Hotel Review | Richmond House Kandy, Sri Lanka

For those visiting Sri Lanka and planning to stay in Kandy, and looking for a quiet, cosy, quaint and friendly accommodation; this would be an ideal place.

Sri Lanka entries :
Day 1b | Pinnawala - Elephant Orphanage
Day 1c | Sri Lanka Beedi Cigarette & Giritale Sunset
Day 2a | Giritale Hotel And Environ 
Day 2b | Parakrama Samudra & Ancient City of Polonnaruwa (UNESCO)
Day 2c | Ancient City of Sigiriya & King Coconut (UNESCO)
Day 2d | Dambulla Cave Temple & Kandy at Sunset 

I stayed for 1 night here and regretted till this date. 

For one, I arrived at night around 9ish when the whole view was pitch black, to make matter worse; we almost got lost! Minimal street light to a point I thought the driver was going to sell me to some mobster or something (yeah yeah.... very drama of me, but I WAS panic then okay! Hehehhee...) in this semi jungle (it wasn't even close to a jungle), my imagination runs wild as usual.

So, upon arrival I was clearly fascinated of the guesthouse. Makes all the anger of getting lost, no street sign, no street light seems so minute - you will get to see the pictures later lar.

After checking into my princess room (felt like one!), surfing some net, I went to bed (what else for me to do right?!?! Semi jungle feel, remember!). The next morning, I woke to the below view and did my round of this guesthouse. This is when I start regretting staying for one night!

Hope you enjoy them pictures :)

Nice place. How did you book the room? Direct with the hotel or through a 3rd party? Do they offer pick up service?

its beautiful but atas bukit nala nye jauh. if nak lepak tak masuk town, then this is a great place. do attempt on foot tho.


i guna agent but you can do it via their website. they can arrange transfer as they own travel agency as well.
