Looking for rest and relaxation, stayed for one night. Warm welcome given by the owner who was clearly passionate about his business and quite rightly so. Wonderful service, splendid pre-dinner drinks and exquisite food. This hotel delivered everything we could have asked for and the room had perhaps the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in. We will return.

The team worked effectively to create an enjoyable evening. Drinks were served in an attractive warm room followed by a delicious meal served in a quirky dining area. Our party of four enjoyed our choices, I particularly enjoyed my salmon starter and monk fish main. We greatly enjoyed the quality of service and food at both breakfasts especially creamed porridge... More

Dave, I’d just like to thank you and all your staff for affording Sue & I a great welcome and for treating us like kings over the weekend.

The place itself is amazing, we decided to stay and the rooms... More

We had the set 3 course Menu at Frenchgate Restaurant, and it didn't disappoint.....In all honesty, I could have forgone the desert, as there was a pre-starter and a taster desert prior the the main desert......nevertheless, fine dining.

David and his staff are amazing. Excellent service starting with cocktails in the drawing room, wine parings with each course, and amazing deserts. We had the beef and pheasant and both were delicious. Was amazingly relaxing dinner and evening.

In a great position on a lovely cobbled street overlooking the old Abbey and just a few minutes walk into the square. The owner and staff were all very friendly and accomodating, my room, although small was clean and very nicely decorated and presented...just the ticket. Breakfast didn`t disappoint either, great quality and serving staff very nice. Definately recommend The... More

Right in the center of Richmond (there is parking!) a nice hotel, nice rooms, needs some maintenance (despite the owner's saying:"it's from yesterday's rain..."). Watch the restaurant prices: you pay the same 39 pounds if you eat a whole meal or just a baked potato.
