Large colonial house on steep hillside. Impressive staircase and stunning views of the town and hills. Large en suite bedroom with big comfortable 4 poster bed and balcony. Unfortunately decor is worn and tired. The room could do with a deep clean. We were disappointed that this was not done despite bringing it to management attention. Food was only average...

Our family of five spent two nights at The Richmond House. We loved the colonial charm of this converted old house, with lots of antiques, historic photos and great atmosphere. We had the King suite which was huge, with a big four poster bed, antique style furniture and a great verandah with gorgeous views out over Kandy. We enjoyed the...

We had a wonderful time at this lovely early 20th century house. Despite awful weather for most of the stay, we were made most welcome by the friendly staff. The room was comfortable and when the cloud cleared, excellent views of the city were to be seen. Our 4 year old son was made most welcome and despite his constant...

A nice converted house on a hilltop overloking the busy suberbs of Kandy. It is a bit far away from the city. The room was good except the bathroom was a bit dirty with mild growing on the tiles and curtains. The staf and food where excelent.

I stayed with my husband and parents at Richmond House for 2 nights. It's a converted plantation bungalow, high on the hill above Kandy with amazing views looking over the city and surrounds. It does take 30min or so to get into the city centre but I preferred being slightly further out. We had standard rooms which were large with...

We generally had a pleasant stay at this hotel. Rooms were clean and well appointed. Free wifi was a bonus. Breakfast was alright, nothing fantastic but good enough. Our only issue was how far it was from Kandy.

Enjoyed the stay for two nights very much. Much as per reviews, a bit dated but I liked the atmosphere, and the old colonial era photos on the stairs! Got an upgrade to Planters Suite, which has a balcony and this for me was a hilight. Watching the sun rise over Kandy is a memory I will keep forever. Yes...
