This review is a little redundant as the manager informed me that they no longer get bookings online because their trip advisor rating is so poor, and I can only say that the ratings are a correct reflection of the reality. The hotel is very noisy, it all centres around a courtyard where the restaurant is so any people in...

When I visited Riverdale Hotel with my friends, we had an really pleasant stay: Nice pool, very polite staff, great breakfast and even wi-fi. The only issue was the bedroom: The cleanness of the bedroom could be improved and most probably the bathroom. The bathroom was still small but overall I really enjoyed my stay.

We stayed one night at Riverdale with the recommendations of some travelers we met during our trip and we were not disappointed. Room was clean food was good and price was correct for the all package. Good wifi.

Away from the town yet no scenic views this old establishment is in dire need of a competent manager. No tea/ coffee/ kettle provided in room. No bed tea. For tea you have to wait till Russel the front office manager arrives at 7.30am and go down to the restaurant. Even then they had mixed the two jugs-yes you read...

Check in was quick! Rooms are packed with each other. May need to use stairs to go to the room but, have a spacious room with a TV, dressing table, wardrobe, and WiFi. Bathrooms are quite clean and big. Food was great. Indoor pool is small and just too near to the front desk. Not an appropriate place for a...

I went for a school trip as a student and it was amazing! The staff gave us three options every night for dinner and we all chose which one and they gave us all and provided us with starters! It was certainly much different from the environment in Dubai! The staff were so friendly and responded to any needs they...

Located just outside the Kandy main city, Riverdale hotel is a small yet a gear hotel The swimming pool is located inside the hotel, hence the natural sunlight is low. Beware of monkeys. Staff and the services are excellent.
