Held a business event here (just five of us) on 20/21 April 2017. Started badly from a personal perspective since the room I'd been given was ridiculously small. I complained and eventually received an upgrade to something a little more spacious. The eye for detail around the organisation of our event was poor. There were five in our party but...

What a wonderfully quiet and elegant hotel in delightful grounds. The staff were helpful and attentive without being intrusive. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. Wonderfully calm and relaxed breakfast in the restaurant with historic views to the Thames. An excellent base for exploring Richmond Park and Hampton Court Palace and riverside walks. Stayed for two superb nights.

"Petersham Hotel, Richmond  - where our family of 5 stayed 2 nights this Easter -  missed a great opportunity to show a friendly attitude and a concern for their clients. My mobile phone was stolen by someone on the premises of the hotel.  I had forgotten it at a table in the bar, a part of the dining room to...

Great location, decent rooms, good value but odd service and a bit "cheap". Stayed here in between my home move in Richmond and from checking in when the system were broken/not running (they weren't for the five nights I was there), to the gentleman at reception writing my credit card number down (much to my horror). To incompetent room service...

We used the Petersham as a base for the weekend of our wedding in early April - from dinner on the Friday night through to the busy-ness of wedding preparations on the Saturday morning and check out on the Sunday, nothing was too much trouble & we were so pleased to have made the decision to base ourselves & our...

My wife and I stayed at the Petersham to celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. Since we don't live in Richmond anymore we thought we'd go back to our old stompin' ground to see some friends and remember old times. We simply had to stay at The Petersham since it's where we stayed the night of our wedding! We decided not...

This property is ideal for parents of students at the nearby American University. I've stayed here twice now, most recently departing yesterday. My room was a delux, Thames view room & pretty much perfect! I suggest opting for the deluxe room,especially if more than one person will be in the room, as my prior room was very small. The king...

I know that you can get good rooms and bad rooms in a hotel but this time I got an excellent room in the Petersham and I thoroughly enjoyed it. So this fact will bias my review but well done reservations you played a blinder. However, the thing irrespective of Room type that wins for me every time is Breakfast...

Bit formal and old school. Feels a bit like family serving you rather than a polished article. But genuine for that and I frankly couldn't fault either the food or the view. Would come back again and again.

Mother's Day tea. Window table with great views over Thames. Despite it being busy we received great service and there was plenty to eat. Glass of champagne was an extra. Not rushed, so take time to relax and talk.
