We loved our stay at The Richmond House. Walking up the front steps and into the foyer we were transported to a bygone era. Nuwan and staff were welcoming, informative and helpful. The Governors Suite was charming, comfortable and offered beautiful views of Kandy & surrounds. Meals were freshly prepared and good. A steep, windy 400LKR tuk tuk ride gets... More

Second hotel out of five stayed in during our tour of Sri Lanka, beautiful colonial interior, clean rooms, good bathrooms, wifi, buffet food acceptable but not the freshest or hottest, staff helpful when needed but not overly attentive whilst dining. Would definitely stay again.

The Richmond house is an old British bungalow converted now into a hotel. The location this bungalow is on top of a hillock just outside Kandy city. The approach to the hotel is bit narrow and the entrance to the hotel is very steep. Once you enter the bungalow you will be amazed by the interiors. Suddenly you'll go back... More

We stayed 3 nights in Kandy in March. We stayed one night in a normal room, then in the suite. Both rooms were good. The suite was very good and well worth the additional amount.

Traditional decoration, location, views and helpful staff, make this a good place to base yourself on the outskirts of Kandy. The architecture of the place is a wow and a great change from the normal hotels and guest houses. The place is adorned with lots of artifacts and pictures of the past and has a great feel to the place.... More
