were fantastic, especially to watch sunset with a cold beer.

A buffet breakfast was served each morning and we really enjoyed the good choice of botth Sri Lankan and Western food. We also ate here on the 3 nights that we stayed and again the food was a buffet, but we really enjoyed this.

Can't fault this place at all, excellent service and always a friendly smile

Room Tip: Room 5 is very good
