We had wonderful time for few days. There is nice traditionally decorated place with great location, hotel is very clean with friendly staff. Our room was big and very comfortable, with balcony. But the breakfast was unsubstantial...

the best thing about this place is the location. hidden in the hills on the outskirts of kandy, this lovely place is a bit hard to find without the help of a guide. but once you are there, you are in for a surprise, the hostess Upali was warm in welcoming us with her staff. the rooms are traditionally decorated which reflects the taste of the hosts and I did take a liking to the cleanliness of the place. the dinner was just awesome upali had cooked a great dinner at such short notice.
the best part of the stay was the breakfast! cooked according to our specific requirements we thoroughly enjoyed breakfast.
the staff were very courteous and had a big
smile for what ever help u ask for. very knowledgeable staff with where to go and what time to go around in kandy.

definitely will go back to this place next time I'm in kandy.

What we enjoyed the most during our stay is the friendliness of the staff. They were really helpfull in finding us a driver to go visiting the temples on a day. We had the king suite, it was really spacious and with all we could expect. However they should be carefull to maintain it to a certain standard, the room could be refreshed, the mosquitos net was wrecked with holes and hanging bites, the towels were not really white anymore. The breakfast is quite basic. The hotels is easily accessible by tuktuk from kandy.

Room Tip: The king's suite is on the last floor with an amazing view but the bed linens and towels could b...

Had 3 nights here recently which were very relaxing. it's up in the mountains which means that the Views from the hotel rooms and balcony are beautiful! Its great location in the hills though means you can't walk into Kandy and have to get tuk tuks or cars which is very easy and works out as about £2.50 each way which can add up for travellers on a budget. One thing that let's this place down is the food- breakfast is a buffet which stands around for a few hours! Attitude of hotel manager when arranging price of cars for next bit of journey became a bit confrontational which was a shame as the other staff were very helpful

We are a family from India been to kandy for 3 days and stayed at Richmond house.
Great choice we made!! we only booked standard family room but they upgrade us to One of their
deluxe rooms.Big room with one extra bed made our stay a really comfortable one .
we used a private car with driver they provide drivers accommodation free of charge.
Kandy is a good place to base for 3/4 days to visit Sigiriya-Dambull-Nuwara Eliya .And do not forget to stay at Richmond house They will give you the best service.

Room Tip: Higher Floors have good views.

We arrived in Kandy late in the afternoon - just in time to view sunset from the balcony of our room. The view from The Richmond House is amazing and well-worth the winding drive up the hill to the property.

The rooms were well-furnished and had a quirky, eclectic, post-colonial look to them that we found very charming. We booked a suite and a deluxe room, and it fit six of us perfectly. The suite was very spacious, while the deluxe room was much smaller. We had some air conditioning problems in the deluxe room but overall our stay was pleasant.

We had dinner at the hotel on one night, which was quite good value for money. Service was great throughout our stay.

Traveled as a family of six, staying for two nights.

Room Tip: The suite is very value for money if you're traveling in a group of four.
