    5/5 Excellent

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    We had a good time at Rivorich residence - The owner stayed late to check us in, and also gave us a lift back to town to get some food. The place is a little bit of of Kandy town centre, but worth staying at for the spacious clean rooms & nice big balconys.

    Peaceful location

    While the property was a little out of town , it had a nice quiet outlook over the river valley. Buses ran past the top of the driveway and tuk tuks plentiful. Being right in Kandy could be a bit noisy .The owner drove us into the train station when we left . Geeth ( the owner) and his assistant we're always available to assist on any way they could.

    'Welcoming, peaceful and trust worthy’

    Around a 25min Tuk-Tuk journey (400rupees) from Kandy station you will find the quiet Rivorich Hotel. Run by 2 very welcoming staff, the hotel is clean and a welcome relief from the busy city. The rooms are fitted nicely, with clean towels and comfy beds and the all important air conditioning fan combo made for a comfortable night sleep. Breakfast, included in the price, always filled us up for the day and was served at guests chosen time. Top tips: the hotel manager is a great source of knowledge and truly cares for his guests. We were fortunate enough to hire him to drive us to some of the best sites such as Sigiriya and the surrounding temples. He was happy to let us roam and pick us up when needed. I'm not sure he can provide this service in peak times. However, asking his advice and whether he knows a trusted guide or driver will ensure you get a fair price.

    Quiet getaway (for families) out of city

    This is the place to stay if you are looking for a bit of quiet from the town of Kandy. This is a great place for a family stay. Spacious room with a balcony view of the river. Good wifi. We were a family of three, including a 3-year-old, and this was the perfect base for our exploration of Kandy. We woke up every morning and fell asleep every night to the sound of river, birds chirping, etc. Geeth and his wife were wonderful hosts. They gave us two options for breakfast - we had a "Western" breakfast the first day and opted for the Sri Lankan breakfast all other mornings. It was delicious. We also had dinner in one night and that was also wonderful. Again, the location is outside the main town -- about a 5-10 minute tuk tuk ride, which cost 350 Sri Lankan rupees.
