Our stay here was pleasant; very friendly staff greeted us on arrival and showed us our room. The hotel itself has character and is well presented, although our room would have benefitted from a little TLC. The view from our balcony was stunning, as was that from the below terrace where we ate breakfast. The balcony provided an amazing vantage...

When we were arriving I already was looking for new accommodations in Kandy centre because of the constructions going on and the remoteness of the hotel. This hotel is certainly not in Kandy central.

We stayed for 1 night in the Richmond House. The room is very comfortable and nicely decorated. The view from our balcony was very beautiful both in the morning and at night. The Sri Lankan set menu and the curry served at the hotel was very delicious. We loved the roti! The staff were patient and helpful. A great experience!...

We loved this place. We are a family of four and got the presidential suite at the top of the hotel which was huge, beautifully designed and had the most wonderful views over the crazy city of Kandy.
