What an amazing find. But don't find it yourself! At the top of the hill overlooking Kandy this property it is up some steep small tracks - some tuk tuk drivers and even driver guides couldn't find it so please do yourself a favour and get the hotel driver to come down to find you in Kandy and take you...

I and my family stayed at this hotel end of Oct. My family were glad to book this hotel and room. Because we can see beatiful view and large room. Good point: beatiful view, large room, bathtub, breakfast, negative point: far from Kandy city center We want to come this hotel again.

We spent 3 nights at Richmond House in October 2016 on our honeymoon. We were upgraded to the Planters Suite which was great, with a dangling wicker chair, sofa and beautiful bed overlooking the valley. All the staff were very helpful and the tuk-tuks that they arranged (and which we paid at the end of our stay) were reasonably priced...

I loved my four nights at the Richmond House in Kandy. The views are amazing. I would definitely recommend sticking around the house for a sunset, it was spectacular. The staff was super helpful, always ready to call a Tuk Tuk when I needed to get into town. They are great guys and super interesting to talk to. Breakfast and...

Awesome!!! Fabulous!!! I don't have words to describe this place and our experience. This was our second stay after reaching Sri Lanka. It was a topsy-turvy drive to reach the hotel while navigating narrow roads on a mountain. But it was worth the wait. One must strive for the location of this place, you are really on top of Kandy,...

We recently had the most delightful stay at this comfortable location. Easy tuk tuk ride to town or walk down hill and catch bus. Nuwan and the staff were all attentive and very helpful, thanks Nuwan for arranging many of our transport needs. Great room, great views and Highly recommend for a relaxing stay in Kandy.

Best view in Kandy, incredible chefs, great service. Our taxi took us up the steep drive to the entry, completely magical stay. We loved the room and the bath. We sat on the balcony overlooking the valley and mountains with the full moon lighting it up. So much to do in town the next day, and we also hiked in...

We stayed here towards the end of September 2016 for 4 nights - Nuwan, speaks excellent English, and he and his team couldn't have been more polite or helpful. There is a sense of relaxed calm at the hotel that we really appreciated. Our room had both A/C and a ceiling Fan. And the view from our room was stunning...

15 mins from Kandy town, up a mountain - do not attempt to walk up the hill! I had a lovely room with four-poster bed and balcony. There are incredible views to be had. We ate in the restaurant - five delicious curries including chicken, fish and aubergine. Breakfast food too. Recommended.
