We stayed at Richmond House in September 2013 and only have good things to say about these guys. The service is spot on, you feel very looked after without being bothered which really works in this lovely colonial styled house. Nothing is a problem from organising transport and drivers to recommending places to eat, shop and visit. All of the...

We stayed 2 nights while visiting Kandy and it was worth the drive up with our driver each time. The view from our deluxe room was stunning. The room was very nice and had the best 4 poster bed with lace netting, just wonderful. Furniture in the room was good and the room was just the right size. Bathroom was...

We stayed here for 2 nights in January. Simply stunning setting of a colonial house on top of a hill slightly outside the town. The view is worth the effort to get there though. We ate in the restaurant 1 night and the food was excellent. Breakfasts were also good - made to order. Staff are great as the hotel...

Stayed 2 nights at this Guest house, it is an old colonial house, right at the top of a very steep hill, but the views from the rooms are wonderful. It is worth staying for the views alone, because everything else is distinctly average at best and the bathroom was frankly one star, in desperate need of renovation & effective...

Beautiful old colonial villa on the hill, tastefully decorated and the staff was very polite and helpful. They arranged all our trips and kept asking if everything was according to our taste - a little bit too much sometimes :). We loved the rooms: all spacious, clean, good hot and cold water, balcony and the big colonial bed is something...

We stayed for 3 nights and overall we were very disappointed considering the price. We stayed in other accommodation that was a third of the price and was much nicer! The bathrooms are in need of some attention, broken toilet seat, water pressure and temperature control were impossible to handle. The food was the worst we had in over 3...

Stayed for 2 nights but wished it could have been longer. Beautifully decorated rooms with a balcony to take the stunning views of Kandy below.

We stayed for 3 nights in December and enjoyed the peace and tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of Kandy central. A 10 minute tuk tuk drive out of Kandy and up the hill provided us with spectacular views over the valley from our balcony.
