Fabulous 8.6 From 38 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice hotel up in the hills
We enjoyed our stay in this hotel which has a lovely view over Kandy. It’s a bit hard to get to, but OK by tuk tuk or car. It would be a long walk into town and an extreme climb back. The staff were very friendly and always trying to please.

Wonderful Hotel!
I was there for the first ten days in March, 2020 and really enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere and warm hospitality by the staff and owners. Would definitely return!

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).
Michael, us2 night trip with friends
Good 6.0
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

A grand old building indeed!
Great view of Kandy and the surrounding mountains from the balcony. A little tired looking overall but still a nice and interesting building. Very comfy beds. We enjoyed the buffet breakfast and also had a nice dinner there one evening. A bit of a mission getting up and down the hill but we were in a car so it wasn’t a problem for us. Staff were very attentive and friendly.

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.
