Pleasant Stay in Kandy”
• Fantastic food, curry dishes varied for the 3 dinners we had. Breakfast was good, requested traditional breakfast on the last day which was delicious • Friendly and helpful staff, Syombus at the restaurant always made sure that we have enough food. The chef did a great job, never disappoint by the food delivered. Ground staff are good enough to communicate in simple English and always happy to help • Clean room, daily housekeeping and toiletries refill • Located on higher side of the mountain about 10mins away from Kandy central. Peaceful stay and serene mountain view from the deluxe room with balcony. The photos advertised for deluxe shows much spacious room than what we got

Nice big room! You will need a vehicule to access the hotel from the city. The food at the hotel does not worth eating there. The staff is very nice and helpful.

Fantastic service”
We were supposed to stay for 3 nights but ended up staying for 4. Very quiet hotel out of city centre but only 10 mins by tuk tuk. Staff were amazing. Most comfortable bed in 6 weeks of travelling. Slight issue with payment on check out but was quickly sorted. Would recommend and would definitely stay again. Good breakfast as well

Very nice place just outside of Kandy. It takes about 3-5 minutes to get into town, but it's worth it for the views. The staff were friendly and helped with arranging car rides. Would definitely stay again.

Stunning views over kandy ”
The hotel staff we're exceptionally friendly and the manager extremely friendly and helpful. They arranged a taxi for us to visit Sigiria and also upgraded our room when they knew we were on our honeymoon . The views were absolutely stunning and the area quiet and peaceful away from the noisy busy city. Wi-Fi was ok, much like the rest of Sri Lanka. Breakfast and dinner was very good. Bed was very comfy. Only a 10 minute tuk tuk into the city. Kandy is interesting to wonder around but unfortunately there were some troubles whilst we were there so the curfew meant we needed to go back to our hotel. However this wasn't a problem as the hotel was so relaxing.

Upgraded from miscommunication but still disappointed”
Manager booked a tuk tuk without us confirming it, ended up with an aggressive tuk tuk driver charging us 800 rupees to take us to the hotel when we paid 300 instead after refusing him. Manager sided with tuk tuk driver. Manager upgraded us to a Governer's suite. Room was well-furnished and had a beautiful view. Electricity in room kept tripping and had cockroaches. Toilet smelled as well. Location is far from the city and terrible to get in and out from. Food isn't great either.

Nice scenery but poor location”
Situated up Richmond hill, you get wonderful stunning sunset & night view of Kandy town. Hotel is beautifully decorated and felt cozy. But there are no shops around, so top up another US$10 for a buffet dinner. Breakfast is normal. I definitely do not recommend you if you just finished Adam's peak, as the slopes from the reception to your room will further torture your legs. No lifts here, so please backpack only. By the way, tuk-tuk cost 500 rupees to city and at least 600 rupees from the city.

The hotel is high up on a narrow mountainous road but it's worth it for the view of Kandy from the room.

Not what I expected”
On arrival, the premises didn’t seem to be the same as pictured. We then found out that they had opened a second smaller building lower down the hill which had restricted views of Kandy. There was no room at the upper building so we had to take the room. The bar and roof terasse was shut in the upper building and the restaurant was in the basement of the lower building. The bar menu was what was left in a tall fridge. The food was basic, full of flies and left us with a bad belly the next day.

Friendly and efficient staff and management ”
Warm welcome and staff arranged an extra early check in without question. Minor repairs were carried out very quickly. No major issues occurred. Room pleasantly spacious and with a good view. Breakfasts and other meals were generous. Possible to walk into Kandy but we decided that a tuktuk ride is worth it especially dealing with the traffic in Kandy itself. Possibly the largest number of light switches I’ve encountered in a hotel room. Made remembering what switch to use for which light challenging.

V nice hotel, good facilities, helpful staff”
Very well equipped hotel/room, clean, comfortable bed. Location not far from Kandy so it's quiet with views across the city. Cheap tuk tuk gets you into town. We had breakfast and dinner. Dinner was more Sri Lankan. If u want wine/beer/spirit bring them with you otherwise hotel will get a tuk tuk to deliver them. Helpful staff.

The Richmond House Kandy was a fantastic place to stay! The food was excellent and the staff there I could not speak higher of. Nuwan Subash, Herath , Luxman, Bandara, Priyantha and Wilman were outstanding. I thoroughly recommend Richmond House to anyone who is staying in Kandy
