              ON TOP OF THE WORLD”

              Warm-hearted hospitality, location and decor.

              Kandy, the last capital of the Sinhala kings, is a great place to visit to get a sense of Sri Lanka’s intriguing past. There are some must-sees there like the sacred Temple of the Tooth, Kandy Lake and Richmond House. Perched atop its namesake hill, the Richmond House boutique hotel has been lovingly built from the ground up by the Hettiarachchi family who also manage it. While the grand staircases and décor are something to behold, so is the homespun hospitality. My husband, Kuldip and I spent three nights there and enjoyed every moment of it. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we arrived at the hotel, unannounced, one day early. When we got there, the type of room we had booked was unavailable. Our hosts, however, upgraded us to their last room, the “Governor’s Suite” or honeymoon suite, which was like stepping into heaven on earth. Upali and his family are currently adding another room, the “Queen’s Suite” that I was fortunate to see in the making. It will be extraordinary when finished. After a day’s sightseeing, the Richmond House boutique hotel is a haven to return to for dinner. As well as the warm-hearted hospitality, to watch the sunset from the balcony there also makes you feel on top of the world. Do yourself a favour and stay at the Richmond Hill boutique hotel if you can.

              I loved the place”

              View, comfort of the room, balcony

              We had booked a de luxe room, but were upgraded to Planter's suite. I loved it. The bed was good, there was a seating area, frigde, kettle, balcony with chairs, in other words: all we needed. The view from the veranda was fantastic. We stayed 2 nights and had dinner at Richmond House both nights, every time buffet dinner. The food was OK, but neither my husband or I am very fond of buffets. I see that some people think it's a bit far out of Kandy town, but we didn't mind. We did the things we wanted to do in Kandy centre during the day, (botanical garden, Buddhas tooth, shopping, walking around, cultural dance, and was more than satisfied with that. On the contrary we loved to stay at the hotel in the evenings and mornings (good breakfast). And if you want to go in to town, the staff will help you getting a tuk tuk.The staff was also very nice and serviceminded. So was the owner. They are now building 12 (?) new rooms below the old house, but I think I would like to stay in the fantastic original building, with stairs that remind you of the movie "Gone with the wind".

The staff was friendly and helpful, providing us with tips on where to go as well as helping us find transportation for our various day trips from Kandy. The hotel sits on a hill with gorgeous, panoramic views of Kandy. We all loved watching the sunset from our balcony every evening. There is no pool here but Amaya Hills is a short tuk tuk ride away, which has a nice pool and spa.

              Clean comfortable room, amazing view, attentive staff

              From our arrival to our departure, we stayed for four nights, I have nothing but praise for this hotel. Positioned high in the hills a few kilometres outside of Kandy means you have uninterrupted views for miles. Our arrival experience was unhurried, we were given a cold glass of fresh juice on arrival before being taken to our room. A large spacious room which smelt of clean linen, so fresh. Our four poster bed was really comfortable and large bathroom with bath and over bath shower was hot and had good pressure. We stayed in room 5. When the hotel is busy they operate a Sri Lankan buffet dinner which was good quality and had lots of choice, priced at 1200 rupees £6.00 a head it was amazing value. Breakfast was also buffet a mix of Western and Sri Lankan dishes plus yoghurts and plenty of fresh fruit. The manager was a great help to us in suggesting things to do and we found all the staff to be friendly and attentive. On our last night we were going to be the only residents and so we were kindly offered to upgrade for the night into the suite at no extra charge - it was such a lovely gesture, but as we had quite a packed travel itinerary staying in lots of different places we chose to stay put as our room was very comfortable. That evening they set us up a table for dinner at the very top floor of the hotel on a large balcony terrace, such a lovely thought, the view over the low lying towns and across to the hills was just stunning. The journey into Kandy takes around 15mins. If you walk along the short lane from the hotel to the main road you will easily pick up a tuk tuk for around 300 rupees into Kandy. It'll cost you more like 4-500 to return as the hill is very long and steep - it's still a bargain for £2.50. It's a very steep climb from the hotel car park into the hotel, but well worth the effort. A lovely hotel that we hope to return to.

              Great view, a fun tuktuk ride up from Kandy center, freindly staff, good wifi.

              A delightful guest house overlooking western Kandy. Perched high on a hillside providing a magnificent view of the surrounding area. About a $5 US tuktuk ride from Kandy Center that takes anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes. The food was adequate, the wifi worked great for me and the staff was very friendly and accomodating. I met the owners and found them to be very nice and welcoming people who were eager to please. If you have difficulty walking up inclines or stairs, you might want to stay somewhere else. Actually, you might want to find another country to holiday in. Overall I found Richmond House to be a good value and I will stay there on my next visit.

              Can't beat staying at The Richmond House”

              Classy place to stay.....good price and the the staff goes way and beyond for service

              This is the classic plantation house sitting high upon a hill overlooking Kanda. While the view is just so-so the hotel and staff are not! They're a first class act all the way around. We were up in room four at the head of the stairs. The room was clean and comfortable and well appointed. The meals were very good and in a glass enclosed room with a view. The music playing in the grand reception room was so delightful that I asked the management for a copy of the disc and within 3 hours he was at our room with it. I'd recommend The Richmond House for any and all visitors to Kandy

              We stayed at The Richmond House Hotel for two nights. The staff were great the room was comfortable and the food was very good. I'm not a big guy but when standing in the bath to shower it felt like it might give way at any point which was a little disconcerting. The other thing to consider is that this hotel is 4.5km from Kandy up a very steep hill and you will require a tuk tuk to go into Kandy (At time of writing a tuk tuk to the centre of Kandy was 500 Rs max).

              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.

              Stayed 2 nights and from start to finish the staff could not do enough for us, so warm, friendly and helpful. Going to the hotel you can be forgiven for thinking "where the hell are we going?" As it's on a mountainside, but rewarded with a brilliant panaromic view of Kandy. There are stairs inside the beautiful house as well, we stayed in the kings suite and had plenty of room for all four of us. Breakfast was nice and dinner buffet very good price for the food. Would happily stay there again and recommend it easily.

              What a gem”

              The hotel is located on a hillside overlooking the entire valley of Kandy city. The view from my room and meals was amazing! Meals were tasty. Not buffet styled though as there were only a few guests. Juices were with sugar added so remember to tell them when u order if you don't want super sweet juices. The ride up to the hotel can take 20 mins from Kandy town and the slopes can be pretty steep. However the hotel can provide drop-off and pick-ups with the in-house tuk tuk, and the price for such arrangements are very fair too (SLR 500). The room and the building were beautiful colonial style but indeed a bit rundown. No hairdryer but air conditioning works great.

It is out of the centre and therefore not noisy plus everything you need can be arranged by the staff. From the minute we arrived we were welcomed with beaming smiles. Nothing was too much trouble. We were backpacking for the rest of our trip and our night here was the highlight -a real treat!!! I cannot recommend the hotel enough. They helped us to arrange a driver the next day and even suggested we explored Kandy at our leisure after check out because the driver could bring our big bags to meet us in town(rather than us having to return to the hotel). Amazingly helpful.

              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.
