The hotel is well maintained with a feel of history. The public areas are extremely pleasant. We spent time in the bar which was very relaxing. The rooms are comfortable with...

Everything was great about our top-floor room with a large balcony and view of the park and lake, except for a pillar jutting into the room (702) that created a slightly cramped feeling. Great service and amazing breakfast included.

I spent one night and almost two days at Le Richmond to start a family vacation in Europe. The staff was polite, professional and accommodating.

Bottom line I will definitely return to this hotel.
