On the arrival the hotel from the outside is simply stunning with breathtaking views of the river from the bar area. Parking is a problem but that probably wasn't helped by he fact England were playing at Twickers that day so the hotel was probably fully booked. Our room was small but well appointed. Décor was 'old fashioned' and maybe... More

The view from the restaurant is beautiful. Friendly service but the food was disappointing. We took a friend for Sunday lunch. The presentation of the main course was awful, the pieces of meat were so large and looked uncouth on the plate. It made the food look unappetising. All three courses did not live up to our expectations. What a... More

Having driven around the N.Circular and the road networks surrounding Richmond it was refreshing to arrive at the Petersham. One was initially impressed by the imposing building and the relatively large car park stretching out in front of the hotel. Luckily, I found a space in the middle of the afternoon, but soon realised that there were more cars than... More

I stayed at the Petersham hotel with my partner for a long weekend and was very pleased. The room service was excellent. The food was good. Free parking is a bonus. Especially in Richmond. Highly recommended.

We took a lower price room for 2 nights, but quite adequate. Visiting to do the Richmond waterside 10k run. Overall hotel is really nice, well maintained, great staff, easy parking, great location overlooking the Thames. A little expensive for a tight budget but worth it just to have breakfast overlooking the river.

We stay at the Petersham Hotel every year to visit friends. Excellent staff, wonderful views and the restaurant is exceptional. Spend a bit more to include breakfast and get a room with a balcony overlooking the Thames.

We celebrated my birthday here this year with a dinner party for 22 friends in the Terrace Suite. From the initial enquiry through to the service and food on the night, everything was exceptional.

I stayed at the Petersham for business, but was able to enjoy the delicious food, the quaint and cozy bedroom and the beautiful view of the Thames. It's a great location within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. The hotel is historically beautiful and picturesque. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Overall, it was a very nice experience.

My partner & I stayed overnight as a celebration. We had an excellent time. The hotel is superb. The location is stunning, the building and its furnishings are first rate, and the service was excellent (friendly & efficient without being obtrusive). The room was well appointed, and the bed so comfortable that it was a wrench to check out! Breakfast... More
