The Richmond house is about 10mins outside of Kandy in the hills, about 500rups in a tuk tuk into the centre ( less if you haggle), it is up steeps hills followed by steeps stairs however it is worth it for the view over kandy and to watch the sun go down and storms over hills miles away. We had...

We travelled as a family of five and though the rooms were big enough to fit five persons we decided on staying in two rooms: The Governors suite and The Queens suite. The only fault I can find in the Queens suite is the fact that it is a bit too damp, but it was no where bad enough for...

Through our fault entirely we had made a mistake with dates when booking this hotel. We only realised this when travelling across from Ella the day before. We had booked the King's Suite for 2 nights and by luck we could still have that room for the first night, but had to move over to room 6 for our second...

Booked a suite here, and what a magnificent room - the place was stylish and very clean - the balcony view was exceptional - worth every penny. The hotel is slightly out the way but in my opinion worth the journey.

This hotel is a few minutes out of Kandy city centre which we thought would be a bit of an inconvenience, turned out to be a blessing, it was just a short ride into town which was a fun ride in a tuk tuk that the hotel organises for you. The rooms were amazing, the breakfast was great and was...

Booked for two nights in February. Arrived with great difficulty finding the place. Up an extremely steep hill a long way from Kandy. Even steeper drive to the hotel entrance.
