When I visited Riverdale Hotel with my friends, we had an really pleasant stay: Nice pool, very polite staff, great breakfast and even wi-fi. The only issue was the bedroom: The cleanness of the bedroom could be improved and most probably the bathroom. The bathroom was still small but overall I really enjoyed my stay.

Away from the town yet no scenic views this old establishment is in dire need of a competent manager. No tea/ coffee/ kettle provided in room. No bed tea. For tea you have to wait till Russel the front office manager arrives at 7.30am and go down to the restaurant. Even then they had mixed the two jugs-yes you read... More

Check in was quick! Rooms are packed with each other. May need to use stairs to go to the room but, have a spacious room with a TV, dressing table, wardrobe, and WiFi. Bathrooms are quite clean and big. Food was great. Indoor pool is small and just too near to the front desk. Not an appropriate place for a... More

I went for a school trip as a student and it was amazing! The staff gave us three options every night for dinner and we all chose which one and they gave us all and provided us with starters! It was certainly much different from the environment in Dubai! The staff were so friendly and responded to any needs they... More

Located just outside the Kandy main city, Riverdale hotel is a small yet a gear hotel The swimming pool is located inside the hotel, hence the natural sunlight is low. Beware of monkeys. Staff and the services are excellent.

Very convenient and calm location within close proximity of Kandy town. Rooms spacious and instant hotwater from taps. Clean rooms. Food was not the international standard but good. Garden was nicely kept. Our stay was brief to one night each.
