Helpful staff, decent place”
Location wise it is pretty okay, however some taxi drivers may have problems finding the location but thats not a very big problem. There is also a supermart nearby. Staff are nice and helpful, room is clean and well made up and breakfast is relatively good. Only drawback is the intermittent wifi.

Know where it is!”
So we were not really familiar with Colombo at that point. Honestly unless you're really on a budget I think it's better to stay in a hotel with a pool on site, which this one does not have. There really isn't a lot around it to do, and 'town' is further away than we understood. The place itself is quite nice, very nice furniture and decoration, and the rooms were large and comfortable. Breakfast was very generous and the staff was super accommodating.

Rooms are excellent except that bathroom doors need to be repaired as these doors were not closing properly and you couldn't lock them. This is rather embracing once you are in bathroom and door is not locked. This I have pointed out at the property.

The hotel was a great stay and was really clean. the bedroom is really amazing for the price. the property is small but really well kept and very good for family stay. I would highly recommend this hotel. the supermarket right opposite the hotel is a bonus.

Good hotel with couple of small problems”
Firstly location of the Richmond house is not in the centre and about 20 minutes drive to the Colombo Fort area(main centre of town). But rickshaws are very cheap and plentiful outside the hotel,all metred and charging about 400 Sri Lankan rupees to centre and there is a bus stop also just outside the hotel. Exactly opposite is a big supermarket staying open till 10:30 pm. And around are many restaurants and shops. Even though the road is busy, the rooms face onto the backside of the hotel which is quiet. The manager at reception is very pleasant and helpful and so are his staff , so there is nice atmosphere. Now the first room I was in had a huge bed in a huge room, the trouble being there was a canopy surrounding the bed and so couldn’t even see the tv properly. The room being so large, It took a long time to cool down with the ac. I moved rooms to a similar sized room but with less of a canopy around the bed. So the room is almost to big for me and the ac is positioned by the window and the bed is around the corner and so am far away from the ac. I do feel the ac, but not as cold as would like, I do like a v.cold ac There is also a quiet view from window/balcony of some trees and backside of some buildings,quiet pleasant, but again can’t see the window from my bed. The bathroom is a good size with walk in shower, but the water pressure is not so strong. There is sufficient mirroring, lighting and plugs around room The WiFi is fantastic. Super fast as each room has its own router and so am very happy there. The lcd tv is a big size and has news channels like CNN The rooms are also very clean, very spacious and cannot hear much external noise. Breakfast is on the top floor and is ala Carte and so I can order as much as I like and I do order a lot.However I do prefer buffets. But still is ok Overall a good experience. Good value for a hotel in Colombo. Safe and pleasant atmosphere

We stayed here overnight while traveling through Colombo and were very pleased with the service and comfort provided. This is a small hotel so you may find yourself to be the only guest there and have a very personal experience with the staff.

A nicely appointed place amid the bustle of Colombo ”
The staff were helpful and genuinely friendly. A little issue with Internet was resolved with no fuss. The manager went above and beyond helping with train tickets, etc.. Decor was well-done and authentic, the food pleasant.

A virtual oasis for first time visitors ”
There was the most charming canopied bed with an utterly perfect mattress after a many hours travelling by air. At first I was disappointed that there was only a shower. However I was wrong to think that as the shower head made one feel one was showering in the rain it was so delightful. We also appreciated that the hotel arranged for a pick up on our arrival with an very nice young man. He also drove us back to the airport at an ungodly hour. The manager of the hotel made some excellent recommendations for dinner which proved to be very tasty.

Unique accommodation in Colombo suburb”
We were in Colombo visiting relatives and needed somewhere to stay that was not in the centre of town and was walking distance in the Nugegoda area. This was ideal. We dined in on some occasions and the rice and curry option was very tasty. Breakfast was also very good. The hotel recently opened and has been fitted out to a high standard. We will definitely stay again.

Good stay”
We chose this hotel for a night's stay at colombo during start of our tour of Sri Lanka. Not at heart of the city , but in outskirts. Right opposite to this hotel is a supermarket. Since we were on a driving holiday this hotel was ideal for us to shop before start of our drive. Rooms were comfortable and clean.

Spotless, professional staff - great experience”
Comfy bed, comfy room, spotlessly clean. Gogeously appointed rooms. Solid a/c. Keels across the street, Cargills quite close. ATM with Cirrus close by. NAMASTE restaurant close by with take out option. Lots of little restaurants close by. Hotel brekkie was very good and professionally served (go for the Sri Lankan brekkie ... string hoppers, daal and curries). A wonderful experience overall.

Friendly and comfortable stay”
This was my first stop in Sri Lanka and the staff were beyond helpful in orientating me and providing me with all the information I needed to make the most of my stay and to plan my onward journey. The room itself was lovely and huge with all mod-cons (air conditioning, wifi, hot water, TV, bottled drinking water) - if only every place I stayed after was to the same high standard! It is quite far out from the centre of Colombo but the local bus stop is right out the front and an easy ride into town (not to mention a fun local experience and only RPS20). Take the hotel details with you, including phone number, to help with getting a tuk tuk back if need be.

A Gem”
Colombo hotels were filling up due to a cricket event while I was online when I found The Richmond House. What a find! This place is new, five spacious rooms done in a Sri Lankan colonial motif with wood furniture, four poster beds and clean lines. Rooms have large windows and balconies. White tile floors with a sharp b&w tile bath. Staff is tops. The manager was so helpful and friendly. Airport pick is reasonably priced. Bus line right out the front door or take a trishaw to town center. The cost savings is worth. Agoda had a discount offering and I ended up paying less than half what I pay in town center. I love this place and will return on my next trip. Beds have western mattresses, a real plus! Rooms are located away from the street so it is quiet.

Lovely place, great stay. ”
Our stay here was very nice and we couldn't have asked for more from the staff. After arriving late with no baggage and quite a delay at the airport they prepared us dinner. And by dinner I mean a banquet! Freshly prepared Sri Lankan curry at its finest! The room was lovely, very spacious and done to a high standard. Great location just outside the city. Would definitely stay again.
